No One Like Mother. (Tiwa Savage's Beautiful Message To Mum).




Tiwa Savage shared this beautiful message to her mum as she adds another year, on social media and talks particularly about being bullied as a teenager for being black, skinny and having a Nigerian accent. 



“During my high school days I was bullied for several years, I would get jumped on the bus, head flushed down the toilet and so on, it got so bad that I did something drastic and life threatening because I was so depressed.

My mother was called to school on several occasions and each time she came she would ask to see the other students bullying me and would always pray for us all. Of course they would joke and laugh but my mother was always so calm and reserved and she would take me home, cook me Naija food (we were living in London at the time) and she would make me realize how loved I was and how rich my culture is, how beautiful I am being a Nigerian girl (I was bullied for being African, skinny, dark and I had a strong naija accent) what my mother didn’t do was fight, shout or argue with the other girls or their parents (who were at times very rude and disrespectful), instead she showered me with love and reminded me where I was from.

One of the many reasons why she is my hero, my role model, biggest inspiration, my best friend, my mummy @celiasavage I celebrate you today on your birthday. Anyone that has met you has experience what a calm, shy, gentle but very hip mummy you are.

The only doromegasupermummy on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook , keek etc lol I love you mummy, I love you with my soul. Thinking of what you have done for me brings tears to my eyes. I only pray I can be half the mother you are to me to my children. I prayed to God this morning to grant us a couple more forevers. Happy Birthday Sexy mama”

...***...***...


Something about messages to mothers really warm my hearts. The truth is no mother is perfect, our mothers are all flawed women but to us, for us, they are gods here on earth; our comforters, solace, advisors, guardian angels, friends, teachers, providers and confidants. 

Yet I realize that not everyone is so fortunate to have such good relationships with their mothers, or such good mothers. 
    Someone I know dumped her two children in the village some four years ago just after her hubby died because her boo said he didn't want to see them. In those four years she has enquired of them only twice and has replaced them with other children for this boo of hers. Now that is not a mother. 
    A friend of mine who had been repeatedly abused sexually since age 4 for years by an uncle who lived with them reported this to her "mother". The woman beat her severely and called her a liar. Even when she knew without a doubt that her daughter was telling the truth, she told the little girl never to speak about it and thus, she endured two more years of sex with her uncle, under the same roof with her mum. Now that's not a mother. 
      I know of people who have no relationships whatsoever with their mums, some do but only to the extent that "oh this is the woman who birthed me, I guess I have to acknowledge that". 

So I don't take (the relationship with) my mum for granted and when I read words like Tiwa's and hear of other amazing mums out there I always get this frantic urge to make a toast to all the good MOTHERS out there. 

HBD Mrs Savage.

  2. My Mom? My Mom?? My Mom??? #chuckles

    No words mehn. Not even if I add all the Webster, Longman, Oxford or Cambridge dictionaries together will I find words to describe who/what my Momma is to me & what I Feel for Her!
    But in a nutshell, She's My AIR!!!

  5. My mum was 29 and very beautiful (tall, slim, light-skinned she still is) when she lost my dad. Some years later, she met this wealthy man who wanted to marry her but wanted nothing to do with us the children. My mum chose us and poverty. Till date, she tells whoever cares to listen that she doesn't regret her action. Yes, she's flawed just like I am too but I appreciate her being my mother and I love her so much. In fact, she's one of the reasons I ask God for riches so I can do for her all she gave up when she chose us over wealth.

    1. F I honestly cannot understand it. In this one's case the man isn't wealthy, not even remotely rich. She just wanted him to marry her that she didn't mind sending them to her late husband's village and dumping them there. Then she got her family to return the bride price so that she will have absolutely nothing tying her to the family. Her son is barely 12 but has been turned into the village slave and has already been introduced to alcohol and violence. The whole thing tires me.
      Yet there are women crying to God everyday for children.

    2. So sad! Makes absolutely no sense. The new husband himself should worry because the woman could do same to the children she bore for him if the situation arises. I really pity her future.

  9. My mum is a gift I open everyday, words cannot describe what she means to me. What about the sacrifices she's made for me. That woman is a superwoman she's worth more than gold to me

  10. My mother is my rock! yes we butt heads but she knows I love her. I don't know how my life would have turned out if she was non-existent.

  11. I love my mother, and deservedly so, so much that I can't stand her even being ill. It makes me irritable and sad.
    The love is so much I'm shy and scared to show her all of it.
    Heaven knows I'd choose to die than her. I know that's not what it should be, but I can't imagine her not being with us again.
    She's a blessing to everyone.
    It was my mum the author saw in a vision and wrote Proverbs 31...I'm not kidding.

  13. "GOD is so busy HE sends a sidekick to watch over me".
    Words are never enough to describe a great mother. Where do want to start? Or end? They're truly gods to us. Here's to all MOTHERS reading this, to all whose mums are still with them, to all who have lost theirs(extremely painful, and I pray this moment that GOD remains your comforter), and to all intending mothers. Be Blessed

  14. Everything I am I owe to God and my mom. There's no adequate word to describe her sacrificial love, wisdom and strength. I love her so much and if I had the choice to make, I will chose her as my mother over and over again

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
