Precious Memories One Year On.

Posted October 30, 2020 from Cameroon
And she wore red.
And she wore red. (1/2)

People always love to say throw back so or so day.

Sometimes I wonder why. But today, I understood as I had my own #ThrowBackMoment.

I don't know if the excitement of that meet gave me the presence of mind to write about it here  last time but then,  30th Oct 2019 remains a date filled with precious memories.

It was the day I touched down in Nigeria for the first time.

It was the day I got to feel that love that has been so strong and visible online.

It was the day I got to meet the Queen of Trash and felt the Treasure of her warm, comforting embrace.

The day I got to feel the tangible proof of the online love to be just as real. 

I couldn't make it to Ibasa, so she made the time and came all the way with her husband to welcome me to Nigeria.

Today, our two countries bleed. Yet today, our memories are so precious and special that I couldn't help writing something about that moment which will always remain engraved in my heart.

And to crown it all, she brought me a special treasure gift which I am wearing today. The warmth from this coat of love in this chilly Yaounde Morning is reminding me of the warm embrace I received one year ago from the queen of hearts herself.

Thank you so much dear Sis Tosin. The love you have shown and continue to show will always remain special in my heart.

I pray my next trip to Nigeria will see me in your queendom in Ibasa where we would have a few quality days together.

Love you plenty ❤ ❤

Arrey, I was looking at that photo and thinking that you two could pass as relatives :)
How lovely that regardless, family is beyond blood, and into hearts and memories that touch our lives and fill us with warmth like the one you share here! How generous of sis Tosin and her husband to travel and welcome you to their country. You both look 'settled and satisfied', and it's lovely that that is not a throw back, but a warm companion with you when yo think on the trip/connection. Yaaay to more deepening connections and blessings on your bond!

Dear Mimi,
Thank you so much. Yes, she's my relative from the Pulse just like you ;)
Absolutely. Family is not always about blood.

Dear Sylvia,
Thank you so much. Yes, indeed, it was a very beautiful memory I hold close to my heart. One that I am hoping to return and bond again. Thank you for the kind words and wishes.
I hope you are doing well.

Hello, dear sis Arrey,

This is such a lovely throwback. I hope I can meet you and sis Olu someday. I sometimes let my thoughts wander on what an amazing moment would be. Yes, I close my eyes are just envisioned that I travel from one country to another just to visit my World Pulse sisters. It shall come to pass. One day.

Thank you for sharing this with us!
