To the Girl that Misses Her Mama on Mother’s Day.

You know those days when someone comes to you at the perfect time? It’s God coming to remind you to change your attitude and shift your perspective. Well, that happened recently. In fact it happens a lot to me. Does it to you too? I was at one of my best friend’s big birthday bash…
