Where Did All My Readers Go? (And 4 Other Thoughts I Had This Morning).






1. Yesterday though! Yesterday was Chocolate's daughter's first birthday party and it was a very veeeery beautiful occasion. I don't mean aesthetically, I mean the people, the ambience, the camaraderie. Most of us have known each other from way back and people came from far and wide. I hugged and kissed old friends, old class mates, an old boyfriend, an old crush and several acquaintances. It was truly beautiful. Happy 1st birthday darling Summer!


2. Today! Today is Yoko's daughter's christening and dedication. So I woke up wondering what time I'll go and what I'll wear and how nice it would be to be a Mum and how most of my friends are preggers with their second or third bambino and how I need to hurry up on that front and bless the world with my offspring *big grin*. Then back to what I'll wear and who I'll go with? To go alone and be forced to be more sociable (good thing) or to take a friend and gladly not mix (bad thing)?


3. Where did all my readers go? Since I'm awake I might as well flip through the blog. Flipped through, didn't look like Thelma Thinks to me! So, where's everyone and what's stopping y'all from commenting? In the past week I cannot count how many people cheerily said to me "I'm one of your silent readers", they say it expecting me to be happy or something but they have no idea that that's beginning to become one of my most dreaded statements. Yo, like, read, enjoy and drop a comment or two y'all. I love to talk but I hate talking to an empty room, it kills my vibe and dries up my juices. I'd sooner close shop than talk and have my echo respond. So what's the deal? I miss y'all. Talk to meeeeee!


4. HOTR or Divine Mercy? I really want to commune with God today, like really really. There's so much on my mind and I don't feel like my bedroom is the best place for this conversation. The thing is that at the former, it's singing & dancing, new teachings and whooping shouts, which might rob me to that quiet time my soul desires. At the latter, I get the quiet time that's characteristic of orthodox churches, but... 


5. What should I blog about today? Ideas anyone?...





Ps; I had to start approving comments as it's the only way around proving you're not a robot...

    1. Aha! True, Tolu. You've not really been 'here', even with your posts. Speaking for myself, I've been here everyday. I can't count how many times i refresh this page daily. I miss you and your 'original' blog style. I guess you need time, be assured we are here and not going anywhere. :)

    1. Life and death lies in the tongue. Please, speak life and always believe that God is able to preserve your baby and make your joy full. All is well with you and the little one inside of you in Jesus name. I pray that the same God who saw your mother through so that you were born will empower you to birth you baby at full term.

    2. Positive mental attitude Anon! You won't lose the baby! *hugs*

    3. This comment sent a shiver down my spine. Proclaim that which you want and if it's in alignment with God's plan for you then it shall come to pass. Your baby shall live if you believe and cry to God for life. I join with you in prayers for that life... May God grant that child not just today but many many tomorrows in Jesus Name

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
