THE UNPRECEDENTED CARE AND AFFECTION OF A GOOD MOTHER:BY NDJP










YOU SHOULD NOT WAIT ONLY FOR THE MOTHER'S DAY TO COME FOR YOU TO SHOW YOUR MOTHER CARE AND LOVE; SHE NEVER WAITED TILL YOU HAVE BEEN BORN TO START CARING FOR YOU ---SHE STARTED EVEN WHILST YOUR STILL IN THE WOMB. SHE DESERVES MORE CARE THAN YOU MAY BE THINKING OF; MY DEAR, DON'T WAIT WHEN YOU HAVE MADE MILLIONS, BUILT MANSIONS, AND BOUGHT THE LATEST CARS BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO SHOW LOVE TO YOUR MOTHER. EVEN YOUR ENDEARING WORDS ARE ENOUGH TO PUT SMILES ON HER BEAUTIFUL FACE AND TO FILL HER HEART WITH PROFUSE JOY. CALL HER DAILY AND WHISPER "I LOVE YOU" ON HER EAR WITH A CARING TONE; SHE WILL UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE GIVING THE ONE YOU HAVE AT THE MOMENT, HOW MUCH MORE WHEN YOU WILL MAKE IT IN LIFE. THE BLESSINGS OF A GOOD MOTHER ARE INDISPENSABLE.

IF YOUR OWN MOTHER IS STILL ALIVE, MY DEAR YOU'RE VERY LUCKY. I MYSELF NEVER WAIT AGAIN FOR MOTHER'S DAY TO COME; I NOW LOOK UP TO 'ALL SOULS' DAY TO PRAY SPECIALLY FOR THE PEACEFUL RESTING OF THE SOUL OF MY MOTHER: THE BODY OF THE WONDERFUL WOMAN WHO CARRIED ME IN HER WOMB FOR NINE MONTHS ---ALL THE COMPLICATIONS NOTWITHSTANDING--- IS NOW DECAYING IN HER TOMB. THOUGH THEN I HATED THE CONDITION WE WERE LIVING UNDER, BUT I NEVER HATED YOU REALIZING IT WAS NOT YOUR FAULT BECAUSE YOU WERE WORKING ASSIDUOUSLY AND UNDAUNTEDLY TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU LAST BORN HAPPY. WHEREVER YOU ARE, I KNOW YOUR SPIRIT IS NOT DEAD, AT LEAST YOU'LL ALWAYS FEEL MY MOODY SOUL EACH TIME I REMEMBER THAT YOU'RE NO MORE; AND I BELIEVE THERE IS NOTHING I WOULD WRITE WITH WORDS TO SHOW YOU LOVE ON PAR WITH THAT YOU SHOWED ME.

I CAN STILL REMEMBER VIVIDLY MY PRAYER THEN: THAT I WOULD DIE AND MY OWN LIFE BE ADDED TO THAT OF MY MOM SO THAT SHE WOULD LIVE LONGER AND OLDER TILL MY SIBLINGS WOULD MAKE IT; THAT I WOULD BE USED AS A SACRIFICIAL LAMB FOR OPEN DOORS AND GREATNESS IN MY FAMILY; THEN, I WOULD GO TO BED PRAYING THAT BY DAWN, GOD WOULD HAVE GRANTED MY PRAYER REQUEST BY TAKING MY VERY PRECIOUS LIFE. I NEVER EVEN KNEW THAT GOD WAS PLANNING THE OPPOSITE OF MY INTENTION ---I PLANNED BUT GOD DECIDED. I KNOW YOU MAY NOT BELIEVE I DID THAT; MY DEAR, I DID SO, AND GOD KNEW I DID THAT JUST TO MAKE SURE MY MOM WOULD ENJOY THE FRUITS OF HER LABOURS. IT'S REALLY LACHRYMOSE REMEMBERING ALL THESE INCIDENTS, BUT I BELIEVE THAT EVERY SUCCESSFUL LIFE HAS STORIES TO TOLD ABOUT IT.

DEAR SWEET MOM, I WILL FOREVER REMEMBER YOUR LOVE AND CARE FOR ME, THOUGH YOU'RE LIVING NO MORE ---YOUR MEMORIES WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY MIND--- I LOVE YOU BUT GOD LOVES YOU THE MOST; THOUGH YOUR BODY IS DEAD AND ENTOMBED, YOU SPIRIT STILL LIVES AROUND YOUR CHILDREN. YOUR MEMORIES CANNOT BE EFFACED FROM MY MIND, AND I WILL ENDEAVOUR TO LIVE OUT THE GOOD LEGACIES YOU HAVE LEFT BEHIND. MOM, IN PROFUSE TEARS, I SAY "I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!"

 MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE OF THE LORD, TILL MEET AGAIN ON THE LAST DAY, AMEN!

LOVE FROM YOUR LAST CHILD!
