Just noticed that too, smh.
They don’t understand the struggles of black motherhood. I shouldn’t have to worry the way that I do about the sons and daughters I will one day have. All mothers worry about raising their kids “right” and giving then the best options, we shouldn’t have to worry about our boys greeting gunned down in the street. I’ve seen the worry in my moms eyes whenever my brothers left the house, when they weren’t even doing anything reckless just walking to a friends house or walking the dog. I know parents worry, but the burden of black motherhood makes me shudder.— future black momma bear.
I literally felt like I did not have a choice.

You can’t completely trust God with your heart, mind, and strength, and not have complete and total peace in your heart, mind, and ability. You can’t love your neighbor as yourself and not have the peace of God in your relationships. Trusting is the easy part, God does the rest.
