Reposted from @mstinalawson Repost from @leadersplay2win•Beyoncé was the first person to hug me the day my mother died.
We had had just arrived at East Hampton airport when my sister called with the news.
I got out of the car and leaned against it, flipping through my thoughts and emotions.
Although I have dealt with death many times, it has never been as I had thought it would be.
And this time was no different.I felt a hand on my shoulder, turned around and there she stood. “Louie told me.” she said, “Can I give you a hug?” I nodded yes and fell into her embrace.
All she said was, “I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.” And as she walked away to board the waiting helicopter she added,
“Let me know if you need anything.”A couple of years later when Beyoncé learned of my cancer diagnosis, she became my cheerleader for a complete and speedy recovery.
“We’re going to beat this thing,” she said, signaling her partnership in what has probably been the greatest fight of my life.
I’m saying all this to say that I know her to be a kind, compassionate and generous soul whose foundation in life is love.
And today, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of her being born,
I’m deeply grateful for the love she has shown me over these many years and for the leadership she’s shown us all in transforming the planet into a world that works for everyone.
Wherever you are right now, @beyonce , happy birthday and thank you… with love.#beyonce #birthday #love #bday Shout out to @mstinalawson 💕 and @mrmathewknowles 💕 too. 😊

You deserve it baby , And every other blessing that God has bestowed upon you ! God knows who to give the gifts to!!!
He knows who will work hard at it! Who will pass on those blessings to others. Who will not let their ego get bigger than them.
Who will be kind and generous , who chooses to be positive and not be judge-mental a critic or a hater.

Reposted from @yvettenoelschure I have been emotional all day just running through this incredible journey with quite possibly one of the best humans on the planet.
Beyoncé, it has been an unbelievable privilege and the outmost pleasure to be your publicist from day one.
I am in awe of your brilliance, your heart, creativity, empathy and generosity.
I have the deepest admiration for all you do for others in your public life and privately.
You are an inspiration to so many from every part of the globe. My tears started when I looked back to you, the 15-year-old I met who was shy, curious and observant.
To now to this fierce, creative, innovative goddess I get to work with everyday.
I wonder if that young girl believed she would conquer all our hearts. I wonder if she knew she would redefine the word ICON.
I wonder if she ever imagined she would set the bar for greatness. You have, Beyoncé. You have. Happy Birthday to you.
I pray for your continued health and happiness. And thank you to @mstinalawson and @mrmathewknowles. ♥️
