Last night I came back from the gym to have my Mum say to me, "Oh you must have known what your Dad was calling about. He said that do you realise that you have roughly two years to get married and that your time is running out and that you can't get married because you are fat."

They have started again!!! They have started!!

I have been on such a nice high since this month started and this is temptation to make me miserable again. I won't allow it! I just won't. I calmly informed my Mother that in all my years of my Law degree, I didn't read about a statute of limitations on when to get married. Then I went to my room to breathe. You know the funny thing. This is typical of my Dad, what I don't want is my Mum repeating such messages to me. They do not enrich my life in any way ! I got mad, them I listened to music and put on my Pride and Prejudice DVD (it was that or chocolate so really...)

This morning by sheer coincidence, it's quite spooky, my friend who knew nothing about this sent this to me by email. Take comfort from it(if it applies), I like it!

Just because no one has been fortunate enough to
realize what a gold mine you are,
Doesn't mean you shine any less.

Just because no one has been smart enough to figure out
that you can't be topped,
Doesn't stop you from being the best.

Just because no one has come along to share your life,
Doesn't mean that day isn't coming.

Just because no one has made this race worthwhile,
Doesn't give you permission to stop running.

Just because no one has realized how much of an
awesome woman you are,
Doesn't mean they can affect your femininity.

Just because no one has shown up who can love you on
your level, Doesn't mean you have to sink to theirs.

Just because you deserve the very best there is,
Doesn't mean that life is always fair.

Just because God is still preparing your king,
Doesn't mean that you're not already a Queen.

Just because your situation doesn't seem to be progressing
right now, doesn’t mean you need to change a thing.

Keep shining, keep running, Keep hoping, and keep praying,
Keep being exactly what you are already. COMPLETE!!
Send this on to your female friends who need
to keep on doing what they do best.

    God bless that friend who sent you the T.D. Jakes text, thats what you are girl, dont let anyone put you down. Do not be mad at your mum though, she means no harm, every human being is selfish, she just wants to see you get married soon thats all and isnt thinking that what she is saying hurts you. As far as she is concerned, its the truth but... You'll be aight you'll see!

    I don't think age or size is a limitation for getting married because a good husband is looking for far beyond the physical... I read a book "Inviting God to your wedding and keeping him in your marriage" and the lady got married at 42!!! First time. Then I wondered what she must thought all those years, and she probably would have given up on marriage. I was encouraged. Though age 42 is not ur portion, I just want you not to feel pressured by what people say so you do not make the wrong decisions.

    God surely knows how to comfort His children...the email was timely...thank God for your friend...
