Just Like Her

"You look just like your mother"
It's not unusual for me to hear these words weekly, especially when someone is meeting us for the first time. I had a random lady come up to me that knew my mom in high school and say, you have to be Fran's daughter.  It is a huge honor for me to be identified by my momma. As I heard it this week, I couldn't help but think... My ebony girls will never be told they look like their momma. They may even hear the opposite. And in reality, there will be hard conversations to be had. But the only response going through my head is...
No we don't look alike on the outside but on the inside...
WE BOTH LOOK LIKE JESUS

Thank you momma for teaching me what it looks like to look like Jesus
