Awesome lady....Bessie Smith, blues singer. Smith felt no fear when it came to confronting the racism so prevalent in the South. Once, when performing a tent show in a Southern town, members of the Ku Klux Klan, in full Klan regalia, surrounded the tent, threatening to pull it down and trap everyone inside. Smith stormed out and confronted them, shouting, “You had better pick up them sheets and run!” The men took to their heels. Smith went back to performing, as if confronting the KKK were all

Very sweet. "This is a tattoo I got very recently for my dad who passed away. He said “tell Morgan I love her” in the last letter he wrote to my sister so I had them tattoo his exact hand writing.

Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it.” —Gabourey Sidibe

Great idea for my parents 40th wedding anniversary next year. This is a phenomenal idea for a Birthday Gift. Definitely one that won't be forgotten and can be passed down. My eyes were tearful just reading about it
“She craved a presence beside her, solid. Fingertips light at the nape of her neck and a voice meeting hers in the dark. Someone who would wait with an umbrella to walk her home in the rain, and smile like sunshine when he saw her coming. Who would dance with her on her balcony, keep his promises and know her secrets, and make a tiny world wherever he was, with just her and his arms and his whisper and her trust.” ― Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone
