Something about my Mother

Updated on September 13, 2015

We grew up knowing her as Father, she was always there for us and made sure that we got almost everything we ever asked. She was the Mother and the Father, she was our everything. There was no day she failed to take us to school by herself, Mother was the foundation of our lives.

I was only three and i knew that there was no Daddy around but she occupied the space, the vacuum created by our Father's demise affected us just because we never felt the touch of a Father but for his love, our Mother balanced it and every other thing.

There were times when the road was rough

But she walked the rain to feed us

She rode us daily to church

Something about my Mother

She was never tied

She gave us the best

She had no limit

To be a mother is a task

She ran a small business

She made beautiful dresses

Our future was guaranteed

Because she stood firm for us

I was 14 years when suitors began coming for me but my Mother refused giving me out despite the challenges, she wanted to give me one life insurance which is better than marriage; Education. She knew that i won't get it if she give me out, she wanted a medical doctor and also a lawyer, she watched us and as of my kid brother, he understood.

It was a journey we walked as family because she taught us moral and never deprived us one other good thing; Religion. She read the Bible continuously and even while sowing new dresses, there was always a verse from the Bible to keep us strong so most nights when there was no food,we already understood that Man does not survive by bread alone.

Sweet mother, you are the light in us

Words are not enough to thank you

You made lots of kept promises

Mother you never broke your words

Something about my Mother

Something about my Mother

You are the greatest love

You never forget to say you care

You never let us down

Mother you are our aspirator

What else will i say about you?

Well, this thing about my mother is that something about my mother that makes me feel on top of the world is that Barrister Chris my younger brother calls her sweet while i call her Jewel. She looked at me on my graduation day and said this to me

- Grace, now that you have graduated from the medical school, your duty is to save lives but there is one person you really have to save all your life.

I saw the seriousness in her,she has never talked to me that way my entire life so out of curiosity, i asked her who this person is and this was what she said...

-Daughter, i have gotten a pretty lady out from my young shy daughter, your Father would be proud of you watching down from heaven so your husband to be is the person you should try to save all your life.

My mother taught me so many things and above all to be a good woman.
