She describes her motherly experience as herculean; but exciting and rewarding.
“To be a mother is a great privilege and blessing. It is also an arduous task but with lots of multitasking, laughter and fun. Your children should always feel welcome and be able to freely speak whenever they are with you. Teach them to be content with what they have, to be respectful, studious, hardworking and above all God-fearing. Not forgetting to discipline them when they go wrong. I believe your children are a reflection of you and the morals you instill in them. So really, it’s an enormous task. But I love it!!!.”
