Good morning MaryVal
Happy anniversary, wow, so soon it’s been a year.
A year of God’s love, favour, mercy and abundance of Grace.
Exactly a year today you formally agreed to be my wife and me your husband. I’m grateful I chose you and you chose me; you know why; because in the last one year I’ve had no reason to ask why I married and to you. As far as I’m concerned I made the right decision.
In the last one year God has also blessed this family with the miracle baby Nana Yaa. What eels can we ask for in marriage.
So as we mark this milestone, I want to say thank you for choosing me. But it hasn’t all been a smooth sailing experience. We’ve had our own peculiar challenges and even through it all you stood by me. … sicknesses, financial, my family, my mum and most of all me.
I know you sometimes complain I don’t listen to you or that when you speak I don’t let you finish and I cut in, I know sometimes it’s bothersome to you. I promise to make amends. Forgive me if I hurt you in anyway.
In the years ahead, I can only promise with God’s help to be a better husband and a father in all spheres.
There is only one thing which lacks in our journey, getting closer to Christ. We must take steps to formalize our relationship with him again soon as we leave this place God willing to our house. There’s only one thing I ask of you; don’t give up on me
Don’t give up on us
Never stop praying for us -Myself and, Yourself and Nana Yaa
When I go wrong correct me
Have never stopped loving you
Ours was not a mistake it’s the envy of all
Let’s guard it jealousy
If I were to be asked again the same question
KABA do you take Valentina Ofori- Afriyie as your wedded wife?
I’ll answer that a thousand times, Yes!!!
Happy anniversary MaryVal
