Meg

Meet Meg. I thought it fitting to introduce this Strong Woman on Mother's Day, because this is my mother. Raising five children is no easy feat, but doing so as a single mum can be intense. As a small child I remember her resilience and grit as she worked multiple jobs to send us to a private school. Always putting her children first, Meg's heart is constantly invested in the happiness of others- this passion overflowing into her work as a carer in a nursing home. Despite raising five children on her own, mental illness crept in and Meg never seemed to recognise her own strength. I couldn't wrap my head around such a remarkable woman being so unaware of her worth and phenomenal contribution to the people around her. A mother and carer to her core, Meg is my original Strong Woman.
