It’s been a while since I blogged.I had been taken back by the way life can sometimes waylay oneself with little theatrics until you happen to meet that number one fan who loves your work and everything comes back to make sense, talents are meant to be shared. As I write, I can only thank God for the graces and mercies I have felt from him the last few months. Everything I value was put to test but that is not what am here to share with you tonight.I am simply here to comfort all mothers out there who make it real, as the world celebrate Mother’s Day there are so many stories each mother could share that portrays a woman as an important pillar in the Society.
The other day my 6 year old Daughter TK and I went for shopping and suddenly she was not behind me as I picked items off the shelves, I nervously turned around only to find her putting something in her mouth, I rushed back and asked her in firm voice to spit it out. It was a chewing gum she had picked from the floor, arrrrg…I was getting impatient with her
In a calm voice she asked me, “Why Mom?”
“It’s because you picked from the ground, it’s dirty and you don’t know where it’s been from.”
“But mom how comes you know everything?”
I thought quickly and said “All Moms know stuff. You have to pass mom’s test or they will not let you be a Mom”
We walked in silence for few minutes as she helped me push the trolley, I could see she was in some deep thought then she said,
“Ooh I get it, if you don’t pass the Mom’s test you become a dad?”
“Exactly”, I said.
I laughed the rest of the way home, yes, it’s a joyful and blessed feeling to raise children. Mark 10:14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL THE WOMEN IN THE WORLD!
