Ufuoma McDermott, a Nollywood actress, has written a letter to her creator on the occasion of her daughter’s seventh birthday on August 8th.
The actress reflected on why God had chosen her to be the mother of a beautiful, thoughtful, and loving seven-year-old.
She prayed for him to bless and protect her, as well as to fill her mind with his wisdom.
“MY BABY IS 7 YEARS OLD.” DEAR LORD, I’M NOT SURE WHY YOU CHOSE ME TO BE THE MOTHER OF THE MOST ADORABLE, BEAUTIFUL, THOUGHTFUL, AND LOVING 7-YEAR-OLD GIRL, BUT I KNOW YOU’VE SET ME UP FOR THE TASK. PLEASE BLESS AND CARE FOR HER. MAY YOUR INSPIRATION FILL HER HEAD, AND MAY YOU LOVE HER HEART. MAY SHE ALWAYS LOVE YOU AND RESPECT THE DIVERSITY OF HUMANITY. MAY SHE GROW IN GRACE, AND MAY HER GRANDCHILDREN SEE YOU IN HER. KESIENA, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU.”
This comes just a few weeks after her beloved father died.
