Mom of life

Today is my mom's birthday and I want to use this platform to honour her today in my writing.

She's a most unique woman. 'Yea, who won't talk good about her mom', you are probably thinking right now. Well, it's not my fault that she's altogether good and I thank God for giving me her for a mother.

Let me tell you about my mom.
First, she is a godly woman. She's a practical christian. She brought us up in christian principles that have guided and kept us till now. Things like praying, reading the Bible, giving, fasting, etc. She would wake up every day at 4am to pray on her own, then wake us up for morning devotion.

Secondly, she is educated and loves education. My mom is responsible for my intelligence. She took out time to teach me Maths and English and even once in secondary school when I complained about Biology she read it and began explaining to me. I was good at Grammar and Oral English in school just because mummy always corrected our grammar and phonetics. While most kids complained about Maths, I loved it so much that I even did Further Maths in senior secondary.

She made sure we prepared for exams before the dates. She would not let me rest until she was sure I had gone through the book from front to back and then back to front. She'd pick up a subject and read it and then begin asking me questions.

Altogether, God has blessed me with a loving, caring, beautiful and godly woman as a mother and I celebrate her today. Mummy, may you see better years and may you not go down the way of all men until you have seen your dreams come to pass. I love you.

Prov31:28 'Her children rise up and call her blessed, her husband also praises her'

A dizain for my mom:

Mom, you're the best
Every single day I'll repeat
And much more you're blest
I can shout in the street
Let 'em know on my tweet

You are my star
You shoot without a scar
A friend, a mother, a wife
And more you are
My mom of life
