She said she was a goddess

Araoluwa told her mother and father that she was not a mere human being; she was an Orisha who simply chose to act like a human being for now because it looked like fun. She told them that she was honored to be raised by them as their own daughter, but that eventually she would become one with Olodumare, and of course they would, too. Meanwhile, she was learning to resist the temptation to turn her brothers into watery puddles or dry sticks tied together with string. She was learning the lessons of patience, humility, and kindness, and she realized that being human was a gift that she shouldn’t squander.
