My dearest friend, the sweetest friend money can’t buy.My dearest friend, the sweetest friend money can’t buy. You are the best among the best. I can’t tell you how happy I am that God brought you my way in 2008. You are part of a circle of friends that make my life a whole lot better. I am sure your parents would agree that they are blessed to have a beautiful daughter like you, a bundle so precious beyond words. I know I am blessed to know you.
If I am annoying then ‘my Ella’ is twice annoying but I love her all the same. She is my sister from another mother bringing the total number of sisters I have to four- Chisom, Chinemelum, Amaka and Ella (won’t divulge her native name because she will have my head for that.) you bring me joy beyond words can describe. I think of you and smiles come to my face and I continually thank God for your life.
Even though we don’t see eye-to-eye on issues, you are the best friend of all time. My Ella as I love to call her is a talented person but often doesn’t know it. At times, she acts so insecure that I wish I could just shake her and tell her that she is stronger than she believes. My Ella who was there for me every time I was down; I remember a letter she gave me in 2009, she said I was a star. (I am sure she doesn’t know that I still have the letter but its one of my treasured possessions.)
You will always have a place in my heart and life. I will always have your back, that’s one thing you can be sure of. Our friendship will grow sweeter and better with time. My Ella you are stronger than you believe. You are God’s image and likeness, so everything that you need to succeed is in there. I believe in you and the power of God that is active inside of you.
Since I commend all my friends into the hands of God, you will not be an exception dearest friend.
I ask God to bless you so much that you wonder what you have done to deserve such blessings.
I ask Him to lavish His love on you so that all you can do is to praise His name.
I ask Him to give you grace so that you make the right decisions and never stray from Him.
Because I know you want to marry and I want to marry too, I ask God to give us both good husbands, the ones He has kept for us from the beginning of time and children both male and female to surround our tables. This prayer extends to all my sisters and all those looking for life-partners.
I ask Him to make his word the cornerstone in your life.
I ask Him to make you strong in Him that you may always walk in his paths.
I ask Him to favor you and give you all your good heart desires.
I ask Him to give you understanding, wisdom, joy, and peace that surpass all understanding.
I ask Him finally to be your shield and protector.
Happy birthday my dearest friend and sister.
Hope we can get together and have a blast, if not keep my own cake for me. So now close your eyes, blow out the candles and make a wish.
May you soar far above the eagles’ heights. May you dream dreams, achieve all you set out to achieve, leave footprints in the sands of time, write your name in the hallmark of fame, be a source of blessing to your family and generation, and be all that God has made you to be. You deserve the very best dear and because I know God’s plans for you are for good, you will get the very best.
Happy birthday once again.
I love you plenty. Plenty hugs and kisses from me to you.
May God bless you abundantly.
Say no to insurgency and YES to a peaceful Nigeria.
