Each and every one of us have a woman/women who have played a significantly large role in seeing us to being the young ladies we are today. We simply don’t tell them enough how grateful we are for their presence in our lives or can’t put together in words our gratitude for all the moments we witnessed and those which they worked tirelessly “behind the scenes” to ensure we are well taken care of.
For me, that woman in undoubtedly my mother, Fiki Tsekiso. The older I get the more I am able to recognise as well as appreciate the woman that she is to not only my sister and I, but to the community at large. This selfless mbokodo of mine has been through her fair share of trials and tribulations but always comes out stronger and wiser. When I think back to the time when both my sister and I were in crèche and she was working as a nurse earning R400 per month, I can’t even phantom how she was able to hold us down as well as the household down, never-mind herself down. My sister and I were always well dressed, fed, entertained and happy! Even the crazy demands of me attending Saturday modelling classes and sporting commitments were met. How, I simply can’t tell you! All I know is that if I could I would spend every second of the day telling my mother how much I love her and how thankful I am for the woman she is and has nurtured me to be. Ngiyabonga Mtungwa, Mbulazi. I work tirelessly day in and out to ensure that I can one day provide for you the life you deserve. I love you so so much my queen!
In the spirit of women’s month, I’d love for you to share your stories of a woman/women who have made a positive difference in your life. A woman who is selfless, continues to inspire you each and every day and is deserving of a big THANK YOU in the comments section. I hope you do this In person too. #DarlingBigThankYou #Sponsored
