Congratulations !!!!!!

I am overjoyed as this week my baby girl nadia graduated from talent Unlimited High school.

She is an amazing intelligent young lady …… who is talented beyond my wildest dreams , has the voice of an angel and has made me so proud…


she will be continuing her college education at spelman college in the fall as a freshman. Where she will continue to be amazing, hardworking, dedicated woman she has become.
They have been my reason to live


My inspiration my motivation and at times my salvation.


Now I prepare myself, as my baby girl is preparing to go off to spelman college in Georgia
I’m again overjoyed as this school was mat easy to get into and it was a major accomplishment… and validation that hard work does pay off
I’m in this moment heart broken as this means she will be going off to Georgia and out of my reach
Well steph I guess it will be you waking me up and helping me find my keys….lol
But really

For you guys who don’t know us

It has always been three


It has always been us

It has always been the two of them 


We are always together 

They are always together

They grew up together

Now they’ll be apart for the first time in 16 years
I love these young ladies endlessly 

I’m proud to call them my daughters

I’ll always be there for them

A Mothers Love

A Mothers Love
A mothers love never dies

It cocoons and shields you while you are growing

It cushions you from all your bumps and bruises when you are falling

It smoothly wipes away your tears when you are crying

And hangs around and comforts you even when you think you are dying

It’s that cloak that you are wrapped in that offers invincibility

She’s the first one to make you think that anything is possible and that you can change the world

It’s the thing present for all major events or milestones in your life, whether it’s a graduation, birthday, or when you’ve choosen to take a husband or wife

Even if she’s not there physically, she’s still with you because she is in your heart and all around you

That feeling that you are special,

When you just know that you are loved

When you know your possibilities are endless

And just have that feeling deep inside that every thing is going to be alright

That all began with your mother’s love

So I say Thank you to all the mothers out there

But especially to my mom

Happy Mother’s Day
