Over the weekend Citizen TV news anchor Janet Mbugua and her family had a special reason to merry make as the journalist’s mum clocked a milestone. Janet Mbugua is arguably one of Kenya’s most inspiring female personalities in the country. Her blog is a beehive of her thoughts and inspirational posts, valuable to the ladies who look up to her.

Last Friday 14th, her mom clocked the 60 year old milestone. Janet and her family celebrated her by throwing her a surprise birthday party at the Mediterraneo Ristorante, Junction Mall.

The birthday celebration inspired Janet to pen a letter to her 31 year old self, imagining herself at 60.

Part of the excerpt reads,

‘Dear Janet,

First of all, relax. You’re doing okay. I know you feel like there’s so much on your plate but that’s nothing unusual. You haven’t even seen the half of it! Soon you’ll be a parent and you’ll be learning to balance motherhood, being a wife and still working on all the projects you’re passionate about. You’re nervous, I can tell. There’s a part of you that’s apprehensive about trying to do it all. You’re seeking a new path and in order to be at peace with that, you’ve begun to realize that there’s people that may not understand you or support you while you’re climbing your way up the career ladder.

Meanwhile check out her beautiful mum.
