my momma and i, 1987.
happy (belated) mother's day to all the mommas out there, especially my amazing momma.
she's been my best friend since before i understood what that meant. no one knows me as well as my momma does, which means that she is not often wrong when calling me on my bullshit. she's taught me to hold strong against the storms, put my faith in people until they no longer deserve it, and treat every one with kindness and respect, no matter who they are, what they believe, or where they came from. if only more people in the world were as smart as my momma (or lucky enough to be raised by her) - it'd be such a better place.
