Letter To My Mother….

Dear Mom,

Where do I start

Words are inadequate to describe you

The goodness of your heart is unfathomable

I know there were times I broke your heart

Shoved your care away

But don’t hold my teenage syndrome against me

I’m sorry for the times I didnt join you in the kitchen

I was playing Need For Speed like a spoilt brat

I’m sorry for the times I gave you the silent treatment

My recent misdemeanor has caused you a lot of pain

But somewhere, somehow you still forgave me

Dear mom,

Do you know I love you?

Nobody else loves you like I do

Okay, maybe Dad and my brothers and sisters

But I love you immeasurably

Your virtues are limitless

And you never run out of encouraging words to give

Four grandchildren and Six children

Is a great achievement

And more are still coming your way

You never get tired of taking care of others

Loving wife

Caring mother

Blessed grandmother

Good friend

And worthy sister

Dear mom,

I know I’m a little unsure about the future

But if there’s anything I know

Is that I want to be like you when I grow up.

Just like you.

I love you mommy.

Dedicated to Lady Bridget .A. Edoro (KSM)


Random Person: ‘Hey Mae, Do you want to go sky diving without parachutes with me?… Pleeaaseee!!’

My thoughts: ‘Oh heck no! Why would I want to go risk my life with you?! There’s no way I’m doing that!.’

My reply: ‘Oh okay…cool!’

That right there is my greatest flaw!. I cannot say ‘No’!. The bright side is me trying a lot of things and getting to have lots of friends that like me because I do things with them, but on the other hand, being the ‘Yes’ girl has brought me a lot of awkward moments, sticky situations and thrown me more than my fair share of troubles!!.

I want to learn to say ‘No!’


………Ode to 2012

Time passes while we fret its passing

The memories are slipping from our grasp

Yet we hold on to things yet to come

The pictures of the days gone by

Snapshots gathered and lost in 365 days

They show proof of my troubled teenagehood

My life changed so quickly out of the blue

I wish I could erase the horrid times

But no, I wish for an everlasting glow of the past

All of it

Its radiance is futuristic

So I’m locking the moments in a time capsule


A cup of all the tears I shed

They were the outbursts of my heart

A collage of all my smiles

The ones I smiled with my eyes

A scoop from all the vomit my little nieces deposited on me

I’ve never been more honoured

The funny sound of my one year old nephew trying to pronounce my name

I love him till eternity

The sediments of spit that splashed out of our laughter

Happiest moments were not complete without my sister

The stern echo of my father’s voice

‘Your life is in your hands’

A printed copy of my transcript from Madonna University

I finally broke out of limitations

A handful of sand from my sojourn of seeking perfection

I found something better…. Jesus


These memories will loom above me

And the emotions will come flooding back when I need them

Though I still fear..

Will time consume memories like a raging fire?

That is uncertain

But what is more uncertain than the future?

Will I remain a cage of doubt and unanswered questions?

Alas I must return to life

And continue my story

So that new memories are made

And I’ll keep more time capsules…


The daily prompt for yesterday was Time capsule. A post about the memories of 2012 you’d like to store in a time capsule. I’m obviously 24hours late with the prompt but wareva! I just love the topic. Maybe you should write yours. Its a chance to reflect on the ending year.
