My Love Story…
Here am I thinking about how my life has evolved over the past few months. Trying to track back what has led to my present state, I can say it all started over a year when I got attracted to this lady.
Let me narrate my story…
A couple of months back, I took an unusual notice of this babe, she wore a simple dress, yet elegant. Same day I walked down the street with her, wait a minute I had known her for a while before then so don’t say it was kind of cheap getting her attention.
Subsequent times I found myself wanting to talk with her, liking her company… then I began to suspect myself. She was so receptive and her seemingly eagerness to receive me anytime I saw her was great encouragement. Well call that a green light if you want, but it wasn’t automatic.
As time went on, I made up my mind that I wanted to invest the rest of my life with this lady so I went on to declare my intentions to her. Well it took a while before she finally gave me an answer, but wow it was positive. The moment I heard her answer it dawned on me that I was now in and was no longer a man for myself alone but a man for both of us.
Now the journey began, she loved me and still does, she cherishes me and all but there were a few things she didn’t like about me, things she just couldn’t understand about me. In fact I was seen as a complex being and she saw the need for serious work to crack my code :). Many times she had to pray for me so that she could see positive changes in me, not like I was bad o, but hellooo I shouldn’t live my life with minimal consciousness of the need for intimate friendship and closeness with my partner. She complained about some things she didn’t like even though she had to mention some issues more than once and it appeared like she was nagging. But she was also careful not to pressurize me to the point that I started behaving a certain way. She wanted me to be myself but also knew that I could be better.
Many times I saw reason with her and worked on improving myself, there were times I had to pray.
Now I look at myself and can see some level of progress, I’m still myself but a better brand; sometimes I wonder why I didn’t know and do some things then.
All I can say is this; my life is different now because she said yes to me. I’m a better man, more romantic, more considerate, more caring, more sacrificial and more thoughtful because she said yes.
Her yes is priceless, I value it so dearly… many ladies today see me as a nice guy, but I wasn’t always like that, God used her to transform me into me. Yes we are not done, I’m definitely going to be better than I am now and I anticipate seeing what more I can become.
There were times it was rough, we had misunderstandings even though it never resulted in any quarrel, but in all these I was hopeful that it was just to bring out the best in me, I never saw breaking up as an option… we worked at making it work and this was with the help of God our Father.
My dear friend, your relationship is a major project that will test your ability to be a great manager, it will test your maturity, patience, convictions and what you have for each other… There are a lot of lessons and transformations in it if you stay in it (once your relationship has been endorsed by God).
Stay in it and keep building, you can do it with God’s help… I’m a proof of this.
When she said yes, my life took a new course and I am what I am today because God used her yes to mold me and prepare me.
Thanks my love and thanks my God. I love you both.
