7 REASONS MARRIAGE IS IMPORTANT

reasons to marry


My friend and I were visiting a church sister who had lost a family member when we heard some of the most discouraging things about marriage. I was 19, fresh out of the university and looking forward to who will marry me. Is that not what we were taught to look forward to when we finish school? Besides, I could cook and clean. How could a girl be more ready?

My bubbles got burst with the conversation that ensued during our visit. As we sat in our little ladies' corner in that house of mourning, we listened to two married ladies from our church lecture us passively on why marriage is not important. With pale faces and melancholic voices, they lamented on how this thing they had gotten into called marriage wasn't worth anything.

Then they spoke about that thing. The thing marrried people are supposed to enjoy.

CAMEROONIAN MASHED POTATOES AND BEANS

I never used to like this meal. It didn't just make sense to me. Why would you boil potatoes, and beans separately then pound and give adults to eat? Didn't they have teeth to chew? I often looked at my Banso neighbours with "side eyes" when they made the dish. Why don't you just make some nice bean stew to go with the potatoes, I would think.

YAM PORRIDGE

The other day, I had what I would term the most boring day of my life. I was feeling so unmotivated. I didn't want to do anything. Nada! I didn't want to cook. I even considered getting fastfood for the girls. Then I remembered that I had one lovely white yam in my kitchen.

four seasons of marriage


Mr N and I had a wonderfully short courtship filled with love and romance. He was always holding my hands, looking into my eyes and saying all sorts of sweet somethings to me. Ah! I just couldn't wait to spend the rest of life with this man, who adored me. In fact, I wanted to spend my eternity with him (and I still do).  But here is the thing: the hand-holding. sweet talking, sizzling romance  that had enveloped me was but a season.

Enjoying goodies from the farmer's market. I love how shopping there makes me feel close to nature.

8 REAL THINGS THAT ARE DIFFERENT BETWEEN AFRICAN AND WHITE CHURCHES

difference between black and white church


When we first came to the United States, I was in a complete state of cultural shock. Right from the airport, things were so different. I was shocked to see people queuing up to purchase coffee. Why would anyone scramble to buy some black bitter drink? I was shocked at the amount of sugar in muffins we bought to temporally quench hunger. Did they add the dough to the sugar or they added the sugar to the dough? I was equally shocked at how polite the people in uniform where. Instead of giving clear-cut instructions, they said things like, "you may want to..".
