its been 365 days since you departed this world.

Hajia Hassana Ibrahim A Mother and A Teacher to all

Dear mama

you wouldn’t believe what I’m goin’ through
But still I got my head up just like I promised you.
Ever since you left your baby boy has been dealing with life’s issues especially the project you encouraged me to start and supported  financially.

The first question you asked me anytime we met while you were on admission in the hospital was “Have you completed your project?” . Am proud to report to you that the project is Ninety percent completed and will be completed very soon insha Allah. Even in death you played a critical role in this project.

Its a reality of life that loosing a mother or a child is the worst news a person can get. Mine came 31st of October 2019 by 12.00 noon sitting in my office when my sister called to tell me about the demise of my beloved mother Malama(as we fondly call her which translates to Female teacher in hausa because of her profession as a teacher) .

I’m holding my head up high
reaching for the sky, focused on the plan
Using my pen to make a difference. I  understand For a woman it ain’t easy trying to raise a man.when I was low as a teen you were there for me And never left me alone because you cared for me. I  always depended on my mama And when it seems that things were hopeless You said the words that got me back in focus. When I was sick as a little kid To keep me happy there’s no limit to the things you did, all my childhood memories Are full of all the sweet things you did for me And even though I acted naughty I gotta thank the Lord that you made me .There are no words that can express how I feel You never kept a secret, and always made me face reality.  I appreciate, how you raised me And all the extra love that you gave me.

May Allah grant you eternal rest in Janna mum. We miss you so much
