Alifereti Tuitakali is plan­ning to surprise his mother and wife for Mother’s Day on Sunday.

The 40-year-old from Naloto Village in Verata, Tailevu is the only son in his family and every year he cel­ebrates Mother’s Day with the two women he loves most.

That is his mother and his wife.

“During the day I will wake up ear­ly in the morning and prepare food for my family so that my mum and my wife don’t have to do cooking and washing the dishes,” Mr Tuitakali said.

He is the father of an 11-year-old daughter.

“I bought music box for my wife from Prouds Store for Mother’s Day and for my mum it is a big surprise for her,” he said.

“Since I was in Year Three my mother struggled in a lot of ways to raise me since my father had passed away.

“After completing my secondary education in Naiyala High School till year 13, I started farming to look after my family. Because I am the sole bread winner this is all for the family.”

His mother, Romona Wave, 57, said his son celebrated Mother’s Day eve­ry year for her.

“He never forgets to buy gifts or prepare food for the family on the special day for mothers,” Ms Wave said.

She said she was lucky to have a son like Alifereti, who cared so much about her.
