JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 278 :: unstoppable

7 Oct


I had the most amazing surprise weekend in New Orleans, and the more I reflect on it, the more I am reminded about my dear, sweet Mama Sling. Reuniting with my cousins this weekend, randomly because we were in the same place at the same time and staying in two hotels across the street from each other unbeknownst to us, was a wonderful surprise and a massive touchstone to my mother.

We shared stories about our memories of her, her sweetness and her strength. Her hugs and love, her ability to take care of others even when she was sick. She was such a beautiful blend of those two things. Sweet as pie, stronger than life itself. This is probably why she is so present with me today, and with my dear cousins too. They called her Aunt Wee, I called her Mama Sling. But really, what she was is called unstoppable.

Which brings me to this… 

If there was any message she could have shared with us girls, I think it would be this:  “Be sweet, be strong, be unstoppable.” That is what makes you unforgettable. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.
