HBD to my wonderful MOTHER; MRS ANITA ATWAROO DHUWANTEE EDUN.
The ship of my childhood, would have been wrecked for good If it weren’t for an anchor called MOMMY aka MAMA,
Who held on to me when waters were stormy. MAMA, you are a rock star!
Without you in my life I would have never come so far,You are the best mom in the world, I know.
My respect for you, I don’t know how to show
My life has taken shape, all because of your magical touch.
Wish you a happy birthday, I love you very much.
When I was a child,You made sure my birthdays were awesome,I kept expecting cool gifts and parties,Without knowing from where, the money would come. Not once, did you ever say no to anything I asked for, ever.
I can’t imagine how you did all that,As a working hustling mother. Now that I am older and more mature, I look back at those days.
I feel blessed to have grown up under your wings,For you, there can never be enough praise!
Happy birthday MUM!
Even though you’ve been away in Dublin (for over 16 years), it’s amazing how I hear your voice of reason every time I err. And how that chignon of jet black Indian hair loosens anytime you get pissed with us kids. And I must add, all the market women in Tejuosho and Balogun markets miss your bargaining power…”Oyinbo yii ni wahala o”, they would say.
My MFM Prayer Warrior, quit sending me FLAT SHOES…I’ve kinda upgraded my shoe game! If only you knew the kinda shoes I rock now…#RunsOffToHide
And who on earth told you about my stage fall?? You heard that in Dublin?#WideEyed
Motherly Instinct sha!!!!
