Celebrating Motherhood

Celebrating Motherhood

Kudos to all our mothers and younger mothers out there.

I can truly say a big well done, because I know what it is like being a mother.

A mother of one child is doing a great job not to talk of mother of two, three, four, five, six, seven etc.

We just finished celebrating the Mothers’ Day and just in case you were not celebrated, this is just my own way of filling in the gap for you.

I want to personally celebrate you. Including all mothers-to-be and all waiting mothers. You will son carry your bundle of joy!

Mothers have a lot of fears, agitations, worries and most times it is for the children, the home and the husband.

Some of us weather the storms, pass through hell and high waters all in an attempt to be there for our family.

Some women pass through different kind of abuses, sexual, verbal, psychological and other forms of abuse.

Others don’t get the needed support from their husbands, who treat them like ‘no good’ just because they have some weaknesses or ailments.

The African woman suffers a great deal in the hands of harsh economic conditions.

Every woman out there, you are celebrated for giving the womb that bears another life.

Thanks for the changes you had to endure, you endured the pain of child birth as you pushed the birth of a life.

You cared and nurtured your young one with much tenderness.

You breast feed your baby whether it is convenient or not.

You backed your child even when your back aches.

You are doing a great job, mothers.

You are doing excellently well and I want to celebrate you.

God bless you for all your efforts, your good will, good thoughts, and your good actions that only heaven recognize.

May heaven send you help out of God’s holy temple and may He send reinforcement to you in Jesus name.

May God shield you from harm and surround you with on time help.

You are doing very well, mothers and I celebrate you, I celebrate your hard work.

Please get support especially emotional and physical support from other godly women, family and other girl friends.

Don’t stay alone because you are not alone in the motherhood race.

We all feel similar emotions and do understand your pain.

Not for pity parties but to hold you up together in prayers.


And to our waiting lovely mothers to be, we wait patiently for you to join the club.

We are excitingly expecting you, with your babies in your arms.

I pray for you from my heart that you will receive the needed help to conceive and carry your pregnancy to full term in Jesus name.

God bless your marriage
