A local man has thanked his mom in an amazing way for all the things she sacrificed to raise him. Taking to Facebook, the young man, Busisani Mhlambi, shared a lengthy and heartfelt post as well pictures of his old lady standing by her brand-new set of wheels.
"You worked as a cleaner earning R1 200 a month but still managed to put food on the table. You would pick up food in the dustbins of OR Tambo and bring it home for us to eat. You would go sell sweets at a school to put food on the table.
"Sometimes you would come home having sold only R5 worth of sweets and I'd be so excited knowing we'd be able to buy bread that day. It is, for this reason, I always buy from people selling stuff in the streets and on traffic lights even when I don't need the things they sell because I know what that means to them.
"I am what I am today all because of you, and owe all my successes to you. I could write a whole book on the sacrifices you made for us. You sacrificed yourself, literally for me to be where I am today."
He lists a number of other things his mom has done for him and then he ends of the long post by saying he loves her and how thankful he is towards her for everything. Moved Facebookers had this to say:
Kathryn Watson said:
"I literally have tear in my eyes reading this All moms sacrifice so much for their kids and often it goes unappreciated."
Carol Du Preez said:
"Sad story but such a beautiful ending."
In similar touching Briefly.co.za reports, your past does not affect your future. Or maybe it does but in a positive way? Take a look at most guys who grew up in poverty. Often, they pull through and make it to the top like the kings and queens they are.
They claw themselves to the top of the ladder because they know that staying down or out of the game is not an option. That is simply a risk they are willing to take. Rosemary Akora, a Facebook user, is not a prideful woman but she is indeed a proud daughter.
She did not grow up in a fancy mansion with workers swarming every corner. No, she was brought up in a mud-walled home in the village. But that moulded her into a determined woman who knew too well that one day, she had to say thank you to her folks one way or another. The woman with humble beginnings built a breathtaking brick-walled house to replace her parents’ old residence.
