Sometimes, I like to shut my mind to certain realities.
People die. The ones we love. The ones we forget to tell that we love them. They just die.
How come it’s usually only at memorial services or it’s like that we get to hear all the good things to be said about someone? This someone who has already passed away, who can’t hear these nice things we now say?
Why is it that, it’s when the ones we love die that we remember to tell them how much they
mean meant to us?
Funny how most of us never really show gratitude to people who in one way or the other have touched our lives till they kick the bucket.
At burials, we then go with long notes and speeches filled with platitudes. I mean, what is the point then?
You Love someone? Tell them.
Someone has been a blessing? Tell them.
We all tweet “I Love my mother” ….. Have you actually told her
The truth is, life is fleeting. We never really know what’s to happen next.
Just this Sunday, lost a friend because a drunk 33-year-old woman was behind the wheels.
RIP Tundun Lawani
I Love You. We Love You.
Start talking today. Tell those who matter, that Yes, You matter. Let Them Know!
N.B: When I die, don’t start speaking oyinbo at my burial… tell me what need to be said now! At my burial, just chillax and eat cake all the way. I’ll be waiting for you in Heaven. I Love You too. 🙂
