We did it 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾😭😭😭🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾😩😩😩❤️❤️❤️ I still don’t have the words. Only Gratitude!!! Thank you Lord! Thank you Jesus! For blessing me far beyond what my mind could accept or comprehend 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾😭😭😭🙏🏾❤️. For doing the exceedingly and the abundantly. For helping me push past my fears into my Power. I know that is only the beginning. Thank you 🙏🏾❤️ @realblackcoffee@euphonik you guys .. Thank You! You are my brothers. You trusted me with your vision. With your dream. Thank you so much! I’m deeply honoured and grateful 🙏🏾. Nathi, @realblackcoffee, you trusted me with your heart. Thank you for that 🙏🏾🖤. I love you my brother.
To my husband @bonnkeshipalana .. you just don’t know what you mean to me. You were sent by God onto this earth just for me. You pushed me when I thought I couldn’t possibly do this on my own. You insisted that I do it! My goodness 😱.. all my big moments are always because of you and your unwavering belief and trust in my abilities and my gifts. And God given purpose. I love you 🙏🏾❤️. Thank you.
To my support structure.. my people in times of darkness and in the light.. @firstname.lastname@example.org .. words fail me.. you went far above and beyond. I didn’t want to bug you guys. The timelines were too tight. But you said we will be there for you every step of the way. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. 🙏🏾❤️. I love you both very much.
@karabothecurator dude.. I love you! Thank you for being the best friend that I don’t even deserve. I was too much in my thoughts and you knew that I’d go crazy and you pulled me out of there. You looked after me when I couldn’t look after myself. Or my babies. Thank you. I love and appreciate you so much.
@olwe2lesh@lamanica@athimyataza thank you for saying yes to whatever I asked for. Even when I didn’t want help, you saw the gap and you helped anyway. You guys are truly Godsent. Thank you so much 🙏🏾❤️. To everyone who came and even those who weren’t able to make it. Know that we love and appreciate you all so much.
