Today’s Words of Wisdom: A Mother’s Love…

MothersLove I am who I am today because of the guidance, dedication, devotion, and sometimes heavy handed lessons, that I received from the many mothers in my life.  I learned a long time ago that life’s journey is only as rich and as colorful as the people you encounter, and the lessons learned, along the way.  I owe a great deal of my journey and life’s successes to my mother, grandmother, aunts, sister friends, sorority sisters, and mentors who have been and or continue to be in my life.   They are all beautiful women who truly know the meaning of faith, pain, sacrifice, and unconditional love.

A-Mother's-Love

To  Patricia Ann Barnes, my mom;  Geraldine Barnes and Thomasina Ivey, my dearly departed Grandmother’s;  Estraleita Anderson, Darren Ivey, Pamela Smith, and Regina Hudson, my Aunts; Naomi Barnes, my sister;  Rie Maiden, my friend;  Richlyn Neal, my sister-in-law, the many mothers of R.O.T.D., Lambda Psi, and Apalachin Alumnae, my sisters of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc; my colleagues, and so many more, I wish you a blessed and very Happy Mother’s Day!  I would like to thank each of you for the work you do in the tireless and thankless job that is being a mother.  I hope that one day I am granted the opportunity to be a mother as wonderful as each of you!

Being a mother may not always bring you riches or fame, but being a mother is a gift only a few lucky ones are blessed to attain!

If your Christianity puts more stock in access to guns, Building a wall, hoarding millions/billions of dollars and ending a woman’s right to choice than it does to feeding the hungry, providing access to those fleeing violence and poverty, ending mass incarceration and gun violence, and making sure that all babies/children have access to everything they need to thrive throughout their entire life— it’s not Christianity. My God is woke and is a staunch advocate for social justice for all; but especially the babies— that’s real Christianity!!!! Please call this cultish epidemic by its true name “evangelical White Supremacy” overwhelmingly predicated by White males; with its current leader occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC
#NAACPConvention Day 1 outtakes. The art of ... “Mix, Mingle, Glow. Stretch beyond your own comfort zone to speak with, sit with, and start conversations with people whom you do not know. Take the initiative to help other people capture the spotlight and shine.” —#SusanCYoung
“Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.” —#PabloCasals. Kem’s music definitely strums heartstrings. #NAACPConvention #NAACP110 #Favorites
