La la la la, take me Home. Mummy, I’m coming Home


Hello Mum…

Hi Sweetie, how are you? Sorry we didn’t call to wish you Happy Easter, we were busy and had lots of guests around.

It’s ok, at least I’m glad everyone is ok.

Yes we are indeed fine. Well, I just wanted you to know that your brother is getting married in July and you have to come home.

*Jaw drops* OMG, seriously?. …As in seriously?

I can still recall every bit of the phone conversation I had with my mum today. Wow... Time changes, people grow up. It just seems like it’s always been us six (mom, dad, Ty, By, Tope, and me). Even with our cousin’s who were constantly around, we still have always been a unit.  So finally TY is going to marry his one and only love, Wunmi.  He has proposed and is going to walk down the aisle in July! It’s going to be such a wonderful day. Anyone that knows them knows that they are made for each other. Where one lacks, the other one makes up for. Where one shines, the other stands back in admiration. It’s really cute to watch. And although our family unit is happily changing, I will always have fond memories of the 6 of us laughing and spending good times together.

I’m so happy for him. He found a wonderful girl who loves the Lord and who loves him. They adore each other and are so cute together.  My now sister-in-law is wonderful and she sounds sweeter on the phone. I have no doubt that she will make my brother happy.

I admire my brother and YEAH!! I am very excited that he is getting married.  I’m even more excited that I will be there. I never even thought of going back home this year but now I’m so looking forward to July, spending so much time with my family is the best thing ever.

I have no doubt that Ty will be a faithful husband and father. God has given him a different story, a different adventure from mine, it’s clear that it’s the same God, the same Father weaving the details together into glory, into something beautiful. We’ll stand up in a few months in and we’ll ask Jesus to smile down on this new family. We’ll ask Him for the same miracle He’s been spinning for the last six thousand years…

What more can I ask for?
