I was six when The Lion King first came out, and it was without a doubt my favorite movie at that age. My dad and I used to watch it together all the time, and it was at this point that the Swahili phrase “Hakuna Matata” became a huge part of my life. As the song Timon and Pumbaa sang in Lion King states, Hakuna Matata means “no worries.” After the movie came out anytime I was down or something was wrong my dad would remind me of this phrase. To this day it is still something he says to me.
My dad has a really big day ahead of him today, so I made this embroidery for him. I wanted to remind him that whichever way things go not to worry because he will always have me here to listen, love, and support him in anyway I possibly can.
I can’t wait for him to come hang out today so I can give it to him!
