    What I got from this is that even when the chips are down you appreciate what you do have, making the most of it as best you can. Keep forging ahead So'ja.

    thank you poets

    sista WATZ- it's do or die the rules of the universe are simple but yet so complex thank you sis

    ASP - thank you for feeling the intrigue, yes you must stay focused but what to focus on is where one might lose focus

    TRINITI424 - thank you but my story is your story everybody has a story
    and some have battle scars to go with the story

    whether those scars be physical, mental or spiritual

    GIVING FIRST BACK TO OUR WOMEN​

    DOING THE GROUND WORK
    MOVING WITH THE GRACE

    ALWAYS STRONG
    IN WILL AND COURAGE
