Happy Birthday Sunshine. Kabuoy Wants You To Know Just How Special You Are.

Dear Sunshine,
I am not much of a writer and that's why when I saw the beautiful post about me on my birthday, I got scared. 
How was I gonna top that?!
Well, here we are! it's your birthday today!!! yaaaay!
I was gonna go with the cheesy "you bring sunshine into our lives and you're the best thing that ever happened since ikokore"... but we all know there's me soooo... looool!

I really don't know how to start so iv decided to write about what I love about you in no particular order and it is (sooo) not exhaustive.

Your patience: Recently, you put up a photo that read "I don't have a quick temper, I just have little toleration for bullshit" and I just did the yinmu! Who has a quick temper?! You'll just be making some of us look bad. You are one to walk out of a terrible situation unphased. I still don't know how you do it sometimes. 

Your beautiful hands: I say this literally and figuratively. You have that inborn ability to take things and make them beautiful. 

Your free-spiritedness: I really love this one. There are days i'm like really?! Really sunshine?! But I have seen the awesome advantages and believe me, iv come to love that about you.

Your terrible dance moves: there's one picture I have never been able to take out of my head. the picture of you doing the azonto! It's soo epic! It has refused to erase itself.

Your resilience: You are one of the most resilient people I know. Your ability to keep pushing when you're going through really tough situations is really inspiring. You never let things break you. You always come out stronger! 

Your ability to think deeply: I have consoled myself with the fact that this comes with experience so I should just give it time... loool. Very soon i'll be saying my own "words on marble".lol

Your jaiye lifestyle: we've always joked that your husband must be rich. Just so you can help him spend his money.. well, just in case he doesn't know how! Looool. 
You've shown me that life should be lived(enjoyed) and not endured.

Your courage: I used to be very upset and always wondered why you never stood up to *you know who* all those years, but I realized that courage is not necessarily in confrontations and putting up fights/causing a scene... the ability to keep calm, firm and brave in the face of trouble is true courage.

I can go on and on... 

I'm grateful to God for all he has brought us through. I know there are times you just want to break my head but you know you can't do without me... lool!

I love you from the bottom of my heart and in you, i'v found a best friend for life!!! I'm blessed and honored to have you as my sister. Thanks for being patient with me, for teaching me, for inspiring me  and for always making me proud.

I pray that the good Lord would grant all your heart desires. You have been made the head, you will never become tail. The Lord shall lift you up, and empower you with everything you need, to be who you are destined to be. You will fulfill divine destiny and purpose! 
You will not fail God and you will not fail your generation.

Keep shining Beautiful!!!!!

With Loads and loads of love and kisses,

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.

One More Post...


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
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


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…


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!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
