I have been a mother for most of my adult life, and each child has made me a stronger, more beautiful woman. The oldest is my inspiration; the middle has given me spirituality; and the youngest has given me youth. Being their mother brings me closer to my true self.

Have a Revolution

Lydia & Bayé-Jakada
Nikki Giovanni once wrote “then I awoke and dug that if I dreamed natural dreams of being a natural woman doing what a woman does when she’s natural, I would have a revolution.” Giovanni’s poem Revolutionary Dreams best describes my experience as a mother; my own personal revolution. Like others, I wanted to change the world, stop hunger, stop crime… start a revolution to better the world. But then I became a mother and I realized that being a mother is the most natural and revolutionary thing I could have ever done!

I am constantly convicted in my heart as to what unconditional love truly means by becoming a Mother. My children push the love limits in a way that allows me to grow and I am so blessed because of it. Mama love is a love that exceeds all and is something to be cherished forever.

Being a mom is like receiving a gift every day. There’s always something new to experience. I had no idea how much I would love motherhood and that it would change my life forever. I love the change in me. I thank my daughter for bringing out the best in me. I do what matters most in life, and that’s to be the best mother and wife that I can be because tomorrow, she’ll do something different, and it’s my job to discover all of what she brings to my life. That’s living. That’s motherhood.
