Today is Mother’s Day, but so much has happened in our life, we are celebrating Mother’s Spring.

When India pledged Delta Sigma Theta, it was a very special time for us. Mother and daughter became sisters. Life felt pretty full.

When I attended India’s graduation from the University of Pittsburgh Paramedic Program, that was pretty special too. I was bursting with pride to know that my daughter knew how to save lives.

When the Delta Sigma Theta Centennial Torch arrived in Atlanta, we celebrated in the park with thousands of other sorors.

When India passed her National Paramedic Exam, we celebrated again.

When I got my first paycheck on my new job, we shopped until we dropped!

One day is not enough for me. It has truly been a Mother’s Spring, and I am grateful.

P.S. I feel inspiration for a new quilt coming on, but the one shown above is called Uncommon Legacy. It seems to fit the occasion.
