What do you love most about motherhood? 160 characters or less This year we celebrated “10 years in the game” and I can honestly say that I have enjoyed the entire ride. He has given me a purpose that only parenting can provide…purposed with leaving a legacy that can be proud of. He’s witty, smart and extremely athletic. I enjoy being his sideline cheerleader and helping him navigate the challenges of school. Simply put…there is nothing not to love about the smile he puts on my face daily.

What do you love most about motherhood? 160 characters or less Motherhood has been the most rewarding purpose in life for me. My children is the legacy I will leave the world. I will change the world by having raised and released to the world two amazing children. Motherhood has given me divine purpose, passion, patience, and providence. Motherhood has been a divine placement that I embrace with grace. My children grew up to call me blessed and therein is no greater compliment. To God be the glory!

What do you love most about motherhood? 160 characters or less I enjoy being a full-time mother who instills hugh visions and dreams. Though I am single, I work hard to give my kids the best. I love the years that we have spent together, and understanding their personalities as well as watching them grow into who they desire to be in life. Most of all, I love hugging, kissing and loving on them and being the best role-model and teacher in their lives.
