It would be an understatement if I say, “I’m excited”.
Didn’t I tell you all last time that the title, “Beautiful Cinderella” of my book didn’t pass the scrutiny of the editors? Well, here comes the new title they came up with, the one I literally, instantly fall in love with, the one I gave two thumbs up to:

Marriage is very different from dating. Dating has some sort of excitement to it almost every day. It is sweet and makes life bearable. Especially for a girl who stole a man’s heart, it is a blast. She may sometimes feel that she is flying on the air. She easily embraces herself as the most beautiful and attractive person ever created on this planet earth.

Thank You, LORD, for giving me another day to come to You in prayer. May Your Name be blessed forever!
I have received many good and perfect gifts from You, LORD.

Early on in our marriage, I used to pack my stuff to go back to Ethiopia for every little conflict I had with Berhan.
You see, we were the first ones to talk about getting married among our friends. We got married and we were all alone. No married people were around to guide or mentor us. Not only from our friends but we were the first ones to get married from our siblings, from his side and my side. Yeah, can you just imagine! Continue reading Having People Over Us
