“When I say, ‘Open your mouth’, open your mouth, Aaaahhhh, okay?” I instructed my picture-hungry giggling girlfriends as I snapped a well-scripted selfie.
I find it extremely impossible to survive this long season of my singlehood without my equally gorgeous and ‘unattached’ girlfriends. If perhaps there is one gift next to my family that I am overly thankful for, it would be this wonderful gift of friendship. There is none like it in this world. You cannot buy them as they’re not for sale. They are gifts wrapped in different shapes, ages, colours and personalities.
I know who to go to and confide with when I go through my own rollercoaster of emotions. And they will never fail to bring me back to my ‘normal’ happy jolly state.
I believe in what the bible says, “He who walks with the wise, grows wise but a companion of fools suffers harm.” It’s so true! I am so grateful that even as a young kid, my parents have taught me how to choose my friends wisely. Not that I tried to discriminate people I go out with, but to make friends not based on social, race or economic background, but to choose based on the person’s heart – and you would know what’s in their heart by their words and their actions. They are the kind of people who would help bring out the best in you, encourage you to pursue your dreams, draw you closer to God and love you even at your worst. And they are rare! That is why, it’s a gift!
So, to all my beautiful girlfriends who have been with me through thick and thin, you are precious! I speak overflowing blessings into your lives and may God protect you always as you each pursue His calling.
I love you. I can’t imagine living this life without you. You made my world a better place to live in because I have you by my side sharing my laughters and wiping my tears. Aww! God bless all of you! ❤️💋🙏🏼😇😘
