My most beautiful love story, my mom's love for me.

"Love worths a sacrifice," said MORICE GREVICE. A mother is the person who better defines this proverb. The mother, this refined creature, who does everything to make her surroundings a true world of comfort and takes care of every detail of Life.

I will never forget that day my mom was a week away from giving birth to my little brother Joshua. She was preparing  me to go to school. She wanted to change her top, she asked me for a hand, at the level of her belly I noticed a large bandaged injury and surrounded by stretch marks. I was very scared and asked her:  _ "but Mommy, how did you get a huge injury_ like that, what happened to you wait i'm going to call aunty Marcellin (her doctor friend)  so that she'll take care of you. She replied : _ "no Esther, you must _ go to school" _ I replied: _but mumy are you out of your head with what you ask me there, go to school filled with you and you're hurt like that ??? _ She said to me with smile on her face: _Masoro (which means dad's princess) this is not a hurt it's my best * accomplishment * __accomplishment? I asked again with a great curiosity as I am of curious nature I like to discover and learn. She replied: "yes. my body can not allow me to give a normal delivery So doctors offered  me wheither to  killed the baby and adopt a child or passed by the cesarean method that is to say you out by my belly instead of the genitals._ She to continues saying What you see here in a bandage is because your little brother Joshua has come out here and it is not yet dry, your sister clemence and you too olso were born in this way" I was only 7 years old at that time the only words I said were:  _ "mom do not cry it will pass, I'm going to school and I'll bring back your biscuits you'll eat and this injury will disappear" _ Today I realize that it was a great promise I gave to my mother. to make my mother happy and proud Through the education she gives me and make her forget all the pains of the past

The method of cesarean delivery in the Democratic Republic of the Congo at the time was really very risky. It was a method done just by a scalpel, and a needle. The woman was in serious danger of cancer, and the caesarean section took half of her belly.  My mother accepts all this just to give me life. Nowadays all women want to have size 36, she accepted a deformed body, stretch marks she accepted Scars on her stomach for all her life just to get me. #love

One day in the living room I asked her why she did not wear fancy clothes or luxury accessories, she replied that her luxurious life is the education she gives us. Her only goal is to put ourselves in a favorable climate for our future. What love can be compared to a mother's love?

She's not highly educated and does not have a good French accent, still she remains the best teacher that can exist. And that in all areas of life. _she does not know or wear Gucci, Channel, Louboutin, berberie, ...; She remains the most beautiful in the world _ her intelligence is comparable to the new technology. She finds a solution to everything.

That's a mother! _ to all the moms of the world! _ to all creatures that gives real meaning to life! _ all the sublime creatures who understand things in their fine details! _ all these sublime creatures who! understand everything in their own perspective! _ to you the woman always in honor

#ONE DAY AIN'T ENOUGH TO CELEBRATE YOU MADAM HERO !

Happy mother's day!
