My Super Heroes

On this day a hero was born. My super hero. My mother. 




My mom lost her battle with cancer four years ago and I lost a big part of myself. I am no stranger to loss. My family was dealt a devastating blow in 2004 with the very unexpected loss of my big sister, my mom's first born. She left behind three little lives. Three little lives that had to survive without their own hero, their mother.  



 I've found comfort in a very special song by Marvin Sapp titled My Testimony

Experienced loss at a major cost
But I never lost faith in You
So if you see me cry
It's just a sign that I'm still alive 
I've got some scars but I'm still alive
In spite of calamity
He still has a plan for me 
And it's working for my good
And it's building My Testimony 


On this day I remember and celebrate My Super Heroes - my mom and sister. 




Happy Birthday Mama


Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal...
