40 They say life begins at 40. It is my born day today. 40 years ago I was born to Sakhiwo no Nondwe who conceived me out of love. My uncle Ndabazoxolo Nkayi named me Unathi. I was the only grandchild my grandfather,Themba, named. To which he gave me the name, Fundiswa, which I use as my second name. My grandfather was/is Themba, whose father was Dyonashe, the son of Singqe🙏🏾 I know I am the answer to my forefathers dreams and prayers and I hold that with high regard. I am the mother of Sinako and Imbo Msengana who too were conceived in love with the man who remains the love of my life. I am sister to my incredible sisters, cousin-niece-aunt-granddaughter to my solid fam and friend to my absolutely crazy friends. To ALL of you thank you for your love. To those I love, have met, never have met and possibly never will. Your love has made me the woman I am today. Thank you for your love. LOVE is a doing word❤️
