Born On September 16th

Today’s topic for SITs’ Back2Blogging is: Write a new post about a woman who inspires you. This topic is so appropriate for the person I want to dedicate this post to.

September 16, another woman gave birth to her. The day the woman decided to give the little girl a name that people might have thought was too much for a tiny baby; a name that means serious, DETERMINED.

As they say, there is so much in a name. She became determined, and she has always been and even now the determination has not died. She never gives up; even when people tell her she is not good enough. Even when her enemies decide to cast shadow on her, she rises up and shines. The blac sign on the eye and swollen lip caused by a man made me swear never to be involved with a person who domestically violate you.

She is the one who showed me how a strong-clever woman acts. She changed the keys of the door and decided to move on in life, leaving behind abusive relationships.

She is the one who woke up in the middle of the night to drive to work and stood in front of a heated machine so that there will always be food on the table. She is the one who worked three different jobs so that all her children will have a better life.

She is the one who made me cry and she the one I made cry due words said at the wrong time. And she the same person that forgot everything and said I love you for first.

She is the one that coils me to reach the sky. The one that said I am her favourite mistake. She is the one who showed me how to be a mother of five and try to please everyone but yourself.

She is the one I am proud gave birth to me. The one I am proud to call MOTHER. The one I am praying God will bless me so that she will be called GRAN-MOM again.

She is the one born on September 16th.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, all my love...
