This teenager lived alone with
his father, and the two of
them had a very special
Even though the son was
always on the bench, his
father was always in the
stands cheering. He never
missed a game.
This young man was still the
smallest of the class when he
entered high school.
But his father continued to
encourage him but also made
it very clear that he did not
have to play football if he
didn't want to.
But the young man loved
football and decided to hang
in there.
He was determined to try his
best at every practice, and
perhaps he'd get to play
when he became a senior.
All through high school he
never missed a practice nor a
game, but remained a bench
warmer all four years.
His faithful father was always
in the stands, always with
words of encouragement for
When the young man went to
college, he decided to try out
for the football team as
a"walk-on." Everyone was
sure he could never make the
cut, but he did. The coach
admitted that he kept him on
the roste because he always
puts his heart and soul into
every practice, and at the
same time, provided the
other members with the
spirit and hustle they badly
The news that he had
survived the cut thrilled him
so much that he rushed to
the nearest phone and called
his father.
His father shared his
excitement and was sent
season tickets for all the
college games.
This persistent young athlete
never missed practice during
his four years at college, but
he never got to play in the
It was the end of his senior
football season, and as he
trotted onto the practice
field shortly before the big
play off game, the coach met
him with a telegram. The
young man read the telegram
and he became deathly silent.
Swallowing hard, he mumbled
to the coach, "My father died
this morning. Is it all right if I
miss practice today?"
The coach put his arm gently
around his shoulder and said,
"Take the rest of the week
off, son. And don't even plan
to come back to the game on
Saturday arrived, and the
game was not going well. In
the third quarter, when the
team was ten points behind,
a silent young man quietly
slipped into the empty locker
room and put on his football
As he ran onto the sidelines,
the coach and his players
were astounded to see their
faithful team mate back so
"Coach, please let me play.
I've just got to play today,"
said the young man.
The coach pretended not to
hear him. There was no way
he wanted his worst player in
this close play off game. But
the young man persisted, and
finally feeling sorry for the
kid, the coach gave in.
"All right," he said. "You can
go in."
Before long, the coach, the
players and everyone in the
stands could not believe their
eyes. This little unknown,
who had never played before
was doing everything right.
The opposing team could not
stop him. He ran, he passed,
blocked and tackled like a
star. His team began to
The score was soon tied. In
the closing seconds of the
game, this kid intercepted a
pass and ran all the way for
the winning touch down.
The fans broke loose. His
team mates hoisted him onto
their shoulders. Such
cheering you've never heard!
Finally, after the stands had
emptied and the team had
showered and left the locker
the coach noticed that the
young man was sitting
quietly in the corner all alone.
The coach came to him and
said, "Kid, I can't believe it.
You were fantastic! Tell me
what got into you?
How did you do it?"
He looked at the coach, with
tears in his eyes, and said,
"Well, you knew my dad died,
but did you know that my
dad was blind?"
The young man swallowed
hard and forced a smile, "Dad
came to all my games, but
today was the first time he
could see me play, and I
wanted to show him 'I COULD
DO IT'!"
God has good plans for you,
but barriers in life changes
Accept God today and you

Silent Love_________________
read it
10th grade:
As I sat there in English class,
I stared at the girl next to
me. She was my so called
“best friend”. I stared at
her long, silky hair, and
she was mine. But she
didn’t notice me like that,
and I knew it.
After class, she walked up to
me and asked me for the
notes she had missed the day
before and handed them to
her. She said “thanks” and
shake hand with me. I
wanted to tell her, I want her
to know that I don’t want
to be just friends, I love her
but I’m just too shy, and I
don’t know why.
11th grade
The phone rang. On the other
end, it was her. She was in
tears, mumbling on and on
about how her love had
broke her heart. She asked
me to come over because she
didn’t want to be alone, so
I did. As I sat next to her on
the sofa, I stared at her soft
eyes, wishing she was mine.
After 2 hours, one Drew
Barrymore movie, and three
bags of chips, she decided to
go to sleep.
She looked at me, said
“thanks” and gave me
sweet smile. I want to tell
her, I want her to know that
I don’t want to be just
friends, I love her but I’m
just too shy, and I don’t
know why.
Senior year
The day before prom she
walked to my locker. “My
date is sick” she said; he’s
not going to go well, I
didn’t have a date, and in
7th grade, we made a
promise that if neither of us
had dates, we would go
together just as “best
friends”. So we did.
Prom night, after everything
was over, I was standing at
her front door step! I stared
at her as she smiled at me
and stared at me with her
crystal eyes. I want her to be
mine, but she isn’t think of
me like that, and I know it.
Then she said “I had the
best time, thanks!” and
gave me a sweet smile. I
want to tell her, I want her
to know that I don’t want
to be just friends, I love her
but I’m just too shy, and I
don’t know why.
Graduation Day
A day passed, then a week,
then a month. Before I could
blink, it was graduation day. I
watched as her perfect body
floated like an angel up on
stage to get her diploma. I
wanted her to be mine, but
she didn’t notice me like
that, and I knew it.
Before everyone went home,
she came to me in her smock
and hat, and cried as I
hugged her. Then she lifted
her head from my shoulder
and said, “You’re my best
friend, thanks”. I want to
tell her, I want her to know
that I don’t want to be just
friends, I love her but I’m
just too shy, and I don’t
know why.
A Few Years Later
Now I sit in the pews of the
church. That girl is getting
married now. I watched her
say “I do” and drive off to
her new life, married to
another man. I wanted her to
be mine, but she didn`t see
me like that, and I knew it.
But before she drove away,
she came to me and said
“you came!”. She said
“thanks” and kissed me on
the cheek. I want to tell her, I
want her to know that I
don’t want to be just
friends, I love her but I’m
just too shy, and I don’t
know why.
Years passed, I looked down
at the coffin of a girl who
used to be my “best
friend”. At the service, they
read a diary entry she had
wrote in her high school
This is what it read:
I stare at him wishing he was
mine, but he doesn’t notice
me like that, and I know it. I
want to tell him, I want him
to know that I don’t want
to be just friends, I love him
but I’m just too shy, and I
don’t know why. I wish he
would tell me he loved me!
I wish I did too… I thought to
my self, and I cried. :'(
Thumbs up if its touched
your heart...:'(

When I heard of this story, I
almost cried.
I have decided to share it
with you today.
Share with others too.
I was walking around in a Big
Bazar store making shopping,
when I saw a Cashier talking
to a boy couldn't have been
more than 5 or 6 years old..
The Cashier said, "I'm sorry,
but you don't have enough
money to buy this doll."
Then the little boy turned to
me and asked: ''Uncle, are
you sure I don't have enough
I counted his cash and
replied: ''You know that you
don't have enough money to
buy the doll, my dear.''
The little boy was still holding
the doll in his hand.
Finally, I walked toward him
and I asked him who he
wished to give this doll to.
"It's the doll that my sister
loved most and wanted so
much . I wanted to Gift her
for her BIRTHDAY.
I have to give the doll to my
mommy so that she can give
it to my sister when she goes
His eyes were so sad while
saying this. My Sister has
gone to be with God..
Daddy says that
Mommy is going to see God
very soon too, so I thought
that she could take the doll
with her to give it to my
My heart nearly stopped. The
little boy looked up at me and
said: "I told daddy to tell
mommy not to go yet.
I need her to wait until I
come back from the mall."
Then he showed me a very
nice photo of him where he
was laughing. He then told
"I want mommy to take my
picture with her so my sister
won't forget me."
"I love my mommy and I wish
she doesn't have to leave me,
but daddy says that she has
to go to be with my little
Then he looked again at the
doll with sad eyes, very
I quickly reached for my
wallet and said to the boy,
"Suppose we check again,
just in case you do have
enough money for the doll?''
'OK' he said, 'I hope I do have
enough.' I added some of my
money to his with out him
seeing and we started to
count it. There was enough
for the doll and even some
spare money.
The little boy said:
"Thank you God for giving me
enough money!"
Then he looked at me and
added, "I asked last night
before I went to sleep for
God to make sure I had
enough money to buy this
doll, so that mommy could
give It to my sister.
He heard me!''
"I also wanted to have
enough money to buy a
white rose for my mommy,
but I didn't dare to ask God
for too much. But He gave me
enough to buy the doll
and a white rose.
My mommy loves white
I finished my shopping in a
totally different state from
when I started. I couldn't get
the little boy out of my mind.
Then I remembered a local
news paper article two days
ago, which mentioned a
drunk man in a truck, who hit
a car occupied by a young
woman and a little girl. The
little girl died right away, and
the mother was left in a
The family had to decide
whether to pull the plug on
the life-sustaining machine,
because the young woman
would not be able to recover
from the coma. Was this the
family of the little boy?
Two days after this
encounter with the little boy,
I read in the news paper that
the young woman had
passed away.. I couldn't stop
myself as I bought a bunch
of white roses
I went to the funeral home
where the body of the young
woman was exposed for
people to see and make
last wishes before her burial.
She was there, in her coffin,
holding a beautiful white
rose in her hand with the
photo of the little boy and
the doll placed over her
I left the place, teary-eyed,
feeling that my life had been
changed for ever...
The love that the little boy
had for his mother and his
sister is still, to this day, hard
to imagine. And in a fraction
of a second, a drunk driver
had taken all this away from

MTN came to Nigeria at a time
when nobody wanted to
invest in Nigeria, at a time
when Nigerians did not have
phones. Even Zenith Bank
refused to lend MTN cash to
operate, UBA rejected MTN’s
offer - but today see the
difference. Millions of
Nigerians, and Africans have
cell phones and many use
MTN! And, we all know the
story of the only civilian
unelected President in Nigeria
- Goodluck Jonathan.
We know how people said he
was not going to be
President, they even made
him acting President. Today
the rest is history!
What about Cowbell? When
they came to Nigeria, they
made milk in a sachet. Peak
laughed at them - they said
Cowbell was milk for the poor
and they were right! 3 million
poor people could afford N10
a day for a sachet of milk.
Do the math - 3 million people
buying milk at N10.00- that
was N30million every single
day. In a month they grossed
N900million (almost N1billion).
Even Peak have had to make
sachet milk in order to
survive in the market.
So what have people told
you? What have they said
you cannot do, that you are
not qualified to do, or for
that matter do not have the
experience to do? They told
Cowbell, they told Goodluck,
they told MTN, but today the
story has changed.
Success is not about where
you graduated from, but
what graduates from you!
Keep the spirit!
