Marriage is Not an Achievement

Reflection allows you to think about a lot of things that, otherwise, may not have received any attention. The most prominent part of this self-love/self-discovery journey is figuring out who I am.

In most black families, our grandmothers are the glue that holds us together. She’s often a praying woman, a woman full of love, and undoubtedly, one of the best cooks you’ll ever meet, at least mine was. She was affectionately known by her grandchildren as grandmommy, but whether you called yours grandma, granny, or Big Mama, for most of us, she was a symbol of strength and the matriarch of our family.
