QUESTIONS: What is your favorite memory of loving a black woman?
Two quick memories immediately come to mind.
First: my mother used to always tell me that 'I can do anything I want to do'. That was a tremendously empowering and self-esteem enhancing message that continues to yield benefits to me to this very day.
Second: I have absolutely wonderful memories of my grandmothers lovingly rubbing my back when I was a child. There was no better feeling in the world than to be laying on either of my grandmothers' laps getting my back rubbed!
I have been so blessed to be surrounded by some absoultely wonderful, intelligent, confident, accomplished, strong, loving, and unconditionally supportive black women in my mother and grandmothers. I am so much the better because of them!!
I love grandmothers. They hold the world's wisdom in their hands. Thanks for sharing your stories.
