Mothers Day South Africa

Mothers Day South Africa – pretty much like mothers day anywhere else hey?  Except not really because we LOVE our country and its moms.

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.

Mothers Day South Africa – in fact, Mothers Day South Africa in Covid-19 – now that is a different Mothers day for sure. Masks and all.

In South Africa we have to wear masks in public areas at all times (except when eating or drinking) what about you? What are the rules in our country regarding masks, mother’s day outings that are permitted? Drop us a comment below we would love to hear from you.
