Mother’s Day: Awosika urges women to live their dreams
Mother’s Day was celebrated simultaneously in Nigeria and across the world yesterday. The day presented an opportunity for people to pay tribute to their mothers and mother figures, thanking them for all their love and support.
Others, following in the tradition, also present gifts of flowers, cards, perfumes, jewelry, diamonds, chocolates, gifts, foodstuffs, visits and short vacations.
For Mrs. Adesumbo Adeoye and her Esob Heroes foundation, it was a day of encouragement and reawakening the spirit of motherhood with a view to surmounting the challenges of parenthood through entrepreneurship and capacity building.
The guest speaker and chairman, board of directors at First Bank of Nigeria, Mrs. Ibukun Awosika, admonished mothers to know themselves, know their roles as mothers in the home but understand that operating within the order of the home as instructed by God can only bring a happy home.
“No matter what you think I am, in my house, my husband, in spite of my achievement is the head of the home. Whatever I am today, I can kneel down before my husband in front of ten million people and it would mean nothing to me because he is my husband.”
She advised mothers to hold their home in very high esteem and should not put their home at risk in the course of serving God.
Adeoye advised women, in their capacity as mothers, not to bottle their dreams. She also advised mothers to do what they are passionate about, adding that if Mrs. Awosika could be a successful mother, wife and entrepreneur, every woman too could.
