17 years ago I was blessed to give birth to a wonderful set of twin boys. Over the past 17 year I have done the best I could to raise them into the young men they are today.

17 years of single parenting has taught be so much about myself. I’ve learned patience with my darn self. I’ve learned to make mistakes then forgive myself. I’ve learned to be present in my children’s lives no matter what. I’ve learned to trust God on a whole new level.

As wonderful as this journey has been, 17 years ago I lost myself. I spent more time being “THAT” mom; that I forgot to be present for myself.

I went into hiding so to speak.

When you get a chance, watch the movie called “Joy” starring Jennifer Lawrence about a woman who helped everyone except herself. I was a moving that hit home and shook my to my very core. For my boys birthday I mark it as a time of reclaiming myself.

I am coming out of hiding.

What about you?

Much love,

Black Mama
