She was critical in my going to university in the United States at the young age of 16. I was the youngest university student on campus which brought with it many challenges. Without my mother’s encouragement, I would have given up. Instead, I ended up excelling and graduating Magne Cum Laude with honours thanks to the perseverance and disciplined work ethic she always instilled in me.
I am ever so grateful to my mother and am so thankful that she was present at the birth of each of our three children. Her generosity has now extended towards our children and they too get to soak in the goodness and pure joy of my sweet mother's unconditional love.
Thank you Mama for all that you've given of yourself. There's not a day that goes by that I don't enjoy talking to you and connecting with one of the most treasured blessings in my life.
Happy Mother's Day!
