MEMORIES OF A 30 YEARS OLD WOMAN

M

My name is Sandra and My memories will be told in bullet points to represent every significant point in my life in the individual years up to my 30th birthday. I may not have achieved much, but the activities, events and other things that happened in my life has made me who I am today.

  1. I was born to wonderful parents, who at the time were so much in love. My father was an Engineer and provided everything for my Nurse stay at home mother.
  2. When I was 2 years old, My father lost his job and life became unbearable. He became so angry with mum and I. Fortunately, Mum got a job in the local hospital and my family became the happy family once again. Continue reading MEMORIES OF A 30 YEARS OLD WOMAN

LAND OF MY BIRTH

In response to the A to Z Challenge

The sun was radiant, all-watching eye, its light creeping into every corner, bathing the whole world in a warm glow.

The mini van cruised down a twisting road, grassy, forest green hills looming over the mountainous drive. An endless expanse of turquoise wonder, shimmering a liquid gold, stretched towards the distant horizon. The grasses looked like yarn weaved carpets and the birds hopping from tree to tree chanting in  the distance. The countryside view of Velbert in Germany was breathtaking.

ABUSED AGAIN

A

As I woke up to April 1st, my thoughts kept racing between the type of vain joke I intended to carry out this year and the first post for the A-Z challenge. Finally settling down to give my husband a terrible scare, a loud bang was heard. I rushed, flung the quilt covers and was already sprinting before I knew it. Crying, Moaning, Sobbing were all the sounds I could hear, not even the chippings of the birds or the explosive blasts from the nearby company could stifle the sounds. Continue reading ABUSED AGAIN

JOURNEY TOGETHER

10906171_1029020960447375_2061271603530413669_nTo be a wife or husband or in a relationship and making an oath to do so, means to stay side by side while traveling through life together. 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?

Have a lovely Sunday.
