I’m lucky to have many women throughout my life — older and wiser than me — be so loving, nurturing and giving. Growing up, my mother, my older sisters and all of the mothers on our block helped raise me. When I moved to Washington Heights in New York, an elderly Dominican woman lived next door to me. She always saw me come home late and exhausted. She invited me in for coffee and made sure I was fed. Living in the Bronx my neighbor Wanda, and my sister-mom, Karen, always providing me with the best advice in life. My aunties in Arkansas helping me transition from the city life I was used to to rural America—changing my life dramatically, in the best way possible. I honor all of these amazing women today and every day. Thank you for being so motherly. 🖤 • • Image above: Bronx, NY, mother daughter love on transit. • • #love #mothers #motherly #mothersday #life #everydayeverywhere
