This bitch got a fantabulous phone call that I’ve just got to share!
As some of you know, a bitch is a volunteer and I have been teaching classes at shelters for several years now. There have been many ups and far too many downs, but the ups make my volunteer work beyond rewarding.
The downs…well, I could do without them…but life ain’t perfect.
Anyhoo, this bitch got an “up” this morning.
One of my former students has been accepted to college on a full scholarship! She will be studying history and hopes to go into law. She and her beautiful baby girl will be leaving soon after she graduates from college.
This achievement comes after much struggle…a lot of downs followed by ups. Miss T. has battled addiction and abuse…fear and doubt…and one colic-based baby drama that just had to hit during finals (wink).
And it has been my privilege to witness her being liberated from fear…inspired by learning…and empowered by parenthood.
There goes the mascara!
Sniffle followed by sniffle.
So, I wanted to share this moment with y’all since you’ve sure as shit been subjected to more than a little volunteer based bitchitude (wink) in the past.
And you be sure to carpe that diem when you get to Atlanta, Miss T.!
Lawd, I’d jump up and down but my leg still hurts…
