Before I dive into the great food we are eating today or hit up any of the Black Friday sales, I want to share.
The entire week due to Thanksgiving Day, the question has continuously been asked, “what are you thankful for?” Honestly, you would miss all of your Thanksgiving festivities if I shared everything that I am thankful for. I can truthfully say that God has blessed me with so much, not just with things but with wisdom and people (including most of you).
Aside from the obvious being life, I am most thankful for my children. I thank God daily for blessing me with two amazing children. I feel so honored to wear the title of mother and I do not take it lightly at all. Everyday, I ask God to guide me in order to assure that I give my children what every parent should give their children; roots to grow and wings to soar.
While today is Thanksgiving, it is extra special because on this day 13 years ago; God blessed me with a beautiful baby girl. Yes!!! Today is my mini me Daja’s birthday. She is officially a teenager and while I have great anxiety about her growing up, I look forward to it.
Motherhood opened my eyes to a lot and I have amazing connections with both my children; however having Daja as my daughter rocks my world. She is so strong and bold, she flaunts so many of my characteristics. The great thing about Daja is that I see in her now what it took me many years to become.
It is my belief that as women, we are responsible for the uplift of our sisters (women) and daughters (girls). It warms my heart to encourage and empower women but to share these moments with my own daughter is amazing. I say share because it has not just been me feeding her soul, she has fed mine too. I have been down and this young soul has encouraged me with words you would expect from a seasoned woman.
So to make what could be the longest post ever short… Help me wish my daughter Daja? a Happy Glow Day and pray that her light never dims.
And to you and your family, I wish you peace and blessings.
