Mothers Day South Africa

I am dedicating this post to my mom. Of course, she is the BEST mom in the world!!!

What do you think of when someone says the word, mom? For me, it’s a kaleidoscope of memories and things …. from delicious brownies to lazy Saturday morning scrambled eggs done only the way your mom can.

Mothers day is one that just seems to sneak up on us all –  BUT every time I have made an effort to do something special for my mom on Mother’s day I have been richly rewarded with memories I will cherish forever. I think life is just too rushed and trying to fit everything in can be daunting.
