"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....!

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.

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 entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e 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 fiancΓ©? 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.

Scary af! Trish on the ramp. The chica loves the outdoors so much, she was like a kid in a candy store. She and Uyi took this walk twice! More power to them, you can't pay me to do this a second time.
