“Speaking of gratitude, let me tell y’all a story.
Two things I’ve missed since the accident are doing braids and wearing earrings. I don’t talk about it but my mom knows this.
“Sometime late last year, mommy came into my room all excited about a package that had finally arrived-little gold hoops that gently hook around the ear. We tried many things with no success cos I don’t have ear lobes so if this worked, it would be a big deal. Bruh. We put them on me and they 👏🏽 stayed 👏🏽 on 👏🏽 like what?! Then we found out we could hook longer earrings unto them too!! I couldn’t believe it.
“Mommy doesn’t know this but I cried that day after she left my room. She didn’t tell me she was still looking for a way for me to wear earrings. She just knew it’d make me happy.
I just wanna say to my sweet & incredible mom @ijeduruokwuchi (founder of @gateaux.d.ije bakery😉) for not stopping until she found a way for me to wear earrings again: thank you and I love you so so much🥲❤️❤️❤️❤️
“I AM WEARING EARRINGS GUYS😭🥰 I’ll be posting about this all week so sorry in advance!”
