My Mother!



Who sat and watched my infant head,
When sleeping on my cradle bed,
And tears of sweet affection shed?
My mother!

Yay! My mum is a year older today.
My amazing mum who has always been there for me.
Always warm. Always loving. Never judging, Never Criticizing.
Till date she will always empty her purse and give out whatever is inside if you ask her for anything. Theres nothing she can't do for her kids.
When I was in boarding school she would make sure she traveled down with me and when I couldn't carry my box cos of my tiny size she would carry my big box on her head and I would squirm in embarrassment.
Which kain disgrace be that?lol.
She would ignore me,hiss and say "who is looking at me"?

She's put up with a lot of the stuff I do.
My craze and my drama.
Lots of mood swings and irritability.
Some things I do and say and can't really explain why.

I hurt her sometimes but she always forgives me.
Sometimes before I even apologized.
Even when I still repeat  it over and over.
She always forgives me
And tries to understand me.
Cos I can be  difficult.

She knows when to leave me alone!
When to interfere.
When to pray.
When to motivate me.
When to encourage me.

I love you a lot mum.
And I am happy that God has deemed it fit to add a year to your age today.
I thank God you are alive.
And I pray that you live to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

From your Troublesome but ehm Dear Daughter.

P.S. Today is also one of my colleague's birthday. Aaaaaand I love her a lot. (Are you happy now) lol

    1. Lol, Mama Reese's real name or mine. hehe.
      Let's start with yours na.
      Hmmm! Its really funny that you ask that question today of all days.
      I have decided to at least start emailing and talking on phone with some of the blog fam who are game.
      Of course Tribe isn't a criterion. I guess it's the way I put it.Will edit later.
