As I type this post, I’m listening to the Sounds of Saturday’s at the Mason House!
Avenger’s Series playing in the background; Hubby’s lunch simmering on the stove; a “cough-cough” from our very own Doctor Mason (HAM); feet running to get back in the tub, because that’s where she was already supposed to be (TMM)…
All the while, the thought that is running through my mind is: “Tawana, what is the legacy you intend to leave behind?” Rest assured, I don’t plan on going anywhere any time soon, however, the reality is that no one lives forever. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. Therefore, it is our responsibility to nurture each moment with care.
When I think about my two daughters and their God-Sisters and God-Brothers and their parents, aunties, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins and friends all I can say is “God is good!”
We are family. Regardless of the biological DNA, there is a very real spiritual DNA that links our lives.
The legacy that I hope to leave behind to my children and my children’s children is one of hope, faith, preparedness, mindfulness, leadership, integrity, wealth, humility, discernment, and love.
With that being said, I am a strong subscriber to the adage “It takes a village to raise a child.” This is our season to rebuild that which may be broken, purge that which may no longer be needed, and mend that which may be torn or ragged.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
