So Yesterday was Mother’s Day, I was setting up to shut down all of my Social Media outlets and just live in my head all day. Losing my Mother earlier this year has left a huge hole in my heart that I can not explain.
To my surprise yesterday was pretty freaking awesome to say the least. I went to Church which I was planning to do anyway, my Pastor’s presented me with a beautiful Bouquet of Flowers. They shared a bit of my journey with the congregation and the whole entire moment made me feel like a bag of cuddly Kittens.
I then proceeded to visit my Mother’s Grave site and on the way there, my Best Friend called me and invited me out to Brunch with her family. What was supposed to be an Afternoon gathering then rolled into the Evening, we ended up back at her house laughing, talking about Life, Boys and singing along to Bruno Mars and Beyonce at the top of our lungs along side our miracle Kiddos Aniyah and Jordan.
I came home later that night with my Daughter in toe, looked around at our quiet little Apartment and smiled. It was in that moment my O I realized my life is VERY Blessed.
I have Friends that are closer than Family, I have love in some of the truest forms you can think of and each day my purpose becomes a little more clearer to me. I miss my Mother there is no getting around that, but she gave me the gift of Joy, Love and left behind an amazing Community of which I can share my life. For that along with many other things she has Blessed me with to her I am eternally grateful. Thank you my dear sweet Mommy Angel Sonia “Elaine” Reid.
My Mother’s Day was Lovely!!! …and I must say so was my Style!
Yes you saw correctly, this Dress has pockets baby!! Eshakti sent me this Dress earlier this year, I customized it myself which is one of the amazing features when you purchase from this company. I was able to get the length that I wanted which makes this Dress the perfect Spring Brunch ensemble. Flirty enough to get noticed, yet professional enough for them to pay attention. Definitely one of my favourites for this season.
