I Guess Its Good To Be Good After All

There's a lake in my backyard ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ƒ
My bed feels like a cocoon, my comforter is so snug, its literally a comforter. I've just made breakfast, the fridge and the pantry are bursting at the seems with an abundance of food and goodies and my hosts keep saying you can have whatever you like *in T.I's voice*. They dote on me like I'm a baby long prayed for. The house is a 7 bedroom mini-mansion, it's got 3 living rooms, I've got a room, a living room and a luxurious bathroom to myself. Uncle says "public transport is rare in Houston but anywhere you want to go tell me, I'll take you and come and pick you up whenever you're done". His wife took me to the mall on Sunday when I said I needed clothes. I went armed with my wallet but she refused to let me pay for a thing. Last night after work she took me to Pizza Hut and then to have drinks afterwards. Days ago she took me to Wal-Mart and asked me to pick whatever I wanted that we didn't already have at home. She's asked me to clear my schedule on Saturday because she's taking me on girl's day out. .
These people are not my relatives. In fact i only met them for the first time when I came to Houston. Uncle came to pick me up from the airport. On the long drive home he said to me "Your father is a very good man . He was our boss back then in CBN and till date is the best boss I have ever worked for. Oh he was good. He was so good to us. I was just a clerk but he treated me with utmost kindness and respect. That is why when he called me and said his daughter is coming to the U.S. and needs a place to stay I immediately offered my home. Since the 70s I have always wondered how I can ever repay his kindness during those CBN days".
And there I was beginning to think that being good is a waste of time. Just a reminder to the good ones, when it seems like only selfish and ruthless people keep winning, just remain true to yourself. You never know what lies ahead. I can't really share all that's happening for me right now, but it's amazing the doors being open to me today, simply because of my father's good deeds 40 years ago. ❤


Heyyy... so I'm expecting my new iPad in a few days, thanks to blog reader Chioma Ukeje helping me to order one on EBay. When it arrives I'll hopefully resume normal blogging duties. How have you been?
Ps for those asking, i haven't relocated yet ๐Ÿ˜


  1. You are having a much needed and well deserved break, please enjoy it ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘. I tap into this level of chilling and favour.

    1. Tappers association

  2. Doing and being pays, Enjoy Houston Tee.

  3. Maybe I should come down to Houston and join in the largesse? I totally agree with the article title. Chrisyinks

  4. Oh My! This almost drove me to tears. Wao! God bless your Dad and God bless the man you are staying with, he is a real human being who understands that one good turn deserves another.

  5. Waoh! Him and your Dad never lost contact all these years? This is great.

  6. "Being "good" is a damn waste of time... be anything that will get you closer to your goals. Being good will not get you there... "

    that's what you shared earlier in the year, so it's a breathe of fresh air to see this other point of view. i hope good things keep coming your way!

    1. Yes I said all that and more thus the "after all" in my caption. 2017 taught me lessons that i don't even want to remember, the post probably came from a place of pain. It's all good though ☺

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 entrรฉe comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrรฉe 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…
