Our journey to motherhood is each unique, sometimes it catches us by surprise when we least expect it, sometimes it comes at just the right time in life when everything is in place, and sometimes the journey is long and hard with a lot of heartache along the way, but no matter the road we travel the moment we hear their first cries, the moment we hold them and get to look into their beautiful eyes is the moment our life changes forever, in that moment our purpose in life takes on a new meaning. Motherhood is a journey of sacrifice, selflessness, trials and tribulations, triumphs and failures all intertwined with unconditional love. It’s also in becoming a mom that we realise how much our own mom loves us, that we truly appreciate their worth.
Our moms are our first best friends, their unconditional love can be felt in every little thing they do for us, from kissing our booboos, cooking our favourite meals to tucking us in at night. They show us strength, love and vulnerability, they are there for us every step of the way, from our first words, our first day at school, our first heartbreak, no one will ever be able to take their place.
This Mother’s Day we got to spoil moms with a few sweet initiatives we were happy to be involved in.
Bostik wanted to give kids the chance to use their imagination and create a gift for moms that was extra special this Mother’s Day. One that had their own personal touch and charm, so moms would know just how loved and special they are. So, Bostik armed kids with the tools and set them off to work. Introducing the Bostik Mother’s Day Cupcake Project. Kids were asked to create the best cupcake they could think of using Bostik Crayons, Glitter Glue and Paint Twisters. Cupcakes were highly imaginative – there were tall cupcakes, skew cupcakes, cupcakes decorated with rainbow colours, and ones with never seen before creatures. We were thrilled to be involved in the project and brought the children’s imagination to life. The children were very excited to hand their gifts over to their moms. Some moms even shed a few tears. Everything is sweeter when it’s made with love and a little imagination. The Bostik Mother’s Day Cupcake Project was filmed by 7Films. Take a look; it will melt your heart.
We were also approached by CANSA TLC to donate a cake to the mommies in the children’s ward. They were going to be spoilt with a mini pamper session and cake and tea afterwards. We continue to support CANSA TLC and were delighted to be able to donate a beautiful Mother’s Day sheet cake to the mommies whose world have been turned upside down by this horrible disease. We wish and pray for a speedy recovery for each of the beautiful kids in the Tygerberg Hospital Paediatric Cancer Unit.
Finally we donated a bunch of treats for a Mother’s Day Breakfast hosted by Aidan’s Party Fairies for 35 grannies within the community. Have a look at their Facebook page to get involved in this local NPO who lends a helping hand to struggling families in the community.
