A tribute to Mdm Jovita Adon

Mother's day again! i'm really proud to be a mum myself. Never thought that i would be one cos long time ago i was not in favour of the idea of me getting married and giving birth. But, look at me, a mother of 3! And no regrets! Loving each moment with the kids though they sometimes make me screams and shouts but, i guess that's a part of being a mother. The rest is brilliant.

For my mum, Dairah@Jovita Adon. She's my super mom.

Really worked hard and took care of us with love and patience. Raising 9 children is not easy. I can emphatise with her now, (being a mum, myself). I'm really grateful that she resigned from being a teacher long time ago just to look after us full time! Now, she's still strong and still able to move around, planting paddy and flowers (which i failed) and she also takes care of my 3 kids in the morning when i go to work! So for being a supermum i would like to award her this:

for you are one great mother.

And also a poem for you:
Before I was myself you made me.

Before I was myself you made me, me
With love and patience, discipline and tears,
Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

Allowing me to sail upon my sea,
Though well within the headlands of your fears.
Before I was myself you made me, me

With dreams enough of what I was to be
And hopes that would be sculpted by the years,
Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

Relinquishing your powers gradually
To let me shape myself among my peers.
Before I was myself you made me, me,

And being good and wise, you gracefully
As dancers when the last sweet cadence nears
Bit by bit stepped back to set me free.

For love inspires learning naturally:
The mind assents to what the heart reveres.
And so it was through love you made me, me
By slowly stepping back to set me free.

I love you mum. Muuuaaaahhhhh!!!
