Happy Birthday Nay!
Thank you for always being up to something ~ many things. Things that are interesting & exciting, that will make a difference for people & add beauty to our world.
Thank you for my life. For My Brothers who are so Perfect & Amazing. For being the Lola that the boys talk to & share with every single night in their sleeps. For all of it.
For always telling us that
"'We were made in God's image' doesn't mean 'we have 2 hands, 2 eyes, 2 ears & a nose.' It means you have a head of your own, can think your own thoughts & make your own decisions."
Thank you for reminding me that to think & grow is a divine act. That it's good to change our minds & our actions. It's important to question. For being such a whole example of a woman, a community leader, an entrepreneur, a wife, a working mother, a healer, a gardner, a chef & an artist.
It would be a lot to live up to, but you never made that an option I'd have to deal with. You always made sure to let us be ourselves, trying out systems & abandoning anything that was irrelevant.
Thank you for making sure we were always loved, that we always knew it. We do know it. It's in our every cell. I love you. Me
