I Hate Having A Crush Pt 3

"Hey may I talk to you about something? Are you free Wednesday at 3?"

Was the message I sent to my crush through snapchat, trying to muster up the tiny bit of courage I had left to tell him how I felt about him...

You have probably already guessed by the title what this post is going to be about. This is " I Hate Having A Crush" Pt 3. The last part of this small series, I didn't even know this was a series but I just liked the ring to it so we are sticking with it. If you haven't read the last two post just like this you may want to do so and get caught up.

I'm Learning From You ( Original) Happy Mothers Day!

You showed me countlessly what passion looks like
What it means to not go down without a fight
And I'm learning from you.. over and over again
That maybe life is not all about what you accomplish
But the lives that you touch

I'm learning from you that faith doesn't have to be a huge ordeal
Faith can simply be choosing to open your eyes and wake up to
the beautiful morning.. not knowing if this beauty will be peaceful or tragic as time goes on
You showed me that being a women is more than just being..
It is.. Loving, Understanding, Listening, Forgiving, Praying, Laughing, Crying,

Being a women is Interceding for your loved ones without expecting anything in return
And I'm learning from you over and over again..
About what it means to be a women
A humble women of Christ
Who will boast in her weaknesses
Who does not fear the future
Because she knows who stands before her and behind her
And I'm learning from you over and over again.
Happy Mother's Day to a…

Rabia Shay will be sharing her journey into being diagnosed with ADHD, as well as the stereotypes and obstacles that come with her being a African American Christian dealing with a mental illness.
