Happy Birthday to my mother, Bonnie Jean Taylor. I miss this lady so much. She was so rich. So full of wisdom, knowledge, style, and flare. I still remember the day she passed as if it were yesterday. It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that she has been gone for thirty-four 34 years.
I often wonder how I survived all of these years without her. Back in 1986, when she passed, I could not see how I would carry on. I could not fathom a life without my mommy, or Ma as I affectionately called her. As time went on, I realized I had to carry on. That’s what Ma would have wanted. Ma would have wanted me to live. Live and use all that she had laid in my foundation to be great.
There are days when I can feel her energy directing my path and thoughts. Anyone who knew her knows she was a special lady. Today I thank God for the memories, for all that she poured into me, and for the time we shared.
I miss you Ma, never forgotten!
