In music, we’ve had many women who have given us songs of empowerment: Aretha, Chaka, Whitney, Dolly, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, Janet. I could go on and on. In the beginning I wasn’t a big Mary J. Blige fan, but she has grown on me over the years. Her message is always straight forward based on her experiences and she always try to empower and lift up her sisters, regardless of their race, education or income level. It is mind boggling the things our bodies endure to equip us to be mothers. No matter what the circumstance we have to find strength, power and courage to rise, to maintain and get through. The body this morning is a little run down, but my spirit is strong and unwavering. Today, this morning “you can’t hold a good woman down”.
Make magic today. Find a rainbow in the smallest situation. Take time to make someone’s day by a smile, comment or small gesture. Skip to the beat. Laugh out loud. Peace and blessings until next week. #amwriting
