  1. My most memorable moments , was when I was about to get married and moving to my in laws, and we had cooking lessons for an entire month, (note I hadnt cooked or baked my previously not a single time, as mum always always spoilt me with her great home cooked meals) mum teaching me skills, tips & tricks , it was absolutely priceless moments. We bonded together while baking / cooking and talked like buddies…it was absolutely amazing to be able to do that, share giggles and chat about just about anything in the process….and mums wise words was “Nothing brings people together like good food”…😘💃

  2. My mom teaching me to crochet and knit will always be my fondest memories. Also spending lazy Sundays in bed with her, my dad my brother an the family dog.

  3. Has to be our mother/daughter weekend away with a few of my friends and their moms. I appreciated her so much more after seeing her in such a different setting. My mom is human, she is a woman, she has needs, she makes mistakes, her mind is so much different to mine and I love that.

  4. It would have to be the night my mom and I shared the dance floor with a bunch of 20-somethings at her granddaughter’s 21st birthday party! At 72, she still had the moves!

  5. Baking cookies in th kitchen before a camping trip, bonding, sharing and loads of laughter! A tradition I am keeping up with my little girls!

  6. I don’t have the closest relationship with my Mom but when my 3 rd son was born, my Mom came to stay for 2 weeks to help me out. We talked and shared a lot. It was the closest we have ever been and I cried when she left to go back to Durban.

  7. My mom & I developed a habit of walking for exercise every weekday morning. I’d start of grouchy & grumpy because it was too early, too cold,too lazy etc but Mom would listen on in quiet amusement. She’d comment on the beauty of quiet early mornings,she’d natter on about beautiful homes we’d walk past & even chat to the dogs that would bark at us.Her observations were infectious & before long I too stopped being grumpy & paid attention to our wonderful path. We started to share moments of our day,our dreams,our fears, our reflections. These were so precious moments because it was in these moments that I got to rrally learn.about my mom….not just as a mom,but as a woman with dreams. I cherish these moments with her!

  8. My fondest memory of my Mom and I would be a weekend away in Hogsback. With love, happiness and laughter within the beautiful nature. We had the opportunity to explore everything Hogsback had to offer, the friendly locals, the beautiful scenery as well as the best local pubs and restaurants that offer home away from home meals. Spending quality mother and daughter time is a must and it gives you the chance to bond with one another on new heights. I love you MOM forever and always. My number one treasure till I die xx

  9. My mom always gave us the best birthday parties, her cakes were legendary, and I remember we were so excited before the time we could hardly sleep the night before I birthdays. Love you mom!

  10. my fondest memory is when my mom taught me to cook. I used to burn the rice at the beginning, but she told me its ok. practice makes perfect she always told me.

  11. my fondest memory of my ma (mommy) is when she used to cook me my favourite food whenever I asked for it. I was mommys boy and today I miss her food so much as she i watching over me from Heaven.

  12. My mom, Sharon van Niekerk, is the best mom and gives all of herself to us and to others. She is an occupational therapist at tygerberg hospice. She helps patients rehabilitate after accidents and operations, aswell as making patients comfortable while they’re on their death bed. She works half day so that she can be home to help my brother and sister with homework after school, as well as to clean the house and make supper. It’s not like she’s doing anything EXCEPTIONALLY EXTRAORDINARY but she’s a super hero to us and to her patients. And that’s why she is the best mother, to us and to others. My favourite memory is when the two of us went on a road trip together!

  13. The fondest memory of my mum is cuddling up each evening on her bed while we talked about my day and then she read me a bedtime story which always ensured a good nights sleep. I follow the tradition with my girls and hopefully one day they will also recall these days fondly💙

  14. My memorable days it’s our Saturdays with after doing laundry our beddings we would just admire her bed and put clean bedding together the net would look so beautiful .we would like on the net she will tell me stories when she was young with my Granny and I would laugh

  15. Saturday mornings when my mom when come shopping with me. My sons are very close in age and when they were little it was an impossible task to do the grocery shopping with the 2 of them. So my mom and I would go shopping together – each taking a little boy in a trolley made my life so much easier and shopping together meant we had our together time every week.

  16. My fondest memory of my Mom is actually of my Dad, my Mom died when I was very young and my Dad had to take care of two little girls all by himself. Just looking back at what a great job he did (and is still doing) are some of my fondest memories. Xx

  17. One of my fondest memories is me and my mom on holiday in Clarens… just relaxing and chilling with craft beer… just the feeling of complete happiness and complete relaxation.. walking the streets of Clarens shopping and just being happy…. that is one of my fondest memories… I think maybe because it was before she had her stroke and everything just seemed perfect…

  18. My fondest memory of mom was when she was there with the birth of my daughter. A moment I will never forget

  19. My fondest memory of my mom is when i had my 2nd baby. My hubby was in JHB and i was rushed to hospital. My mother took the stand and held my hand during my birth . It was definitely a moment and a special bond that will be cherish forever. 3 generations in 1 room. Amazing atmosphere

  20. I remember how mum use to let me read her star sign to her then explain it to her in isiZulu, my mother’s emphasis was on reading and getting educated. She always use to say I don’t want you to end up being a cleaner like me so please go to school and change your life and of those around you. I will always remember this valuable lesson and never forget how much she sacrificed for us to have a better life

  21. My fondest memories are with my mum in the kitchen in my teenage days, her teaching me all the in’s and out’s of making delicious meals.

  22. The fondest moment of me and mom was when I first got my periods..the way she assured me that everything was going to be okay and how nothing was wrong me, she made the transition from being a girl to a young women smooth. I love my MOM

  23. Has to be the day I came from hospital after delivering my twin boys. It was a rainy winters say. I was exhausted, physically and mentally. My mom washed both my sons, made them a bottle, put them too sleep and made me a lovely cup of coffee while chatting with me about the whole experience until I could fall asleep for a while. She is living in so many ways. Could not have come this far without her

  24. My fondest memory was when my mother taught me the importance of spreading more love in the world. She told me we are born into a broken world, and I need to find the right partner who will help me make the world a better place. I go to bed remembering her words everyday. I love you mom.

  25. My best memories with my Mom was created on our farm. During the days Mom teach me to cook, to make jams and chutneys. In the evenings we sat on the stoep and watch the awesome sunsets, while sipping on a cup of coffee. Later she would tucked me into bed with a kiss and a “I love you” Love you for ever Mom.

  26. Liked and sharing
    🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹🌸
    One of the most special moments I spent with my mum was the very first day she taught me how to bake that day is etched in my heart and mind for always , a moment that instilled in me my love for vbaking. Today I’m a mum too and can proudly bake for my own family thanks to my mum teaching me , sharing recipes and tips….and it all began one cold and rainy afternoon in a tiny and humble kitchen with a precious mom 💛❤💛❤💛❤

  27. She would make amazing desserts and sneak a few treats for me even though she said she wouldn’t.
    My birthdays were always a huge celebration. My mother would invite all my friends and family and we would have a blast, and she would make sure everything was perfect from the decorations to the food.( My Birthday is on the 25 December). She has a 24/7 job and she never complains. My mother is my superhero and she is absolutely amazing.

  28. #Win #Bedroom #Competition When Mom (and Dad when he was still with us) visited us and she enjoyed the tour we gave her of the area around our beautiful town to the most Southern Point of Africa and Lovely town Arniston. She really enjoyed the stay.

  29. THERE ARE SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM… But maybe one of my fondest memories might be our weekly Saturday rendezvous. After finishing my ballet class, my Mom and I would go to tea at Greenacres Tearoom (in a departmental store in Durban) many many years ago… There was a resident piano player, tables were decked in white linen and silver cutlery… We would order tea and cake and just for a moment pretend we were royalty… miss you Mom…

  30. One of my late mom’s favourite things to do was have an afternoon snooze. She always said that having her ‘lie down’ got her going again for the rest of the day. And nowadays I find myself doing the same thing – nothing better than having that afternoon kip to refresh the soul and then continue with life. So thanks Mom, for leaving me with that special memory and great piece of advise! Will love you always!

  31. Fondest memory of my Mom is her good food and us singing and laughing in the kitchen while we are doing the dishes. #Competition #SealySA Sealy South Africa SA Decor & Design – The Buyers Guide

  32. My fondest memory of my mom is collecting milk from our dairy on the farm and getting back all excited to make thick creamy custard and then sit on her lap on the veranda eating it.

  33. One of my fondest memories of my Mom and I are when I was a child and my Mom would read Enid Blyton’s – The Magic Faraway Tree to me in bed at night. I treasure those memories so very much.

  34. Every memory about my mother is fond memory. I lost her when I was eleven
    My mother was a housewife. She used to wait by the door when we returned from school. She used to do everything for her children with a smile on her face. I was little at that time did not understand or were too busy thinking of only what I wanted.
    She made me feel like I was the best in the whole world.She taught me to read and write. She is the first person in my life who taught me to be honest. I miss my mother.
    When I see people disrespecting their mother. I feel like telling them that they dont know the value of having by your side. I am sorry if I bored you with my life story. Your question reminded me of my mother.

  36. My fondest memory of my mom, is of her taking me to Preschool on her bicycle and putting a scatter cushion on the cross bar so that I could sit comfortably. It’s a memory I will never forget. I loved it. Hildegard Walters

  37. Memories of myself & my parents near the ocean⛱⛱, spending long lazy afternoons with fishing rod in hand, perched at the waters end. It’s a magnificent setting😍 to just inhale nature’s wonders & that’s what I tag along for, to marvel at the beauty & take in the fresh salty air. A picnic basket lovingly made by mum, jammed packed with goodies, sun hat in hand and it’s hours of me & my parents at 1 with nature. The birds flying🐤🐦, ships full steam ahead ⛴🚢& us just having a pleasant summer afternoon out❤….priceless…💚💙

  38. My mum used to watch over us when we were on our way in school. today I work and she still sees me off. standing on the balcony. Its become a habit and she hasnt tried to break it

  39. #Mom is one Amaaaazing woman .she is fierce #beautiful caring .My fondest memories are coming from school. .and she would be waiting for me at the school gate… We would get home. . and my glass of milk would be waiting for me😍😍 .. I would tell her how my day was. . weekends she would take me to Cape gardens. Or to the sea. I have Soo many fond memories. I would help her with dinner ..she would make play dough for me and we would play house house omg she was fun. Or play dress up. I looked her high heels shoes hahaha. My mom is such a fun person 💃💃💃💃💃

  40. My fondest memories with my mom was falling asleep in her arms until I was 12 years old. I’m an only child and I was terribly shy so my mom was my best friend.

  41. My fondest and most recent memory is when my mom had to be in theatre with me when I had my little girl. We just lost my dad to cancer and my mum wasn’t handling it too well. That day was the happiest I’d seen her in a while as she welcomed and held her first grand daughter.

  42. The fondest memory of my Mom was my first visit home after a year working in Gauteng. I could smell that she was in the kitchen from the roadside and she was cooking my favourite crab curry. The smell of her cooking will always be with me and it helps that she taught my better half all her cooking secrets.

  43. I can not say if I have a fond memory. I have memories I can share but they are all equal in the affection quotient.

  44. My first day starting high school, I was so nervous all morning and mom said don’t worry you are the smartest and look the best in your uniform my baby. I couldn’t stop smiling that day and could just hear her voice on repeat in my head. Today I am a mother and I know that when I make my daughter smile I am the happiest mom in that moment.

  45. My mom and I walking through the forest to Camps Bay retreat for a sunset drink and her almost falling into the river. =))))

  46. My memory is not too much of a fond one…this is just one of the sacrificial gestures that my Mum has done for us over the years. My Mum was the chauffeur during our growing up years – to school and back and shopping and off to extra curricular activities. It was on one afternoon that an unfortunate incident took place back in 2001. Mum was on her way to take my sister to her extra maths tuition which was about 10 km from home. On the way, a driver slammed into her vehicle from behind while she was at a red robot. She injured her spine and ever since has battled with a pinched nerve and slipped disc. I feel so terrible for Mum especially because this was not her fault in the least bit and yet she continually suffers which pain. We have invested in many special beds over the years but I really hope to win this amazing Sealy as none of the others have made any difference to her in getting a restful, peaceful nights sleep. I think that for all that my Mum has done for us throughout the years, she deserves a break now and she deserves to rest properly and awake refreshed and revived and rejuvenated and full of energy as she goes into her 60s. This will be such peace of mind for my sister’s and my Father as well. Happy Mothers Day Mummy. Thank you is not enough for all that you have done and for all that you mean to us all. We love you!

  47. There are so many good memories but my fondest memory of my mom is when we used to play dress up. We used to try on outfits, do each others makeup and spend quality girl time chatting on the bed and the best part is we still do this.

  48. One Fondest memory I will never forget, and hold dear to my heart, is when my mom emerged from the Oncologist rooms after her routine Blood Count Check up, whilst i was waiting for her in the waiting area, Suddenly, she done a “break dance” move in the reception area and announced she is in remission……. @ the age of 77, She literally slid on the floor of the surgery room breaking out in a happy Dance!.. It was awesome, she received Cheers and Claps from other patients in the surgery!… Happy Mothers Day to all Moms out there.

  49. My fondest memory with my mom was when she helped us sort through our toys and clothes and wrap up the good quality items for those less fortunate that ourselves. We took them out on Christmas Day and found people we could give them too. It was so special and a memory that I attribute to my nature as a compassionate and empathetic person. Thank you Mom

  50. My fondest memory of my Mom was when I saw her again after 9 years. She and my Dad got divorced and my Dad through lies and twisting facts were awarded custody over us 5 children. He immediately got us admitted to the Abraham Kriel Orphanage and forgot about us. My Mom lost the battle and ended up in a bad state. But she picked herself up and as a result my sister and I were allowed to spend a holiday with her after about 9 years. Just to be able to say hello Mom, was the best ever!!! She died later in a freak accident. It was an honour to meet her again

  51. Mom is my best friend my shoulder to cry on loving open arms so welcoming.
    Always available day and night.The woman that gave birth to me and i feel honoured to call her mom.I suppose the memorable moment is my time i spend inside her womb where i felt safe and loved.She gave life to me.

  52. My fondest memory of my mom is when I was 4 years old and she’d keep me under her table whilst she teaches her sub A’s – that was before classes were called grades. Having a 4 year old at school would be frowned on by the school inspector.
    Now, with my at 84 my most treasured memories are when I give her a full body massage, rubbing out all her aches and pains in her arthritis riddled body. I would not trade these moments for anything and wish I could do it more often. Unfortunately distance does not allow us. Our massage sessions are when we catch up on our girl talks and have plenty of laughs.
    In between these times, we talk on the phone on a daily basis. 💗

  53. Woah!!!! WONDERFUL Giveaway 💚🍀 My Fondest memories of my mom is the nights we used to have midnight snacks and tea when we couldn’t sleep.(myself and my mom never use to like to sleep early) We would both meet in the kitchen get the snacks ready, make some tea and we would jump in her bed.

Nowadays we still have snacks and tea when I go visit her and we would still jump under the blankets when its a cold winter night and catchup on series.

  58. My fondest memory of my mum was the bedtime routine we had when my brother & I were kids. We would get tucked in warm and snug, which was always followed by a very animated and enthusiastic bedtime story (always read with such great expression!). Then, after a kiss and some “I love you” spoken over us…we would drift off into dreamland to her beautiful piano playing that we could hear coming down the passage. To this day, the moment I hear Für Elise, I think of my wonderful mom. #LoveYouMom

  60. I will always remember the times we all crawled up in moms bed and she told us stories and cuddle us and gave us so much love. I learned so much from here. Thanks mom for being such an inspiration in my life

  61. One of my fondest memories happened quite recently when my mom came to visit me 1500km from her home to see her grandkids. She does not very often see her grandkids and wanted to take them out for their favourite meal. She found out that it’s burgers LOL. And my mom despises burgers but because her grandkids LOVE it so much, she pretended to love it too. She chomped into that burger with GREAT EFFORT LOL And that horrifying look hehehe 😂😂😂 I just HAD to snap a few pics! This is one of my fondest memories because this just shows how much love she has inside of her heart and not just for her grandkids but for everyone she knows and come in contact with. She will do anything even if it means eating her WORST foods #SealySA #Win #Bedroom #Competition

  62. I have so many memories of myself and my mum.

    My fondest memory is when I was little. I used to sit on the kitchen table and watch my mum cook authentic Indian curries (as we are Indian). The aroma filled our home and our street. She cooked with such grace and finesse, from the most simplest to the most complicated of dishes. This filled our home daily! My mum has now passed on since 2012. I miss her dearly!

  63. My fondest memory, is where I was “laid-up” in a Johannesburg-hospital, following a serious motorcar-accident, with little hope for recovery, where my mother visited me DAILY, reading to me and trying to “cheer” me up, continuously encouraging me to TRY things, although they might be extremely painful. The good news is, today I am fully recovered, and have achieved WAY more than anticipated.

  64. O wow mom spoilt me rotten – My mom could not afford to buy me fashionable clothing, but she made me feel like a princess every day by making me beautiful clothing from leftover material or material donated by people who had some sewing done by her. The neighbours in our street said they would sit at their window on Sunday mornings to see what I was wearing to church. I had beautiful dresses with matching hats, etc. She also made my beautiful wedding dress. and saved me a lot of money ! #LoveYouMom

  65. My fondest memory I have of my mom and I was definately when I was 4 years old. It was the wedding day of Prince Charles and Princess Diana!! My mom took the day off work. By that time she had taught me how to knit and the two of us was sitting in our small little brown painted living room watching our beautiful princess getting married. It was a day I will never forget! We were both enchanted by her dress and the tremendously long vale she had. A true Princess!! Mommy and daughter knitting away, just being together and relishing in the beauty before us and now 37 years later, relising in the memory of that day, knowing our beautiful Princess’s son is getting married soon.

  66. Endless summer days spent at the beaches of Cape Town and municipal swimming. Explains why I love water and swimming is my favourite way to keep fit

  67. My fondest memory with mother Is when she came home a evening and started prepare supper with the little she have.she always have a story to tell while we busy peeling and cutting veggies together and her stories is real life stories with meaning of life.We have fun and laughter with tearrs of joy in our eyes enjoy working in the kitchen together with the most amazing woman in my life.As we both prayed together with my siblings before dishing the food.Mom did not just show me a family that pray together stays together.Mom taugth me never forget where I come from and show me how a little can goes along way. I am humble and proud to have a mother like My mom.She is Irreplaceable and my fondest memory learn me so much in life …

  68. Memorable moments is when i went went to the Dentist.i was scared .my mom came into the room and told me a story and ehile that being said the doctor did his thibg.my mother is a wonen who can make everything better

  69. My fondest memories of my mom is recently when we attended a Great Gatsby ladies event it was awesome she really went all out and took part in all the events! our other fave is watch marathon series together like grey’s anatomy! Laying on the bed ! Singing even if all the words are not from the same song!

  70. I remembered the times when I was young and me and my mom would bake cookies and bake fresh bread. Wonderful times and memories.

  71. There are many many moments and memories, but I can’t ever think of her without remembering her bravery. Mary, for 44 years of devoted service as a surgical Nurse; her comforting and reassuring bedside manner toward her patients in what is commonly a traumatic and vulnerable exercise for a patient (and their families), has seen 1000”s of Men, Women, Boys, and Girls bravely through their times or need.
    Add to this her devotion for her own children (and dozens of their friends that forever seem to be around – I think its her cooking and Motherly demeanour that keeps them coming back for more), nieces, nephews, and the next generation of youngsters thereafter; and it is safe to say she has spent the majority of her life dedicated toward the needs of others before her own.
    The past couple of years alone have been an extremely tumultuous for her; she retired, lost both her parents, her favorite Aunt, and much beloved brother-in-law, as well as the seemingly endless chronic complications, hospital admissions, surgeries, and treatments I have been subjected to due to a serious chronic condition, for which I have since been advised there are no more treatment options available to me. Mom, as a nurse and more importantly, as a Mom, has given up everything to help me, and didn’t even moan about all the 3AM IV Antibiotic changes at home!
    Still, Mom puts on a smile and keeps putting one foot ahead of another in her tireless quest to serve, love, and Mother.
    Thank you Ma. We ALL love you.

  72. Evening conversations as a child, reading her my “books” then her singing to us. A writer herself, she fostered my love for writing, one of the main reasons I chose writing as a career.

  73. My fondest memory of mom was every year at our school fête, i was part of the drum majorette team (St Dominics Convent Boksburg) as a flag swinger. It’s an event mommy would diarise and excitingly looked forward to, she would be helping out in the changing room, stand around in prayer and make sure dad keeps her place in the stadium, middle row of course. This was her proudest moments, as she thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, the hype and seeing her daughter in action. She was so supportive, encouraging and such an inspiration. Today being a mommy myself, i look forward to my 8 year old son’s cricket games and watch him with so much pride and love. Thank you mom for your love and presence

  74. The week before my wedding had been very busy, but the day before my Mom and I took ourselves out for milkshakes and it was a very special time together because the next day I would no longer be her little girl but would be leaving home to marry!

  75. My fondest memory has to be when she taught me to drive .while teaching me to do the Parking I pressed on on the accelerator instead of the breaks .I knocked the wall .it wasn’t a big damage but I still dented her car .only way to pay back is to win this awesom bed for her .now I am a perfect driver because of her ..fondest memory can never be forgotten

  76. My fondest and Memorable memories i have made with my mom over the years, is baking all types of biscuits, cookies and puddings, My favourite is Mulva pudding 😆 I was always the guinea pig, loved every moment of it, as I got to lick the spoons afterwards. I have passed on the same memories to my daughter Juanita 😄

  77. A memory of my Mom to never forget, I had just started my 2 year National Service, when the Commander of the base called me in, said my Mom had phoned, my Dad was in hospital, I was given a 7 day pass, but in that time my Dad left us, my Mom then phoned the Commander again and explained the circumstances of what happened, I was then given another 5 days pass, went back to the base and I will always think of that memory that my Mom did for me.

  90. One of my fondest memories of my Mom is me sitting at the kitchen table, watching my Mom making homemade sausage rolls from scratch. This was a rare occasion because my Mom worked in retail which means that she worked most weekends and late nights. Spending time with my Mom was the greatest especially when it was her off afternoon and she picked us up from school to go to town. She was great at crocheting baby clothes and blankets and she taught me the basic stitches.

When I was about 16 , I was randomly approached to interview for a modeling competition.In one of the panel interviews they asked who is my hero and why. When I came out and gave my mom a breakdown of the Qs. I was saying -I said my mom is my hero because she is the bravest women alive- Drs have told her they never thought she would survive let alone be functional & if Im lucky enough to grow up one day-I will be like her. I have never seen my mom cry but that day -The tears just kept rolling. I didnt get it then but now that I am a mom myself-knowing how hard it can be.Knowing that you have actually done a good job and your kids love,respect and admire you -is one of the best gifts you can ever recieve.She is a wonderful mom & granny.

  93. One of my fondest memories was of baking and icing biscuits with her. I had to cut the biscuit shapes out

  94. Aaah my mom moments are striving daily as she’s my strength without her I wouldn’t make it in this world. I was born with blaunts diseases (bone narrows) so she was in and out with me her warm support is what keeps me going my moments when she say she will never leave my site 😍, should she die I know I’ll be next I can’t live without her in my life

  95. I remember there was this huge hype of the world coming to an end at midnight year 2000. So we were at home celebrating and waiting on new year’s. At 12 exactly it started pouring down with rain. My mom and I decided to enjoy our last few moments dancing and singing in the rain. We just allowed the rain to wash over us. Holding hands and running down the street in the rain. Such a precious memory 💟💟💟

  97. My mom’s memory had my friends laughing all the way. My mom, a medical nurse by profession, was a “farm, born & bred girl”. Of the things she hated most was take-away, magwinya or any kind of junk (& unhealthy – he words) food! One of the niceties we missed was being taken to a restaurant.The she made a deal with myself and my siblings – four boys & one girl – that: “You all pass your December examinations and be amongst the top 10 – but best Top 5, we will bend the rules and take you to the restaurant for a family dinner”. Then came the hour we all did it in the Top 5. We were then tom be whisked away for the dinner! Then my dad, was summoned to travel abroad in the last minute substitution in the entourage of the Prime minister (I was living in Lesotho back then). My mom could NOT drive properly, but somehow that day she drove us to the restaurant – its called Rendezvous Restaurant, Maseru Lesotho. We enjoyed that meal so much since my mom made it SPECIALLY for us, her kids & did not want it diluted with . She gave us the “Freedom of the restaurant) – where ordered what we wanted and get words like “we all are eating burgers”, or “its baby chicken for everyone” etc….It was my first fresh water trout meal (it is still the best from that restaurant till today> I have ha many a fond memories with my mom, but this NOT even Usain Bolt, can “bolt” – forgive the pun – over this one!!

  98. Sunset horse ride in the Drakensberg in 2015 when my mum was visiting from AUS , it honestly was one of the most spectacular afternoons and we had the best quality time together doing something that she loves. I will treasure this memory forever,

  99. My fondest memory is in my teenage years, Sundays were always spent in the kitchen with my mum, teaching me all the secrets to cooking delicious meals, and making gorgeous round rotis, to die for. I cherish those days with all my heart.

  100. There are so many good memories but my fondest memory of my mom is when we used to play dress up. We used to try on outfits, do each others makeup and spend quality girl time chatting on the bed and the best part is we STILL do this. ❤️👩‍❤️‍👩

  101. My fondest memory would be from this year. My elderly Mom needed a shoulder replacement it has been so wonderful to be the one that is here for her, helping her convalesce with my help. Being here for her this Mothers Day, and having her in my home has really touched me and made me so grateful for all that she has always done for me.

  102. Beautiful memories were made in our family kitchen. Loved being the assistant baker who got to lick the bowl! My Mom is the reason I absolutely adore cooking and baking.

  103. My fondest memory of my mom were all the Saturdays she took me with her to work while I was in Primary school. My mom worked in the Children’s Library for 34yrs so I was surrounded by books all my life. She taught me how to file away books, book them out and even repair them. They also had special holiday workshops that I would helpout with, read stories to the kids, do arts and crafts I also dressed up like a fairy princess and danced around the library in a beautiful white ballet tutu while the excited little girls that visited, followed.

  104. I have so many awesome memories.. but one of fondest has to be when I was trying to find a wedding dress.. and I couldn’t find anything that I liked, and what I did like I couldn’t afford… and I was very emotional, and my mom put her arms around me and held me tight and told me it would be ok.. we would figure it out together… and my mom made me beautiful wedding dress.. she is completely self taught and took on this huge job to make me the dress of my dreams.. and it was stunning.

  105. I came home one day with a friend. My Mother did her best to prepare us a meal. She grew up in an orphanage and did not have any “kitchen training” money was also tight. She still did her best to make me feel worthy in front of this friend. I will never forget her kindness and all her hard efforts to give me the best of everything in her abilities

  106. When I was young and still at crèche, I had an accident and was hurt. My mom came as quickly as she could, and she was very worried. I was taken to clinic then transferred to hospital. Although is was a bad situation, my mom was there all the way, that’s what kept me calm, even when I was admitted she came to see me everyday and brought me something nice.

  107. My fondest memories with my mom was wen i was younger, around 10. My mom and i spent alot of tym cooking and baking, i enjoyed licking the cake bowl, and the spoon , i enjoyed learning to cook moms tasty spicy curries and other trafitional dishes. It was an advantage coz i am the only daughter, so we had alot of mom and daughter tym. Now that i have 2 daughters of my own, i do give them my undivided attention. Its great being a mom. My youngest is 8, i did buy my last bed from the bed shop, was the worst mistake ever, the bed has actually sunkin a bit and there nothing they can do they say. Except turn the bed around. Im in real need of a new bed for my aching diabetic body. 🙇🙇

  108. My mom always did her ironing in her room, I would then go lie or sit down on her bed having the world’s conversations with her, I still do it after 40 years, but she doesn’t iron anymore, instead she lies down for her afternoon nap and I will still have lots and lots to talk about…… I cherish these….

  109. My mother was a housewife. She used to wait by the door when we returned from school. She used to do everything for her children with a smile on her face. Especially Sunday lunches was the best we didnt have much but we would sit around the table and talk while having lunch.

  110. My fondest memories would be cooking up a storm with mom on Sundays. We would make. Roast and stew and bread and butter pudding. The Windows in the kitchen would steam up because of all the cooking. Awesome memories really!

  111. My fondest memory of mom were all the beautiful rags dolls she created for me over the years as a kid and she’s still at it . Money was scarce but my amazing mom somehow found fabric and cut offs from friends and she use to sit till late at night creating the most adorable dolls for me. Thank u mom LOVE U WITH ALL MY HEART

  112. After giving birth through emergency csection i was coming down with post natal depression and my mother took a week family responsiblity leave to look after us and my situation improved and she taught me a lot about looking after a newborn and myself now that i am a mother and I am forever grateful on Heavens for bringing me such a caring and loving mother…

  113. Moms are the compass for our families; they provide the nurturing and comfort that will keep you strong for the rest of your life, and echo into your children’s lives, and their children. My fondest memory of my mom is that she made sacrifices when we were young to make sure we were happy in whatever endeavour we were pursuing at the time. She stood behind us when it was appropriate, but also made sure we learned that all things we do are not necessarily something worthy of supporting.

  114. My dad passed away when I was but 5 and thru all this my mom who was 42 years when I was born, took care of us (6) by herself. being the youngest we were eventually by ourselves. my fondest memories were the times she taught me how to do real farmhouse cooking and also when we took the train from JHB to Pretoria to spend the day at the zoo. She wasn’t as mobile as she used to be put always tried to make life comfy and interesting for me. I miss her so much

  115. My fondest memories of me and my mother is the day before my marriage, we spend the whole night together giving me advises and telling me that I’m her child and she’s not chasing me away, home will always be home

  116. My fondest memories of me and my mother is the day before my marriage, we spend the whole night together giving me advises and telling me that I’m her child and she’s not chasing me away, home will always be home6

  117. My Mum has been dead now for four years tomorrow, it’s hard to think of only one thing but maybe the fact that she didn’t like food and cooking have made me love both and her smoking made me never want to. Her abounding love for us affected me so much that when she died I actually felt a physical loss of something I never realised I could always feel over my left shoulder. I miss her terribly. She gave me my love of sewing and knitting and urged me onwards and upwards.

  118. #SealySouthAfrica. Sealy la difference would be amazing… My husband and I have 3 little girls all under the age of 9 & they find no greater joy than getting under the covers with us to snuggle with us… everyone gangs up to tikkle mom… even my mom would come from her room and join in to hear my raucous laughter, when we all still lived together….a great quality bed would make all the difference… longer cuddle time and more laughs with my people!! 💙

  119. One of my fondest moments with my mom was when we went croc cage driving at the wildlife ranch in oudshoorn last year precious memories created that day we both were so scared but we faced our fears😂I couldn’t have done this without my mom she motivates me in so many ways. Mom you rock 😎

  120. My fondest memory of my mom and I is after our nice afternoon lunch that has been prepared by my beautiful mom we would always have our mid day nap on the bed. Facing each other always looking like we forming a heart. I love my MOM!!! God gave me the BEST!!!

  121. Sadly, my Mom passed away 5 years ago. I have a few fond memories of her. As a child growing up, I remember every Saturday her baking a chocolate cake, and I would have the honour of getting the mixing bowl. As an adult, I remember how she use to doctor me as big as I was. The fondest memory of it all, was when she was bed ridden after she had a major stroke, I had the honour and privilege to look after her.Our roles were now reversed and I would do it all over again. LOVE YOUR MOM

  122. Me in the ok bazaars as a child feeling tired and waltzing to the beds on display I lay down and said I was tired and she battled to get me off she wasapparently so embarrassed apparently the crowds gathered around me sleeping beauty ..madam. .must have been a sealy

  123. My fondest memories with my mom was spend Saturdays with her after I was married. I actually saw and spend more time with my mom after I got married than when I lived in her home 🙈 . We didn’t have a washing machine at our place so everyday Saturday morning my husband would drop me at my mom’s , it was awesome time chatting and learning… laying on the couch watching tv just me n mom

  124. My fondest moments was when I was younger my mother use to take me to work with her. (That was or still is every child’s desire to go to work with there parents.) She worked nights at a hospital. The best about it was on a Monday morning when I get to school and told everyone where I spent my weekend,everyone thought it was the coolest thing. This one of the greatest moments.

  125. My Mom always gives me the best advise…the best she ever gave me was “every NO brings you closer to a YES”

  126. Liked, tweeted, shared to pinterest and google+ this awesome competition Sealy South Africa you remind me of the times my mom Denise Avenant used to clean prep and portion veggies to be freezed and sold in the community just so she could supplement the household income. My memories of this have fostered a respect for her and an appreciation of hard work that have held me in good stead not to mention the lessons she taught as she did this about appreciating and respecting food. This is among many of the fondest memories of her I have.

  127. My best memory of my mom is when she held my daughter for the first time. I was told that I could never have children and I lost 6 babies, never being able to carry to term. My mom holding my miracle baby after she was born is a memory that will live with me forever. From the moment I laid eyes on my mom I knew this would be a lifetime of love and commitment. Someone who would love me unconditionally, who would guide me through all the ups and downs, never judging me, always supporting me. A mother is the truest friend we have. My mother was there for me throughout my pregnancy, guiding me as I learnt to deal with constant nausea, holding my hand as I threatened to miscarry, never giving up on this miracle inside of me, easing me into motherhood and teaching me that unconditional love is the root of motherhood, crying with me as I lost one baby after another, looking after me as I went through hours of labour losing yet another baby. I have my miracle child, despite being told I never would and my Mother has been that special bond, that glue that holds me together and I can only hope and pray that I will one day be just half the woman she is, someone who is loving, kind, giving and never has a bad word to say about anyone, always seeing the good in every situation and never losing faith!

  128. My fondest memories of my late mother was when we spent alone time together – then she would share ‘pearls of wisdom’ as well as personal intimate details of her life which she only shared with me. Most of the anecdotes were accompanied by a suitable life lesson. It never felt that I was being ‘preached to’ but that great value and integrity was imparted. Occasionally she would bake eclairs and allowed the 3 of us Children to participate – fun times!!! Her eclairs were the very best I have ever lasted – crisp and firm of the outside , enrobed in melted chocolate with a cream and custard filling – makes me salivate just thinking of them! Wonderful memories that never fade1

  129. Lazy, sunny Sunday afternoon afternoon naps with my Mum in winter time where the afternoon sun would filter through the window. She would always wake up before I did!

  130. My fondest memory of my mum is every single time I get the blessing to see her and hear her voice. My childhood was not the easiest coming from 1 of 4 siblings my mother raised on her own. Every single day she made and continues to sacrifice for us. I could not ask for a better mom, a better best friend, a better advice giver, doctor, nurse and shoulder to cry on.

  131. The best mother, is the one who spent time with me at hospital, while recovering from an accident, who took care of me when I was returned home, and cared for me long after the recovery!

  132. My foundest memory of my mother and I is when I was about to get married nd she sat me down and advised me on her experiences on having a happy successful marriage. I have never been a person to discuss my romantic relationships with her but she gave a me a platform, it was unforgettable.

  133. I have many fond memories of my mom, and besides every single time I visit her just adds to the list! I do have my favourite one’s though.
    I used to be a rebel and did everything under the sun any parent would disapprove. My dad was the strict one while my mom always was and always will be the sweet gentle loving parent any kid could dream of. My mom did not go to work, unless she was certain I entered our school gate.( I am pretty sure she must have gotten into a lot of trouble at her work place for mostly being late! We grew up very poor, but my mom had her way of encouraging me to study through the night. She would used her last to make sure I have enough snacks to keep me happy and going while sitting with my books. I doubt if she was getting enough sleep, because every hour or hour and a half she will check in with a cup of Horlicks to make sure I am keeping warm. Even after all her effort , the times I did not pass my exams she was still the one who inspired me to try again. In short …. she believed in me all the way! Honestly if it wasn’t for my mother and all her positive energies and always seeing the good in me even in times when I could not see the good myself I really dont know where I would have been! If I could, I would not think twice to buy her this amazing comfortable bed… to say ‘ thank you mom for all the sacrifices you have made’ , So now that she do not have to worry about me anymore she can finally enjoy a perfect nights rest on the very best beds every made! #LoveSealy#

  134. The day i told my mom i am pregnant and we went for the sonar. She was so excited while we looked at my son’s heartbeat. Will never forget that moment

  135. My most memorable moment with my Mom was us driving through the country roads in England and both of us singing at the top of our lungs, the funny thing was neither of us can sing so if anyone could have heard us they would have run a mile!!

  138. One of my fondest memories with my mom was dancing💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻. She used to dance around the house looking so overjoyed and beautiful. She loved to salsa dance and listen to music, but she always used to ‘silly’ dance with me. I wanted to be like her and move like her, so I started copying her moves. She taught me the importance of not taking yourself so seriously, that life is fun and dancing can be fun, too—all you have to do is move your feet and just sway along to the music of life, my mom is the coolest person i know. We live and laugh out loud ❤ ❤ ❤

  139. I was about 5 or 6. My mother had promised to take me on a picnic that weekend. It was summer, but in true Cape Town style it was a cold and stormy day. I woke up, looked outside the window and began to cry, because I knew we couldn’t go out in that weather. When I went into the living room a bit later in the day, my mother had moved all the houseplants around the picnic blanket, covered in all my favourite goodies, and we had an amazing day, without leaving our home.

    There are many other stories about how my mom kept my childhood joyful, filled with imagination and just down right fun.

  140. My fondest memories of my mom are the times she used to kiss us so much I would get annoyed! And when I was feverish and her hands were always cool on my face. And the sacrifices she made to keep us fed and clothed. I love my mother.

  141. There are so many good memories but my fondest memory of my mom is when we used to play dress up. My mom would spend hours and hours behind the sewing machine making us clothes and outfits. I would go through her big box of patters and mix and match items that I loved. When she was finally done we would try on the outfits, do each others makeup and spend quality girl time chatting on the bed. We might not have time to sit making clothes today but the best part is we STILL go through each others closets and swop items of clothing, try on outfits and do each others makeup. ❤

  142. My fondest memory of my mum would be of her staying up all night when I was little because I was ill. She would take care of me and nurse me back to health. My mum is my pillar of strength and after losing my dad, I was her priority. Till today she continues to shower us all with unconditional love. She is my treasure and I am truly grateful to have her in my life. #MothersLove

  143. When I was still in school, my dad used to work away from the house a lot. When he was away, I would sleep with my mom. I did it until I was in high school.

  144. The day we went for my sonar. Our eyes met and she both saw my son’s heartbeat. So precious and would not share it with someone else #Win #Bedroom #Competition

That memory Wil forever be in my heart. I love you mom

  146. One of my favorite memories is going through the car wash. When I was younger and we went through the car wash, she would always open my car window during the part where the water jets are pointed right at the car. I would always pretend to be mad, but I liked the fact that she wasn’t afraid to get the inside of her car wet just to make me smile.

  147. I’d like to nominate JeAn, not only is she an amazing mother and grandmother but also an unselfish wife, 2 years ago she lost her husband to cancer, even through that pain taking care of him she never lost sight of her motherly duties. I salute you ♥️💃

  148. My fondest memory of spending time with my mum is when she would come home after a long days work and catch up with us over dinner to see how our day went.

  154. I am now a 47 year old woman and i think my mom bought her bed when i was about 7 0r 8. It is a Sealy bed by the way. When i finished school i had to work away from home. I would travel home every month end.So everytime when i went home i would sleep with my mom and it would feel so good. We would talk till dawn. She has unfortunately passed on but i still enjoy a comfortable and peaceful sleep in her bed when i get home for holidays. It always feel like she is with me. I gave away everything but that bed. That is my fondest memory of my mom.

  159. My fondest memory with mom is after Dad leaves home for work at 5:30am every morning, I jump into bed with mom with a cup of tea and we talk until we fall asleep. I miss this a lot after I moved to Johannesburg 2 years ago but I still do this when I visit.
    She really needs a new bed because the springs in that bed attack them at night. Its really old. <3 <3 <3
    Fingers crossed for her 🙂

  160. Though I urinated much in bed during sleep in mid 60`s sleep as a kid, ma was gentle not to rebuke me. Presently a t4 complete for 26 years, ma still faithfully makes my bed, though I now utilize a indwelling catheter attached to a urine bag.

  161. My fondest memory of my mom is when i was lying in hospital after i got hurt while learning to ride a horse. She had to sleep on the bench and me on the bed. I remember saying to her, lets swap and she said that would never happen because she understands this is part of growth and the love she should give should not be conditionally. She told me material things don’t define who you are but give you the courage to do good. Her love has a warm touch and gift of life. She is theonly person who never judges but tell you when you out of your way. The always present soul with a hands of change and heart of gold. She is the love, security and one that would never take you for granted.

  162. Funny enough my memory happened recently. My mum was making pancakes and my daughter and I went to visit. She invited us to come into the kitchen and we got busy helping her.My mum was so full of energy and bubbly and reminded me of the days after school when she spoilt us with similar treats. Not only was it fun being taught by my mum but the fact that my daughter was with and having fun with us made it a memory I will forever hold near.

  163. Wonderful memories of many moons ago! Mom with a hairspray can fixing my hair in a neat and tidy bun and spraying my pink satin ballet shoe ribbons just before my ballet exams…

  164. When I think about my late Mom, I smile, because I had a happy childhood and happy memories of her. She never let anything bring her down. She always smiled and created a happy home for us, with the means she got. We grew up knowing that material things weigh far less in the end. And we were taught to appreciate the small things in life, as they mean the most.

  165. In 2012 my mom got sick and I almost lost her. Even though she was getting weak each day, she always woke up with a bright smile on her face, and had the most positive attitude I have ever seen. Always encouraged us to be strong. She is the most loving mother and so strong, I have never seen her loose hope or give up in anything. She sacrificed a lot just to make sure that all her kids achieve their goals, and for that, SHE IS A WINNER!!! 🙂

  166. Best memory was when we will gather together with my sisters in my mom’s bedroom and she will start story tale with us, like her Grandmother uses to do. The best part was when she gave us a chance to write our own story and narrate it to the family.. It precious moments and one of those opportunities that made me the best writer I am today.

  167. My dearest Mom, is my entire world. She is the glue that holds everything in my life in place. She have taught me how to be a strong, respectful, loving, selfless and supportive woman. Without her I would have been lost in this great big world. She bakes the best koeksisters and makes the best cup of 5 roses tea. How I miss those Sunday mornings before church, when she used to knock on my door and bring me a plate of warm freshly baked koeksisters and a cup of tea. She have taught me the true meaning of love. And that love is not just about hugs and kisses. It is about the random acts of kindness that you do for others. She taught me what it means to give love and be loved and for that, I will forever be grateful. I hope that one day; I can be a reflection of her. Even if I am half the mother she is, I will consider myself blessed. Every time someone praises me or gives me a compliment, my heart swells in pride, because the compliment is for her, my Mom, who raised me and made me who I am.

  168. Every moment I spent with my mom is fond to me, the fondest memory with my mom would have to be when I use to came back from school, she would be the first person I want to see, she would help me with my homework made me sandwiches tickles me and im glad because now im passing that to my kids

  169. My fondest memory of my was when she got paid every month… No it’s not like that… Money was tight in a family of 5 as my mum earned just enough for the necessities on her staff-nurse salary. But she would cut somewhere in her budget to be able to buy the 4 magazines for R100 promo that they ran monthly. These were the days before social media or MNET or DSTV or cellphones. We would lie on her double bed – mum and her 3 kids – each with a magazine. And the magazines would rotate until we read or paged through all 4 magazines. My mum qualified as a professional nurse and bought a king size bed as the tradition continued. When I visit – my kids and I huddle in my mum’s room. I read mum’s stash of new magazines while the kids are on their Ipads.

  170. When I was little I used to LOVE watching my mom getting ready for the day. I would lie in her bed and just watch her… It was in the 80’s and as you know a PERM was a big hit. She used tilt her head forward and throw all her hair to the front blowdry her hair with a BIG DEFUSER attached (does people even use a defuser these days?) ,and she would spray almost a quarter bottle of hairspray on her hair, then she took the ‘magic comb’ I still remember it was bright orange and quickly drag it through her hair. She looked so beautiful. When her hair is all done she would start with her makeup. Every morningsl she looked even prettier than the day before. The smell of hairspray still reminds me of my mom EVERYDAY. Love you mom Fransien Blom Van Altena

  171. WITH ALL HER DAILY TASKS THE ONE WHICH STANDING OUT IS HER BAKING ” MELKTERT ” FROM CHILDHOOD DAYS TILL GROWN UP TILL TODAY WE SHARE AND LOVE AND EAT AND ALWAYS GO BACK FOR MORE FOR HER MELKTERT RECIPE !! ALWAYS BE A WINNER IN ALL VISITS AND CIRCUMSTANCES !! AND DEFINITELY THE BEST FONDEST MEMORY !! OF MY AWESOME AND AMAZING MOM !!

  172. WITH ALL HER DUTIES EVERYDAY IS THE BEST FONDEST MEMORY OF ALL TIME THE BAKING AND RECIPE OF HER WINNING ” MELKTERT ” – THIS IS ALWAYS THE FIRST MEMORY COMING UP BECAUSE IT IS A WINNING RECIPE ALL THE WAY AND BEEN GUARANTEE THAT YOU ALWAYS COME BACK FOR MORE !!

  173. Fondest memory of my mom is when she used to bake for our local bakery, us kids used to get all of the flops. The flopped recipes were the best, up until today we still ask my mom to bake us a flopped cheesecake, it is the BEST I have ever tasted!!

  174. I had the most beautiful childhood memories of my mother. When I was a child my mom made us beautiful and wonderful meals, cakes, cookies, tarts, puddings, Sunday lunches and Christmas lunches. Payday she would give us R10.00 each for clothes, sometimes, I would not have enough to buy the something I wanted and then had to tell her I found the special dress but I needed R3.00 more, then she would give it to me as I had very expensive taste. After shopping she would take us to OK Bazaars to go eat pie, chips and gravy and milkshake as a treat. I remember oneday I was so embarrassed she bought me my first bra at Woolworths, it was white with red roses on and green leaves. I was so embarrassed I kept it in the back of my cupboard till I was 18 years old and ready to wear it. My mothers health was failing and her kidneys were failing so the other kids was wanting to put her in hospital or a home so I said NO, I will not allow it. I took her to come live with me and took good care of her. I also put my arm around her and with my other hand took her hand and told her Thank you for being the greatest mom to me and Thanked her for everything she did for us as a mother. I also jad the priviledge to prepare her for Eternity and helped her to accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour and helped her do the sinners prayer. I Rhank God I had a great Mother the Best a child could ask for.

  175. My fondest memory of you, Mom
    Was how you stayed ever so calm
    When I told you what I had done
    And you just looked at me, your son
    With all this love in your eyes –
    Which took me by complete surprise.
    From then I knew, we were always on the same side
    And you would always be my guide

    I am really sorry I broke your favourite vase

  176. Here are my foundest moments of my mommy.My mother raised us being a domestic worker, she worked very hard for a better future. I remember how she knited, collected and reused wine bottles to decorate it and resell, ok here is the story she worked as a domestic worker from the age of 20 years  and worked for 20 years so at the age of 40 she went back to study, age didn’t matter when hiring that time. So she studied for teaching, unfortunately her mother didn’t live to see her graduate. My mothers decisions, her dedication showed me it’s possible. Would like to win this beauty for her to show her how much I appreciate her❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ and to thank her for raising me to be this strong

  178. Fondest memory of my mother would have to be when my late dad would work late and I knew she couldn’t sleep without him being in the house.i would wait till my brothers were asleep and make her a cup of coffee and open a packet of biscuits and then get into bed with her.we would watch TV with no sound,while she would run her hands through my hair and tell me all sorts of stories till my dad got home.

  179. My mother gained her angel wings 17 years ago. The fondest memory I have of my angelic mom, was that she became a widow at the tender age of 49. Mom then became mom and dad to all of us. in total we were 11 children, of whom 4 was ranging from 3 to 14. Mom made everyday a sunshine day with her smile, her warm hugs and kisses when life was not treating us well. She never once complained. She loved her God with a love that was so pure. All of that, she left in our hearts and our memories. When life knocks us down today, we just kneel down as she taught us, and take all our hurt, troubles and problems to God, and ever so often, I will still feel her close by my side, giving me a silent hug of just a smell of her perfume, to let me know that she is there for me. Our mom was our angel on earth and is now our angel in heaven.

  180. My fondest memories with my mom are the bedtime stories mom used to read to me. 📚 My fave stories were “The Magic Faraway Tree” and “Charlie and The Chocolate Factory “ 😍😋🍫 Story time was “our time “ , a time to snuggle, cuddle & giggle together. I treasure those precious childhood memories of my mom & I with all my heart 💖 Would love to spoil my mom with a gorgeous new Sealy bed. Liked Sealy South Afroca Facebook page and Shared with all. Fingers crossed. #Sealy #Win

  181. My favorite memory of my mum was when i lived in England. I had been there about 6 months when she started missing me too much and came to visit. We went one day to the Cadburys factory in Birmingham… we got so hyped up on sugar and it was just the best day!

  182. Trips to the library every Saturday morning with my Mom was something that I always looked forward to. And today we still share that love for reading

  183. Where do one begin? Such a lot of beautiful memories of my mom! Strong, caring, loving mother! What a blessing she is indeed! When I was about 12 years old my mother used to work as a cleaner at one of our local hostels( we used to call it the “koshuis” Since we were seven kids and really poor her workplace was a blessing in disguise because the workers used to get daily meals just like the students. My mom was working from 7am till 7pm at night. my dad would then make us a sandwich when he get home at 5pm. But the exciting part was when my mom gets home with nice cook meal and dessert! She would then share between us with so much joy in her eyes( I guess just looking at our faces while she would dish up gave her so much unspoken pleasure. Many years after I left school I understood that she never ate any of the lunch or supper provided at work but saved it so that she could serve to us. To me that was so selfless 🙂 She really never thought of herself, because after supper she would clean the dishes , clean the house in a more proper way then we as kids would do. The only time she would finally take time for herself was when we were finally tucked in bed.. As I grew older I named her Florence Nightingale because she might not be a nurse but she certainly have that strong will to take care of family and others without worrying about her own needs. LOVE MY MOM FOREVER AND A DAY!

  184. With mom there is never a dull moment. She will tell us stories about her childhood and how far they have to walk to get to school.. she must have been quite a drama queen in her days cause even when we talk about our school days she will tell how her teacher used to take her to all the other classes of the same grade so that they can listen to the way she could tell poetry with such a lot of passion. Up untill a year ago out of the blue she would get up while all of us are just relaxing and start telling a poem. Her favourite one “muskiete jag” we would have a great laugh because just seeing the way she could use her imagination while telling was just so funny! The innerchild in mom is still very much alive that is for sure!

  185. My fondest memory of me and my mom is from when I was about 3 or 4 years old. It is my earliest and fondest memory of her. It meant a lot to me, especially now. When I was little, my mom would wake up early and put fresh milk or yoghurt and some biscuits by my cot and by my sister’s cot. She did this so that she could get enough rest. Raising two toddlers aged 11 months apart, was a handful to say the least. At that age, we would wake up, start “talking” to each other and jump out of the cot and wake my mom up to eat something.
    My mom, especially, needed a lot of sleep as she worked hard and many times brought her work home. She sacrificed getting up before we were awake to put some snacks and milk for us, so that we would eat and go to sleep again 🙂 This was rather funny for my mom to do, just to ensure she could get enough sleep; but she did it out of love and I appreciate it immensely.
    I would love for my mom to get the best sleep possible, for all those days my sister and I kept her awake, when we were younger.
    Thank you Sealy South Africa for allowing me to reminisce about this memory. It still makes my mom laugh when I tell her this story. <3

  187. I once did a night shoot during Winter with temperatures almost below zero. To top it all it seemed like the shoot was never ending. I was so grateful when it finally ended at 2am. I was completely exhausted and could not wait to get home and straight into bed. As i was driving i started shaking uncontrollably , my hands and toes felt completely frozen . I was never this cold in my entire life. As a arrived home and reversed my car in the driveway, i felt dizzy for a moment, . My mom was outside, waiting for me with a blanket in her hand and as i struggled to get out of the car, she was there covering me with this huge blanket, escorting me back into the house. My bed was so warm and inviting. My mom took off my boots and started to massage my feet, and then my hands. I could not contain my emotions as she was doing this at 3am in the morning. My tears were just rolling down my cheek. After a few minutes, mom got me warm milk and honey, that night i slept like a baby, warm and comforted, so grateful to God for giving me such an incredible mother.A mother can replace anyone, but nobody can replace a mother. . A mothers love is truly out of this world

  189. My fondest memory of my mom was her comforting me every day after school without me telling her anything about me being bullied at school. At night i would lay awake in my bed and mom would get in beside me and just hold me. When i finally got the courage to tell her what happened, she said she knew something was wrong. The next day she took on my bullies and the principle of the school as the one guy happened to be a prefect at school. I later discovered that the boys were expelled from school although everyone was saying that they moved to a boarding school.

  190. My fondest memory of me and my mom was when i baked my first cake at the age of 9. Mom was sitting at the table and i was doing the baking. She was smiling and chatting to me the whole time. When the cake came out of the oven we were overjoyed .I made an icing and offered some cake to the neighbors. . Mom and i both share a love for baking and cooking.

  191. My fondest memories of my was when I was In Primary School. She would drop me off and pick me up again… When we would come home from school there would be freshly baked bread.. wth jam or cheese waiting for me. Nd the smell of freshky brewed coffee huis coffee on coal stove 😍😍. . Or she would in summer make fresh lemon aid . .
    She taught me to be independent . At the age of 10 she taught me to make pancakes . it was Soo much fun 😍 ..Now’s she has passed away. When ever I smell freshly baked bread. . I think of my MOM 😍
