I am still here............Mom's 70th and more.....

Hello fellows, I know it's been a long time, over a month since my last post, I have been away. I went to Africa for my mom's 70th surprise birthday. I didn't blog about it because I was afraid someone who knows her might read my blog and tell her. It was a big surprise, I first went to Atlanta to connect with my sister , had a stop over in UK to connect with another sister and we all went with some of the grandkids to surprise the woman, she was so shocked when she saw us. The party was well planned courtesy of my sisters and brothers back home, she didn't have a clue until she got to the venue.. It was really a nice surprise .

We thank God for journey mercies back to our various homes. Most importantly my mom was so grateful and happy.

 I thank God for her life, for being the best mom in the world, for her love, for the discipline...oh I can never forget those days and they worked out so well on all of us, I will forever be grateful mom......

Here are some of the pictures with my parents, my siblings and some grandkids... ....
