Day 13: The November Happiness Challenge
We had gone ring shopping earlier and he got what I wanted so I had an inkling that the proposal was coming soon. On this day, 2nd of October, we had a fight and we were not talking to each other. Lol. He had to go to work and I needed to visit a friend in town so he dropped me there first and later came to pick me. On our way home, he said he wanted to have a haircut and asked if I wanted to go with him or he should drop me at the house( knowing fully well that I follow him to the barber’s everytime, smh). I told him to do whatever pleased him and off to the babrber;s we went.
When he was done, we returned to the house and I was hungry so I stepped into the kitchen to put something together. After he prayed, he came into the kitchen and asked what I was trying to do. I gave him that look and told him I was trying to get something for us to eat. He told me to stop with the cooking, go take a shower and get dressed because we were going out. I did ágidi’small and said No. He then apologised and said he was sorry that we were fighting bla bla bla. It’s kuku not like I was not interested in the outing, I mumbled okay and went to shower. He then said I should wear a particular dress he once told me he liked , I did this. When I was all dressed, he said I looked beautiful, went on one knee and popped the question, right inside the room!
Shey I was forming ángry’ before. I just started laughing. He asked if I was not going to say yes and I said he should ask the question again, then said Yes again and again. Of course I knew I was ready to do life with him, forever.
Then, he got up and said we should go have celebratory dinner. Guys, it was what I always wanted; A proposal done when it was just my partner and I, and I got it! We went to eat and God knows I wasted his money that night because the excitement ddnt even let me eat. I was just staring at my ring and staring at him at intervals. Like fam, I am engaged! Not just engaged but to the love of my life and someone who ticks all the boxes for me. Allah’s mercy surely abounds.
Now I am getting married and I am hopeful that the future is more beautiful than the present. Please say a word of prayer for us. I also pray that Allah grants everyone’s beneficial desires and we all get continuous reasons to celebrate one another.
Today, I want us to give alms to the less privileged. It could be getting lunch for that worker at your office or giving some money to the man who you see down the street. It could be dropping some change in a beggar’s bowl or giving him a whole dash. Depending on how capable you are, give out something today in charity. Do it and watch yourself have peace for simply putting a smile on someone’s face.
I’ll be back. BOS
