Ashe, you are a mother now.  But, you have always been a mother.  You come from a long line of African women who were handpicked by the Creator to be the mothers of civilization.  As you hold your baby girl remember that SHE was handpicked by the Creator to continue on that legacy too.

yemaya5Love her.  Listen to her.  Respect her. Guide her.  Remember that what God has built up, no man has the right to put down.  Build her up and make her understand that it is not the clothes she wears, the shoes on her feet or the people who like her that will make her the woman God intended her to be.  It is the content of her heart, the courage of her soul and the wisdom of her mind that will guide her to greatness.

And you, as the Great Woman that God so carefully selected to be her Mama, should never forget who you are.  You are the waters that flow vastly and deeply throughout this Earth.  You are a graceful creature full of light and the ability to sway a man’s attention, not with the color of your lips or the click of your heels, but with words so carefully and quietly spoken that he has no choice but to look in the mirror.  Remember Ebani, you are mother, not just of your baby girl, but of Earth!  We see you!  We support you!  We honor your decision to give birth! Ashe.
