Tomorrow is Mother's Day. My memory of a conversation I had with my mother. So clearly I can see my mother's face as I was speaking and how she would ask me why?

Why didn't you speak to me about the Abuse? What were you afraid of?

I was ashamed mami, ashamed of the abuse, ashamed of not being good enough.

Mami, you and Papi are now with one another and I want you to know! You would be so proud of me, I am not ashamed anymore Mami, I no longer feel unworthy.

Before you left me my sweet, wonderful Mother, you said, what my abusers did to me was wrong. Mami, I am speaking out and telling the truth! I am speaking out for me and so many more.

I know you are watching over me, and I know that you are protecting me and those I love (MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS).

To all my mother's, sister's, daughter's, Thank you for being you and for standing by me as we tell the Truth!

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, georgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others".

"The above speech by Nelson Mandela was orginally written by Marianne Williamson who is the author of similar material.

God bless,
