Cheers to Being Perfectly Marinated!!!

Today is my birthday and you know how birthdays somehow seem to put one in a reflective mood, especially if you are past your partying 20's. Well, I got my share of reflective juices flowing and these were some of my thoughts on this particular birthday.





God - He has been the most dominant part of my life, I'm awed by his love which I feel around me constantly. He's held my hands and walked with me all my life and I'm eternally thankful for his love and patience with me.







Family - My family is the backbone on which I stand, without them life would be meaningless.

Marriage -  I am thankful to God for someone who truly love and cares for me and works hard to build our lives together.

Friends - I am grateful for my friends who listen and partake in whatever life throws at me.

 On Ageing -  the whole ageing process is quite fascinating, as time pass by, I get not just older but wiser with every experience whether good or bad. What I lose in youthfulness I gain in wisdom  and the ability to own my God given beauty and grace that is unique to me. its almost like when marinating, the longer you leave a piece of meat in its juices the tastier and more flavorful it gets.  






I am loving the confidence that comes with ageing,  the genuine love and acceptance for the woman I am becoming. I know I'm never going to look 21, and I have accepted that ship has sailed, but guess what, I love the fact that I am in full possession of my life, not saddled with the insecurities that crippled most of us when we were a lot younger. Nothing beats the confidence in knowing who I am, and the total acceptance without feeling the need to be apologetic about what I stand for and believe in, surely, this has to be one of the many great gifts of ageing.






What I'm wearing - Dress worn as Top  :  Alex Marie   || Skirt :  JcPenny  ||
  Shoes: Bakers  ||
  Bracelets  : Kohls 

So as I cruise comfortably and confidently into another year in my God given journey of life, I say cheers to being perfectly marinated!!!

  4. Style fash, who best to tell you about the taste of this very fine wine and the taste of being perfectly marinated :) Dear Wife, I have tried to write how I feel about you and I just keep deleting and starting all over. I really can't come up with the right words to describe how the last 15years have been since I met you. All I can say is that even if God decides to abandon me today, I'll understand cos he has given me a miracle to last a life time. Love always - A grateful husband.
