So few weeks ago, it was stressful at work, not for me, but for bobo. I’d closed by 5 pm and gone to the car park to sit in the car and wait for his Highness so we could head home together (we work in the same office…different units….) While waiting, I was watching a series on my phone and I warmed the car too.

People of God, I waited from 5 pm till 7.30 pm, and bobo kept sending messages that he’s sorry and they had an issue to resolve in his unit. All the staff buses had left by 6 pm and I was still waiting.

Men and brethren, at this point I was tired, uncomfortable, on the verge of getting angry but I just decided to chill and wait plus I was super hungry and the thought of going back into the office to collect what he bought for me was making me angrier!!

Some few minutes to 8 pm, the lights in the car park were switched on, and I noticed very few cars were left…then I saw bobo running with his briefcase towards me.

In that second, all the anger disappeared, all the vex vanished, every discomfort and disapproval I had, and frowning I was determined to unleash just melted away.

My heart was filled with understanding, excess love, and admiration!!

When I thought of all the sacrifices he has made, all the uncomfortable things he’s endured for me, my foolish anger wasn’t worth anything. He’s human…also tired and stressed out.

After one better kiss, I allowed him to tell me all about the issue and how he had to stay back to help…we had a very lovely and gist-filled ride home. It didn’t matter to me that we got home very late, but it pained me small ehhh because my waist and back were aching!
