It was a Friday like this, August 1st 1986 that you left us! Although you are not here in person, we see you everyday in each one of us your children and even in our children! God has blessed us and kept us! I miss you most when God shows up with momentous blessings such as graduations, weddings, birth of our children, church anniversaries, new church plants…
I sometimes wonder…
How you would rejoice with us
How you would react to some of the decisions we’ve made
How it would feel to show that I’m now physically stronger than you
How you and my princess Olu would get along
How you would play with your grand children
How it would feel to hear stories of my first few years from you
And many more…
On a day like this I am grateful to God for the woman God used to bring me to this earth! Although her journey was shorter than we wanted (May 1946 – Aug 1986), it was long enough to bring us to this planet and leave us a lasting legacy! Mom (Mrs Oluremi Sobanjo) You are always with us in thoughts, memory and biologically!
I’m grateful to God for his mercy and love for us! He sent help to our dad and to us! Instead of sorrow on this day after 28yrs all that my heart feels is peace, joy, gratitude and hope!
Mom I know you are at rest in heaven, on behalf of my sisters and our entire families we say once again! You are fondly remembered!
