Reasons Why Mothers Are So Awesome

So last Sunday was Mothering Sunday. A time to call and visit your mum with lovely presents to show how much you love her. Being a mother is certainly not easy. In fact, it's super tough! Mothers take care of us when we are babies, nurture us when we are kids, and deal with our mood swings when we hit puberty. Safe to say: it's a very exhausting job. 

Here are a few reasons why mothers are so special.

Reason 1: No matter how busy she is, she will always have time for you

Reason 2: She can wash your really dirty clothes and make them look brand new!

Reason 3: Even a last minute school project can be a success because of your mum.

Reason 4: She will always want to feed you her home cooked dishes!

Reason 5: She will always remember your birthday :) 

Reason 6: When something  bad happens to you , your mum's hug is all you need to feel better.

 

To celebrate these wonderful ladies in our lives, I've picked an African hit song from the 70s by Prince Nico Mbarga called 'Sweet Mother'. It's ubiquitous influence is felt all across Africa and is usually played at weddings and social occasions.

So take a bow, ladies. We appreciate and love you very much.

Have a great week everyone!
