Joanie is extra captivating this season, giving us some absolutely magnificent ponytail fierceness.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
I see Egypt in her eyes and Sudan in her skin
I see Somalia in her face and Zimbabwe in her waist
I see the Congo in her thighs and Ghana in her hips
I see Senegal in her hair and Nigeria in her lips
I see Rwanda in her walk and Kenya in her dance
I see Uganda in her grace and Liberia in her smile
I see Sierra Leone in her will and Mali in her poise
I see Africa in her heart
It is entirely possible that behind the perception of our senses, worlds are hidden of which we are unaware.
Julia is six months old and I still can’t believe it. There is no doubt in my mind that being a mother to this awesome baby girl is the best part about life. I might have rolled my eyes at that notion a few years ago, because I felt entirely fulfilled. Now I think I had barely started charting the land and sea of my life. Julia arrived and suddenly my world became a universe—I looked up and saw the stars for the first time. Dazzling, terrifying, and inspiring all at once.
Today we celebrated Julia’s first Easter. It was a perfect day. In her basket she found a soft sheep, a knit chick, a small birdie comfort blanket, bubbles, a Dora the Explorer light up toy, and a set of brightly colored socks. We hunted for easter eggs together but the candy is for mom and dad.
The day could not have been possible without my amazing sister. Hope everyone had a lovely day.
