I’m sure she’ll totally forget about her birthday until someone mentions it to her OR it will take a trigger from a surprise get–together just like last year to get her to realize that her birthday is today (or tomorrow).
My mum has done so much and sacrificed pretty much everything to help me get to where I am today. I remember a time in 2007 when she was scheduled to undergo a major surgery. I was in a catholic boarding school and had not even the slightest idea of what was going on. She told everyone not to tell ”her twins” because she wanted us to be able to focus on our exams (WAEC) — a true definition of selflessness, thinking of others when most people in the same situation wouldn‘t.
As she told me, while being wheeled into the OR, she closed her eyes and prayed to God. She said, “God if there’s only one reason I should come out of the operating room alive, it should be for me to be able to see my twins graduate from school. God honored her prayer and today, she’s seen my twin sister graduate from college.
Wishing my mum many more years of good health of body and of mind to live to see me not only graduate, but to go on and become the wonderful lady she has steadfastly prayed I become.
Happy birthday mama!!
