Today I dedicate this post to my Mommy! Yes I still call her Mommy! I am who I am because of who she is. She is such a free spirit, always evolving into something more beautiful than before.
I am proud of her in so many ways! She is writing a book about her life and what a life she has had but the awesome thing about her, is that through it all she continued to trust God and taught me to do the same. I think the biggest mistakes some parents make is hiding the truth from their children, kids find out anyways! My mom was the opposite, if she wanted to cry she would, if she was angry we knew it but in those moments she would always turn to God. We would join hands and pray and believe God and He would show up EVERY TIME!
She is the reason I know God, the reason I know to trust Him in every storm, the reason I am who I am. She allowed me to grow freely in who I am.
I love writing and sharing my life mainly because she taught me that! She writes poetry and is always asked to do speaking engagements! And funny because so many people look at her one-sided but I have had the pleasures of seeing every side of her! And I know that God gave her to me!
She writes me love notes and the funny thing is, I would always write her little notes as a child. And in her book she is including a lot of things me and my siblings have written to her.
Just last week, I found this picture she gave me. It’s now hanging in my room!
If you don’t have anything to give people, give them your words and your love, those are the things that last in life!
Love you Mommy,
Ms. Karen Minor-2nd Born
