Claire Mawisa, a South African television presenter, model, radio and social media personality best known for being an SABC1 continuity presenter from 1999-2001, took to Instagram to encourage single mothers with a sweet message.
TV presenter Claire Mawisa shared an adorable photo of herself with her son Neo, who has just started school this year.
“Single mothers, the majority of us didn’t think we would be doing this parenting thing alone, but here we are, doing the best we can, with what we’ve got. from wondering where money for the nappies will come from, to seeing the redundant ‘happy fathers day’ cards they were forced to painfully make at school, to finding the god within you to remain optimistic and free from bitterness, to wondering whether you have the resilience to make it till their adulthood…every single milestone you reach with your child is to be celebrated (sic),” – she wrote on Instagram.
She went on to add single mothers should celebrate every milestone they reach with their kids
“Look at us, today we start high school! I have done it with the tireless help from my mother; the countless supportive angels that appeared at the right time to help in desperate times, and with the spirit of the millions of women who did it before me! it tough and it hurts. but the money will come and it will all work out in the end. highs are stratospheric! you’ve got this. God is on your side. “women adjust, adapt, glide, accept. they are mighty in their malleability, almost to the point of a superhuman power. men do not always have this kind of elasticity” from commitment by elisabeth gilbert (sic).”
