She didn’t have lots of followers like Marianne Williamson
or revered in the spotlight like Michelle Obama
but in the eyes of her small community
she was much more.
She didn’t need to have the qualifications of Okonjo Iweala
to save the economy of their pockets
but her priceless deeds were enough to soothe
as they crossed the many rivers of life.
They may never be well-placed
to know these globally influential women
or really feel the benefits of their impact
but having the chance to come across her in their lifetime
was as good as the best.
Happy Mother’s day.
