This week, I found myself waking up to emotional pains that I wouldn’t explain, the feelings were the ones I had when I had just lost my mom.it’s so hard to describe.
The last time I felt this way was 2016!
The pain was unbearable and I found myself holding back from tearing on several occasion.
This also happened on my way back from the hospital, something must have triggered it because I almost cried in the middle of the road.
Fast forward to visiting my friend Tomi, she asked me a sincere question on how I lost my mom, I didn’t realise this was the first time, I really dug deep into telling someone how I stood by my mom’s side, praying silently and asking God for a miracle.
Until the Doctor gave me the worst news of my entire life,”We Tried Our Very Best, Your Mom IS Gone”.
I must have cried for more than 30 minutes with my friend also crying. Sometimes we need people who we can be vulnerable with and open up about that one thing, that makes our pillows wet at night.
You see, my mom sacrificed her wants for myself and siblings, she sent us to the best school, she was selfless and the best person you could ever come across.
If my mom was alive, she would only want a bottle of perfume, a box of chocolate and she would sing “Sweet mother I no go forget you” a popular Nigerian song we sing for mothers.
So in honour of celebrating my mom on Mother’s day.
I miss you so so much mom, your baby girl is making you so proud!
I hope people who still have a mom, would cherish their mothers and make amend if this is required.
Happy Mother’s Day 2019
