It feels good to be participating in this contest about our mum and I'm happy to be sharing my entry with you guys because mothers are a mystery in every ramification.
Stayed tuned and read on till the end.
Who Is My Mum?
My First Love
My mum is a disciplinarian who is god-fearing and a hard-working. Her name is M.P Ekpenyong and she hails from Akwa Ibom state. she as well married from Akwa Ibom state which is where my dad is from and so far they both have 4 kids. I am the first of them and so far I am grateful for having such a lovely mother. She is carrying, loving, strong willed and most of it all is that she is over protective. She is a woman that rarely believe in wasting time on anything that is not beneficial, so I grew up know her routine to be like work, church then market and being at home. Despite every disappointment I may have caused in the past, she still loves me non-stop.

What My Mum Does
My mum is currently retired but before then, she was working as a Sport Psychologist (Sports Medical Nurse) in National Sports Commission. She retired 3 months ago in September and also launched a book she had been working on for couple of years now. My lovely mum is currently engaging herself with networking business and also getting her way into the world of cryptocurrency gradually. She also attends to patients in the pharmacy that my dad runs, so that keeps her busy with what she has been used to.
Special sacrifices My Mum Have Made
Mothers are the most vulnerable and also the strongest when it comes to sacrifices, they rather not eat just to see their kids smile in satisfaction. My mum is not an exception and has gone extra miles for myself and the family as a whole. I would list a few below;
1- Repaying My School Fees: I lived a life of not liking school as much as meant to and while I was in college, I derailed academically so I had to start afresh. I sponsored myself till my second year before opening up to my parents, despite their disappointment my mum still urged my dad that they should both support me no matter what I did. This is an unconditional love I got from her, no one else can compare to her.
2- Couple of years ago, my mum came back from an official trip and part of her plans was to buy herself a new car. On getting back home, certain things of utmost priorities arose and despite the fact that they could be tackled gradually she decided to let go of buying her dream car. I was not happy then but later understood that the love of a mother surpasses any earthly love especially when it comes to protecting and and providing for her own.
3- The best sacrifice my mum has offered is her daily and relentless prayers. Till this very morning we still gather to pray together. Though she does her personal prayers and fasting more for the benefit of the family, and her fasting baffles me even though she has Ulcer.

Difficult Situations My Mum Faces
My Mum During Her Last Birthday
My mum have always been strong and healthy but the challenge I know she has healthwise is Ulcer. The attack only comes one in a while and since the remedy is easy, she rarely has the attack and keeps eating well.
Another one she just got relieved from is having swollen foot. This happens whenever she is driving to or from work and experiences heavy traffic on the way. Right now she is free from that since she retired and feels better now.
Unique Qualities Of My Mum I Want To Copy
I & My Mum
The unique qualities my mum possesses are quite enormous but I'll go share a few of those.
My mum is a goal getter, a pace setter, an achiever, a leader and scholar. She could only achieve this and a whole lot like her numerous degree and more by being focused. She always told me that whoever's loses focus in anything bever gets the job done 100%. I personally studies her and realised that focus is key and would like to copy that about her.
My mum is naturally a disciplinarian and fears nothing and no one. She has always been a domineering and dominating mother who goes for what she wants not minding any face of discouragement. Her faith is strong and mighty and it reflects in her carriage, her words and her actions. People say that a lot about her because it's obvious and I would like to copy that about her too.
These 2 special qualities of my mum are the main ones I would like to emulate for real, those have made her what she is today and I am forever grateful that God gave me to her.
