As I lay soaking in a hot bath a few minutes ago, I reminisced on the events of the week gone by. One particular conversation struck my mind. It went thus:
Me: "Hi I'm here to see Mr. Watsisname*"
Man: "Oh please come in, I'll just get him out of the freezer"
(I had gone to a funeral home to view the body of a deceased man who was to be cremated)
Reflecting on that statement, I realise that at the end of our transient journey here on earth, our bodies are no different from sausages and milk.....kept in the fridge for a short time until finally disposed.
We spend so much of our lives trying to "maintain" this body sometimes forgetting to look after the part of us that will live for eternity- our souls.
May our daily pursuits not overshadow our main purpose. Amen
I shall now proceed to devour my hot bowl of Isi-ewu with a chilled glass of Malta Guinness. It's 10:30 at night and I can hear someone saying calories but who cares. #YOLO
