A tribute, to a phenomenal woman, on her day of birth.

 “And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age.” Ruth 4:15

You have been a paragon of strength, in the 23 short years that I’ve known you.

Even when the going gets tough, and the shit hits the fan, you’ve held it together  admirably, with a spine of steel, but a tender heart.

I hope you know how much of an inspiration you are…I hope you never forget.

You’re a phenomenal woman, wonderful mother, supportive sibling and empathetic human being.

You have been our home, the ground beneath our feet and the warmth of love for all the years we’ve known you.

May you continue to fight tirelessly, to pursue your goals relentlessly, to keep building the life you want…

May you continue to radiate love and warmth for all who seek shelter with you.

Most importantly, may the Lord restore your health and vitality that you may live on to enjoy your old age in the comfort of the fruits of your hard work and ours too.

Happy Birthday Amai…you are much loved.

 “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands…” Psalm 91:11

Hi, I'm on a mission to be the best darn blogger south of the Sahara...and yes I know "best" is relative but you get my drift. So far I've won a national award for this blog, and earn my living professional as a writer, that's pretty cool, isn't it?
