My woman crush Wednesday is no other than my dearest mother; Clara Chinkata.
My mom, has being my major support system… in ways words can hardly articulate. She taught me the value of life, a humble spirit, grateful heart and the importance of divine connections.My biggest supporter; she always rooted for me and gave me words of courage or even comfort as the case may be.
I shall tell you a little story. This happened a while ago..At the beginning of my career in fashion.
” I was ill and did not go to church with my parents.. After service, a truly concerned member of the church walked up to my mom and asked about me. My mom said I was home ill.. The lady proceeded as follows:
“I am always wondering why you allow your daughter wear all those funny funny hats she is always wearing. If she were my daughter, I would never allow her wear them”. My dearest mother smiled at her indulgently and very calmly said.. “If my daughter decides to wear those hats, that means they are very nice and the best. She is a Fashion Stylist/Consultant. You probably don’t understand them or know that they are extremely appropriate/fashionable…I love her hats and they are perfect“…
Oh well..her words went along those lines. It happened ages ago..and I have since advanced (hopefully) in my career as a Fashion Consultant..Her support, pride and undying confidence in my abilities have kept me going.
Mothers are indeed a gift from God and we should never ever take them for granted.
To all the moms,moms to be and aspiring mothers .. May your journey through motherhood be a constant source of immeasurable joy!!
Well done!! You are very appreciated..

Hey Ezinne. Don’t start o. This is a tough act to follow. You are forgetting your mom is GORGEOUS herself. She is one of the few women I know that will never hide the truth from you and she gives it to you straight without blinking. She is an amazing woman and you all are particularly lucky to have her as your mom. I am so so glad that as you get older you are also appreciating she remains your Best Friend.?❤️???
Aunty!! I just saw the rest of your comment! It cut it in half before! Yes Aunty! Indeed she is a great mom and I Thank God for her everyday!! As well as for you! You all are the true definition of phenomenal women. Thanks for the comment and I hope you come back soon!xxx
Darling Ezinne,Your tribute to your mum is so so touching. Thank you for expressing so much love and admiration for her. Clara is truly a woman endowed with gracious qualities and a very caring heart. She is almost blunt to a fault because she says it as it is. Love her dearly.
Aunty!! Thanks for the kind words! You described my mom to the letter! God bless you and continue to make motherhood a source of joy to you!! Lots of love!!
I caught myself nodding with a smile as I read Zinny’s beautiful piece about her Mom, my one-in-a-million Aunty. Zinny, may God bless and uplift you richly as you celebrate your mother in her lifetime. Aunty-m, hi-five for you.
Aunty Ify!! Amen and thanks!!!
