Fathers Day

It’s Father’s Day in the Southern Hemisphere. A day to celebrate love for our dads or significant male role model in our lives. I had beautiful uncles in my life, I am forever thankful for them. It was not until I was 29 that I had a true positive male role model and mentor in my life. That man was my husband and father to my children. My sons had a father who stayed.

Good morning Dad,

Did you hear me whisper? I whispered in my mind “Happy Father’s Day dad”, I still think of you every day.

I love you. I forgive you, please know that. I love you Dad.

To all the dads, those who stayed, I celebrate you. To those who didn’t, you have your reasons, just as my dad did. I do feel such sadness for what you lost though.

Our children are pure joy.

To the mums who bought us up on their own. I salute you, I applaud you, i admire, I treasure you. I am in awe of you. To my mum, I love you. Thank you for bringing me up to be the person I am. I am so full of love and gratitude to be yours.

I have reached my fabulous 50s. Guess what, it’s okay. 20 years in the health and wellness industry. Educating men and women on the importance of nourishing their bodies with good food, moving with integrity, recharging their energy levels and empowering their minds. I love my job. A mother of two boys who are now men and my greatest achievement. A lover of words, an aspiring author with a book written and no idea where to go next, a poet who writes from the heart and her vulnerability. A foodie who loves to experiment, a salad lover , But not just your Every day salad, I throw in anything you can think of it ends up in my salad. I have a reputation for making the greatest weirdest salads around. As a total contradiction, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I rescue abandoned souls in the bodies of dogs, an animal lover, Who sometimes likes animals more than humans. My teacher in life, my mother never ceases to amaze me. I am one fortunate human being who is filled with gratitude for the life she lives.
