It’s Another Saturday…#22

Eid Mubarak, guys! This one is for the holidays just because I love you. Another comes on Saturday. Have an awesome night, fam! Baby Daddy  “Love without complications? Honey, that’s like asking for a rose without thorns.” I look at the bunch of roses in mommy’s hands. She is wearing gardening gloves but she remains careful not to touch the thorny stems of the flowers. “Tola, please pass me that vase I gave you.” A sulky Tola picks a green vase at her feet that contains clean water and hands it to me and I pass it over to mommy who smiles into my eyes. I love her garden. The flowers, the way they are meticulously arranged, their different fragrances all coming to one intoxicating fragrance make me want to forget that I’m having a not-so-good day. Jide and I had this nasty fight this morning and I miss him…
