Our beloved Booysies have hit some seriously rough waters. In my sister's words, "It is difficult to describe what we have gone through these last two months. Everyone's experience has been their own. They say, we're all in the same storm but in different boats. Our boat has been leaky, without a propeller, and I'm pretty sure there's woodrot."
As two self-employed people, their businesses have been hit hard by COVID-19, and after waiting for months for their house sale to go through, they had to move at the 11th hour when lockdown was announced, only to have their buyer break the sale agreement before the deeds office could re-open.
It breaks my heart to see them standing to lose so much of what they have worked so hard and with so much integrity for, but pressing on so bravely as they face having to move back and start again from scratch.
They will overcome, for sure. They always do, but this time it's my honest and heartfelt request to all those who I know love them as much as I do, that if we can, we do what we can to help them get back on their feet. I ask because they would never ask.
