I lost most of the documented notes sadly enough, thanks to my device with a nice mind of its own (LOL) . But still, I am so thankful. Dee Ami’s House is a year old today. The focus was to make certain I open my door every day. God has truly been faithful and gracious to me. Were there days I didn’t feel like putting up anything? Yes. Oh, yes, there were days I didn’t feel like opening the doors. I can’t begin to share all I passed through, conquered, learned in this course of 12 months: mental, psychological, physical, spiritual, and financial demands this beautiful house has placed on me. But I can tell you for sure how much stronger this house has made me and how much it has affected my life and the lives of so many others, and that I am sincerely grateful for. A lot took grounds, trust me. I remember my first major heart-breaking experience.
It was Day 87. I found out the commentaries for my most viewed articles yet at that time, disappeared. And then a few days later, the sudden disappearance of 22 views. Another shocking incidence played out on the 14th of September. I couldn’t get back to my dashboard after the morning post. It reads to me “blocked”. Not sure what to make of the info so I placed a call to my CTO. His line was so switched off (Arrghhhh). Didn’t know what else to say other than, “It is well.” It only became worse, and then the shocker. My login ID was no longer accepted. Will today be the first @no post?, I asked. What do I do? So I answered, I’m still hopeful. It’s not yet midnight. Guys, It lasted three days straight. I couldn’t get through to DAH. Still can’t believe how calm I was, though too upset for words.
Come 16th September (You’d think the drama was enough) then, one hacker succeeded in hacking my website. It’s crazy, yeah, I don’t know this person and this person doesn’t know me, yet he blocked me from entering my own house. It was a painful count, those three days. So much for social media, huh.
Oh, the days of zero views (after making certain links are sent via different platforms). Even then I kept reminding myself of what the essential was and still is. Why did you open Dee Ami’s House? I opened this house, to simply share to bless, encourage, inspire and lift in love, and then joyfully breathe with a big smile. Likes or no likes, comments or no comments. This question and answer session kept me going and still does, even today.
If I choose to go forward with my various narrations of all I have received so far in this one year journey; the sleepless nights, my thoughts that won’t stop grinding and my brain that won’t have me shut down for one minute; this will get the longest article ever written award, plus this home isn’t large to contain it all. So yeah, I’ll stop here.
PS: All I can say at this point is, there is no going back. Permit me to share with you one out of my ‘to read quotes’ it literally a part of my daily consciousness. It reads, “I don’t stop when I am tired, I stop when I am done”- James Bond
I look forward to welcoming more visitors. I hope you come visit and feel Comfy enough to stick around. Smiles. Wink
Dee Ami’s House is one today. I am so gratefully happy and joyfully thankful.
