Through his eyes...

Hey peeps, it’s been a while huh? Ive been a busy bee! This past 2 weeks I’ve battled a cough plus an ear infection but I am more than a conqueror! Thank you God!

Want to hear a story? Great! Pull up a chair.

So I had this childhood friend that I’ve been in Love with for sooo long.  His mom and my mom were best friends so we were practically raised together. When I say we were together… I mean school, vacation, weekends etc. We literally walked around saying we were cousins. Well, in the midst of this, I developed a crush on him. I remember being 6 yrs old and singing love songs to his pictures, just professing my love to him. Well, the fact that our siblings always made fun of us and called me his wife didn’t help the situation; I believed I was going to mary him when I grew up. Fast forward 16yrs; I sat him down and told him I was in love with him and had been for the last 16 yrs…. If he wanted me, I would be the best thing that ever happened to him.

*Crickets Chirping*

He looked at me and told me I was basically his sister and It wouldn’t be right. I told him to cut that out and tell me the truth…Yes were were basically raised as siblings but we did not have one drop of blood in common.


He then told me the truth…. I was pretty and cool and all but…I was also ummh…too…. FAT!

108/365 tuesdays secret

Hmmm, Yeah, that hurt… for 16 yrs I had been dealing with this crush only to have it smashed to dust. I couldn’t understand why the only thing that mattered was my weight, what about how i cracked him up, or made him feel like the sun rotated around him, what about the years we had spent together? I just couldn't . So I picked up my shattered feelings and kept it moving.


Fast forward 3 yrs…. My mom called me to tell me that his mom had called with something important. Her son, my crush, wanted to formally ask for my hand in marriage

…To be continued
