Got a mom who loves to read? ‘Gift’ her a series she’ll love!
The Butterfly Memoirs features mothers who have no problem telling their kids how they feel…
Laura Young, mother to Brian Young, the bass player: She’s supportive in his decision to pursue an interracial relationship with Ebony Campbell. To her, love sees no color as long as it’s real.
“What you need to do is find a young woman to take care of you. When do you plan on settling down? I want more grandkids running around my house.”
“Whoa.” I laughed. “First of all, I’ve got some things to accomplish before I’m ready for commitment. Second, you’ve already got five grandkids.”
“And I love all of them. But you and Bridget owe me. I don’t know what your sister’s problem is. But you, my son, need a wife. You should come home from a hard day at work and have dinner on the table, not driving through a fast-food restaurant.”
Belinda Givens, mother of Zachariah Givens, computer wiz: After the tragic loss of the love of her life, Belinda believes her son deserves the kind of love she was blessed to find. The moment she meets Yasmine Phillips, she knows she’s his match. Now all she has to do is make them see it.
I couldn’t help but laugh as well. My mother had this amazing way of being able to read my mind. It had to be motherly intuition. “Fine, what can I say? She is amazing.”
“What you can say is you’ve told her how you feel.”
My attention turned back to the street and the car driving past. “No.”
I glanced over and saw her hand resting on her hip, and a serious question in her eye. “Because… I don’t know how I feel.”
A sigh of exasperation came from her side of the porch. “Young people, wouldn’t know love if it bit you in the ass.”
Estranged from her mother, Kaitlyn Rodgers finds herself facing her trip into motherhood alone. Taking in her wayward sister turns into an unexpected support system that sees her through the toughest time in her life…being a single mom.
We had a lot of time to make up for. It would be my goal to get to know her again. And let her know me.
The good and the bad.
“He didn’t, I left him.” My attempts to get as comfortable as possible were failing. “Luke used to be different. We talked about havin’ a family of our own one day, but in the end, it was all talk. Instead of bein’ happy about the baby, he got mad. I don’t want my baby to grow up like we did. I’ll be all my baby needs. All the love, all the care…even if he doesn’t want to be part of this.” I rubbed my belly and forced my voice to stay strong. “Learn from my mistakes, Tiffy. Don’t get into a relationship with someone who will leave you high and dry.”
