To My MGM, A Mighty Good & Hardworking Man
No, it is not his birthday and no, it is not Valentines day either. It is really just any other ordinary day. But what will set it apart from most of the other days is that it is the day that I choose to hail my mgm publicly on my blog for waking up at 3am to provide for his family.No big deal some might say and they are free to say but I maintain that when a man wakes up at 3am to make a journey to a bottle producing factory all the way across town all in a bid to beat sanitation, then such man is worthy of my public hailing.
As I type these words I am looking at him and he is fast asleep, sleeping the sleep of the totally knackered. Sleeping a well deserved sleep. One he has not slept in 2 days. My Father in love has not been doing too well and has been with us, seeing doctors and having tests. One thing on his mind. Schools resume soon so school fees on his mind. Orders are pouring in, we need more delivery trucks on his mind! Crazy behaving workers who do not get what it means to work in a structured environment and only want to steal you blind are on his mind. And I could go on but I will not. Suffice to say that my mgm has a lot on his mind. In spite of it all, he is staying on top of his game. It can only be God.
Many times in this marriage, I have wanted to smack him and if you have been coming here long enough, you have heard me say so. Many times, I have even thought of running away (that too you have heard me say albeit in mock jest) but today, this time, right now, all I want to do is hail my mgm and tell him 'well done'. Well done my mighty good and hardworking man. God will surely reward your hard labour cos doing clean business in this country of ours is pure hard labour! Love, just keep remembering that God is your Source. I know it is tough building this our business but God to whom we have entrusted it all, will continue to breathe on it and grow it in Jesus name. Amen.
Sometimes I watch you when you are not looking and I can see the worry in your eyes and I can hear the worry in your sighs when you sleep and I want you to know, should in case you have forgotten or allowed life and times to befuddle your mind, that I am standing with you in true love and prayers. Of course you are not perfect and neither am I. Of course you have hurt me and I have hurt you but I don't know about you but as for me, I shall not exchange you for any other out there. As it is inscribed in our rings - Henry Forever, Abimbola Together. As far as I am concerned, God ordained for us, you and I, Henry and Abimbola to be Together Forever. And when God ordains a thing, who can withstand it?
No one, not even you. Not even me. Not matter how stupidly we try.
So my love, my mgm as you lie snoring by my side, I just want you to know via this truly public blog memo that you are appreciated. And truly loved. Please when ever the enemy brings his lies to sell to you (cos I know he is not selling them to only us women) please crush him with the truth I know you know. I hear you pray and I know you know what God says. Hold on to God's promises to you. About you. About us. About our children and our future. OK?
This time last year we were only producing sachet water now see what God has done. We have 75 cl bottles. We have 19.5 litre dispenser jugs. ICE is being sold in stores and served in hotels! I know it is just the beginning but already it is like I am dreaming. It is indeed marvelous in my sight. My mgm, my truly good, hardworking and determined man of God. I am with you all the way. Like white on rice. Like the hump on the camel. My only power is true, unconditional love and prayer and trust me, I am praying o!
Yes, I, the DNW am praying for my MGM. Always. Forever.
True, I know it is not your birthday but just thought to let you know.
It is the least I could do to say thank you for waking up at 3am, being on the road all day today and just coming back home at 10pm knowing that you are working this hard for me, for us, for our children and for our future.
Love you babes but as with everyone I care about deeply, I am so happy God loves you more.
