Y'all, I want to introduce you to somebody incredible! She's my momma.
My girls call her Mommo and love her to pieces. I know, I know. Everybody thinks their mom is incredible and they're usually right. Moms in general are incredible. Not that Dads aren't also great, it's just that Moms tend to do things that far too often go unnoticed. After a while, you just kind of expect your mom to be there and do what she does.
Mommo is always there. Always. She is always the first to comment or 'like' one of my blog posts on Facebook. She was one of my first big Etsy orders and she would buy up a million tshirts if she thought it would help me succeed in my new job. And although I could fill up 10,000 post with ways my mom is an incredible mother + daughter + sister + grandmother, I'm not here to tell you that.
You see, she finally decided to do something a little crazy for herself. Right about now, she's on her way up to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Say WHAT?! Yes, you read that right. My mom, grandmother of 2 (4 if you count dog children), is hiking up the side of one of the highest and most famous mountains in the world. I get chills just thinking about it.
I shouldn't be surprised by her adventurous attitude. She's always been a pretty incredible lady.
Say a little prayer for this incredible woman and I'll try to talk her into guest posting about her African adventure when she gets back.
Oh, the title of this post? It's just a little something that Tanzanians say to answer the question "How are you?" Very fitting for Mommo. Here's a little freebie if you are loving this Swahili phrase too.
