The Unfortunate Truth

2014 – a year full of so many opportunities to make my dreams materialise! True, but life tends to unfold in unexpected ways… 

You see, God has different plans for our lives. The year 2014 was my third and final year towards my junior diploma in Fashion and Textiles. A year I had been looking forward to for (what feels like) a very long time in my life.

Yet right at the heart of March, was my cousin’s wedding. So we were attending it as a family affair, of course! I have ALWAYS loved attending weddings, and with my mother we hardly ever just attended weddings. You see, my mother made designer cakes and wedding cakes were her speciality.

Over time, my mother’s company ‘2Gud 2Eat’ catered for more than just cakes, she helped make the entire wedding experience a dream-come-true✨

Without going off on a tangent too much, my mother was very hands-on with this family wedding as well. So was I (of course, being my mom’s designated assistant) 👩🏾‍💼

Given it was for such a joyous and positive reason we had gone out, how this all ended was completely unexpected… My mother and I were driving back together. Unfortunately that was our last mission together, as we were involved in a fatal car accident and my mom unfortunately passed. I on the other hand sustained a head injury and was in hospital for about two months. Though I do thank God, I’m also very grateful for the support and prayers me and my family received 🙏🏾

Overall this situation had really empowered the family and me so much! We miss mom every single day but most importantly we were reminded of God’s importance, His healing power, providence and His ability to comfort ✝️
