“For 5years it’s been my Sweat and Blood, My Love and hugs, My Wealth and Gains. I am proud TO CALL MYSELF MRMOM CAUSE I DID IT ALL ALONE. I pray God never ceases to Amaze us with his Love, We shall never beg nor need Help!
“I love you dangerously baby boy. Damn, I got it right with you. My sauce, my ace, my gateway, my lead way, my world, thanks for making me a man. Happy birthday, baby.”
