It was upon maturing, relocating and reflecting, that I came to appreciate the simpler manner in which I was raised and the quiet strength you possessed.
For all that you are and all that you do… This Mother’s Day, I’d like to honor and celebrate you.
If I could achieve being only a fraction of the Woman, Mother, Wife, Grandmother, Sister, Daughter, Friend that you are and have been, then have mercy!!! I’m doing way better than most, LOL!!!
The depths of your faith are one of your traits, I admire most and what I used as reference for breathing life into my portrayal of “Ruth.” Like you, For the Love of Ruth, my new TV One movie, is about unwavering faith, compassion, commitment and redemption.
As long as I can remember, I’ve observed your faith, put into works, as you’ve accepted, dealt with and made it through the valleys of life. From the devastating losses of Mon Mon and Pa Pa to Daddy and going toe to toe with cancer and being victorious, you’ve handled each with such grace and dignity with your faith intact and your courage strong.
