“This Woman Has Laid Her Life For Us In So Many Ways That Till Now I Wonder “Why Would She”- Gifty Celebrates Her Mother


Given the opportunity, everyone has something to say about their mothers. The stories may be different but one common attribute about them will be sacrifice. Mothers are a definition of sacrifice and no child can repay them enough.

Recalling memories of the past, ex-BBN housemate, Gifty Brian Onyechukwu, popularly called, Gifty celebrates her mother for her doggedness in raising her and her siblings, when she became a widow.

She wrote,

If I’m permitted to celebrate one special person over and over again for the rest of my life, it will be none other person but my MOM. I remember a week after my step dad passed away, my mom was given 2 options(hand over all properties or we give my 2 step siblings to them), all my mom could say was “9months is never 9days”..

few days later my mom handed all properties to them and as little as we all were,we had to start life all over again through the scorching sun; the road was rough but hey we made it through.

This woman has laid her life for us in so many ways that till now i wonder “Why would she”, she’s been the kind of bestfriend that I’ve always wished for since as a little girl, she’s been the reason why i kept holding on strong for so many things happening in my Life, she’s one person that has taught me that “In Life if you listen to the noise in the market,you won’t buy what you wanna buy”.

She lost my Father (my dad) when i was a year old, still lost my step dad when my kid brother was 4years old, got abandoned by family members who saw they were not gaining(money)from us like they used too & above all these, she still held perfectly strong & said “no obstacles will hold me down, life goes on”.

In as much as I’ve been dragging + pleading with her to MARRY AGAIN but no avail, all she keep saying is “i don’t need any man in my life,my kids are enough for me”. I can swear that in my life, i have done some horrible stuffs that I’m not proud off, of which i know a mother shouldn’t forgive her child, yet without any hesitation my mom will cover me up in public no matter what and scold me behind closed doors.

Well, I don’t care if I write too much based on my Mom because it is my page and I’m proud of writing these down. My mom is my weak point,you do her wrong then you’ve gotten to me & at he end you will see the BEAST side of me.

But one thing i will always say is One Love To All. The Widows/Moms All Over The World, i know it’s not easy taking care numbers of kids but trust me, if there is one thing one should be grateful for, it is LIFE.. not everyone is opportuned to Live in this Life.
