In the end what really counts is how well we lived and not how long.
This I’ve always known, but I saw in reality through the life Tola lived.
I can say with all confidence that I have no regrets marrying her because I knew she was God’s will for my life.
In the short time we spent together, God used her tremendously to break me and change me.
In her words, few days after we got married:
“Shola, I love you and I feel blessed by God to have been given this opportunity to be married to someone like you. My prayer for you is that God will give you someone like me who will love you just as much and more than I love you”
I had to shut her up.
Those words she told me- that at the time, I was scared to handle, are the words that encourage me now.
I got to share accounts of my time with Tola late last year on ebonylifetv. I remember how intense it was in the studio.
I’m more of a talker than a writer so here is my own tribute to Tola and the awesome memories we shared together.
I pray this encourages someone to rise above hurts and fear and live strong.
With much love – Shola Ajayi.
