Hi peeps, it has been a while… I know. I can explain and I will soonest. For now I need you guys to help this writer out. She wants to remain anonymous (which of course I always ensure, with or without asking).
Her letter goes thus,
I got married a year ago, now blessed with a beautiful baby girl (a month old). I never for once enjoyed my marriage, its been from one problem to the other. Now my husband as been diagnosed of lung cancer at the 4th stage.
My husband’s family have been behaving funny towards me, trying to put blames on me that I brought bad luck (bad luck ke?) He had nothing when we met, now he’s got a good job, car & some other tangible things.
Please Naijahousewife, I need your prayers, word of advice, ideas on what to do and even experience. I am in my very early 30’s, too young to be a widow. I believe some people have been able survive this, I believe my case won’t be difficult for God to handle.
*Anticipating your response* thanks and God bless you
I’m so sorry about all you have to endure. All I can say is that you need God’s strength now more than ever. The more you lean on Him, the lighter your cross will be. One thing is sure, God never deserts us at our most vulnerable moments, especially when we call on Him. It’s natural for humans to err, so ignore your relatives who blame you for every misfortune and include them in your prayers.
Daisy Lewellyn, of ‘Blood, Sweat and Heels’, finally left us after a 2 year long battle with a rare liver cancer. And she was only 36.
To be honest, she was the reason I looked forward to watching this awesome series. She was so intelligent, hardworking and had a way of bringing people together. When she found out she had cancer, she took it bravely. She lived her life to the fullest, making sure she had no regrets. I must confess, I cried too. Her chemotherapy sessions were just as awful but she never made a big deal of it. *braveDaisy
Just knowing that she died in peace and filled with joy makes me happy.
Continue to Rest in Peace.
These are really trying times for Celine.
While she’s trying to get over her husband’s death, who died from throat cancer, she loses her brother,59, today, 16th of January 2016 to all sorts of cancers – throat, tongue and brain! If her brother lived somewhere in Nigeria, I would naturally assume someone was “throwing an arrow”!…you know how it is na! 3 cancers at once!
My heart really goes out to her at this time. I know she’s a strong woman beneath all that softness.
Let’s add her and her kids to our prayers.
After seeing these ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos of Diezani, I shuddered.
I wouldn’t wish this for anyone, not even my enemies! My prayers are definitely with her and her loved ones as the Lord lays His healing hands on her.
But I must say, that even in sickness, the woman fine like that.
This is also a wake up call for we mortals, that no matter how rich you think you are, there are still some things money can’t buy… Health and Salvation.
We need to spend more time acquiring values that will help in enriching our spiritual lives. No point amassing unnecessary wealth, it doesn’t make your transition from this part of the world to the next easier.
On a last note… We are all going to die one day, so what are we doing now that will make a significant difference in not just your life but the lives of others? This is a question we must continually ask ourselves.
Have a blessed week.
I’m not sure if it’s me or my wild imagination… Has anyone noticed that most Nigerian politicians are always dying of one ailment or the other that doesn’t have cure?!
In recent times, Alamaieyeseigha, Dora Akinyuli, President Yaradua, Mariam Babangida, Aunty Clara Oshiomole, just to mention a few, all died of one ailment or the other especially from cancer! Now Big Aunty Diezani is claiming she has cancer…cancer of what Biko?! I just hope she’s not trying to play a fast ‘Diepreye’ on us!
Please, I’m just thinking out loud… I just want to make sure it’s not Politico – spiritually related. And why aren’t other foreign government officers dying like fowl?! #justasking *situation needs to be examined closely
