Your home is so blessed!!!
My Pastor, Father, Mentor, and Coach Rev Femi Oduwole’s birthday and his wife’s too.
November 23 (Rev) and Nov 20 (Rev TJ). Such a blessing this couple have been to us as a family. I totally celebrate them and love them very much.
Especially as all through the drama that ensued leading up to my wedding, they were there gidigba and even did plenty runs to ensure I had a great wedding and did us the honor of coming down to Lagos from Ibadan (right after a most busy period where the ministry has the annual camp meeting and home coming) with an entourage of his pastors sef to do the honors of
And even after the marriage and there has been some distance between us, don’t stop checking up on and praying for us. I just absolutely am so privileged to be mentored and loved by this couple. God bless them sooo much for us. Amen!!!
And today is my bestie Dr Valerie Edetanlen’s aka my very own Angel o’ love’s birthday. Mrs-to-be. The most loyal, most consistent, most loving girlfriend I have.
Ok this post will dwell more on our friendship.
Met her plenty years back… 100L. I was in B71 and she was in B73 or was it 69. Either ways, we were neighbours. We prolly hit it off right away cos Vee is a drama queen and I love me some drama hehehe. I was in pharmacy and she in medicine so our prelim year had basically same courses Chem 157 being the koko-master of them all. U flunk that, you flunk out. So we started studying together. I thought I was intelligent till I met Valerie’s brain. Choi!!! All the tough questions and topics, my girl would answer it like maimai… Lol. That she made BEST GRADUATING STUDENT in her med school set. Now thats huge. Beyond acada, she was just my go-to. We attended various stuff together and the first thing I noticed was that Vee is loyal!!! I got popular in 100level pretty fast and there came the plenty gossip/beef and Vee would fight anyone that badmouthed me. She was a voltron to a good fault. She would be very sure to yab them back hehehe. And boy!!! Vee can yab. Then if I had issues, Vee would do EVERYTHING she could to help. And my goodness, if there was any LITTLE success story about me, Vee would make a MONSTROUS deal outta it. She would celebrate me more than even me. Vee believed so much in me it was scary. Vee would blow lil good deeds out of proportion. She just is an amazing cheerleader. The BEST I ever had. She left the hostel after 100level and I stayed back in but our friendship remained.
Fast forward to when I failed outta pharmacy school and she had gone to UCH. I went incommunicado wella. I didn’t pick plenty calls, reply texts, etc. But Vee persisted. She spoke to everyone she knew who may have seen me to tell them to tell me to take her calls. She tried sooo hard to reach me. She would leave UCH and track me down severally just to see how I am doing and know what my next plans were. When she finally tracked me down and I told her, you could see empathy dripping. She didn’t stop calling, stop praying, stop encouraging. And my goodness, Vee never stopped believing in me. She would tell me how I would be a mega star cos Pharmacy is not my thing. That the world will celebrate me someday this setback would be a joke. Infact she yabbed pharmacy and medicine so much you would think she wasn’t a med student. Anything to make me happy, Vee would do.
Soon, we found ourselves attending the same church off camp and we were both in drama.
You know Vee is drama already so you can imagine all the drama she brought to Shabach theatre. Hehhehehe. Those were fun times yo!!! Despite her medical school schedule, she was committed to drama.
We got closer and closer. Through all the mistakes I made relationship wise, friend wise, etc she was there. No mistake would make her condemn you. She would keep every secret and NEVER spill or bring it up ‘conveniently’ to spite you. I would go ahead to hold several leadership positions in church/fellowship and Vee won’t ever judge or bring up the past.
Kai!!! What a friend!!!
Even when I give her counsel, she’s very accepting and always so grateful. Never a ‘who do ya think you are?’ moment with Vee.
Lemme end with something she did during my wedding. As you imagine, she was there all through.
So a day to the day or 2days sef, I needed a huge amount immediately to settle a bill. I didn’t have the money at the moment so I asked her for it to pay back in some hours or so. She gave me. Wedding preps took over and I forgot till Monday after. I asked for her account number to send the money. Daz where the drama began ooo. Babe was like ‘which money? I didn’t gi you any money ooo. Go and look for who gave you money. Etc.’ Babe just no gree. And it wasn’t all those 10k 20k money ooo. Kai!!! What a friend!!!
Darling, I am so thankful for your years of and hand in friendship.
Thank you for being my biggest cheerleader. Loyalty is rare. But babe, you typify it in this relationship even when I have slacked.
My God bless you.
Oh one last thing about Vee. So she recently lost literally the BEST person in her life, and days later, babe is talking about planning a surprise bridal shower for our friend Titi.
Ah!!! I was shocked ooo. But vee understood that Titi’s wedding was a once in a lifetime thing and she had to be there for her. The same girl was also asking,me about some of the faith projects I had shared with her. That’s Vee. She is too selfless to her friends. God bless you babe, soooo much. All day!!! Every day!!!
I pray our friendship lasts forever. Plenty memories to make darling.
I totally absolutely love you babe. Truly and deeply.
Happy birthday Sugar.
