Mama loves people, prays to always find people in their best moments. Never one to pray to see anyone in their moment of weakness. For Mama the cup is always half full, she sees only the best in people and every situation. She is of the conviction that every good thing you do for others will come back, if not to you then to your children, in many folds hence her unending willingness to always do good by all, especially the downtrodden and the needy. Mama believed that no matter how bad a situation is, if you look deep and hard enough, if you are willing to right the situation, you will find a way out. For Mama no situation was beyond redemption, all it takes is patience, understanding and the willingness to understand the other party’s point of view.
Chief Onekhakha was an astute woman who was always empathic, smiled through the most difficult of situations, gave people the benefit of doubt, cared for everyone she came across, a trait her children have mastered. People took advantage of Mama in many ways, but she always had kind words for them, and she will always try to see the brighter side of things. Mama always advised her children and anyone who cares to listen to show love and understanding to everyone they come across in life without expecting anything in return. She espoused the believe that if you don’t expect anything from people then people cannot disappoint you.
She was that selfless in her world view and this infectious positive attitude is something she hoped her children have imbibed. Mom will be sorely missed by those she left behind.
