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!!! 💖

I found this quote online and had to share it. I couldn’t selfishly keep it to myself. I know there’s countless females around the world who would also benefit from these words. The source of the quote is unknown, but that’s okay, because ultimately it comes from above and it’s filled with love!
As a woman, there’s a heavy burden placed upon us. Society has an image of us that they try to bind us to, and no matter how hard we resist their ‘box’, they still won’t stop trying to shove us in it. That’s why we can’t afford to slack off and be beaten down and broken. We must stand tall and speak clearly, unwavering and determined.
Today I dedicate this message to all of the young, maturing, and seasoned women in the world. To the princesses and to the queens, this message is for you. For the teenage girls entering womanhood, this message is for you.
This may be a “man’s world”, but women make it go ’round. Don’t you ever forget that. Don’t you ever buy the story being sold that would diminish your role and importance in this life. Don’t you ever drink the koolaid that would have you to believe that you are less than a man. God made women carriers of life for a reason.
Keep your head up, eyes focused, and heart warm. Your feet will follow. Stay centered on goodness and expect nothing but greatness.
That ceiling will come tumbling down. Those barriers will crash. Those limitations will grow smaller. Those “isms” will begin to lose their power and influence. We’ve come a long way. We’re not turning back or giving up. We can only be defeated when we surrender. We will NOT surrender!
I love you all!
