Veteran Actress, Joke Silva Pens Emotional Note To Self As She Clocks 60
Joke Silva, a veteran actress, wrote an emotional letter to herself on the occasion of her 60th birthday on Wednesday.
She used her verified Instagram page to reflect on her past experiences and the people she had lost in the previous ten years.
“Ten years ago today on my 50th birthday, we had our renewal of vows in Freedom Park on Lagos Island.
“Pastor Tony Rapu remarried us. Sir J and I. Six pastors were also part of the team that officiated.
“In the congregation was my Mum Dr (Mrs) Abimbola Silva. She had taken wine and white Ankara as aso ebi for the family.
“My aunties Mrs Gbemi Rosiji, Aunty Olga Miller, Aunty Francesca Emmanuel were all there. All of them are in their 80s.
“All of them are now on the other side of eternity. My almost twin sister Bisi was also there.
“She too is on the other side of eternity. With my Dad and my late daughter.
“I believe that’s what happens the older we get…the more milestones we hit. Memories of those we have loved and lost.
“However, being on this side of eternity is so good too. Challenging …definitely especially the last 5years.
“Wawoo. A massive thank you to my sons Soji @mrjacobs_jnr and Gbenga @oj_poetry, my daughter Blessing @_blessing_douglas and granddaughter Dayo @atarahbaby for making these years bearable.
“Also my staff; Paulina, Micheal, John. Without this team, these last 5years would have been impossible.
“Now the big 60 is here and I thank God for His oh so massive mercies. Yes, that’s it. Gratitude for health, for love of family and friends. Thank you, Lord.”
