Download (1)She was standing there, trembling. Her feet right on the edge, wondering how deep the fall might be. Her heart was racing. She was determined. She started controlling her breath, it was something they taught her. One of the few good things she got out of it.

Is there someone whom you don’t know very well in real life? someone you admired or admire from a distance — it could be a blogger whose writing you enjoy, a friend you just recently made, etc. Which of them will you be glad to have over for a long chat in which they tell you their life story.

Writing this post got me thinking. Is there anyone I would really love to have a chat with? It hit me, for the long months I offered a German Language Course, I had longed for nothing but to have a long chat with my teacher. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity. You might be surprised, why the longing.

I wore a flowing gown on the Monday I won’t forget in a hurry, standing before 33 people from different nationalities, the black, dark, white, red, orange-yellow and green skin colours were all humbly represented. ‘Where do I start from’?

It is only difficult to be separated or swept away when two people are agreed that life is only life – to me it means marriage is only marriage – when two are agreed to go through life side by side.

It is beautiful to see two birds flying side by side, and it is easier to row with two people in a boat than just one. Embrace your marriage as a beautiful thing. Embrace the truth that two people are better than going through life alone.

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken. – Ecc. 4:9-12

Are you in agreement with your spouse?

Every stationery I have ever owned

All the receipts

Love notes

Dead flowers

Memorable pictures

Dreams destroyed, dreams achieved and dreams still in progress

Scribbled manuscripts, uncompleted journals and mashed papers

Have all been at one time or the other preserved by the wooden piece of art – SHELF. It holds memories, it stores activities and makes me smile when I go through my stuff. It speaks a lot about me than I would have spoken orally.

Chioma sat in the dark. Her hair a mess. The shades drawn. The television was playing, but she wasn’t watching it. It was just sound. She hated living alone. A car outside backfired. She jumped. She jumped a lot lately. Ever since the alley. She chewed her nails and fought her tears. Continue reading THE LIES I TOLD BECAME WHO I BECAME
