Sitting down quietly all by myself and smiling as the events of the last few days flashes across my mind.
Hmmm, indeed, I am a mother. That one na known and undisputed fact. The real gist of this story is what actually transpired on the said days.
My Lil Princess was down with malaria ,( she is much better now, we thank God for his mercies). But on those night she had this malaria, I became a 'Watch Mum'! I sat on those night as she battled and fought whatever forces were disturbing her in her dreams
I understand it but I was there, wiping the heavy sweat off forehead. The first 2 nights were something else. The fever was severe. I prayed, Lord help her fight and win. My Lil Princess is a strong girl and very pretty too, lol.
Na on those nights I come dey practice my nursery rhyme ' My mother, who sat and watched my infant head.....'. It easy but I won at last. How so true! The beauty of being a mother, whether single or not. It is however because of these little ones that we are called parents.
I am still enjoying this thought all by myself. Do u share in with me?
