Guess whose Birthday it is (3)

My 7 star general!!!

Today I celebrate YOU, your birth, your life, your journey. 

Ever since we said “I DO” we have never really been into real public displays of affection. We would hold hands in public but not so much as many would do. Even when it comes to gushing about each other online in this social media era, neither of us tends to do so like so many of our friends do.

But today, since it's your day, I thought I would take the opportunity to spill openly so get over the weirdness of this already and “sit back, relax and enjoy the ride” (right back at you).

You said not to get you anything today so I might as well hijack my blog and tell the world about you. 

I would start by saying you are simply an amazing creature.

I love you deeply and consider it an honour to be your wife. I bless the day I met you and you bet I would choose you again and again.

You are the best project manager I know and indeed you manage your projects (Stacey & I) very well.

You think things through before doing them like your existence depends on getting them right. I found you somewhat difficult initially but I know better now. I would whine about your hair and you would act like nothing could make you cut the hair, next thing you come back home with your hair trimmed and am like… dude where are you from?!  

Yikes! I haven’t updated my 2016 plan…I would be done before the end of next week. I initially thought making those presentations were out of this world but they have helped us a great deal and I am glad we have been doing them diligently, all thanks to you.

You are a comedian and always have people laughing, especially me. Those weird dance moves make Stacey and I laugh uncontrollably. You’re a kid at heart and that makes you so lovable. 

You don’t take yourself or anything else too seriously, yet you also have great focus.
You are a remarkable facilitator and people are awed at how well you impact knowledge. 

You have a very large heart and would sacrifice anything for us, “darling don’t worry about me just get stuffs for you and Stacey”, this is like your default response whenever I ask if you want anything.

I remember that you were worried what kind of father you would be when we were expecting Stacey but the moment she arrived I saw so much love in your eyes (Thank you for not passing out in the delivery room). 

Right now even an insect bite on Stacey's leg makes you raise your brows. Last night when she called you “Daddy Daddy”, you beamed with so much pride and love. You are a natural in the new daddy role and you do it with great pleasure. 

The way you are able to manage your time efficiently and make time for your family despite your very busy schedule is something that I treasure. I’ve heard many women complain about their husbands not being around enough, I always feel a sense of pride and relief, knowing that you are around. 

Our life has had some highs and lows, but this journey with you is a huge blessing indeed, and there’s no one else I would want by my side. I am happy to share the adventure of this family with you and proud to bear the title Bola’s wife.

Today, as we celebrate you, I want you to know that I love you more each passing day!

Happy Birthday Dearest One!!!

To end this, I thought I would leave you with the lyrics from our song “At Last” by Etta James

At last
My love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song

Oh yeah yeah
At last

The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you

I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

Oh yeah yeah
You smiled, you smiled
Oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
for you are mine...

At Last

I would love for you all to join me in wishing Bola a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
