One confession I’m willing to make
One conversation I kept private
One thought loud in my mind
One craving I’ve always had
One habit I couldn’t manage…..
“Bibi! What exactly are you driving at?, this piece looks good but I’m actually getting tired of your suspense to be sincere”.
Bubu, my bestie for life, twin sister and first-off audience who always get to hear my vibe first before I tweet them 😁
We’ve been living together since we both dropped out from Law school, that’s by the way…
Presently Bankers, at the same bank and branch. I’ve always been passionate about writing and sharing my thoughts.
Apathetic towards Law but our parents wanted us to continue in their legacy.
Mom, presently a Chief Judge and Dad Ex Chief Judge but retired as National President of the Council of Judges.
We were tied to their own destiny until our results and their money couldn’t keep us anymore in Law school. I was given to writing but Bubu loved banking.
I joined her in banking because I needed money to establish my writing prowess but I never stopped tweeting and Bubu never stopped proofreading.
When Bubu died, I almost lost my mind, I was confused and frustrated, ‘why would God take away someone like Bubu?’
Everyone loved her, she was extra in all, even with our work schedules she never missed any church service; children and teenagers coordinator, Sisters Fellowship president and ofcourse our bible study officer.
Though our parents never had time for such but she was a good definition of dedication and genuine love.
The pastor’s sermon during her burial was from Genesis, he spoke about how God created everything in Light, nothing was made in darkness, revealing to us that God has a plan for everyone and would never leave anyone in darkness as long as they’re with him.
He also shared the last verse of the first chapter with us, “And God saw goodness in all he had made”, telling us it was out of his goodness he took Bubu home having shared the goodness in her.
And since that time I drew closer to God and his word to know his mind concerning me and live out his plans for my life
And in his goodness take me home too when the time comes. So Dear Reader, are you also living out God’s plan for your life?
I miss Bubu and perhaps there’s someone you miss too and instead of living in that grief while not live out your life too with the whole goodness the Lord has deposited in us all.
Thanks for Reading.
