Mother’s Day Event at Mercy House: So Thankful

Dignity for Divas had the opportunity to host our first mothers Day Event at Mercy House transitional home. This was such an amazing experience to spend time with mothers who were so excited to be pampered and touched up.

I have been reflecting on that experience and just being so thankful that we had a chance to bring all of these mothers together to take pictures and enjoy each other’s company.

These mothers were treated to makeovers, goodie bags and snacks; while their children enjoyed their time in our mini-movie theater where they watched movies, ate popcorn and saw mom get gorgeous.

It was amazing to see the transformations occurring and I will never forget the smiles on their faces. It was an outward transformation that reflected inward — amazing.

It is so important as women to spend time pampering yourself. I know things get busy but our inner Diva needs to feel special whenever given a chance. A lot of the time we are either maintaining our lives, forgetting our lives, or putting our lives back together…So much work to do, so much to focus on, that we forget about our inner Diva that needs to know she still “got it!” Even I forget to take care of me from time to time. This event sparked my inner Diva and I will never let that flame become dim again.

Spend some time with yourself if you can, have a facial do your nails…lock the bathroom door and have a long, hot bath, read a book, just connect to yourself for a while to hear your thoughts. They could be telling you something you need to hear.

Make sure to like us on Facebook to see what we’re up to next!

Dignity for Divas has changed my life in more ways than I could ever express.

Thinking back on all of the ordeals that I have faced and decisions that have lead me down dark paths. I am at peace that it has all led me to this chapter in my life. I am so thankful for all of the continued support and on going love.

Recently I was honored at the WOC (Women of Color) empowerment luncheon. This was so special to me. It was the first time I have been recognized for doing something in my life.  To be recognized for doing something that your heart has led you to do is beyond words.

I am so thankful for all of the community leaders that I had a chance to interact with and actually build a new bridge.

I want you all to know that everyday is a new day.

I have finally found my purpose and appreciate all of your support and love.

– Nikki
