Today is my mom’s day of joy.
its a very special day for her because it reminds her of a number of things. Today, she sees how much of a jajja she has become.
Also, she is reminded of the fact that she had a husband, and although, i never go to know him much, am sure she did, in every sense of the word!
Today she is reminded, that there is more to life than having fun, and that he who finds a wife, finds a good thing.
Am sure she is also reminded of nappies, and cotton mattresses, of boarding school and campus halls, of the struggle to manhood, and the patience thereof.
Am sure she is happily reminded that trees don’t make family, but love nurtures it.
Today, my mom has reason to smile, its the day her son was born.
