Courageous

Once I returned home, I called Jumilah, to check in on the day before the wedding and thank her again for inviting us.


“Hello, Jumilah Kandey speaking,” she answered the call in a professional tone.


“Hi, Jumilah, it’s Nina del Reyan here,” I replied.


“Hello, Nina,” Jumilah responded cheerily.


“I’m looking forward to the wedding tomorrow,” I told her. “Thank you for inviting us, we really appreciate it.”


“No worries, it’s our pleasure,” Jumilah insisted. “I’m just putting the finishing touches together.”


“Let me know if there’s absolutely anything I can help out with,” I offered. “I’ve done that for a couple of friends, errands don’t bother me.”


“You’re a courageous woman.”


Jumilah provided me with a few tasks, like chasing up the florist. I felt pleased to be able to help out.
