Cheers to all the awesome, independent and courageous mother out there.
You deserve recognition for every bit of love, kindness, tenderness and all other humane characteristics you possess. Indeed, it is true when they say that a mother’s love is unconditional.
You were a guiding light in times of our troubles. You never left and you have always lightened up the dark alleys we took in our lives.
You were a like a sturdy tree that stood firm in the ground even whilst you were in deep peril; giving us shade, making life more bearable as challenging times test us.
You were a sturdy rock that remained calm and kept everyone together. You have withstood all the impediments that came our way.
You were a charm for all good things in life. Those words of optimism attracted good luck.
You were our best cheerleaders. You always believe and never doubt. Your words of encouragement gave us the courage to pursue greater things in life.
You were the wisest teacher, full of nuggets of wisdom from your seemingly challenging yet beautiful experience.
You were a tigress in disguise, ready to protect your cub and the strike at any given moment.
You were a blessing from up above. A beautiful angel who descended from the great heavens.
You were and always will be all of those things and for that I am grateful.
You truly are a gift. A gift that needs to be treasured, loved, and honoured.
Having said all these things, Ma, this one’s for you! I will always love you and I am genuinely grateful that the Lord has given me an amazing woman to look up to and have given me the honour to call someone as amazing as you as my mother.
Distance may have separated us but in my heart and in yours I know that we’ll always be as close as we can be. This undying love we have as a mother and child will always conquer hundreds or even thousands of miles. It will always overcome overwhelming heights of hurdle.
For your love and mine are both and one of the same thing and that is unconditional.
I will never get tired of saying this, I am forever indebted to you and I will always love you, Ma!
