SHE WILL ALWAYS BE A QUEEN TO ME......

http://mycrazylifeasanavywife.blogspot.com/


MY MOTHER WAS A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN


SHE GREW UP WITH A NAME THAT FIT HER PERFECTLY....QUEEN!!

I loved everything about her.
I loved the way she talked
I loved the way she smelled
I loved the way she loved me 


She was smart, insightful, creative and beautiful. A college educated woman that helped others get their G.E.D.
A short woman with a lot of FIRE!! She was no push-over. A great debater, articulate and well-spoken.

She taught me about the arts and gave me the chance to see my first live play on Broadway. After seeing the WIZ I felt empowered and confident that I could be anything! I didn't realize it back then, but she was exposing me to various cultures so that my eyes could see the possibilities.

Today as a mother of three children myself, I continue to educate my kids just as Queen did all those years ago...


I know that she would have been proud of me...







I have two older sisters and my mom raised three very different, independent girls. A trait that today she would be most proud of. Still, There is a piece of her in each of us that can never be denied. My oldest sister Wanda has the most beautiful eyes just as my mother did.

My sister Juanita is highly educated with a thirst for knowledge that mimics my mother on her very best day.





And myself, Well, all I have to do is look in the mirror. I am so proud to be the daughter of such a divine spirit. I can only say that my grandmother had perfect insight to name her QUEEN because...

  1. My Mother taught me so much growing up in Chicago...She taught me to always THINK AHEAD... That is one of the greatest lessons that I have kept close to my heart all of these years... I always think about tomorrow and how what I do RIGHT NOW will impact my tomorrow. She was the STRONGEST PERSON that I have ever met....She was not very tall but had a presence every time she stepped into the room. She had some amazing qualities that I admire..Finally, SHE LOVED ME and I truly felt that love daily... so my message today is to love your children DEEPLY and set in motion a chain of memories that will last your kids for many years to come..... At the age of 42 I still rely on the advice and words my mother spoke so many years ago... God Bless and have a great week.
