I woke up this morning completely overwhelmed on how much I am thankful for my children. Dre and Devin are everything to me and are my driving force behind everything I do. As I continue to watch them grow into young men I could not be happier on who they are becoming. I am the proudest mother in the entire world. I love you so much Dre and Devin.
Momdukes you are what’s inside of me. My bold and fearless attitude definitely comes from you. You raised me through the toughest situations and made me very strong at an early age. I take the lessons you taught me and apply them to my life everyday. I wouldn’t change a damn thing about how I grew up. It was meant for us to go through the shit we went thru. It’s what kept me striving to do my best in school. You always push for me and my sibling to be better than you and I’m thankful for that Mom. Today you are still my favorite person to talk too. You are my mother and father wrapped up and to one amazing woman.
Sean and Zenid I have to talk to ya’ll everyday. I feel like we were always close but as we became adults we grew even closer. Ya’ll are my favorite drinking buddy’s! I can call either one of you about anything and you never judge me. Sometimes it is necessary to have a listening ear. When I need to get anything done ya’ll always make time to help me out. I’m super grateful for that. Sean you’ve done so much for me and my family over the years and I never want you to think I don’t appreciate it because I do. You have taking my down a path that is only going to make my future stronger. Thanks for opening my eyes. Kobe Jenkins we really be trippin. When we are together it is just us…Zenid and Geri. That explains enough lmao.
I’m thankful for my kid’s father because he is the reason I have such wonderful boys in my life. He will always have my respect. I’m glad that no matter what happened in the past we are able to pull together and raise our boys without all the negativity that most people in our situation have. We make a great parenting team.
Latrice, Janelle, Myeisha, and Tasia. I love ya’ll heffa to death! Loyalty in women is a rare quality to find and I got that with ya’ll. It’s been a big year for us. We have been doing what we’ve been planning to do from the start. Our progress is only growing. I’m find a little bit of myself and each of you. I couldn’t ask for better women to be my best friends. I love ya’ll and I hope ya’ll are ready to take shit to the next level. The Fab Five HA!
I want to thank my love. You have been there through everything; every emotion and thought. Honestly you are someone that I can not live without. Our love would never allow me to live life without. I am so thankful that you came into my life when you did. I know how you feel about me and you know how I feel about you so that’s all that matters. I love you.
