I have always had a special place for Adisa in my heart for as long as I can remember. She was always my beautiful ‘cousin’ that I had a crush on, that I couldn’t bring myself to say no to. Even if it meant walking blindfolded on a tight rope across the Grand Canyon (does not mean am going to do the Grand Canyon sky walk though babe: p). Over the past twenty years, we have basically moved in and out of each other’s lives, quite oblivious of the obvious that was yet to come. It all came to a climax three years ago, first as dependable friends then as two people madly in love with one another, mostly inseparable and now on the path to matrimonial bliss. This has been a childhood dream; I had dared not believe could ever come true. Yet it has, and I am so grateful to God for gracing my life with the blessing of such a beautiful, loving, understanding, hardworking person.
I always cherish the memories and experiences, some pleasant, others crazy, and of course the downtimes, without which we would not have fully realized how much we mean to each other. Everyday around Adisa is a dream come true, and I can’t wait to live out the rest of that dream with this gorgeous lady. She is a dependable friend and soul mate that has been my pillar in hard times with words of encouragement and constant prayers. Adisa is the person I can rely on to always give objective and sound advice and is always willing to provide assistance in any situation. Together we have surpassed many hurdles and together with God’s grace we know the sky is the limit.
I am grateful to our families, our friends and loved ones for all the support, guidance and prayers, since we began our relationship. We hope this union brings as much joy to you as it has to us. Looking forward so eagerly to our day, the clock started ticking on the 25th of December, 2011 and I am eagerly waiting in anticipation for the opportunity to be able to look upon her and say my wife, the future mother of my children.
Adisa, I love you, this is just the beginning of our journey, with God’s guidance, and together we will be the authors and readers of our life’s story. A story that we will keep experiencing for many decades to come and that we may look back at our lives one day and be content and complete in one another, together as one.
I have literally known Hisham forever. My earliest memories are of him playing Ninja turtles with my brother Fareed back when our families lived in Tamale. My family moved to Accra and his to Rome and we drifted apart. As fate would have it, his sisters came to live with us so we could all go to Akosombo International School together. That’s how the families became close again. In the summer of 1998, we went to visit them in Rome and that was the first time I’d seen Hisham in ages. They moved back to Ghana shortly before I went off to college in Pennsylvania so we didn’t quite get the chance to develop the same close relationship I had with his sisters. Once again we drifted apart.
When I moved back to Ghana in 2009, I somehow ended up living about 5 minutes away from the Seidus (God works in mysterious ways). Hisham and I started spending time together in a “brother-sister” capacity. We would talk about life, love, work, family… pretty much everything. He knew that I was going through a pretty rough period and he went out of his way to be there for me (even when all I wanted to do was wallow alone in my misery). As our friendship blossomed, trust came naturally. I started relying on him more and more and before I knew it he had become my “person”.
We enjoyed each other’s company so much that we started spending time together every single day. Dinner together became our thing and many times we would cook together. I would find myself listening out for his car every evening and missing him whenever he wasn’t around. The next stage of our relationship sort of fell in place naturally…
On Christmas day 2011, we headed off to Stone Lodge to set up a romantic wedding night for my newlywed friend / client who wanted to surprise his wife. Little did I know that the surprise was on me. In the middle of making sure that every last detail was perfect and stressing over the fact that I hadn’t heard from my friend, Hisham asks “what if they don’t show up?”. I didn’t find that prospect amusing at all. I was like “what do you mean what if they don’t show? They can’t not show up”. I was so focused in my work mode that I didn’t comprehend what was happening until he actually pulled out the ring and went down on one knee. I always thought I was the master of surprises but I was totally completely not expecting him to propose right then and there. My heart was pounding while comprehension started setting in. I think I said “of course I will marry you”. It was a beautiful night and I still get a little tingly when I remember it. Thanks again babe, and a special thank you to my best friend Afriyie and fake client Kermah who helped him pull it off.
Hisham loves me, supports me, comforts me, balances me, and completes me. I feel totally secure in his love. I know without a doubt in my heart that he is the man God made for me and I’m looking forward to an amazing future as his wife and mother of his children.
