Two weeks ago, I attended a party review that took place in my school. The review featured some kids who were participating in different activities for the school’s end of session party.
These activities included: debate, cultural dance, singing, choreography, poem recitation and much more.
The teacher who taught them the dance was behind the hall, demonstrating alongside with them so they won’t miss a step and they didn’t. The organisation and determination the kids showcased were breathtaking.
I tried so hard to push the tears back but they kept pouring out like a waterfall. Thank God I had my face towel with me; I was just busy blinking fast and wiping my eyes stylishly so that the other students won’t notice. It was an awesome moment for me!
It was a moment that I knew I might not be opportune to witness again. I might attend another party review but I won’t see those kids doing that exact dance with that same music! Never!
When I left there that day, I made a resolution within myself to always cherish little moments that make life meaningful and worth living.
It is today’s little moments that become tomorrow’s precious memories.
I’m not joking; I heard her sing live and goosebumps literally appeared all over my skin. It was amazing meeting her; she is totally fun to be with. We were given a task to do together and I was thrilled although I didn’t show it.
Maybe she isn’t a superstar now but there’s a possibility of her becoming famous tomorrow. It was my little moment because I knew I may not experience such again!
When she becomes famous and I see her on TV, I’ll smile to myself and say I remember when Joy was a corper serving in my school and we worked on a project together*smiles*
My little sister would bury her face in my neck, giggling and breathing deeply *laughs* Yeah, those are the little moments that will always remain a part of me!
When any of his friends see us they would say “Oga, na your new babe be this?” He would laugh and say “Yes nah, you no know this my babe?” I truly miss those warm moments!
I also miss those nights when my younger sister would return from school, we would stay up all night talking and laughing about a lot of things until dawn. I have a lot of those little moments that really matter and I’m grateful for them!
