Just started a new year of married life.
May 24th 1997, seems just like yesterday and I can remember all the preceding events.
Going to the NYSC camp but not reporting at the Umuahia Medical Center for my pry assingment because I was not redeployed back to Lagos and since I had wedding to plan ...........home I went.
I got to stay at home with my mum who just retired as a banker and we got to bond. We built a relationship not just as mother/daughter but as friends as we went around planning my wedding..........Thanks mum.
The 1st few years without the babies were the best, lots of loving and friendship and I won't trade those years for anything, as, we built a solid foundation that still binds today.
We lost a baby, Oluwanifise but God in his infinite mercies blessed us with Oluwatunmise and Oluwabamise.
Challenges have come but we've weathered them all.
I have asked myself,' why did I marry this man'? Especially when he hurts me or takes me granted.
He is lazy about housework and expects me to do everything for him, he can be unkind and uncaring, he can also be thoughtless and keeps malice like a woman.........lol (he has 3 older sisters)
When I think ,'enough is enough'
He does that nice, thoughtful thing that brings a tear to the eye.
He is supportive of me in whatever I do or want to do and he does not remind me of my failures, even when it cost us a lot of money.
He stands up for me in his family and will never pull me down.
And, 'I LOVE Yemi TO BITS', even when I don't tell him enough.
I am working on this marriage and God is working with me and he has given me
Beauty For Ashes
The Garment Of Praise For The Spirit Of Heaviness
ps; I was given 6 months extension of NYSC but did not mind.
pss: wrote this on the 24th but just posted it. And decided to change my pic and show my new look ,hope you like.
