Sixty With Spice...
Feisty, energetic, lively, and hilarious! She is my heart and my everything! She holds nothing back, never bites her tongue, and this Aries makes no apologies for who she is.
On this Fab Friday, I'm featuring none other than Frieda Seals, my queen, my mother! She taught me what it meant to be strong, beautiful, and courageous.
My mother was the first person who told me I was beautiful. And when I doubted, she told me that if I didn't believe I was beautiful and think the world of myself, who else would.
When the world seemed to be against her, she stood strong with her back against the wind, not letting it break her down. She fought every last one of our battles, until we were old enough to fight our own. Then she stood in the background cheering us on and helping us through our own personal battles.
She was the one who introduced me to my first love, books. Patiently reading to me until I learned to do it at the tender age of four, her patience knew no bounds. Encouraging that first love of mine, she always took me to the library to continue to fan the flames of my passion.
Many rainy days or afternoons were spent on the bed with my mom reading books. The boredom most children experienced on those type days, I did not understand. There was no better way to spend a day than lying next to my mother, as we both read our books. Excitement filled me up each time we exchanged library books when I became a teenager, proving to me that our tastes were very similar.
Her imagination allowed her to create the most intriguing and engaging stories. Something I know all too well.
So this day, Friday, April 8th, I praise the Lord Almighty for blessing me with the woman I have been blessed to know as "Mama."
I will always be a Mama's girl and she will always be the center of my world. <3
She's an excellent mother, wife, and grandmother. She can often be seen dancing around the house, whether to the music pouring from the radio, or a beat in her head.
I love you, Mama! Happy 60th!!!
