Women's Issue - Phenomenal Woman 1

I have done quite a number of women's issue posts since i started blogging and i realise that a lot of them deal with painful aspects of womanhood worldwide. However, it isnt all bad. There is so much to be celebrated about womanhood. It is in this vein that i am starting the Phenomenal Woman series. To profile women that have done great things in my book. Even if i dont like them or agree with them,they have my admiration.

It wasnt even a challenge to think about who the first woman to be profiled should be....

I am starting off with my mom.....

Who else has had a huge impact on the woman that i am today? My mom is superwoman and she is totally amazing. She is beautiful - i mean physically. She is stunning. Doesnt look a day over 30. Her skin is soooo soft and flawless. I am incorporating her beauty routine. I can only pray that i look like her when i am her age. Her sense of style - impeccable. She is definitely more adventurous in terms of colors than i am but she is all together. Very trendy mama too. LOL.

On the inside, my mother is one in a million. A no nonsense teddy bear. A prayer warrior. A chef extrodinaire. My yoruba teacher. My Koffi Olomide tutor. My friend, my verbal sparring partner when we do our fight thing.

My mother is totally amazing and there are simply no words to explain the dynamics of our relationship. \We love hard and we fight hard and i would take anything for her, do anything for her because she is my number 1 fan.....

Much love!

Let's shout all the mother's all over the world for loving us unconditionally even when we steal and lose their expensive jewelry.
