She wrote, “So Sorry I am flooding your Timeline 🥺. I just can’t contain my joy 💃🎉💯💃.
The picture on the left was the day Michelle left Nigeria. It was a roller coaster of emotions for me. I was happy because it had always been my dream, but I was super scared that she would be all by herself in a foreign land. I was worried and couldn’t sleep for days, pondering if I made the right decision. We often hear stories about kids studying abroad and the potential for them to succumb to peer pressure. Whew! I was so worried she was going to be alone in a strange land! I couldn’t go with her that very day because I couldn’t afford a ticket for both of us then, as I had used all my money to pay school fees (hmm, that’s a story for another day). I had to send her unaccompanied, stayed up all night, kept waiting for my phone to ring. Hmmm, you have no idea! It was a tough period for me, but God showed up strong 🥲.
The picture on the right is NOW! God made my dream come true! He kept me in great health to see this day, empowered me to see her through (it wasn’t easy, but God in His infinite mercy did it)… There were times I almost gave up. I remember a particular year when it wasn’t easy, and I had even told Michelle that she might need to come back and finish in one of the universities back home. I had too many responsibilities, and things were not going smoothly, but I never stopped working! And GOD DID IT!
Please, if you are alive, if you can move your hands, legs, and every part of your body, if you can see and read my post, please help me type THANK YOU GOD in the comment section. Just help me THANK GOD 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏. I can’t stop thanking God! My heart is so full of gratitude 🙏 🙏🙏🙏.
MASTERS, next, and I am confident God will still do it 🙏.
THANK YOU GOD 🙏.”
