As the Women’s month of March comes to an end, I thought of writing two more blogs about some other special women in my life. Today am writing about my closest friends. These girls “get me”!! They are not necessarily the ones I spend the most time with, neither do I keep in touch with them as I should but they hold a special place in my heart.
I invite you to read and get to know me a bit more by knowing these Phenomenal Women.
Momo as she loves to be called is one of my “oldest” friends. We were together both in O’level and A’Level but closest at A ‘level. We were in the same hostel and were even “deckermates”. We shared whatever we owned; I remember we were in different streams which were quite apart but I would pick her up every break time and we would eat our snack which also doubled as lunch together.
I fell in love with her cheeks mostly; but serious she has a sweet face and her hug would make me feel safe and warm; a motherly bear hug!!
Life has thrown her way various challenges but she has remained a strong, steadfast, smiling woman. I celebrate our friendship My Mo. Love you.
Have you ever had that one person who loves you until you are suspicious? Mine is Naki. So I met this girl when I went to pick my uniform the weekend before school started. I didn’t really like the school I was going to so had no expectation nor enthusiasm of making new friends- leave alone instantly. So here I was at the gate not knowing where to go next and this cute chubby girl comes with a wide smile and introduces herself; as they say the rest is history. I later found out she was a celeb in school and all and would be the Head Girl and S.U mama. With all those airs plus the fact that she was in science class and me in arts, you could think that our chances of being friends were slim. That wasn’t to be so because she sought me out all the time. We have been close up to date and I can count on her love for me at all costs. She remembers my birthday every year plus all the other special moments in my life. I love you Tasha and can’t wait to be a god mother.
Carolina my dear; always looking out for me, making sure everything is alright, listening, laughing, crying and just being there. You my dear are a true sister of consolation; no wonder you fell on a brother with the same thingy (😉😉).
Diana my Roomie as if… so this girl’s room was my room at campus. Many people actually believed I resided in her hostel. We had lunch in her room, talked, watched “she wolf” plus anything else on T.V…If my phone was off or something, you just had to call Diana and you would instantly locate me. What beautiful memories we created in that room!!!; from sharing our past, to the present and dreaming of the future. We were a Trio with Suzan and ooh mehn what loud laughter we had in that room. I fell in trouble with “Centu” a number of times because of that room; – boiling room time would find me asleep out of exhaustion from either discussions or Jazz but mostly the later. I miss us Diana and Suzan!!!
Phiyo, my sister from another mother. We clicked instantly. Many people actually think we are biological sisters because of our resemblance. Your passion and zeal for the Lord is contagious. I have fond memories of us doing Mutungo Link, PPPN, Blood week, Season 21 plus lots of other things together. We have seen God answer our prayers one by one and this is just the beginning. The candid conversations we would have on the way are timeless. I miss seeing you every Sunday.
I Love you so much my girls.
