September 24, 1950..That is the day that my mother was born.
QUEEN ESTHER CHANDLER.....
I loved everything about her. I loved the way she talked the way she smelled and 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 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.
|QUEEN ESTHER CHANDLER 1965|
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 she is and always will be a QUEEN to me.
My mother was the most beautiful and Inspiring woman I have ever known.
She remains the source of my inspiration and continues to be a symbol of love and strength in my everyday life. I am not sad today as I celebrate her birthday because I know that one day I will see her beautiful smile once again..
As I celebrate Mother’s birthday and the excellence of her life, I am reminded of my duty to give my own children the benefit of her tender heart.
I love you Mom
Happy Birthday to my mother Queen Esther Chandler who died much to young.
