Its women’s day today and while it’s almost end of day, I wouldn’t let It pass without celebrating the first 6 great women God put in my life; my Mum and my 5 awesome baabas who love and spoil me to bits.
Mummy is the glue that holds us together. She has a way of coordinating everyone’s business right in her chair. Then she also knows how to make each of us feel like her absolute favorite. I can swear to you that from her actions, I am certain I am her favorite child; – but so can each of the other 6!!
I feel like the Proverbs 31 woman is an exaggeration; I even don’t like her most of the times cause I mean she is too much but when I think about my mum, I would say King Solomon first met her before writing the chapter!!
Patricia is my second Mum. This girl takes the big sister thing to another level. She even has a mark of her love for me on her forehead which she got on one fateful day when a cow attacked her while carrying me on her back (meanwhile I was an old baby🙈🙈). Her care sometimes is even embarrassing; she carries an extra sweater and shoes for me in case she suspects we will be in the same place. ¾ of my wardrobe is her doing!!! In case you are wondering, I am 28 years old and married!!
Druscilla is the spiritual guru at home. When I learnt about rapture for the first time, she was my mark; anytime I looked for her around the house and couldn’t find her I suspected I had been left behind. She lived the gospel so well that she didn’t have to tell you she was a Christian. She monitored my readings lest I read bad things!!! Also, Dru has a ready joke for every moment. Even in scary moments, she will come up with something funny that will immediately lift your spirits.
Darcy is the sound of reason at home. She has a solution for every problem. She will do whatever is in her power to see everyone happy and well taken care of. Her generosity knows no bounds!!! Darcy is, or rather was my look alike (😉😉)
Eseri has a heart of a child; the very heart that Christ encourages all of us to have. She is so honest and free spirited. She has one of the most teachable spirits I have ever seen. She is also very brilliant yet humble. She was my playmate while growing up.
Anne is my confidant. We have talked about close to everything in our lives. Also, she is one of the most enterprising and hard working women I know; she took on mum’s traits the most. When present, I can lay back and relax knowing she has everything under control.
All these women have shaped me in more ways than I can express; they have loved me unconditionally and groomed me into the person I am today. For this I will forever be grateful!!
Happy women’s day.
