Aviance and Kenya circa 1999

I’m proud of my two daughters, Kenya and Aviance. They are the most amazing young women I know and are determined to make a great life for themselves. They are strong, wise and persevering. They both learn anything they undertake quickly and with great clarity. They have wonderfully gentle souls and want nothing more than to be happy in this crazy world.

They have both made it beyond two decades of living and continue to make me proud to be their mother. As I’ve told them a dozen times before, I am thankful that their souls picked me to be their mother. I’m humbled by their decision and try my best daily to honor their choice by being the best mother I can be.

  1. How strange that you talk about your daughters today. I thought about Aviance two days ago, remembering her beautiful voice. It’s on one of my flash drives, locked away until I buy a machine to play her song. You are blessed to have your daughters. That’s one joy I never experienced. But I have 13 nieces and nephews.
