We got this 

  
I’m tellin my babies 

When they look to me with those curious eyes 

We got this 

No need to worry 

No cause to cry 

Belief brewed from deep inside 

See these mamas eyes?

Full of confidence and a hard earned pride 

Hush my little babies

We got this 

The world is full of scary monsters 

And I know you have seen 

More than I wanted for my son and my daughter 

Now is your season to be showered..

Love and smiles 

Like sun soaked viles 

Filling our home with warmth and radiance 

We got this thing!

My babies 

Now rest your precious little heartbeats

“Men have the drive to provide for their family- it fuels their being. This is something a woman just does not understand”. 

-Random Person

Whaaaaat?!! Is this really the belief in current circulation? That is more of a rhetorical question. I am not here to battle or call anyone out. I am here to share about this woman (ah hem…me) and maybe shed some light on dusty minds…

  
  

I understand 

The drive

The passion

Every pulse of this being 

Beating through my breath and body 

Is a mama warrior fighting 

Forget the ladder

And crush that glass ceiling 

Baby, I am outside your window 

Scaling that sky scraping building 

Full time, part time, side jobs…

One, two, sometimes…

Three jobs

Earning my stripes 

Throw my suit in the “provider” fight 

So, with all due respect 

Sir…

Yes- I do understand 

The drive to provide for my family

For when I rip my skin

It bleeds red, white 

And them! 

   
 

Reality Wednesday 

I wish each post I presented could be positive and uplifting. But then life happens and I become the sun closing my eyes behind a curtain of clouds. All I feel is grey. I call it a funk or a slump. But that is life isn’t it? Not everyday is sidewalk skipping, sometimes we trip and fall- sometimes…I get right back up and other times, I lay there, against a scalding backbone and wait for my legs to regain strength. 

Either way, I have promised myself to be honest and authentic in this place– a collision of words from a spirit that is overcoming. And overcoming is quite a journey :)) 

  
Recently I had a slump funk and I shared it with my family here. I am overcome with love, moved by your words and truth. I read my messages and think “oh my gosh these people are incredible. They truly listen and they truly care”. So I want to thank each one of you…

Thank you so much for helping me! 

  

You are all my superheroes, armed with love and kindness, helping to rescue this souldiers sadness. 

I appreciate my family here so much. 

Today I say to each one of you:           You completely rock!!

So go now and rock on with your badass gorgeous unique selves! 

Love ya, SG
