20: Geraldine

Portraits - the Motherhood series. 

Geraldine tells me she considers it a privilege to have been blessed with three children and now four grandchildren. She is a registered nurse and raised her children while doing full time shift work and night duty. It's a wonder she found any time to sleep in fifteen years! These days Geraldine helps prepare patients for surgery and works in an operating theatre. Her selfless and generous nature is a constant source of inspiration to her family. Her daughter Merope describes her as loving, enthusiastic, empathic and resilient. Although I do have it on good authority that pulling the old sick card to get out of school was more of a challenge in their household than most.

Sadly Geraldine's mother died at just 51 years of age. She was a great source of support in those early nursing days and Geraldine is grateful that her children were able to meet her. Geraldine cherishes the time she spends with her grandchildren. She moves mountains for them and hopes that they will always know how much they are loved and appreciated.
