Let McCain help you say thank you for the little things

During May we celebrated Mother’s Month on MOMentsbydjzinhle.com and we are ending off the celebrations with a bang with the help of McCain!

Let McCain help you say thank you for the little things

Mom – Someone who may not have given birth to you. She is a role model, a teacher and a hero. She raises and cares for you and always puts your happiness before her own. She loves you unconditionally no matter what, she is your world.

The love of a mom is an incredible thing, she gives without expecting anything in return, goes above and beyond to make sure that you are loved and cared for and she ultimately loves you no matter what. A mother’s love is unconditional in every way and during the everyday hustle and bustle we often forget to say thank you for the little things that she does for us which mean everything. McCain wants to help you say thank you to mom.

The act of saying thank you doesn’t need to be a grand gesture, it can be a quiet moment shared between you and your mom over a meal that you have specially prepared for her. Food is love and when preparing a meal or a dish you put your whole heart and soul into the cooking. This small yet meaningful act of preparing a meal can really mean the world to a person, especially a mom.

McCain has put this theory to the test with three real people who were given the opportunity to create a delicious surprise meal using McCain Veggie Sides, Stew Mix and Crispy Oven Chips to say thank you to their moms for all the little things. Jonathan, Jessi and Thuli each cooked a surprise meal for their moms. McCain wanted to add something unique and special to the surprise and helped Jonathan, Jessi and Thuli create a personalised plate for their mom. Each of the plates had a special message from them telling their moms how much they mean to them. The result in each case was an emotional and wonderful moment between mother and child as the message on the plate was revealed.

McCain would like to give you an opportunity to create your own beautiful personalised dinner plate for your mom to say thank you. You will be able to go online (www.mccainjoys.co.za) and create your own plate by choosing the design, creating your own personal message and then have it packaged and delivered as a surprise for your mom. Each packaged plate will cost between R220-R290 depending on where the delivery is. The plates that are created can also be shared virtually via different social media platforms, allowing you to share your messages of thanks, joy and appreciation online.

A mom’s job is filled with many daily challenges so take a moment to make your mom feel loved and appreciated and say thank you for all the little things that she does that mean everything to you.

So be sure to visit www.mccainjoys.co.za from April 2016 to September 2016 to create your printed plate or your virtual plate. Share your stories and messages of thanks and appreciation for mom with McCain using the hashtags #MakeAPlate and #JoysOfMccain.

    To my mom: When I saw how to enter the competition I thought to myself it’s a bit too much having to go on all three social medias. But yet again I thought about all the things you have done and what you are still doing for me, nothing in this world compares. I love you, you are my super woman #tearyeyes ?

    Mom the Queen of my heart no words could ever describe the way I feel about you.
    I could write a novel about you but still the pages would not be full. You mean the Universe to me and its not just your presence that makes me love you.You are always there to love, guide ,critise, encourage and show me between right and wrong. I pray god keeps you safe always I still need you in my life. My kids and I adore dearly that kind warm heart of yours always being not just my mother but my bestfriend. I love you always and all I need do is show you and give you the love and affection you deserve. #BESTMOM IN THE WORLD..

    Mama remember how we would always fight during my teenage years all because of my rebellious nature and never wanting to conform to rules, its during those years that I kept think to my self that arggg this woman doesn’t get me but in actual fact ubu ngoyena unadaziyo and actually tolerated me, for those years I am sorry for all the tears I bought to your eyes and Im thankful for your love, because its that same love that carried me through to my 20’s. Remember how hard it was for me to finish my qualification in tertiary and each time I would get a supplementary exam ndityafe and wanted to give up, well you single handedly managed to get my spirits up and encouraged me to do my best, I remember the day of my Graduation and the Joy your face and only now do I understand you were not just happy to see me graduate but that day your saw your prayers being answered by God. Remember how I panicked after completeting my qualification sitting at home crying because of not getting a job and you always saying ” Linda, hlala emthandazweni ithuba lakho liyeza” well indeed your words were right iThuba lam did finally come through all those emotional days you were the one who lifted my hopes and spirits. I never understood the depth of your love for me the one moment that made me understand uthando lwakho for me is the day that I too became a Mom myself it was only then that it hit me that your love for me knows no limits and bounds. I personally wouldve never been able to do this parenting job if it wasn’t for your constant support, constant advice and constant love. You are the most amazing woman and your efforts are sometimes unnoticed. I want you to know I love you , I cherish you and I adore you. Ndiyilento ndiyiyo becuase of your love.
    I now get it Mama!
    I love you MamGiqwa, MamVaba Nkosana!

    With only a standard 5, you thought me how to read, write and count. Today I’m a qualified mathematician all thanks to your hard work and prayers. Now you are also assisting me in raising my own daughter, and my only wish is to be half of a mother you were to me. No words can ever express how thankful I am to you, ndiyabulela Qwathikazi!
