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!

Rest in power @repcummings. Today we are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Congressman Elijah Cummings, a true mentor for so many Black Millennials and a staunch advocate for equity and racial justice. Our hearts go out to his family and congressional district. #BMCSpotlight #BMCMovement
Today was a hectic day, but one of the highlights was being surprised by one of my Grads with a special treat for #NationalBossDay; that I honestly didn’t even know about. Our team has expanded and i’m so very grateful that’s it’s filled with phenomenal people. #nationalbossday
So proud of my soror, @ladyangela124, the Democratic Candidate for Binghamton City Council 3rd District. She is truly phenomenal. Check out her campaign at @friendsofangelariley.
“I’ll always fight for these stories. I’m invested in portraying the full human experience, especially for people that look like me.” — Ruben Santiago-Hudson. It was such an honor meeting and learning from the accomplished Ruben Santiago-Hudson this week as a part of our “Not for Nothing Other: African American Portrayals 1930s to today” exhibit and series of events. It has been a true pleasure collaborating with the team on this exhibit and experiences. The talent, the stories, the full reflection of African Americans as full and whole human beings is something you truly have to experience. Don’t miss this exhibit running in the Binghamton University Art Musuem now until Dec 2019. #MyBlackisBeautiful #Creativist #BlackArt #BlackLivesMatter
Forever in our hearts, my 62. Saying goodbye to our LS was one of the hardest things we’ve ever done, but we did it in true ROTD form. Helping to carry the load and spending time with my Sorors and Chi’s family helped us to feel just a little closer to Chi. Thank you to all of our #LovelyLambdaPsi and #DST1913 Sorors, UF Alumni, friends and family that helped us celebrate the life of Chi this past weekend. Chi will live on through us and the Tanya Chiaka Aslanda Oparah Educational Fund, which has raised over $7000. Our deepest love and appreciation!
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” - @theoutrageonline. #TheSquad definitely leads with immense passion for our community and collective progress! #CBCFALC19 with my @BMCMovement Team was definitely a wonderful experience. Meeting these phenomenal women leaders in the movement was one of my favorite moments. Three members of The Squad met, only @repocasiocortez left. #BMCatCBC #BMCMovement #WomenLead #BlackWomenLead

I have no words, my heart is broken. LS, we shared a name and so many other connections. You were our collective encourager, motivator and champion. Rest well Tanya Chiaka Oparah. I will love you always! #RIP #ROTD66 #LovelyLambdaPsi #DST1913 #FLoREDa #UFAlumni
Reflections. “Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once.” — Audrey Hepburn. #QOTD
