Yo mama, it's your birthday

Share
A strong woman
that's who you are
you have been through the fire
and the flood
and yet you have remained standing
steadfast
trusting in the Lord
for His promises never fail

A beautiful woman
that's who you are
People see you and ask
"Is that your sister?"
I frown, you smile
and we both say no
you never forget to remind them
that I'm not even your first

A funny woman
that's who you are
we always sing
"man worry, man die
man no worry, man die
so why worry"
as we burst out laughing
even when the news is not so good

An intuitive woman
that's who you are
you understand
my smile
my frown
my silence
you see beyond the words from my lips
to my heart

So today, mamaG I celebrate you. June 22nd 1958..the Lord sent one of his special ones to earth. I thank Him for preserving you, for giving you the strength to stand through all that life has thrown at you. I thank Him because I know you haven't seen anything yet. He said there shall be more glory in your latter days. He will surely take you to the place that He has shown you in Jesus name. You are blessed.

So yummy grammy, keep on rocking!

MamaG...na u biko!
