Perfection! 14-07-14 E13 min read
So… in my last post about my own fairy tale, I was wondering if he was indeed the Prince. Months have proven him to be…winks! My Prince came through…I call him my amazingly awesome prince…he is also very spiritual, hmmmm.
Since this was our first birthday together, the day was tagged as very important!
Preparations began four weeks to my day; no single day went by without my prince telling me ‘Happy birthday….days to your big day’. It was also extra special because it was my last one as ‘TUA’….winks (that story would soon unfold). Every day I also got gifts from this amazing young man; in words, time and material things.
Day 27 to my birthday I received this in the mail
Days no longer come and go,
They come and stay and stay because of you.
Every memory, every moment with you is priceless,
And everything makes perfect sense now.
Happy birthday to you, 27 days to wonderful day you were born. (an extract from my prince’s poem)
My most treasured gift was the quality of time my prince gave; he took extra care to acknowledge each day that my birthday was near and pointed out more reasons why I am extra special…winks! As days got closer, my suspense level heightened. My prince was not willing to give me any hint about the day. All I was privy to was that he was going to be present on that day.
My special day fell on the calender day ‘Monday‘ and I’m sure we all have an idea what Mondays are like in the business world especially in a city like Lagos. The weekend before that was exceptionally full; Saturday was spent with my prince and my siblings. I also got the opportunity to see a friend @dpencilpusher… bf from A’level. It was a fun filled day ending with sealing a business deal; business/pleasure…nice mix when it’s a closure! Sunday was also a beautiful day; service ending way earlier than usual, chat with my godfather and my prince, visit with ff’s, dramatic entry into my uncle’s estate (should tell that story soon…lol) and the end of the world cup 2014. Eventful weekend I must say!
Minutes before midnight on the 14th of July 2014, DPs had started changing, messages were coming from FB, BBM, WhatsApp and SMS. My first call came in from my amazingly awesome prince at midnight. LOL…some of my friends said there was no point calling because they knew my line would be busy…winks! Messages started pouring from all links and even had people sending me voice notes; I felt really loved and still feel so. My parents and siblings wished me ‘Happy Birthday‘ some minutes after midnight; my mum and sister were the carriers of the cards they had for me. It’s amazing to see how much you mean to those you consider family: I had really heart warming messages waiting for me in the cards.
