God is not gonna come down from

his throne and give you a job.

I'm tired of waiting

for your ship to come in.

I'm gonna get

on my own two feet.


Here my grandbabies. Hey!

Hey, John! Oh!

Look at my babies!

Hi! Hey, sweetie!

Hey, Arielle.

You guys go inside

and get some lemonade.

Hey, there, little Gabrielle!

John, come on

and go in the house.

You're not gonna be

my little bit for too long.

Wow, look at her!

She's putting on some weight!

Yeah, her blood count

is practically back to normal.

Hey, Mama.

She's not gonna be my little bit no more.


Hey, baby.

Well, you know,

he can come inside.

Yeah, I think he's afraid.

Well, I'm not gonna bite him.

He's afraid of how

he looks in your eyes.

You look tired, baby.

You should have called me earlier. Come on.

Yeah. You hungry?

Hey, little bit!

Look at my little thing! What?

She's getting so heavy!

Hey, looks like you

got lots of options.


What's that mean? Mmm?

I'm gonna walk into these

places like, "Hire me!"

And what are they

gonna see first?

My failures or my desperation?

And if they ask for

a resume, then what?

No husband, four kids,

no address.

Don't do that

to yourself, Natalie.

You just freed yourself up so you

could make your life different.

That was the hard part.

Now go make your life different.

Hold your head up.

Let them see what I'm seeing.


Nobody can stop you anymore.


I love you, Mom.

I know you better.

What you got?


Miss Carolyn was right.

It took some time,

but Mom got a job as a bad-debt collector.

Here's a tip.

If you owe money,

you do not want my mom coming after you.

In no time, she was a star employee,

and we finally rented a house of our own.

Try this. One-handed.

I can do that. Watch!


Gabrielle! Did you see me, Mom?
