This woman, Mama Jennifer, has been a part of my life from such a young age that she pre-dates my conscious memories. She was my grandmother’s best-friend, she was at the first birthday party that I can recall, she has always done the “right thing” by the moral and ethical standards by which I was raised.
She may curse you out, she may take 45 minutes of your time and try to educate you, she may sit back and observe how you react, she may say something that offends you... What I can say is that after my grandmother passed, after my father passed, after I was old enough to realize how unhealthy it was for me to continue allowing my mother to affect my happiness and success, after my extended family began to turn their backs on me.... she has been there, reminding me of who I am and who I’ve always wanted and aspired to be.
I’m beyond lucky that she was willing and able to come back into my life at my absolute lowest moment, and in a few short weeks she’s watched me go from having absolutely no desire to live to the beginning of new chances, new opportunities, new adventures and new life.
It’s a beautiful and a powerful privilege to have a force like this in my life. Not only for the inspiration, guidance and centering - but to have a reminder of the pillars life I’ve been able to experience in my time.
She better not go NOWHERE! 😜
Mama Jennifer(@danielsgammy), it’s been such a blessing...
