sent my Baby to the window to buy ice cream on her own while I kept watch from the car directly across from where she was standing. Some guys came up next to her, greeted her politely, and stood patiently. One began engaging her in light conversation. I saw in her body language that she was getting nervous and was on my way to stand with her when this super fly Sista with a fade, sundress, and dragon wing tattooed backpiece came out of nowhere and said,
"Heeeeeey, Little Sis! It's a good day for ice cream, huh?", then placed herself between my daughter and the guy.
All of Zo''s tension melted away. Supa Sista stayed with her until she got her cone and walked her back to my car where she winked at me before saying, "She did fine, Mama. We're all watching." She motioned over to her own car and there were four Sistas outside of it, all grinning and giving me the thumbs up.
think that says a lot about how angels work. How the village works. How Black Women work.
We out here. Holy and fabulous and ready to ride out at any time, even at the ice cream shop.
