Black Girl Grieves


At my grandmother’s repast, someone with a camera snapped a picture of me that perfectly captured the face of grief.  Over the years I have worn that visage many times.

Today is the one year anniversary of my mother’s death.

Today marks three months for my husband, too.

I miss them so very much!

This Time Around


Next June will be our 10 year anniversary.  We plan on having a ceremony to renew our vows.  I also want to have the children to participate.  I was thinking of a commitment ceremony that would include all three children.

Kierra was supposed to be a flower girl when we married in 1999.  Christine stalked (that is a post I’ll have to share on another day) us the day before wanting to pick Kierra up so she could not participate in the wedding.  Well she got her wish.  Kierra was not allowed to attend our wedding and she is still to this day upset about it.

The date will be on her weekend so this should not be a problem this time. 

I have a few ideas but would like some input.  I really want a simple ceremony with a few guests.  Then we want to have a big reception afterwards.

Oh, and I want the Godparents in the ceremony as well.

If anyone has ideas please send them my way!
