This weekend our very own Faithy Fun Time turned 9 years old. I remember a time when life was about me, myself and I. The latest fashion, music and all those other silly things.
I loved going to concerts, spending endless hours at the mall and talking to my BFF’s everyday.
Then on Oct. 13, 2003, a miracle happened at 4:20 p.m., the birth of Faith R. Sutton. When I looked at her, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was so overwhelmed and that day, my life changed forever.
That especially came true when I went on my first ‘approved’ shopping spree. I came home with nothing for myself and 23 outfits for Faith. I no longer spend money at concerts, I never get to the mall and it’s been six months since I’ve spoken to my best friend.
Through out these 9 years, I’ve learned a lot about being a mother, but I also learned a lot about myself. When I think about the future, I think of a future for Faith. I want her to have more than I did, more opportunities, basically I want her to have a better life.
I’m actually scared of failure but I’m also inspired to make a difference. The main person that inspired me was my mother, and I am grateful for everything she did for me, I only hope Faith will think the same of me one day.
I hope both the men and the ladies relate to this, because we are here to leave our print, but we are also here to leave it better than we found it.
