It took me missing my Mum's 50th Birthday last year to realize how much I love and adore this woman of strength, prayer and love! If there is any part of me that I've struggled deeply about, it'd have to be my relationship with my mother. It took me years to realize how much she really loved me and how much of her time, resources and gift she poured inside of me to raise me to the best of her ability. . . we'd argue, I'd be mad, I'd cry, she won't understand me. . . I'd be wishing so bad that she does! Believe me, motherhood is a ministry and God wasn't confused choosing that family for us to grow in. . . some people will tell me back then that my relationship with my mum was like that because I looked so much like her😁. . . 'hell yea! I do!'. . . that woman went through 3 days of keeping it together under intense pain so she could hold me in her arms, how could she not love me!. . . when we were young, she would run a B.Ed at Ekiti and I'd watch my Dad take on the motherly role. . . I never really knew back then though! The stories were always sweet when they share them. . . these two were great examples to me! Some nights she'd come into our room when the sleep was sweetest and say 'oya let's go and pray' and I'd be like 'wtf!' _______________
Happy Mothers' Day Mama! What I saw differently back then I know better now. . . thanks for passing your great culinary skills to me cos no one does it better! My Dad will say 'mummy yin try o t'egan ni e😊'. . . we've seen you wake up before 5am countless times that when it's 5am for morning prayer, we'd be grumbling when you knock our door but believe me Mama, my body hardly wakes up later than 5am! Thanks for instilling in us values that'd never leave. . . thanks for being a great example to us on how to love and respect our man when we become Mrs. Thanks for teaching me and my sisters that when a man has #5 ,000 and a woman has #15 ,000, the total amount in that house is #20k !!!!
May God bless you and keep you, may He make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; may He lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace!. . . #HappyMothersDayMama . . . I wouldn't have wanted another womb💕
