Honouring our mothers: Félicité Murangira – Mothers’ Day tribute

Félicité Murangira

To our beloved Mother, confidant, and best friend: Félicité Murangira,

She is a Mother that never stops dreaming and believing, and makes sure to instill these attributes in her children as well. She is that Mother that can stretch a single dollar for miles, and give away hundreds of dollars with a simple smile. She continues to define and redefine motherhood as she accomplishes her goals while pushing unconditional support and love onto her children, husband, close family and friends until they accomplish theirs. She literally lives her life to serve and help others. She is the rock, not just for our family, but for so many in the community. She embraces adversity and challenges her strength. She is a gentle soul, and a quiet storm when she needs to be. Through her children and their Father’s eyes, she is the truest form of a blessing.
To some she is Fély, but to us she is still Mommy…..and always will be.
Happy Mother’s Day.
With love, from your Murangira family.
