Have you…

Sunday 8th August, 9:30am.

Where should I start my appreciation? Really I don’t know where. But what I know is, I have been overwhelmed with love and warmth since Saturday as I marked my 40th. Family, friends, colleagues, well-wishers… you are all simply amazing.

Even though I would have loved to have a get together with friends … I must not fail to commend, celebrate and appreciate my wife for the beautiful cake and the party mood she put the whole house too. I celebrate you, love you and treasure you greatly. This journey won’t have been possible without you. And to Adeoluwa and Oluwatamilore… you made the day bam in your own unique children ways.

Faint Echoes…

The hallway echoes with footsteps…The rooms pregnant with dark silence, the chairs looking gloomy…a shadow of useful past.

A cherished history, the bonding memories are remembered in bitterness and anger…and the wind blows listlessly…willing for days gone by.

A hunger for fulfillment…a stirring for purpose  give winds to the sails…and they sail off into the sunset seeking for glory and never to look back.
