My Papa passed away late last night. I’m rarely at a loss for words, but I just don’t have any to express how much I will miss him. He undoubtedly shaped who I am today, and his life was a reflection of how big he loved. I am so sad, but his life is one to be celebrated. I can only imagine the rejoicing as he walked into the arms of his Heavenly Father, and I have no doubt he is the happiest he’s ever been today. The legacy and love he leaves behind is truly immeasurable. ❤️ Love you, Papa.
👀Swipe to see PROBLEM AREA. #madeyalook 👉🏽Faux Problem: My body. No part of it is a problem. It’s just a body. #bodyneutrality Though, sometimes I do get a little insecure about certain areas (i.e. my #postmastectomy chicken wings where all the breast tissue was removed from under my arms), my body is not problematic in any way. Want to talk REAL problems?👇🏽👇🏽 👉🏽ACTUAL PROBLEM: Racism in America. TOTALLY problematic. Learning of the tragic death of Elijah McClain TWO DAYS AGO - I just learned TWO👏🏽DAYS👏🏽AGO - has me outraged. A beautiful 23-year-old life cut short. He was murdered at the hands of Colorado police officers for just walking home. Call, donate, sign the petitions to bring his story and life justice. It’s easy to do. Go to @justiceforelijahmcclain to learn more and find actionable ways to help. 🖤Art: @wereleavingearly
⚡️T-W-E-L-V-E.⚡️ Somehow 12 years have passed and here we are, celebrating the big 1-2 with our biggest guy! He’s smart and creative, responsible and (mostly) kind to his little siblings. 😉 He still loves soccer and Legos, drawing and gaming. We’re super proud to be his parents...and a little bit sad that he’ll be a TEENAGER next year. 🙋🏼♀️😢 And, there’s a good chance he’ll be close to being as tall as I am.😱 Love you BIG, Becks!❤️
Omg. The pride in sitting up on your own and scaring your mama half to death when she goes to get you up from your nap.😳 First time he’s sat up on his own. Ever. Lowered that mattress immediately.
🖤DO MORE>>BE BETTER. Love supporting one of my former student’s (he’s like, a college grad now 😱) in his effort to use his leadership skills to do good for humankind. Brandon is fortunate to work alongside him. Proud of you, @akersj15. 🖤Learn more about his mission at www.beyond wordsleadership.com or @beyondwordsleadership.
