My Mother’s Day felt a little magical. I know that sounds dramatic but there were such big moments and relaxed intimate family pauses that shaped the whole day. The morning started with the hubster making me breakfast in bed accompanied by my sweet homemade gifts given by bright and proud smiling faces. Victoria played her guitar and sang me a song by Taylor Swift, The Best Day, that is provided on the side for those who would like to hear. (By Taylor not Tori…LOL) It was so sweet, I cried…then she cried and we both had a difficult time getting through the song. We all got dressed after and went to church to see another big first. My husband sang with the men’s group in the choir for our Mother’s Day program. I periodically get overwhelmed as I watch new steps taken in my husbands walk with the Lord, this was one of them. Later we had dinner at church prepared by the men. I got to set down right away and have my plate brought to ME! I did feel a little quilty seeing my children hungrily watch me eat before they were allowed to get their meals. I am sure they were not traumatized by the event. Once we got home it was a nap and snuggle time. Ahhhhh. I will always cherish those moments gifted to me by my tribe.
The History of Us

I wrote a story prompted by my writing group. It's about church, community and racism. Since I published it on my blog I have had so many people reach out with the same shared experience. It's been comforting. Then I found out there is a whole movement of people sharing their stories of leaving church spaces that refuse to respond to racism and injustice. Thank you @thewitnessbcc.

Too close? Just making sure ya'll see these curls. Had my favorite curly girl expert @torrensalicia cut the back of my hair (looser curl pattern) even with the tightly coiled girls at the top. Love the shape that was created. Ima release the desire of length for a fuller style. #curlygirlmethod #natural #innersence
Do not fear. Do not look at the seen but that unseen. Keep your eyes on things above. What is happening in the earth realm is not the end of the story. #kingdomminded #hopeishere #ihearthesoundofvictory #drybonesrattling #elevation
