Happy Mother's Day: A Mother's Sacrifice

Dr. Dorothy Height was once quoted as saying, "African American women are women who seldom do what they want to do but always do what they have to do."

Although not a mother herself, Dr. Height understood and indirectly experienced the plight of Black mothers throughout history to raise their children, often times alone with minimal resources and limited education. Overwhelmingly, the result of their undying faith, will and strength was children who were afforded more and better opportunities then they had (or could take advantage of). Because mothers, then and now, sacrifice.

Mothers have a history of putting their families before themselves, not always because they want to but because life often requires them to.

So, on this Mother's Day, let the mothers in your life know how much you love, appreciate and respect them for everything they've done, including deferring their dreams to help you realize your own.

Happy Mother's Day from Goddess Zuri!
