Mommy prays that you always make each other laugh. That you always look out for your little brother & that you always look out for your big sister.
I pray you always feel comfortable in your shade of melanin skin as you endure the insidiously frustrating questions as to whether or not you have the same parents ’cause one’s eyes are hazel & the other’s dark brown.
I pray you stay strong & hold your ground when they reach for your Locs & Afro out of ignorance & curiosity.
I pray you remain humble & walk worthy of your calling, even when Mommy & Daddy aren’t looking.
We not only love you, we respect, admire & like you; our miracles.
Be blessed beyond measure & strengthened for every mile of your journey🌹Mommy
