"I LOVE MY MOMMA" Mommy & Me Edition
Our founder, Jasmine + her mother
“My momma is the true testament of love. Her growth inspires me to be a better woman each day. The sky has never been the limit, if we can dream it, then it’s ours. I pray that when I become a mother I can be half as amazing, kind, fun and loving as she is. To know her, is to love her. I hope that I continue to make her proud.”
Jasmine + Her Grandmother "Nanny Glo"
Jasmine + Her Grandmother "Nanny Faye" and cousins Jaleesa & Kim
“To my nanny’s, I will continue to honor your legacy in everything that I do. I love you both and wish that I had the opportunity to share this with you all just one time. Happy Heavenly Mother’s Day”
"My mom doesn’t settle, she always aims for more to be better. She always has this drive where everyday is better than the next. Every year throughout the year, she just progresses. She keeps me motivated to not settle myself"
"My mom, Stephanie Michelle, is the most loving and giving person I know. What I love most about her is she always puts the needs of others before her own. She is the definition of being selfless. She is always willing to help and most of all she will make sure you eat! She has taught me so much about being patient, extending grace, and how to be a caring and kind person. She inspires me to not only be a better mother, but to be a better person."
"There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one."
"My mother has inspired me with her resilience, her light, and her drive. Her authenticity and desire to be herself. Her femininity. And ultimately, her evolution. It is nothing more beautiful than understanding what it means to become a mother, and use that understanding to dive deeper in your relationship with your mother."
"What I love most about her; how she loves unconditionally."
"My mom always taught me to be kind to everyone. She said strive to be someone that nobody has anything bad to say about. My mom is that person. I strive to be just like her."
"My mommy is truly a light. Her poise and motivation is contagious! She illuminates any and everyone she comes in contact with. If you know her, you love. What I love most is that she sees the best in others and pushes them to greatness. She sees what you don’t see and pulls it out of you! She inspires me to always show up for myself no matter the circumstances and not slow the opinions of others hold me back. She’s truly the best mom ever…I’m truly blessed to call her mom."
“'There’s a price to pay to be beautiful' is a quote my mom always said growing up, mainly as she was detangling my hair with my eyes full of tears. As I’ve grown older and experienced life, I’ve learned that the true price of beauty is commitment and dedication to staying true to yourself, while giving so much of yourself to others. It’s making time to nourish your being so that in turn, those around you will be full. Beauty always starts within!"
"My mom is a WHOLE BOSS!! I’m also pretty sure she’s a super hero because I will never understand how she does it all!! Growing up I watched her juggle work all while taking care of the whole family - she truly makes it look effortless! She gives the best advice and always has my back! I admire her strength, dependability, and generosity…plus, she throws DOWN in the kitchen!! Although she is such a caring person…she will NOT tolerate any nonsense and will speak her mind 100%!! I definitely don’t go as hard as her so she inspires me to be brave and stick up for myself! Overall, she is the best mother anyone could ask for and I pray to one day be an amazing/loving Mother just like her!!"
"A mother that expressed unconditional love, caring, loving, forgiving, sacrificed all, and never complained. She was the genuine jewel of a Mother and more."
The nostalgia made me appreciate my momma that much more. We can learn an infinite from the women that have raised us, but the characteristics I hope to always mimic are kindness, selflessness and grace.
I LOVE YOU MOMMA!
Happy Mother's Day
