The Month for Mothers

It's May, my favourite month of the year and not only because it is my birth month, but because in Cape Town we have the last vestiges of summer, with the mornings and evenings becoming colder and the beautiful sunny days in-between, a sure sign of the approaching winter which brings the much needed rain. In Switzerland, it is spring with the promise of the summer to come, green and vibrant. And it is the month for mothers.

To celebrate this, CDC is hosting a Mother's Day Brunch on 10 May from 10 am at the Parish Centre of St Mary's Cathedral in Cape Town. This event is sponsored by Pick n Pay, A&H Salvage, Fair Lady Magazine, Women's Health, Schroggi Innovations and Yardley. The event will be MCeed by DJ Kevin (Kevin Baker).Up for auction, a mid-week getaway to Club Mykonos for 6-8 people and lots of other spot prizes. Entertainment provided by Celeste Farao, St Josephs Jazz band, and Hip Hop African Rhythm dancers.

Alison and Keasha have successfully moved into the hostel of Jan van Riebeeck High. They are happy to be there and are fitting in well.

Thandi is being a typical teenager in that she prefers to spend time on her cellphone and with friends instead of on schoolwork. This was clear in her first quarter results, but her mother Jennifer assures us that Thandi will knuckle down. We all know what it was like being a teenager and how skewed our priorities were.

To the Mothers out there - a happy Mother's day on 11 May.

Motherhood brings as much joy as ever, but it still brings boredom, exhaustion, and sorrow too. Nothing else ever will make you as happy or as sad, as proud or as tired, for nothing is quite as hard as helping a person develop his own individuality especially while you struggle to keep your own. – By Marguerite Kelly and Elia Parsons

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.- By Tenneva Jordan

No language can express the power, and beauty, and heroism, and majesty of a mother's love. It shrinks not where man cowers, and grows stronger where man faints, and over wastes of worldly fortunes sends the radiance of its quenchless fidelity like a star. - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Sweater, n.: garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly. - Ambrose Bierce

And last but definitely not least:

Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother. – By Oprah Winfrey
