Today I want to acknowledge my blood-related Maternal First Cousin, 1x removed, Michelle Candice Lawrence
on her 36th Birthday!
Michelle is my Cousin, but has grown in my life like a Niece; which makes her My GOD-Given Niece.
We are Sisters in the Greek World;
Michelle is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
I am a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.;
which displays our individual uniqueness and does not disturb our love.
Michelle, On your birthday I want to tell you how grateful I am to have you in my life. Thank you for being who you are!
I am most inspired by your determination to achieve your goals. I watched you remain steadfast in obtaining your Bachelor degree in Nursing while becoming a first-time Mother.
Ten years later, I watch you achieve your Master degree in Nursing while being a single parent of two (2) children!
I’m PROUD of YOU, Cousin Michelle!
I’ll never forget the GREAT time we had in Phoenix that weekend in that vacation home !
You are a prime example of embracing a journey of the strong!
I am most grateful to see your Cousin kinship with my Son and his family grow.
THANK YOU for being Our GOD-Given Family!
