    I want to take this opportunity to say happy mother’s day to all our wonderful mothers. Here is a piece that I found just to honor you.

    I AM THE BLACK WOMAN

    Proud of my heritage
    My skin caramel and smooth
    My family's hopes and dreams
    Lying on my shoulders and in my heart

    I AM THE BLACK WOMAN

    Disciplinarian and father when needed;
    Proud of the black man
    In all his struggles
    They’re for support, strength, guidance and love;
    Love that comes from the heart unconditionally

    I AM THE BLACK WOMAN

    Able to take lives hard knocks
    Yet stand firm
    God fearing and staying in the spiritual fight

    I AM THE BLACK WOMAN

    Raising my black children to remember
    The struggles of our ancestors
    And to strive and reach for the stars;
    Being the example of what can be done
    And not of what can't
    Always looking forward but never forgetting
    From whence they came

    I AM THE BLACK WOMAN

    Supporting my sister in all ways not just one
    Feeling her hurt, and doing something about it
    They’re to listen and not to criticize
    Here to love her for she and I are one

    I AM THE BLACK WOMAN

    To all the mothers (and future mothers) at Destee.com, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

    Also, a special shout out to those of us who's mothers have made that transition and are really missing them right about now.
