"Hello friends, I just turned 46 years old today. I was born; Tuesday, Sept. 29, 1970. That makes me a bonafide middle aged woman. No be beans at all. You berra give me some respect, winkz. I love getting older. The older I get, the better I feel. I am highly honored to see this age. I owe it all to the architect of the universe for making it all possible.SWEETEST AFIKPO & AFIKPO CHILDREN & IGBOLAND: I am dedicating this birthday to the people of Afikpo.
YUMMIEST AFIKPO, my everything, you mean the world to me. There is nothing on earth I will not do to see you smile. You love me & I love you so madly. As long as I breath I must see to it that my lofty dreams for you & beyond becomes a reality. It is just a matter of time. Little time. I have set the wheel in motion; and it must surely come to pass. You over-trust me & know what I can do. All I have, all I acquire; is for you. I cannot eat until you eat. I cannot build until I build enough for you. I cannot enjoy until you enjoy. I shall serve myself last. Your burden is my burden for life. You are the great love of my life.
AFIKPO CHILDREN: Even a one year old Afikpo Child shouts "Maria" once he/she sights me. I am their own movie star, music star, super star, Rihana, Beyonce, Flavour, BIG MAN, Obama, ETC. Hahahaha. They can't get enough of me. The feeling is mutual because I cannot get enough of them either. They make me so happy, the make me feel alive, they make me feel extra-ordinary. In turn, there is nothing I will not do to make them feel special and happy. Dear Afikpo Children, I am working harder and smarter so I can make life much better and finer for you. I will continue to do whatever I can to keep you smiling and joyous. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
MY DARLING IGBOLAND. There is nothing, I mean nothing, sweeter than you on this earth. I love you and will always take very good care of you; to the best of my ability. It is my duty. And I am equal to the task.
MEA CULPA: Mea maximum culpa. If there is anyone I have offended, please, I am sorry. I am very very "no excuses" sorry. Forgive me. let us start afresh; hold hands & be merry again. Ka life naa agaga biko.
FORGIVEN: If anyone out there offended me, you are forgiven. You are completely "no holds barred" forgiven. Let us rekindle our relationship, please. Maka life is just too short to bear grudges & to keep remembering hurt. I wanna smile, laugh & dance more biko. Uwa bu ofu mbia.
DEAR FRIENDS!! Never give up. Hang on to your dreams and work diligently towards it. Magic happens when you don't give up; even though you want to. The universe always falls in love with a stubborn heart. Thanks for being a part of my birthday! I truly appreciate you.
