PRIMROSE OBATA DODO’S EMOTIONAL TRIBUTE TO MUM AS SHE’S BEING LAID TO REST….

I can never forget that faithful Sunday morning Bakore called me to say “Majie is gone passed” and I asked to where? And he replied to be with the Lord and I quietly responded with, it is well I give God all the glory, let me call and check on my siblings before going  straight to church to lead my choir in praise and worship…..

I tried so hard to be strong listening to people say “how come you look so normal sister Primrose, no signs of distress on your face just you normal cheerful self if only they kneI can never forget that faithful Sunday morning Bakore called me to say “Majie is gone passed” and I asked to where? And he replied to be with the Lord and I quietly responded with it is well I give God all the glory, let me call and check on my siblings before going  straight to church to lead my choir in praise and worship. I tried so hard to be strong listening to people say how come you look so normal sister Primrose, no sign of distress on your face, just your normal cheerful self.  if only they knew how I felt inside but my belief in God and his grace kept me singing those songs without any sign of the news I got about my mum’s death that happen that same morning.

One part of me wanted to ask God why take her? but the Holy Spirit kept saying Primmy, you can’t question God just give him praise.
“Majie you were so loved  and I sincerely wished you could wake up and talk to me and ask me questions about the bible or just hear me preach the word and you go MAMA J my pastor daughter have they finally ordained you? Ha ha ha ha 

When challenges come I run to God before running to you’ Nwachie and God speaks to me through you with those ever soothing words “e go better mama J, I know you to be a very strong woman remember the God you serve, don’t worry I am praying for you.” Who do I run to now after God ,Nwachie? Who would  I chat with on the phone for  one hour? Why did you decide to go now? You were my best friend, confidant, gist partner and adviser .Nwachie, I have never seen you angry or shouted at anyone, you taught me to be calm, you were so understanding and accommodating to me and my siblings even when we didn’t meet up to you expectations you never frowned or shouted instead you showed us, love. You were a gift and a treasure.  

Mummy,  I will never forget you. Saying my goodbye is  truly hard but I just have to do it. 
Please God take care of her for us till we meet to part no more, I promise I will always remember her and be grateful for the sacrifices she made. 

Love you mummy dearest – POD
