To my future daughter

Dear future daughter,

To my future daughter

I hope you don't lay awake at night, wondering why you're not enough. I hope you don't ever cry yourself to sleep because some boy is too stupid to see how amazing you really are. I hope one day, you get to see how I see you. Strong, beautiful, and independent. I know things get rough. I know you don't understand why you're here or what your purpose in life is, but trust me. You'll figure it out. I can tell you one thing, it's not to sit around and cry over some mean girls who are completely irrelevant to you. It's not to sit and miss out on life because a boy isn't texting you back. No. Your life is meant to be fun and adventurous. Your life is to be young and full of stories for when you're still old. I hope you never have unpleasant thoughts. I hope you never wonder if anyone loves you at all. And let me tell you, even when the world seems against you, you will always have me. You will always have your family. No matter what. Life gets tough, but darlin so are you. Keep your head up. Don't let anyone push you down. Walk with confidence, and I assure you, God will help you weed out the good and the bad in your life. If, for whatever reason, you can't put your trust into someone, ALWAYS put your trust in God. He will show you the correct way every single time. You just have to listen to Him and watch the signs He gives you. Baby girl, you got this. No matter what curve ball life throws, you'll hit a home run. Keep you're head up baby. Mommy loves you oh so much.

Love always,

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world.

I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
