Honestly I don’t even remember how we met nine years ago, we were not best friends when we first met but we were just friends. I used to believe in coincidences and thought that we are friends just because we happen to have the same interests and almost all the times it just so happens that when I’m feeling like doing something or eating something you feel the same way. People used to ask and some even are asking how we are always together, having a great time talking and laughing yet we stay together and almost everyday we sleep late talking and laughing.You would think common sense says ‘I need a break from you Smacky’,because you are always there, everywhere.
We used to have dreams since high school of which most of them came to pass with the grace of the Lord and He continues to guide us through. Like I said before, everything that we lived from 9 years ago, I thought we got what we got because we were working hard, I thought we are staying together and are friends because we just happen to be in the same place at a particular time wanting the same thing. It is only recently when I realised that in my life there’s really nothing that is a coincidence, everything I’m living is predestined because of God’s Sovereign nature.
I learnt a lot of things from you Smacky and the biggest among all is your unconditional love and I still am learning. I wonder how much I would have learnt If i made this realization 3 or 5 years ago. You never know, maybe I met you so that I learn and know what I know now that I didn’t know before . Maybe if I have learnt that 5 years ago we wouldn’t be where we are today, the point is I’m grateful we are were we are now and I’m so grateful. If you were a humble friend I was going to list all the things I learnt from you but NO THANKS, I will tell you in August. Just know that you were a very huge blessing in my life and I pray and hope that whoever you are going to meet from now on see the blessing that you are, continue shining your light to everyone.
This is probably the last birthday that we will spend together like this, I don’t know what the future holds for both of us, but what I know is God has something great reserved for you. I wish you love, joy, happiness and peace all the time like before. There is something that I don’t know if I should be happy or sad you taught me slowly but surely, to be a food lover. Now people don’t believe me when I tell them that I used to be a very light eater and not to be a fan of ‘red blood cells’.
You are going to run away from me soon, yah you are right, this is me trying to make you feel bad. I wish you meet other great friends and probably this time around try to screen your friends and get one who will give you a better birthday present than a piece of writing. Being worried about physical presents is for children, you are a grown up I’m not expecting that from you.
HAVE A GREAT YEAR
LOTS OF LOVE
Your one and only
