(Abridged) Diary Entry 3-18-2015
“…Tomorrow, Lord be willing would have been my biological mother’s birthday…I pray she is resting from all her labors (in You now). My biological sister “M” called this morning to say hello. If I didn’t take the call, then I would have not known nor remembered that our mother’s birthday was coming up. I probably would have walked right through it.”
“She was a beautiful woman who God blessed to bear my she and my father’s union seven beautiful children. All of us with the exception of my eldest brother, Prince Edward are still alive and fighting the good fight of faith. I don’t know much about her other than she would bake brownies for my elder sister “M” and that she reportedly would take her to Tupperware parties.
“She also suffered horrifically from paranoid schizophrenia. Her story is like an aged fine wine at it’s peak now ripe for the times and ready to be aired…even poured out.”
I dedicate this song to her. One of my other elder sister CJ, (may God rest her soul also) told me that it was one of her favorite songs. Rest in peace mom…mommy. Amen.
