I was taught at a early age, that even when we were poor, there is no excuse to have a dirty face or clothes, even if they weren't fancy, wash your face and your clothes even if that is all you have. My Mom would say, but do it for your self, cause I was the one that had to love myself first. People may judge you, but thats okay. What matters is if am the one that is pleased. No one else matters, until you have to teach your children, how to love them selves first...I have to this day, am not rich, but I have lots of love to share and will give my all, So on judgement day when our Creators ask me, If I took care of his children?, I can go to bed at night, knowing I did the best I could for everyone that day. Ta-ahh Christina, That was my daughter's name too(RIP).
