Small Chops: The Gift of Community

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine Taken from my IG Page (IG: @OlayideM), originally posted on 12 July 2017. An unexpected hour with my friend Nkechi had me ever grateful to God for the gift of Community. Community isn’t defined by proximity, but defined by a mutual value and appreciation of the gift. Don’t let social media fool you into believing your community is tight, true Community doesn’t require validation from likes, RTs and views.

Life: Seeing Friendship in #GodsColourScheme

If you’re following me on Twitter you know there’s rarely a week that goes by when I’m not tweeting about how God has blessed me with some awesome friends. For a while now I’ve been wanting to post about friendship, but every time I tried, it never felt like “yeah this is it right here” – something was missing. Now if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen my little series of pictures #PetalPower. I’ve had some of these floral snaps on my phone for a while (dating back to Valentines Day 2014*). I always knew I wanted to post them, I just didn’t, until I was forced to create space on my iPhone! I didn’t want to delete the pictures until they had been posted and being that I had a few (only 14 of my few were posted) I said why not now?
