    Show off your "Mom" tattoos

    Strength, courage and wisdom

    One of my favorite songs is Strength, Courage, and Wisdom by India.Arie. Since my mom had to raise my brother and myself on her own, I felt that these words described her perfectly. A couple of years ago, I had her write those 3 words and had them tattooed on my forearm on top of a purple butterfly- one of her favorite things. I can see it constantly and when I get bogged down thinking how hard being a single parent is, I see my tattoo and realize that I am my mother's daughter so I'm bound to have some of her strength, courage, and wisdom.
