Oh how He loves us.
“When I started my music career, I was a maid. I used to clean houses. My mother was a proud janitor.
My stepfather, who raised me like his very own, worked at the post office and my father was a trashman.
They all wore uniforms and that’s why I stand here today, in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.This is a reminder that I have work to do. I have people to uplift. I have people to inspire. And today, I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I want to be clear, young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl. I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness.
Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.” - Janelle Monáe
Now I know the inspiration behind her style attire.
I actually had an argument with a friend about this because she thought Janelle wears suits because she’s bourgeois. I was like really? Have you seen her live performances, have you heard her lyrics? There’s nothing uppity about her. And now hearing this is like perfect. She’s a seriously fun entertainer but she’s also serious about what she does and that is why I LOVE her.
& this because sometimes, words are a little clearer with just the geets.

I’m tired as ever, but I am so grateful that God has blessed me with jobs that are able to pay the bills. God is good.
