Grandma’s green stew

My daughter loves my mum’s okro stew or as she calls it, green stew, it’s her favourite food anytime we visit her. So when She saw me trying to replicate it in my kitchen, she got very excited, even though she kept calling it grandmas. Well let’s just say she was not very impressed that mine didn’t taste exactly like grandma’s, infact it is safe to conclude that she was disappointed😐  A few weeks down the line, she tries to help her little brother with something and he says to her’ No I don’t want you to help me because you don’t know how to do it the mummy way😀. Oh that just tickled me and I felt vindicated, I also have my something.
Anyway the point Iam trying to make is that we  are all writing our  stories, leaving a legacy for our kids whether intentional or just by our deeds. When I was young I used to think the physical inheritance was the most important, what was left for us was the only thing worth having but I now know that what is left in us is even more important.
It has been a while since I wrote anything but today being Mother’s Day here in the U.K. It was only proper to write about my mummy’s green stew. The thing with legacy is that if you are not intentional about it, something will be left in your name, you may just not like it. We must as well be intentional about what we leave the next generation first in our homes and then in our community.
A father instructs but a mother teaches: happy Mother’s Day to all our uk readers.
For your consideration
