“We don’t see the same history….Our history is not dead facts in a book. Our history is alive and still going on. It’s in our songs and stories and the roots of every tree.” ~ Grampa Sky

Little Gerrie BARWICK

Last night my sister Gina sent me a welcomed surprise, little Gerrie BARWICK (Mama – front row; 3rd from left).

Mama’s expression reminded me of the days before Jaiya became “Ms. Glam” and had yet to realize you smile on pics! That’s the EXACT same expression I have on dozens of her pictures!:)

My first Thanksgiving on this planet without my Mom, I’d be lying to say my heart isn’t a little heavy.

But I’m oh so thankful to have such an amazing Mother, who made me the uncompromising, warrior spirit I am.  Thankful for the Mother she taught me to be.  Thankful for the blessings her MULTITUDE of prayers have afforded me.

Thankful this Thanksgiving, my Mama’s at peace and surrounded by love.

Peace and ease Mama… don’t worry about me.

All is well with my soul!:)

Luckie
