Some dark moments indeed.
But there were bright moments. From attending the ADVAN marketing awards for excellence and winning two awards, to participating in the highly esteemed Genevieve Pink Ball,, to visiting a dear friend and his twin girls, of which Adrian lay claim to Taiwo, to celebrating with Mrs 'Fineboy' on an awesome miracle God wrought in her family; and to hanging out with friends, reminiscing about the good old days when we were young, single and carefree.
As the French say- c'est la vie. Such is life. The good. The bad. The pain. The joy. Happiness and health. Sadness and grief.
This week I attended what was arguably the most emotional service of songs for a friend's sister. And as her life was celebrated and the terms flowed freely. .. it was clear that despite the short time on earth, she has touched so many lives. She was like the Biblical Dorcas, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the sick, and taking care of children and family.
It was a moment of reflection for everyone in the room... and I am sure we all left thinking: "What would people say about me when I am gone? What would I be remembered for?'
The good news is that we all have a lot more years (hopefully) to right wrongs, do good and bring smiles to faces around us. So lets start doing that. Because time waits for no one.
For those grieving, we take solace in the fact that we have hope. Hope within our hearts. That soon, a day will come where there will be no more death, sorrow, crying or pain. And we will be reunited with the ones who have gone before us.
I can hardly wait. I can hardly wait.
Great week/end folks.
