MOLD,

Making sacrifices

Hi guys, now let me tell you how I spent last saturday. You know I have been in the ‘owambe’ mood for quite a while now. – it’s been a while I attended an ‘owambe’ and yes I prefer weddings or burial ceremonies of very very old people ( the ones that have spent more than extra time in life) – finally my most anticipated wedding was upon me, oh how I had patiently waited for this. The wait was finally over I will be owambe-ing today. Ready, I was! And yes, Super excited! haha I had dressed up and snapped a million selfies in my head. Plus the pictures of Party Jollof, oh what a feeling.

 

I was over the moon and preparations were underway until I got a call from my friend Biola, reminding me of the shoot for her clothing line and the date? My owambe Saturday! Devil is a liar!!! I was going to tell her I wasn’t going to be available, of course I am booked. You already know I have to be at the wedding. But then she started the call conversation by complaining about everything and how everybody was disappointing her. She was calling so I will comfort her, not add to the problem, so I couldn’t tell her I won’t also be around. I then concluded, since the shoot will be in the morning, I will go for the wedding reception after.

On Friday evening, I got a call from my boss and asking me to come to be at work on Saturday for a procedure by 12pm. Instantly I told my boss I couldn’t make it because I have a family wedding to attend and Saturday was totally booked for me. I finally succumbed after he made me see reasons why I had to be at work. “My boss is a very nice and considerate man; how can I say no?” I thought to myself.
Saturday became the day I had to divide myself into three. So I change my plan: I was going to be at work by 12pm, be out of there after completing the procedure by 1pm, I will be at Biola’s shoot by 1:30 max, then finally be at the wedding my 3/4pm. Sounds like the perfect thing to do right? Afterall most weddings starts by 6/7pm in Lagos. The painful thing about those kind of plan is that “it only works out in your head”.

Saturday finally arrived, it started with a very rough morning but I was still able to make it to the office by 12pm. When I got to work, the patient had not arrived. By 1pm when she had still not come, I had to cancel and leave so I could meet up with the shoot. I finally got to the shoot in time but the makeup artist was still on the first model. So I made myself busy sending my post’s email while waiting patiently for my turn to beat thy face. Fast-forward to 4pm, we started taking the pictures. When we were done, I touched up my makeup, had my gele tied; I was just about to step out when I got a call from my mum telling me the wedding was over and she was about to leave Lagos. Oh I forgot to include we were going outside Lagos Saturday evening to see someone.

P.S. If there is anything I know about friendship, making time and sacrifices is one of the secret of a long-lasting strong bond. I missed the wedding which was lit on snapchat, and to crown it all “the parry jollof rice”, and I didn’t perform the procedure for my patient but I was able to come through for a friend and am glad I did, and yes! a real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.

Don’t forget to comment about my lovely outfit…… kisses

True friendship demands a lot from us and one of them is sacrifice. But sacrifice can also be very expensive. Hopefully we can afford it when a friend really really needs it. Nice one Mola. Nice dress too

Don’t worry. You still have a lots of weddings to attend. God owns us and even our plans. Once you commit your day into His hand, He plans it perfectly for us. So stay calm. Nice attire. I would like to see more of it.
