Hey Bold Queens,
Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms , expecting moms and mother figures out there.
As we head out to celebrate the special women in our lives today I couldn’t help but highlight my mom and mothers figures in my life .
Flashback to my childhood
Growing up as an only child, with a single parent ,my mom was all I knew .
But like most adolescents who didn’t know any better I gave my mom such a hard time .
Little did I know how much stuff weighed on her back , she was father , bread winner , teacher,motivator,doctor and punisher.
Those punishments or licks as we bajans would say, has molded me into the woman I am today .Giving me that drive to never give up and to always make my mother proud.
My mom , through the years has been a combination of adjectives ,verbs and nouns but to me the words that describe her the best are Beautiful Bajan Super Queen.
Even though you may be miles away and I can’t celebrate this mother’s day with you I feel like I still do.
Your kind spirit and generosity that you so graciously spread ,not only impacted on me, but to the mother figures around me .
So today I not only celebrate my mom but all the single moms ,dads ,aunts , sisters , brothers ,cousins and family friends who stands as someone’s mom or mother figure.
Thanks again to all the Queens who submitted a photo of their moms and themselves which you will see below .
“For everything in this universe, Mother is the beginning. Mother’s voice is the first voice we hear, even before we are born. Mother’s love knows no bounds
It’s far deeper than the deepest oceans; and in my view, that’s the only ocean of unconditional love we’ll ever find in this world.
Holy Book tells us, in Genesis: “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living
I encourage you to cherish your Mother, with love, respect and honor…..that’s the best way to celebrate Mother’s Day.
