A Mother's Story: How Do You Do It?

In today’s edition of “A Mother’s Story”, my stepsister expresses her deep gratitude to her mother and awe at her mother’s ability to balance it all. Read her open letter below:

How do you do it mummy? How do you wake up at four o’clock in the morning to plan a day that satisfies the relentless demands of the lives of my sister and me? How do you smile and laugh through disappointments? How do you spend late nights and early mornings devoted to prayer and building a relationship with God, even when life does not work in your favour?

I’m crying, how do you do it mother! I admire your motivation and courage, and I’m inspired by you. I love you with all of my heart, not because of what you do, but because of who you are! I am hoping you have a delightful mother’s day. You deserve it!

*From you wonderful daughter.
