My Wedding Anniversary....12 years on the 12th September

Whao!!  It is so interesting that I have been married to the same woman for 12 years. And I still love her very, very much.
When I met her, I liked her. But now I love her.  I am the kind that believes you can’t say you love someone when you really don’t know the person. You can only love someone when you have known the person for years.
I was ready for marriage from my youth. I am the kind that, at 14, used to look up in the skies to try to think of what my future wife would be doing at the same time. I wasn’t ready to date. I had discussed with God and told him that I would be pure and holy provided he would give me the girl of my dreams – a fair, tall, God fearing woman who could tell no lies. I had my ‘spiritual’ attributes and ‘physical’ attributes. Now, don’t tell me God is not into this kind of things. He made us; He knew what I would like in a woman; So I sent the list back to Him to help me find my helpmate. HE DID. I love Him for this and I thank God for my wife.
I met her when I taught a business class in my church (Covenant Christian Center). She was one of the students and she turned out to be the best in the class.  (Not too worry, She is just 2 years younger than me o!).
I am thankful to all those that made this marriage possible. First, God; Remi, my wife who said Yes;  Mr and Mrs Olanihun – My Parents-In-law; my late parents; my siblings; Remi’s siblings; Pastor Poju Oyemade of Covenant Christian Center (I had to ask him about Remi - whether she was a good person)
The last 12 years have been eventful. Fun, Joy and Laughter and 3 blessed children.
Do I have any regrets? Any regrets about marrying my one and only Remi? No. I can’t think of any. It was definitely a battle of wits in the initial days of the marriage. What more would you expect from 2 first borns? Remi, the first of five and Me, the first of five too. First born children are used to having things done their own way and tend to be ‘bosses’. But we always sorted things out. We set rules in our household such as not keeping the score of hurts; always apologising when one party has wronged the other; sleeping on the same bed, not two beds; e.t.c
So this is from me to you, Oluwaremilekun Olabisi Ebuehi. You are once, twice, three times a lady and I love you. I cherish you. I bless the day I found you and I thank God that He helped me find you in my youth. You were created especially for me and I know I will definitely grow old with you. Happy Anniversary, my love.

P.S
Every couple deserves happiness. Just let God take charge and let your marriage be like the relationship between Jesus Christ and the Church. Unconditional Love. Let your partner be your friend and your lover.
