Since I started with me testifying, I figured I would end this with my twin…
Love her like I would have loved a twin sister if I had one, and considering my love for twins, that is a whole LOT…
We are so alike in many ways that if no be God ehn, I for believe say one parent played away… Lol
Recently I actually discovered that she is Mrs. E. O. and so am I…
So I will get out of your faces and let Mrs. O do her thing…I will be back to draw the final curtain on this…
“Thank you Mrs O, camp was absolutely fabulous this year. Can’t wait to return Next year”.
“You are welcome my darling (gives the skinny 14 year old girl a hug), I can’t wait to see you next year too. And remember, we are born to shine”.
“I promise not to Mrs O, byyyeee”.
Oh, how I love my teenage camp students, they are soo impressionable, curious and of course sometimes stubborn. But nothing outshines the joy of being able to steer them in the right direction according to the word of God.
Are u lost? Don’t be, that is me giving you a VIP preview into how fantastic my 2014 will be and it has begun already.
My name is Eniola Ogunmekan, and I am an absolute dreamer and doer (through Christ that strengthens me).
So mummy E'(lol) has been hounding me (not dat I’m complaining cos’ my twinnie knows I will be testifying mega this year) for this post, so here it goes.
Growing up, I used to take care of about 8 kids (no joke and just one was my sibling), they were all within the same age group 3-4yrs and I must confess, I didn’t like it all. Those children could crrry and don’t even get me started on when they choose to pooh all about the same time. I wasn’t crazy about kids, but they loved me.
Fast- forward over 10 years later, now teenagers and they are still in love with me, but this time it is absolutely mutual, esp since they can wipe themselves.
Teenagers are my absolute love; they are like clay in a potter’s hands and if molded right can become Masterpieces. I get super excited when I meet teenagers, including the ones that think they know it all and can handle anything.
In 2011, I conceived a vision to start a godly teenage camp. I remember bubbling with excitement as I drew a sketch of what I would like the camp to look like, equipped with a music room, cafeteria, Art room, hostels, basketball court, Tv room e.t.c. and then I allowed the thoughts of capital and the likes drown my dreams but not my love for teenagers.
My 19yrold cousin called me towards the end of 2013 and whilst gisting about life in the university and boys, she said “I remember what you told me sis Eniola”. I’m like huh, what did I say? And she replied “You said tomi, you are a jewel of inestimable value, don’t ever forget that” I felt so proud of her for not forgetting.
I was once again reminded of my vision so i went in search of the book which I found, thankfully.
So, this year my teenage camp is becoming a reality by God’s grace.
****Yaaaaaa. I know you will invite me to camp but do that at your own risk cos Mrs. E’ will be snatching all your teenage girls away from you oooo… :p I totally LOVE this. Start small grow bigger stay focused. We gotta catch em young. And please hope you know teenagers drain energy. Be sure to be eating fufu whenever you have hangouts oooo :p ****
Also this year, I will be doing a lot of traveling and growing, growth spiritually( relationship with my father is the reason for my being), growth to becoming a better wife to my absolutely amazing and all-things-good-deserving husband, growth career wise(so watch out advertising world, my father jokes not), and growth in the “patience department”.
I will like to travel esp to 3 countries this year, Italy, France and The Bahamas(Hubby can’t wait for this particular one, lol).
***I love LOVE her hubby… My brother Afolabi. The couple are just amazing. They accommodate/host me every time I am in lagos and tz such a joy to see him actually doing kitchen tinz… Seeing as my darling hubby is NOT a kitchen person, I am so enthralled by Afolabi . Plus he is so stressless and drama free. Unlike my twinee. Can’t have two drama people in the house tho neither should the house be totally drama-free so s’all good***
I would also like to own a brand new car this year( no more parents to hide the keys to theirs) and finally learn to speak french better( this will come handy when i get to france).
i will like to pick up a sport and in my head, swimming has always been the winner.
I will like to spend my time better this year, not to live by anybody’s life clock, invest in the right things and at the end of this year, i will like to have lived life to the fullest, become the copy writer rated ‘awesomest’ , gotten enough teenagers to believe that life as a christian is the coolest and gotten hubby to live healthiest (he must love fruits by force), all according to the will of God.
*** Baby you know we got this fruits thing sorted already yeah? Smoothies!!! And don’t forget the coconut . (Shut up, your opinion ain’t needed :p ) ***
Thanks darling. My Sapphire of life…
Teenagers camp loading… That’s the one I will harangue you for…
