My Mum

Advertisements

A devote,dedicated diligent woman, A resilient, responsible, respectable woman, A calm, confident, caring woman. A lovely, loving ,loyal, woman, From her we have learned and flourished.

With tenderness she nurtured our gifts and passions. Through nudges,rebukes and sometimes tough love she continually pushes us to become the best version of ourselves.

Toughness is her specialty, others would think she feels no pain. Whatever life has thrown her way,she knows the art of shaking it off and matching forward. Her strength is unimaginable. Yet, beneath that toughness is the kindest of heart. Always covering us In prayers.

Prayer watches I learned from her, All those years faithfully keeping the eight watches of prayer. Countless times I have seen her turn off the stove or turn off the TV to say a prayer . My kids, her grandchildren got the pattern and I see them pause in the day to pray as grandma taught them.

Today, is your birthday Mum. I thank God for you. He chose for me and my siblings the best mum to bring us forth and nurture us. With long live may he satisfy you. And even in coming years may you continue to bear fruits.

Love you Mama @Susan Maina.

I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. Sometimes I wonder, 'if I'd become everything I wanted as a girl, Would I be better than this or caught up in a different whirl?' I close my eyes and hear the voices of those who look up to me, The hopeful eyes in their pictures.....I think I can see what they see, I want to wake up one morning and see the people I care about happy. I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. I pretend I'm not hurt even when I am, 'Cause when fighting ain't an option,the least we can do is keep calm. There're times when I feel terribly overwhelmed, But bless everything through which I've helmed, There's been God, there's been you, to pull me through. I oft'n worry that the things I so believe in may not be true, And you can trust me to cry at the idea of failing in what I set out to do. I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. I understand that it's hard to please everyone, But if I could, there's nothing I'd want more than to see a smile on the face of every man. I believe and so say everyone deserves a second chance, I judge not...at least never at first glance. I dream of the day when I can look at my life and say 'this is where I wanted to be. I have, I do, I always will try the best in everyone to see, And I hope at the end of my life, I will not have left a trail of broken hearts behind me.
