a gay black woman's discovery of her jewish self

It’s My Birthday!

Posted on: October 8, 2013

Here’s to a year of believing in myself.

To taking time for myself.

For loving and appreciating who I am as a woman of color, as a lesbian as a Jew.

Here’s to not taking anything in my life for granted and blessing Gd for the gifts that often go unnoticed.

Here’s to saying no to preserve my sanity and to do more things for me.

Here’s to being selectively selfish and doing things for others out of the goodness of my heart and pure desire.

Here’s to spending more time listening and less time talking.

Here’s to calling my mother more.

Here’s to letting forgiveness for my sister, her addiction and it’s toll on our family into my heart…maybe, just a little bit.

Here’s to a wedding and a baby or whatever comes first.

Here’s to happiness in its purest form.

Here’s to enjoying the space I’m in.

Here’s to me, Erika Batyah Davis.

Here’s to 34 more years + 20 + 10
