eighty four


Today we celebrated my mom’s birthday early, so we could be together. With breakfast out. As our family does. I am grateful for the tradition of breakfast at Moyo for Lesley’s birthday. I love my mom and am proud that she is still so exquisitely beautiful at 72. She is the perfect example to me of inner beauty shining out. My mom is irreverent, fun, kind, honest, true, non judgemental and accepting of all and everything. She has an inner strength that sometimes I think not even she is aware of. She is the one who taught me to just do what you have to do. She does all she does, irreverent or not, naughty or not, with utmost grace and dignity. I am grateful to have been blessed with Lesley as my mom. Just as my girls are blessed to have her as a granny. I am grateful they have the perfect example of the kind of woman I hope they both grow up to be.

    Kerry Solomon Your mom is a really special lady. Her home is always open to all the neighbourhood kids, and their moms, where icecream and wine, colouring in books and crisps flow freely. She is extremely kind and a wonderful host, without even trying! I would never say she was 72! Her energy and beauty reflect that of a much younger woman! Wishing her a very happy birthday xxx
