#DFH #67: I found you

Dear Future Husband… I found you.

About two years ago I started the dear future husband thread… putting out everything I had wished for in a man and everything I’d do once I found him.

Today, I wake up a married woman. Junaid and I have known each other since we were little… but only started dating in December. Him, just like I, was married prior and so we knew exactly what we wanted.

We knew that it was meant to be and planned to get married in November…. but God’s timing prevailed.

We discussed and decided we’d get nikkad before our holy month of Ramadan and literally planned a wedding in about two days.

My dad did my draping, my mum, aunties and cousin the cooking, my cuz and I the running around and setting up and boy oh boy was it so fulfilling.

I have never experienced this amount of happiness and contentment. He is everything I’ve asked for in this thread and more and sometimes I’m in awe of how God answered my prayers till the last T crossed and I dotted.

My family never fails me and this just increased my gratitude towards them for all they’ve done.

Whilst I’m sayin good bye to this thread, I look forward to the journey ahead.

May this thread be a testimony that God listens, that one should not just settle and that patience is indeed a virtue.

Dear husband… I love you and look forward to spending the rest of my days with you.

Dear future husband,

I often ponder about how we would spend New Year’s Eve.

I know prayer is important; so I’d want us to spend some part of it praying for the year behind and ahead of us.

But for the rest, would we be out with friends? Or at home, having the time of our lives with a two-man party, reflecting and having a meaningful convo, then cooking up a storm to some of our favorite jams 🎶 and then 💃🏻 🕺till we can’t anymore? Would we have our own “Idols” or “SA got talent” amongst us two 🎤 or with a couple of friends over just being cray cray.

Or would we jet set to Cape Town and parade on long street, taking in all of the people , Malay choirs and then get ready to watch the klopse over the next couple of days?

I’d imagine that anything with you by my side would be magical 🦄 ✨

Dear future husband, are you by any chance close by?

Awaiting your arrival

Your future wife 💋

I got this random message from one of my closest girlfriends the other morning and it just made me realize how important it is for one to choose the people they keep around them. This message literally brightened up my whole day.



Tonight, I got invited by another close girl friend of mine to attend a fundraiser for such an amazing organization. I’m busy working on doing some research on this phenomenal org and will definitely be sharing it with you all. The night comprised local and international acts of singing, poetry and comedy. All in the name of encouraging normal folk like you and I to get involved do our part in making our community a better place to live and grow in. But I will dedicate an entire post to giving the 411 on this amazing org.

Moving along, These two gestures from my girlfriends have inspired the quote of today:

Associate yourself with people of good quality. For it is better to be alone than in bad company

~ Booker T Washington 

I absolutely agree. 

You are, who you hang around with and that’s a fact.

We often hear the old folk say : if you lie with dogs, you bound to wake up with fleas. They knew what they were talking about. 

I’ve got a lot of wrongs to right, but one thing I’ve always been blessed with, is my support structure. My circle of real friends has grown significantly smaller over the years, but the bond between my friends and I, has grown so much stronger. 

We are each other’s strength, courage, sight, logic, comic, sister, stylist, driver, shrink, cheer leader, confidence, entertainment and even a target. The beauty lies in that even when we make each other so mad, when it comes to the wire, we don’t  have to question who will be there and who wouldn’t. 

These are the people we need in our lives, the ones who we can love when they’re down and when they’re up and the ones who can love us at our worst through to us being our best. 

Your friends should ultimately push you to be and do better. And I can confidently say that mine do all of the above, even when I’m stubborn as a Muel. 

So on that note, let’s take some time  to reflect on the people we deem close to us. Let’s look at the character of the people we call friends pay more attention to those whom we let into our circle. It may seem trivial, but it is so important.

Dear future husband,

I’ve decided to go back to #nocarbs #nosugars. 

You will know by reading through my blogs that I have an issue with my weight. 

None the less, this can make me real grumpy because you know food is life for me. 

Please don’t take anything personal, generally the grumpiness lasts for about a week, just until the cravings are gone.

Just a warning 😃 in case I fall off the bantwagon and start again

Your future wife ❤️

Dear future husband,

I’m always emotional around this time of year. Miks birthday being just 4days before mine. I hardly ever get excited for it.

13 March .

I hope you understand that this doesn’t mean I’m still stuck in my passed. But this is my son, whom I carried. My first born and so he will always have a place in my heart. 

I will appreciate your support because that very child has turned me into the women I am today. 

I don’t know if this is wishful thinking , but I’m going to put it out there anyway.I would totally love you taking me to his grave; making this a “thing” we regularly do. To clean it and pray for him. To save towards placing his tomb stone ( I can do it on my own) but having your support would be great. 

Anyways, just thought I’d let you know. If I’m not myself around this time of year when we’re together. Atleast you know why now 🙂

With love,

Your future wife

Dear future husband,

How are our mornings going to be? 

Is it going to be rushed? Are we going to be gliding passed each other rushing to the opposite ends of the room? Is it going to be so rushed that we only have time for a sip of coffee and barge out the house with a slice of toast in our hands whilst we trying to get our selves fully dressed on the way to the car?

 Are we going to be so rushed that the only words we utter is “bye or see you later”.?

Gawsh I hope not. I envision our mornings to be happy. We read our morning prayer together, you get yourself ready whilst I prepare lunches and breakfast. We sit and eat our breakfast together and talk about anything, even the day ahead. I envision that we leave the house calmly, wishing peace and blessings upon each other with a gentle kiss and ending our greeting off with an ” I love you” 

Is this wishful thinking? Oh but I hope not. 

With love, 

Your future wife
