My special birthday surprise from Jill and Tim.

“Happy Birthday, My Special Bavi, My BFF, lovely mentor, Sister, and overall wonderful human being. So grateful, and humbled to have you in my life Thank you for all that you do for me and others. Hope you have a spectacular birthday”

 

    The pass few months have been such dark moments for me as my Dad was critically sick. Despite all the medical attention he died on the 4th of August as we attempted evacuating to Nigeria where he could get more proper medical attention.

Extremely devastated after his burial especially as he has been standing in the gap most of the time for my husband since he is still in jail. I wasn't motivated and ready for any celebrations on my 50th birthday which was on the 24th of August. I remember my lovely sister and friend Jill asked me a few days before what my plans were and I said I wasn't motivated and so had no plans.

   Then came the D Day. I felt even worst especially as I wasn't going to get my normal birthday call from Dad or have him stop by my house with a broad smile to wish me a happy birthday. My husband wasn't there either. For a moment I thought "what a cruel world and that I had almost lost everything. In tears I stayed all morning in my room feeling like I was in hell.

My children had sung a birthday song for me and Therese my daughter had promised baking me a special birthday cake. That cheered me up for a short while. 

 I had unusually not turned on my phone that morning. That is to tell you how sad I was. When I eventually did at about 11am, logged on to face book, I screamed out with tears of joy running down my eyes. Tim and Jill had posted this lovely special birthday video and the best birthday message I ever received as seen above.

. I felt very uplifted and blessed God for bringing both of them into my life. Thank you so much amazing Jill and adorable Tim.

 My always lovely Jill, I must say I admire your humility, and am sure a lot of women on World Pulse and beyond also do. Through your lovely birthday message, I feel highly humbled myself have been able to impact your life in my own little ways. Thank you for appreciating me and make me feel more confident. Thank you for all you are not only to me and my family but to every single person you have impacted especially the girls on world Pulse. I call you my super angel, ooh yes you truly are!!

Thank you for always standing by and for caring and watching over my children and I.

Thank you also for your special birthday song to your lovely Therese on her birthday which made her super happy.

Thank you also for being my special sister, coach, mentor, BFF and above all my Earth angel!! I promise our deep connection will last forever.

Wow! Hello sisters. I am so thrilled and happy for this basket of love that I am receiving from the two of you this afternoon. Regina, sweetheart, a belated but genuine happy birthday wish to you! And a special milestone indeed. You know, usually I would log onto World Pulse and go straight to "recent" posts. But today, I did it backwards and I saw this and my heart just melts. There are angels on this earth and truly, Jill is one of them - if not the best of them!

May God bless you dear Regina. May you rise and grow from strength to strength. May you experience many more sunrises and sunsets with happiness and health.

Much love!

Thanks dear sister. Yes dear you are right about Jill. She is the most kindhearted person I met on planet earth. Am humbled about her being my Earth Angel. She is absolutely the best Angel God created. I can say it again and again.
Dear sis, thank you for the blessings and good wishes. I claim them in Jesus Name.
