started out early

“I got married at the young age of 25 years old. The feeling was right and I felt deeply in my heart my wife was just the one for me. My family were against my plan of getting married just as I was starting out in life, but something kept telling me if I don’t do it now, I may never do it. So I just went all in with my guts and married the love of my life. Back then, I knew little about life challenges. I didn’t have much, but we were okay. Few years down the line, I had a life threatening sickness that drained virtually everything I had. It was my wife who stood by my side through it all. She kept telling me, ‘We shall overcome.’ And we did overcome that period. Together, we have 2 amazing boys. One of my sons is already married and a father, so I am proudly a grandfather. Maybe one of the youngest grandfathers around town. I owe my life to that decision to get married at 25. Life challenges threw me around alot but you never know what the future holds. So if you feel it strongly in your heart at anytime to do something, go for it. You never know who will be there for you at your lowest point in life.”
