Celebrating my dear MAMA and my elder sister

The two greatest women in my life; my sister and my mother. Mama is an iron lady because she has been through thick and thin, but still came out strong. She is the source of my inspiration. Mama whenever I feel so alone, lonely and unsure of what tomorrow has in store for me, my consolation comes from the fact that your love for me is genuine and guaranteed. In you mama i'll always find solace when I need it the most even if I dont need it. Mama you are my pillar, you and sister because you have sacrificed so much for our family that I have no idea how I can repay you and it's only God our creator who will repay you for your selflessness. Sister you stopped living your life for the sake of your siblings for our sake sis you, since we were young you've always stood up for us, to protect us from anyone who wanted to hurt us when mama was away and we were left at the mercy of the world. The most greatest women in my life mama and big sis. Thank you for your unconditional love. May Jehovah bless you abundantly. Love and peace with you i've understood the true meaning of these words. Faith can move mountain and I believe that one day you'll have all that you've ever longed for in abundance. The power of women I see it in the two of you.

They mean the world to me

Love

Siru,

More and more each day I am also overwhelmed by the abundant and selfless love of my mother and sister. Like the powerful women in your life, they sacrifice so much to ensure my physical, emotional and spiritual safety, and to mitigate obstacles the best they can so the doors of opportunity will be open for me. Thank you for sharing about the wonderful women in your life and reminding this community how important it is to reflect and honor those who have sacrificed on our behalf, and with such humility and strength. Gratitude cannot be shared enough. I am now moved to share my appreciation with my own family.

Thank you for sharing,

Lena :-)

Circle of Love

Siru,

Your words capture and reflect so well the deep love and appreciation that your mama, sister and you share for one another. I feel so happy knowing that this abiding love will be with you always and give you strength whenever you need it, wherever you are in the world. I am also very fortunate to have had a loving family to support and guide me, and while they may not still be with me, I take them with me always, as will you.

Your words have touched me. Thank you.
Leslie
