Every time it is mother’s or women’s day, every day, I think about mum, she was a rock, a solid foundation for who I am today. I saw my mother give the best of herself to give us the life she didn’t have herself, I saw her work hard, I saw live to the true meaning of what it means to be a mother, dead as she is, she is and will forever be the greatest woman in my life: for that, I am thankful.
THE WOMAN EVERY MAN, CHILD, NEEDS: OUR MOTHER, PATIENCE.
Momma was a hard-worker;
She woke up before everyone, always.
Picked up her garden tool, the hoe;
marched with ease to her garden.
She did this for years;
Yes, she was learned:
And, she had an office job.
But: that never stopped her, she dug every day;
I swear momma set the bar so high!
I told my sister a while back;
That she does ‘fit’ in momma’s shoes.
Yes; the shoes are very big—and weighty;
But she is trying.
Not because she goes to the garden;
because she learned her lessons.
And she employs them in many places.
We all learned from momma
That “Patience leads to Victory”;
And that hard work pays.
We are not where we want to be;
But with hard work, humility and Unity—
We shall get there; we are unlimited.
Does every family need a vegetable garden?
Does every family need a phenomenal woman?
Do women matter in society?
Is society dead without women?
To all these, as a matter of fact, YES!
Dear Ma may soul rest in eternal Peace
It hurts each day that you aren’t here with us but if that has taught me anything, it is that legacy isn’t how you are celebrated when you are alive but rather what remains of you when you are dead and gone, you are here each day, we celebrate you, we love you and miss you: see you when we get there.
