Right to Brag My Three Daughters Three Stars

Right to Brag My Three Daughters Three Stars

Tell us about something you (or a person close to you) have done recently (or not so recently) that has made you really, unabashedly proud.

It goes without saying. My three beautiful daughters. My eldest on the left who is into permaculture and teaching mindfulness and meditation. My youngest in the middle who has just written her last exams and wants to do an Honours Degree in Curatorship. My middle daughter on the right, who is an African Peace Building and Queer Ecologies specialist.  They are all three, smart, lovely, courageous and sensitive people. I am very proud of all of them, in all the small and large ways that they find their meaning. All three unique.

In the words of Sinead OConnor in her song Three Babies:

“…each of these
my three babies
I will carry with me
for myself
I ask no one else will be
mother to these three…

no longer mad like a horse
I’m still wild but not lost
from the thing that I’ve chosen to be

and it’s ‘cos you’ve thrilled me
silenced me
stilled me
proved things I (?never believed)…”

Something from my youngest daughter to me, so lovely:

“You have so much light the plants grow towards you.”

“this perfectly encapsulates how i feel about you mom. you are so extraordinary and make every day miracles a reality in the small and massive things you do, especially for your girls but also for yourself. i love you so much. i am so blessed to be your daughter.”
