Women of Worth {W.O.W} | Ma


Bodhi Vision Photography, Women's Day Grandmother, Honouring South African Women

I was blessed to have met 3 of my grandparent’s and for knowing and spending quality time with them well into my adult life. I do miss my Nani and Nana immensely for their wisdom and jolly spirits. I am truly grateful to have my dad’s mum still with us who turned 84 on the 16th of July. Ma shows no sign of slowing down.

Here’s a bit of Ma’s story from my perspective. I’ve always known my granny to be a worker. Her strength to rise from difficulty has been a running theme in her life. That zest has definitely been passed on to her children and grandchildren.

In the latter part of Ma’s life her focus was more on serving the temple she is a member at. Her daily ritual is to walk from home to the temple, do her ‘seva’ and walk back home. She draws much strength from this, as well as getting her physical activity in.

I have never met an ‘old lady’ (as we affectionately refer to her) who is as independent. I believe that her no-nonsense personality stems from her struggles, where she must’ve made a decision to live life on her own accord. Hers is a life I will cherish, for the choices she made, for the life she has lived and still leads, for the values she has instilled, for the family she has blessed me with and for her unforgettable dandelion hairstyle. I am grateful for her determination and will, for my life is what it is because of the foundation Ma has laid.
