Queen Among Women

Tags:

As i flip through my calender, work and school schedules. It hits me tomorrow is the International Women Day and yes i have a hero, heroine, conqueror and queen in my life that i honor with my writings that are pages from the deepest point of my heart. She is Priscah Ingotse Ingutia.

The world is my Oyster so i say today
Who made me ......me?
Who Kept me Alive?
Who didn't flash me out when i was just blood?
Who persevered the cruel hands of death when her spouse died?
Who endured stigma and discrimination for not accepting to be inherited after her husband died?
Who single handedly raised 10 school going children after becoming widowed?

From a minute cell to a fully grown fetus
From a delicate , fragile infant to a toddler
From a sweet girl to a rebel teenager
From a teen single, disturbed mother to a responsible working mother
From the abyss of failure to a pedestal of success. I am a success story,because of you

If i could turn back the hand of time , will i change anything?
Will i want a new mother?

Priscah you nursed my siblings and i
You did not fear getting your hands dirty in the farm
You did not fear disciplining us into the road of success
You challenged status quo after your husband's death
Your open arms took in orphans and vulnerable children into your warm wings
You showed us and especially me BEING A WOMAN IS NOT A CURSE
You are my Hero, Heroine,best friend and wonderful gift God ever gave to me.
Mom , you're Queen among women
Thank you for being my mom
