Happy Birthday Sweetheart,Daddy may be gone but you made him proud!..Enjoy your day!
My dearest daughter,
I wish you a very happy 21st birthday.I begin by reminding you of my favourite bible verse proverbs 3 :5-6. You will never go wrong as long as you commit all your ways into the Lord's hand.
I am happy for you today and I know if it is possible for your late dad , Tunde Oladepo to look down, he would be proud of you too.
I remember the day I gave birth to you like yesterday.when my labor pangs started, your father drove me to the sacred heart hospital in Abeokuta where I had registered for ante natal. In those days, the husband is made to stand outside with the bag until the nurse comes out to take you in after the baby is born. In Nigeria , things could turn awry for pregnant women,especially first timers like I was then.
So while I walked in to the labor room to give birth, I turned back to look at your father, this strong and confident man whose loins you came from and I saw a look of fear.The second time I would see that look on his face was when he saw the men who killed him walk into our room. The juxtaposes of life and death .
I know I have told you this story numerous times, as we drove home, we almost had an accident because your besotted father could not take his eyes off you. I want you to know that he would have given you everything, even his life. One story readily came to my mind. You started school very early at Lawson elementary school. One day we sent you to school as usual and they called your dad to come to the hospital and take you home.
I remember that he had to bring you back home early....I was pregnant with your sister then . He laid you on the couch beside me and wept. He was so overwhelmed with gratitude that we didn't lose you to the fever you had and I remember he vividly said "i would rather die than lose her" . Such was his love for you. I can't tell of how much I love you but I hope I have been able to prove over the years that you and your siblings are the best thing to happen to me and I love you wholeheartedly.
You, this beautiful , intelligent and strong woman is a product of me , your father who sired you and loved you and the father who raised you with me and loves you.
I remember your younger sister , MBJ,saying during that infamous incident " we can't live without Femi"... She is right. You are the pillar that holds this family together. The way you take charge over everything is a thing of pride for me. During this last years , I have watched as you and your sister help me through a very painful separation and I say thank you.
I think your wings are strong enough to fly on your own now my dear daughter. I trust your judgement because I know they are sound and wise. I will always be here to guide you when you need it.Always show love even when it is difficult to do. Always have love in your heart and not hatred. I look forward to the great woman I know you will be. happy-birthday my love.
