My Prof is 2!

Standard

King-Earl calls him “My mummy’s Prof”, His birth name is Eno-Itoro (meaning Gift of Praise) and so many other names. A miracle baby born in the midst of so many unseen battles, but he pulled through and came out smiling.
He showed up on April 1st
The fool’s day they call it
But the joke is on you
Cause a wise man came through
Bringing joy and beauty to all he meets
His laugh is so contagious
You forget about being religious!
He loves water, food is not spared
When it comes to daddy and cars, he just has to be heard!
Eno-Itoro, today we celebrate another year
It feels like you are 3 my dear
As you behave like one wiser beyond his age
For me, it is befitting for unwritten pages!

May all who see you grow be amazed
May the joy that comes natural to you affect them all
May you remain a gift for which praises will ascend
Daily to God for His goodness to your family and all
Happy 2nd birthday my Prof
In you I see God’s love proven

And even when you don’t give me fist bump anymore, I yob you so!

#ThankfulThursday – Love of Family

Standard

Sometimes things happen to you and you realise that all you truly have is FAMILY. I came to know that early enough and I don’t joke with mine. Slowly but surely, my Family has grown sooooo large and our surnames are sometimes different. Well, like all families, we have our moments of fun, fights, laugh and craze – but the bond is always there.
To all my family members out there (you know yourselves), this is for you! ❤
