From my earliest memories, you have been the one that soothes all my aches, the one that answers most of my questions and the one who taught me practically everything I know. You taught me how to cook, taught me to give, taught me to fear the Lord, taught me to love, to forgive.You juggle five children, numerous relatives plus a demanding career and you make it look so easy when in actual fact its not.
Somewhere along this road called life, my siblings and I have erred but in a way that is true to you, you choose to admonish in love and sincere objectivity and move on rather than dwell on our short comings. The best cook I know, cooking for your children is a delight for you. My mum will wake up on a Saturday morning when she should be sleeping after enduring a hard week at work and cook up a storm! The smile your face when you watch us eat is epic! and after all that cooking, you will barely eat so I am guessing its because somehow just watching us eat, fills you up.
Mother, father, best friend, confidant, special adviser, stylist, road map,(my mum knows everywhere in this Lagos!) sister, consultant, chef, prayer champion, these are just a few of the things that make you so unique…
I hope I can be to my kids the kind of mother you are to me, I love you and I celebrate you today and I will for the rest of my life.
