"I Love You Titi Lai!". Sunshine's Heartfelt Tribute To Kabuoy On Her Birthday.





Dear sister…

It is hard to say how much I love you

You might not believe it especially since I fight with you

But no matter how much we quarrel, I still adore you

Even when we don’t speak to each other, I like you

For a lot of good things in my life

I am grateful to you

I hope one day you can see through into my heart

And realize how much I am fond of you

 

And so 

As one more year in your life goes by

Remember to be happy instead of heaving a sigh

Think about the things that you have to achieve

Don’t abandon the dreams you weave

In your life may you always have your way

Happy birthday to my dearest sister, for you I will always pray

 

****

My sister is a gem, like, an actual gem. She’s the perfect example of beauty, brains and character. The funny thing about Kabuoy is, she used to be a not so good person. Like, we couldn’t have a conversation without turning it into a fight and boy did we fight! We kept the longest malice and she was great at it. She’d just x you from her memory and the thing would be paining me. She used to be real saucy and annoying you know, that child that fought with everyone, daddy, mummy, sisters, friends, etc without consequence but she always had the best friends. Those quiet girls who took all her sh*t and always begged her to be their friends again. I honestly couldn’t imagine marrying someone like her back then.

 

Fast forward a few years and the story is so different now, its hard to put today’s Kabouy beside the Kabuoy described above. She’s literally the sweetest and most humble of the both of us now. She has no appetite or energy to stomach any kind of fight that lasts more than one day. She’s very pleasant, a fantastic cook (like seriously!). Whenever an argument or discussion is escalating into a fight, she just finds a way to immediately turn it into a joke and we laugh and move on. On many days, I can’ imagine the Kabuoy I live with now is the same one I lived with my final year in school.

 

Over the past 3 years, she has changed into this absolutely beautiful woman, inside and out, she’s wiser, still intelligent (azzin efiko levels o) and a woman of God (when Kabuoyprays ehn!). I am so very proud of the wonderful woman you’ve become (even though I have somehow become the bad child…lol) and boy am I ever proud to be your sister. I’m grateful for all the time we have had together, our fights, our tears, our laughs, our trips, etc. I am grateful that I have such a strong ally, giving me sound advice like all the time, I’m grateful that even with all our roborebe, we still look up to each other, I’m grateful that you’re the one person who pushes me every time to be better, to aspire to bigger things, to demand respect and basically stand up for myself. Thank you for believing in me even when I don’t believe in myself.

 

I love you so very much sis, I wish you could see into my heart to know exactly how much. My prayer for you this day is that God would continue to mould you into the woman he’s making you into, that you continue to walk in the path that He has set for you, that you will soar high and continue to excel in all that you do, that you continue to grow in wisdom and knowledge, that God will in his own time give you that man that will cherish and compliment you in the best possible way. Dear sis, you are a star, a shining light and you will keep shining.

 

I love you titi lai!

 

Sunshine

    Meanwhile Sunshine this your description of Kabuoy sounds like you're measuring how many yards of wife material she is, I'd say 10,000 yards?

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…

#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....!
