I love my mama!

My Mama n I at the Airport.

A mama’s love!


Aint nothing in this world compared to a mama – a godly mama.

After five years, i got to eat my mama’s food again – and yea, aint no food in the whole wide world sweeter than a mama’s food.
the salt in it is the standard for all other foods.
Be it pepperish, it be for a reason.

A mama’s hug is like a blanket in a cold morning
A mama’s kiss is like the kiss of a thousand angels
A mama’s love is more than that of a thousand lovers.

A godly mama loves you with or without your billions.

lets not talk of how she carried you nine months, avoiding all balls just to make sure you are nicely delivered.
or how she cared for you when you didnt know your right from your left.
she took the blame so that you’ll not be put to shame.

oh yea, now she’s of another generation
“she doesn’t understand you”, you say even though it is you who do not understand yourself – yet
you forget that:
before that Harvard degree or that Kremlin Diplom, you had a mama.
Before that Bangkok placement or that Delhi posting, you had a mama.
Before that Wall Street salary or that Senatorial allowance, you had a mama.

so don’t go chasing billions and forget you got a mama!

she prays for you when you are busy playing with the world
she thinks of you when you are busy thinking of a girl
she loves you even when you no longer regard her

she believes that one day you’ll make her smile again
that one day you’ll return the hugs she gave you
that one day she’ll proudly tell your story to her friends
…That day is TODAY!


I love my mama!!

    Nice write up buddy! The influence/roles of mothers cannot be overemphasized. Beyond the formative years of a child where she shapens his/her character, she constantly ensures that none of her kids go astray or learn from life the hard way. Her joy is in the rising/progress of her kids. Glad, we are a generation that love our mamas because it wounds my spirit when I see what obtains in the west – children just dump their parents at their old age in some caring homes…Not too cool in my opinion…A second set of kids that devastate me are the adamant ones especially to parents…Like a man of God puts it…I have never seen a man that disobeys parents that comes under the full blessings of God….so, no matter your age, education, class or creed, u ve gota respect then as long as they live. I love u mama…and forever will!
