You Must....

She is prob one of the strongest...most beautiful women I know....dark skin...beautiful inside and out...and she had just given birth to a new life...brought a wonderful little girl into this crazy world and I couldn't do anything but respect....respect how she brought this lady into the world...circumstances not ideal...she struggled with a mental disability....she was single and this just wasn't in the plan....never was...prob still wouldn't be but here she was...head held high....shoulders back...comin through looking more and more beautiful as the months go by...as the little ladies grow...both her and her mother....

I loved seeing her dedication...she had made a choice and was committed to that choice....I loved how she graciously and gracefully excepted help from her team...her squad....she did her thing and gave birth to a beautiful little lady and a few months in...I called and asked her how it was going...how she was adjusting and adapting to this new things called motherhood...and that beautiful women...beautiful soul laid it all the way down for me....

Although she wasn't fully "there" mentally...she was determined not to let this opportunity pass her by....she explained that her mother was kind of over-shadowing her and wouldn't really let her be a "mother".....but she was NOT having that....she wanted to learn how to care for herself...her baby...how to do things on her own without anyone....she knew that eventually.....it could be like that...she could be alone...with her baby girl and not know where to start.....she even knew of someone that had let that happen...had let her mother do so much and handle so much....and suddenly her mother was gone and so was her life....and she..again was NOT having it....

One of the wonderful things I learned from this young women and people like her, is that your situation has nothing to do with how much you can do in life.....nothing can stop you from accomplishing things but you and anyone that you allow to stop you...to distract you....

I know for a fact that that little lady and her little baby are going to make it and going to do well...I know that little girl has a mama that is going to show her that no matter what....you can and you must....
