It feels awkward not having my grandmothers here to call, just because they were on my mind, and to celebrate their birthdays and holidays.

I miss trying to find just the right floral arrangement and gifts for them. I miss their smiles and laughs. I miss their side eye when I would get “beside” myself. I miss hearing them tell about their past, their hopes and dreams, and the wisdom passed to me as counsel. I miss them dearly.

Happy Mother’s Day to my maternal grandmother, Maxine B. Stephens, and my paternal grandmother, Dorrisene N. Foreman. I know that you’re here but I wish that you were HERE to hug and hold hands.

I love you Mamacine and Mama!!!!!!!!

Love always, near and far…

I would like to wish all of the mothers of the world, a Happy Mother’s Day.

You may have birthed a child that you’re currently embracing and enjoying the day with, or one who lives far away but you’re only a phone call away from saying “I love you”.

You may have birthed a child that has transitioned, and is no longer here in the physical sense.

You may have birthed a child that you chose to give a better life than the one that you felt you could provide, so you lovingly placed them for adoption—-to bless another mother who had been waiting to share her gifts and blessings for a special soul, such as your bundle of joy.

You may have carried life within, for that life to cease, without you ever laying your eyes upon theirs.

You may have or had a desire to give birth to your own child, but through no fault of your own your body isn’t aligning with your dreams and goals—so you decided to pour your mothering love into a child whose been waiting just for you. Through your fostering or adoption, you are investing in and empowering them in ways that only a mother could.

Maybe you have been trying for years to get pregnant and now you sit and wonder, what will you do next. You know at your core that you’re a mother. Yes, you are!

To every mother described above and to every mother example that I overlooked, let me honor you today and every day.

Happy Mother’s Day Queens!

I salute you!!! ๐Ÿ’–

Lovingly,

Natasha

Words cannot truly and fully express the way I feel about my mom. There’s not another woman in the world like her.

Her strength cannot be weighed. Her courage cannot be measured. Her determination is endless. Her caring and love is limitless. She’s truly a giver. She gives with absolutely no expectation of others. She does not harp upon or remind you of her giving. Once it’s done she simply moves forward with another loving act for you or someone else.

My mom’s selflessness is beautiful, yet there are times I agonize over how much she does for others and it goes unappreciated. I would and will do anything in the world to stand in support beside this great woman. She’s never stopped believing in me and my sister, and I will never stop believing and trusting in her. My mom loves her daughters, her family, unconditionally. Our cup truly overflows with her love and care.

She sees a silver lining when others just see doom and gloom clouds. When others spew negativity, my mom combats the words with positivity and hope. I don’t know where I would be or what I would do without my mom. God knew exactly what He was doing when He entrusted her with me and my sister. He knew the sacrifices she would make, the lessons she would teach, how she would keep us connected to Him, and that she would never ever ever curse us or turn her backs on us.
God knew that His daughter Gwen would spend each day lifting her children up praising His name, rather than waste moments tearing us down disrespecting Him and His image. I love, respect, value, and care so deeply for my mother. I live each day to honor God and my human father and mother. The three of them had a talk 41 years ago, and none of them have reneged on their agreement.

I’m blessed to have Gwen Foreman as my mom and #1 supporter. I love you mom!!
