Some hours ago Mercy Johnson’s husband Prince Okojie used his Instagram page to announce the birth of the fourth child a baby girl . He wrote,
“Every Good and Perfect gift is from God. The wait is finally Over, Please share in Our Joy as we announce the arrival of Our Daughter.
Divine-Mercy Ehinomen Okojie.”
A very big congratulations to the Okojies.
However,it brought to mind the interview Mercy Johnson had with Punch Newspaper in the year 2016.
During the interview she said,
“I feel that when you haven’t gone through life and you don’t have a bearing in life, that ’s when you see certain decisions as unreasonable…
I had planned my life right from when I was growing up. I arranged my life the way I wanted it to go. And that is why even when I was at the peak of my career and marriage came , I grabbed it because I know age keeps going and time waits for no one.
It means that I can have all of my four kids and then still get back to shape and come back to what I love to do. So, I am not going to say things like, ‘I don’t want to have kids yet’ or ‘I am not going to get married and I want to keep acting because the young shall always grow’, you are not going to be number one forever. .
That is why when it is time for you to do something, you do it . Yoruba will always say in their prayers that when the time for a child to talk has come, by the grace of God, she will talk. When it’s time to go to school, he will go to school. That’s what I’m trying to do”
Finally her dream of having four kids came to pass.
My dear friends, having a viable career and a great family are not mutually exclusive. The combo may not happen at the same time but it’s doable, with careful planning, commitment, and patience. Don’t give up. Don’t abandon one for the other.
