Mother's day competition winner
Round of applause! Carli Loubser of Windhoek is the winner of our Mother’s Day photo competition. She wins a weekend for two valued at N$ 3 600 from Atlantic Villa Boutique Guesthouse, Swakopmund. Also included in the prize is breakfast valued at N$ 350 at Monkey Puzzle Restaurant in Swakopmund.
Her photo is a compilation and very topical in these times we are living in. It caught our eye for this very reason and its great pixel quality was also a bonus. It is a poignant photo depicting lockdown in this Corona-year. Carli, how did you come to take this interesting photo?
My mom and I have always loved discussing life over a glass of wine, but we are now split up due to state of emergency measures. My mom is in South Africa and currently there is such a huge divide between us. To me this is a snapshot of reality, showing social distancing with masks and all. Thankfully, we are still able to visit daily on video call and catch up on events over a glass of wine. What do you think is a daughter’s role in ensuring a good mother-daughter relationship?
One needs to remain respectful, yet at the same time put energy, love and time into building a real friendship. Viewing her as a friend to share fun times and deep thoughts with, yet still being respectful of her role as mother – that is important.What do you think are your mother’s best attributes?
My mom is a helper. She thinks of others first and goes out of her way to help others and smooth things over.
She is the example I hope to follow with my own children one day. What is your motto in life? What do you strife for?
I believe that even if life is difficult, one must not forget to see the bright side. I love laughing. I talk and laugh and can be quite loud. But if my jokes make others feel better about their day, that’s just great. Laughter is good medicine! Thank you to our sponsors:
