Day 3: I am thankful for Ruby & Jewel. How blessed was I to have two amazing grandmothers. Not only did these women spoil me rotten but they displayed amazing signs of strength.Even in days of illness they still remain positive and viewed the glass as being half full. They always had a smile and though in pain and not in the best of spirits not once did they complain. These ladies also instilled in me a great sense of fashion. They indeed were fly. When in doubt I think about their struggles and I am soon inspired to keep pushing.
Day 4: I am thankful the inventor of wig/weave. Yea I thought I would be silly today. But really I am thankful for a good weave/wig. Lord knows wigs/weaves allow me to transition through all my many personas and phases. Not everyone can rock a wig/weave well…. I am thankful to be one that knows how to make it work.
Day 5: I am thankful for the talent of writing. Writing has many times being therapeutic for me. Writing to me is an outlet to express my most craziest of thoughts. It’s also an outlet to get out all the crazy situations I have had people talk to me about and/or experienced. Writing gives me a voice to tell the story of many women who have held things in for fear of being judged. My writing allows me to be me.
Day 6: On this day I am just thankful to have awaken in a warm bed and a smile upon my face. This weekend I have been pampered to the utmost. Of all the treats I have had this weekend I am thankful for those that took part in making me smile and making this one of the best weekends in a while.
