Nzigos CHERYL AUNTIE CHERYL RECOLLET What are your teachings surrounding being an auntie? Share your stories of the sacred, proud and protective role you hold in embracing the safety of family. As long as I can remember, we have always been surrounded by our aunties. I come from a long line of powerful and beautiful aunties. We grow and share with love and laughter. Our aunties have emulated the kindness and caring of our Grandma’s and they have honoured the role we have now inherited as aunties. I love being an auntie. My nieces, nephews, great nephews, godchildren and little cousins keep me happily busy and entertained. I love sharing experiences with them, teaching them, travelling with them and having fun. My friends always comment that they love hearing “Auntie, auntie, auntie” wherever we go, as our little ones are always close by. I will honour the teachings shared by our aunties and continue to care for our families as we grow together.
