Humble beginnings. My Fathers Daughter.
I’m not one to talk in depth of my past.
I admire those that are free enough to do so.
I can tell you this...
I was blessed with a mother and father who were there and laid the ground for strong morals.
I am forever grateful of the woman that I grew to be because of the life lessons that I had.
I did not always follow the path that was given to me. I was also not blessed with a perfect childhood and I did not come out unscathed.
However, once I saw that my life was getting away from me, I was able to real myself back in because of those life lessons of my parents.
My fathers role was immeasurable.
Being a humble man who was a father and provider was the most important to him.
He always said he wanted us to learn the value of working for ourselves and having our own.
He did not want to see us scratching to get by for someone else’s dream.
That was especially the visual he wanted to leave for my brothers.
At times I’d wished I was born a boy, just so that he could see that I was strong too and that I could do all of those things that he asked of them.
I realize that I am still working to prove that today.
There was no one else like him. He was a force within himself. He was committed, a provider, a go getter, and a spiritually connected man.
He was not perfect, as non of us are.
But his example made it possible for me to recognize a great man when I see one.
I am blessed with my phenomenal husband @ohsnapjbsmoove because of that.
Seeing my husband with his daughter, my bonus child @j.brooks21 reminds me of those times I had with my Dad.
I would not be with any man that were not there for their child in such a way.
I am grateful for the very life of my father, for if it were not for him, I would not be here carrying on the legacy to better this world.
Thank you God! Thank you universe!
Thank you Father! Happy Father’s Day!
I love you so much!
