Thank.Full.E’… Part 1

This is how I would sign out of 2013. In as many series as I can, I would be saying my THANK YOUs.
I may not mention everyone but I will try. Yes including my FAB community right here. Especially the ones whose comments, mails and stuff get me grinning silly. I want y’all to know that beyond the counting comments, you too count!!!
If your name doesn’t make this cut, be patient… And forgiving too. Lol. There will be more parts!!!
This is my heart… From me to you… For all your love for E’. You guys make me feel so special and I feel super honored and humbled at the amazing testimonies y’all share with me about OUR blog.
Keeps me on my toes here. That I am a mentor to a lot of you, I don’t take for granted. That some of you call me ‘friend’ or even ‘sister’ I appreciate. Infact… No words. Just plain humbled. That this blog blesses you blesses me… Thank you!!!
In well, no particular order… Till the last name at least… (No it isn’t Aku m) Thank.Full.E’ Part 1!!!

Thank you to my baby girl Genevieve… Viive. I absolutely love you. You are so me at your age and your mails just tickle me pink. Too much energy. Too much drama. Love love love darling.

(Top Viive, BL-Frances, BR-Teniola)
Ah the very amazing blogger who I hope to meet before her Law school year is up… Frances Okoro. You are a real virtuous woman (don’t pay any mind to the lying bastard devil). You are atgtrll that and more. Not in yourself but cos you have ur Sugar daddy behind you and I see you rep Him on your blog. Thanks for being a consisten FAB’er since you discovered my blog. Thanks for your love and very kind words. Bless up!!! Squeezy hug darling.

Bestie in my head… How Aku m and I laughed the day that mail dropped. Jenny darling. We really should meet (I don’t recall but were you the one I couldn’t meet that day…? So sorry boo. Don’t worry, I have plans 😉 for the FAB community ) I’m happy to inspire you. Let’s keep living the God kinda life jare. Love you sweerie.

Ah Lizzy!!! Elizabeth of life!!! Only God can reward you for me cos nothing I ever say or do will do!!! I am amazed as to how bankable and reliable you have been as a friend. And how selfless you are as a person. And I’m also amazed as to how you are respledently becoming a female Hon Patrick to us all. :p (couldn’t resist darling) Just know that as much as it depends on me, if there is anything I can do to make your life easier or better, I will do for you. One doesn’t make such sacrifices in your life and go like that. Thanks for all your input. Thanks especially for that ‘standing in the gap’ song you sent me one time. Thanks for sharing in my victories and my pains. You rock!!! Your husband and inlaws are so blessed to have you ( Calling the things that be not…). God bless you for me darling… Love. Love. Love much!!!

(Lizzie left and Priceless Right)
Priceless. Kathryn. Ah!!! Tz not just you but u and ur hubby I wanna celebrate. I recall one day Nnanna called me when I was just about to be over whelmed to tears with some wedding plans (the white this time). I know it was God that led him to call me cos I didn’t even tell him anything. He just said after asking me how the plans were going ‘my dear, the one you can do, please do. The one you can’t do, leave. It won’t stop you from being married…’And he prayed a prayer that God answered (You gotta call me for that in camera lol). Then kathryn…aside from being a healthy christian friend whose company is always uplifting and enriching, u know how to give me good counsel… Recall the dreads advice. I was going to take off my dreads before the wedding cos… Well long story. We met in church as I left the ladies and when I told her, she COMMANDED me not to try it and gave me great counsel. Then she made me get a ‘sexier’ lingerie than I had and went ahead to also gift me one incase I didn’t buy what she said and gave me some ‘rated 18+ counsel’. Let’s just say you have a special place in Aku m’s heart looooool. Thanks for all the company too darling. You have become a sister. Meeting you this year coloured my world beautiful. You know you gotta work that your blog more in 2014 yeah… Love you girl…

Ify Chime. The one and only Peace +++ Ify. How I await your comments. You have some of the best points and prayers. And to think you are one of those super women… Three kids, and in the bag, fantastic career, lovely home and pretty face with an even prettier heart… Nne if we weren’t good I woulda been beefing you ooo. Thanks for all your true love for all things FAB and E’. Ify who I have never met sent me a wedding present too. Hian!!! Nne, you are just a ROCKstar. Love you too much.

Giantsparkle… I loved your perseverance in stealing into a special place in my heart. Much as we are half namesakes, you still did some work to enter my life. Tz a good thing you did… Good for me. Good for you. I don’t even know the words to say!!! What will I say to your love abeg?!?! Good thing you are here for the long run!!! You are an absolute TEN. Hopefully we will attend a wedding under two years (if you are ready) and I will be very there dancing you into this wonderful world. Love you girl. And thanks for being this sweet lovely sister to me.

(Giant sparkle in orange. Berny with me)
Berny baby!!! Pharm berny. You got me tearing up in church on Sunday as we chatted. You have the sweetest way of reminding me of why I should blog. You remain one of my biggest cheerleaders. I recall the day you walked up to me in the library in Imoran to say how my blog had been a blessing. You still haven’t stopped. God bless you for me berny. And rest assured you and yours are in my prayers. We just can’t stop testifying now can we? Hope your dance is ready ooo… You must beat Oga ooo!!! Love you girl and from the depth of my heart, thank you!!!

One plus!!! Actually make that THE 1plus. Nne eh, both you and your blog need to be kidnapped and put in my house. Lol. Discovering your blog from Inthe’s was like gold. Then that lovely post you did for me. May men always celebrate you in embarassing but very welcome ways. Love you girl and thanks for the amazing gift of 1!!! We will be there when another 1 joins to make 1 too looooool.

Ah and I have to lump this four mamas together!!! Drum roll for @Naijawife @Inthemidstofher @marriagebydbook @anafricandiva. I had to use their twitter handles cos I want you to follow them. Amazing married women who write and tweet biblical truths esp on relationship. I have learnt a lot from you ladies. Even when you are being naughty. Just African diva is not anon. The rest are. They are gold on twitter. Our convos are super hot!!! We should totally package them and sell looool. Thank you Inthe for an amazing LIVING blog. For all those DMs and emails. Loooool. Thank you NW for having this dramatic life that teaches us life lessons. Exciting Christian, that’s who you are. Here’s to more random ‘hey’ or ‘yo’ DMs. Mbdb, you know where we meet now. Your blog is another gold. Here’s to more wisdom for the new year. And the diva herself, those articles on Vine. I still need an address ooo. Need to deliver this hug in person. May the wisdom God has given you all esp in the aspect of relationships last forever. Amen. Group hug ladies. With extra smooches. And NH, you know you are boss right? Twale Sir!!!

Ur analysis were real. Eloxie!!! Lemme not lie darl, if we weren’t cool, I for dey beef you ooo. You seem like one of those girls that any prospective inlaw would love… Prim and Proper, british, reserved, deep, and a beautiful Christian sister.

Diche, Eky, Charming Onyinye, Adaora and Blessing.

If anybody told me that a whole month would go by and I won’t receive a hug from either of you, I won’t have believed.
They generously donated hugs to me. Infact, we would chat and prepare for the hug the next service day loool.
Diche, Diche… Thank you. I miss you sha… Chai!!! Love you big *wailing*
Ada… Who will squeeze me like you please? Who? *sniff* Ada Ada!!! Blessed woman. Obviously!!! Love you too much
Eky… I am seriously looking for your wings. Angel you are!!! Confirmed!!! How someone will always be looking for a way to bless you as if we are dating beats me. Eky, God bless you for me.
Blessing!!! How I miss seeing you sing heavens down. Or just shamelessly coming over for a hug everytime.
Onyi the super charming lady. Mommy to be. Can’t wait for the charming princess to be born. Onyi would read my blog then ping me privately for gist lol.
I miss y’all mega. But I’m thankful for the love you guys show me and especially the hugs!!!
This is too emotional to write. And I’m sure it is really long as I am just typing away on my bb without checking.
My last (for this part one) person was supposed to be the one man I am proud to call DADDY who has been such a HUGE blessing to me that I can never get tired of mentioning and loving up on him. If you are a regular FAB’er, you should know him. I am too drained emotionally to do a befitting thank you so I’ll roll it over to the next. I have to be alert to write about him…
Ok three announcements before I run along…

Birthday gratitude; to the Ones who have colored my life BEAUTIFUL…pt 1

So it’s my birthday week…


You have no idea how grateful I am to God… How proud I am at how far God has brought me… Gosh!!! I wanna talk about myself, how beautiful I am within and without, how intelligent I am (first class B.Sc is no joke), how I stop traffic every time I walk on the roads, how many Toasters I have, the amazing relationship with God I have… Tongue talking demon chasing… Super dresser… I’ll look good in horse cloths walahi… About how God has blessed me with the gift of garb; I can talk, I’m very outspoken, I can face any crowd, talk to anyone, I’m an Orator, a debater, Extroverted, etc… Ladies and Gentlemen, like my dearest friend Cheech once said to me, ‘your life is nothing less than a fairytale’ I live in my dreams… I am blessed!!! If I knew anyone like Eziaha Ajaero, I would wanna be friends with her. If I were a guy, I would marry her. Yes I’m that kinda woman… And I’m so thankful to GOD cos I never would have become all THESE without Him. Did I mention NEVER!!! Yes NEVER… But this birthday, its not all about me. As much as I’m tempted to write out a birthday wish list, I would rather dedicate this week to all those who have colored my life beautiful. I have been blessed with Angels as friends. I wanna write all a series of blogposts to appreciate y’all. Life is short… And beautiful. So I will take out time to say THANK YOU… In no particular order, I would be saying THANK YOU… With ur pictures and m̶a̶n̶y̶ a few words. Of course it can’t be everyone but I’ll try. This is the ist in a series of say 5… Err, if I miss out your name, remember to forgive is still divine 🙂 So let’s roll, shall we? In no particular order but lemme start with my FATHER…
Rev Albert Femi Oduwole…

My Father in the faith, Words don’t suffice. They can’t suffice!!! How grateful I am for the gift of access. How I can come to you sir at anytime and you make me feel like THE ONLY PERSON on your mind. How you lovingly insert my name into your sermons as you preach. You listen, you bless, you love. You are the BEST i could ever ask for. Rev, you have left and are still living a HUGE impact in my life and whatever i am in the future i owe FIRST to God and then to YOU… Rev, I love you absolutely i love you beyond what i can say. and i respect the Grace on your life. You have nurtured me as a garden and this GARDEN has no choice but to bloom and blossom. May God bless you ALL ROUND for me… Amen. Thank you REV…


Onyinye ‘Pearl’ Oparah (nee Ugorji)

It started as ‘Pal’ being pronounced the oral english way we learnt in high school ‘pel’ then it became PEARL… And indeed Sugar, you are my PEARL!!! The ONLY Pearl I have… The girl that gives me the most trouble on bb but the day she stops, I’ll beg her to continue. You once said to me, ‘the road is never long between friends’ indeed it isn’t with u… Thanks for being there. I love U plentiful darl…

Ozien Pogoson

The lion cannot give birth to a goat… The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. The day I told ur mom, the very delectable and gracious Dr Pogoson, that she had an amazing daughter, I meant it. That you really didn’t know me yet you took time out to teach me the tricks and tips of makeup at no cost. I see such a heart in ur mom too. Selfless. After God, I owe my makeup business success to you. I’ll NEVER forget that Ozien. Oh did I mention she is a God-lover… Oh yes she is… That’s my kinda girl…

Stephanie Obi

CEO, ST Colors… You inspired me at one of the lowest times in my life. Gosh, God bless you for that. All the phonecalls, the advice, words of encouragement… I’m eternally grateful. Today when I share my academic testimony, I mention U…

Jibola Suara

My troublesome president. You know like I always tell u, I love how mature you are. How you handle most issues and how you relate with your friends. You have made my few years in Soc GREAT… I have learnt some from U, and I’m grateful darling…

Pastor Taiwo Odukoya

My very first Spiritual Father. You spoke living words into my life. You always made me realise that I would FINISH well… Now I can’t comprehend anything less than finishing well… Every phone call was AMAZINGLY inspiring sir. Wherever I go in this life sir, I CAN’T FORGET U

Cynthia Neriah Obioha

My Valiana… My darling. In the very simple things you do, Love, you inspire me. I love that I can still count on u after all these years. God bless U darling, amen

Oluwalonii Oke

From momsie to classmate to friend to oh wells…. You brought out a lot that I didn’t know was in me. You have no idea how God used you to make me an amazing woman and a VERY AWARE one at that. I’m grateful that I met you in this journey called LIFE…

Dumebi Ezar Ononye

With a smile that literarily lights up THE WORLD… A charming personality that one can’t help but fall in love with. Almost Always on a high. You redefine ‘extrovertedness’ making it even sweeter. Darling. Whatever you do, don’t lose that smile… God has need of it… Love you over and over again babes…

Elisabeth Ezekiel

One of the most selfless women I know… I’m grateful to have met you. I have learnt to make it ‘less about me’ from you. You have a good heart I’m soooo jealous… May all your good seeds come back to you in good measure, amen. I love and appreciate u, lizzy lizzy.

Rev Victor and Jumoke Adeyemi

This combination is made in heaven!!! Thank God for the gifts of U… Chai… God has blessed both of you ooo. I almost think its unfair… Such grace. Such grace!!! I’m blessed to have you sir, as my ‘Father’s Father’. I wish I could clone Rev Victor oooo. I wish I had a friend like pst Jumoke ooo. God bless U both, amen.

For some reason, i can’t find a picture with Rev Victor and myself. will check later and update when i find it

By the way, did i mention that Rev Victor Adeyemi is the spiritual Father of Rev Albert and that makes him my GRAND FATHER… I am soooo blessed… walahi


And did i also mention that you can catch my Pastor on DSTV Channel 345 Kingdom Africa, GET INSPIRED is the name of the program. In fact, for the month of July, both of them will be on… You really dont wanna miss this, do you?

That’s it for now… To be continued… i am sure by now that a lot of you would be praying that your name makes the list… it probably will. Four more to go so relax baby…


Your Fab Black sister
