Xtraordinary Women Magazine May 2015 | Page 3

Dear Xtraordinary Woman,

Mother's Day is a modern celebration honoring one's own mother, grandmother as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. Women are such an integral part of our community. Women are the primary caregivers and are responsible for raising well-adjusted adults who become positive contributors in society.

I am blessed to say that, since childhood I have been surrounded by strong women that, in spite of overwhelming odds, have taken care of their children, run the family household, succeeded in their careers and have never looked for any accolades to thank them for the positive contribution they have made to society.

This Mother’s day, I would like to give praise to all the women in our community that are raising our future generation and making a meaningful contribution to our country by dedicating themselves to their businesses. I am blessed to see how our Members devote themselves to their businesses, in spite of all the challenges they face. Mothers of South Africa, I salute you!

Thank you to all our members that have sent us such inspiring articles for our magazine this month. Our magazine continues to grow from strength to strength.

Until next month,

Be Xtraordinary!
