It’s My BLOGIVESARY!!!

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!  My baby turns 2 today and I am in shock.  Who would’ve thought 2 years ago when I sat down to write my first post, create a site, develop what Just One Hot Mom was going to be that, that seed would produce such AWESOME fruit.  She yeah, she, has produced a YouTube channel and podcast on http://www.elevationsradio.com.  She has allowed me to be transparent, to express my wins and losses.  I fell head over heels in love with writing all over again because of this blog.  I’m beyond blessed to be the person that gave birth to her.

I am thankful for each and every reader, for every listener, for every one that watches the videos.  I am thankful that you all take time out of your day to listen, view, comment or think about this HOT MAMA right here.  Thank you to my family, my village for all the love and support.  You all are one of the driving forces behind me, propelling me into excellence.  You help me exude confidence and I am thankful to you all.  To my children and my partner in crime, you all put up with the emotional imbalance that is Nanekia.  You see me at my best and often at my worst.  You love me out of my frustration.  I love and adore you all for that, this is for you, for our future. I am THANKFUL for you all.

I am blessed beyond measure and none of this would be possible had I not stepped out on faith, made the decision to be transparent and allow people to see the exposed me. For that FATHER GOD I thank you.  We talk on the regular, I am unconventional, unpredictable, imperfect, confusion, a bundle of sin, yet YOU said I’m going to use you Nik, I’m going to let people see ME in you.  I swear, I fail, I question, yet I am USABLE!  Do you know how hard that is to accept?! But I accept it!

So, I’ll close this with what I say every time I’m asked how I’m going to do this, how am I going to compete….Whatever God has in store for me is meant for me, whatever God has in store for you is meant for you, What is meant for me won’t feel or fit you right and vice versus.  Yours is out their waiting for you, I’m going for mine. GO GET YOURS!

Open Letter to a Father from “A Daddy’s Girl”

daddy paintingHey Daddy! It’s your princess here.  I just want to say thank you for being my hero.  Thank you for being the first man to show me how a lady should be treated.  You are always there with a helping hand, for all that “handy” work I need done or a shoulder when I believe life’s gotten too hard and I need some encouragement.  Thank you Daddy!

Daddy, can I ask you some questions? How did you become so amazing?  How did you know how to be such a good Daddy to me?  You always know what to do or say to make everything better.  You always let me know that I matter.  Even when I feel like I’ve disappointed you, you never shame me, instead you wipe the tears and help me get ready for whatever comes next.  I’m so happy God saw fit to match us up, I couldn’t imagine my life with another Daddy. 

esha daddy meDaddy it’s amazing to me that I can feel so much love from one person. Do you think I will ever find someone that will love me as much as you do?  By the way, I know you might not like him, but your approval of this man will mean so much to me.  I value your opinion.  You’re so smart and caring and genuine.  Those are all things I hope I find in the man who will be my kid’s Daddy.  Thanks for taking the time to teach me that being your true unique self matters and that I’ll need to be accepting (not a push over) of the best people have to offer even if it exposes some flaws.  Love is love and you have the choice to give it freely.  Thank you for loving me freely.

daddy meI hope I make you proud because I’m proud of you. You’ve planted a seed that is confident, gorgeous, god-fearing, intelligent, witty, strong, passionate, and loving.  You’ve watered and nurtured me until you saw a better reflection of you.  Daddy I will always be your little girl and you will always be my best Daddy ever, I love you!
