From our Week 3 “Celebrating the inspiring women in our lives” discussion series, most of you shared the strong impressions your mothers have had on your lives. You identified key character traits that you aspire to develop within you over time. I too echo in the impact my mother (Rosaline) continues to have on my life. Her strength, faith, generous, selfless, and lively spirit inspires me to always give wholeheartedly in all that I do. This is why you will always see a smile from ear-to-ear as I continue work on the New AGE (African Girl Evolution) Project.  My mother is and will always be my inspiration to nurture beauty everywhere I go.

Rather than share a summary of the discussion threads, I would like to share with you the beautiful writings from an African Mother with a beautiful and passionate spirit…Enjoy!

             Happy Women’s Day

 

A day to look within you, and realize your beauty.
Woman, the force of the Home.
Your God-given strength is so amazing.
 
You can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
You hold happiness, love, and opinions.
You still find a place in your heart to smile to make problems look easier! You sing when you feel like crying.
 
Woman the stronghold of the family, Church, and society.
Your cry should not be ignored, because
you laugh when you are afraid just to find peace.
Your love is unconditional: Motherly – Yes.
 
Strive to be you; no matter the ups and downs of life.
Your God sees; and His beloved son Jesus is always there.
Feel Him and Trust Him with your prayers; all will be well.
 
If you have no courage to approach Christ, His mother
(Mama Mary) is always ready to Intercede for you… Amen.
~~~~~ 
Happy Women’s Day:
To all my beautiful sisters / friends of the world!

Love, Peace and Hope
