Inspired by one of my favorite bloggers LondonBuki, this is my ninth Mummy Sunday post!!! I dedicate it to all those who believe in us… with your wings, we can fly.
My mother had a dream of going to
My mom did everything in her power to convince her parents otherwise… studied harder, helped out around the house more, anything to prove how ‘disciplined’ she was…
An opportunity came through after her high school education and they decided to let her follow her dream… They’d send her to
Numerous friends and family members objected… because she was female and would only study to benefit her future husband.
A few guys were asking for her hand in marriage at the time but she wouldn’t even consider it because she had decided that nothing would keep her from her “British Dream”.
Her parents were ridiculed for allowing her to reject such ‘wealthy suitors’…
It’s been over two decades, but her parents have never once regretted that decision.
She proved to them that anything a male can do… a female can do just as well
So the marriage thing with Papa Overwhelmed never worked out… but she has two amazing children to show for it
She’s made sure her parents are in comfort for the rest of their natural lives… how’s that for a ‘female’?
I just wanted to send a big shoutout to my Grandpa… the old-school feminist.
Happy Wedding Anniversary Papa Nnukwu
