Time to discuss it…

Alright…
Here we go the big talk…
Racism.
The very clear evident issue at hand.
People killing people who differ from them…
People going out of their way to slander, criticize, hurt, damage others character, spirit, lifestyles, beliefs…
People we are supposed to entrust our lives to are hurting our nation, our people. People seeking to gain the nations trust down talking the hard working generations that have helped build this nation, build companies, build businesses and maintain beliefs, faith, structure…

Why are we ignoring the issues at hand, we took 10 steps forward and about 100 steps back!

People wake up, seek truth, seek justice, seek equality.

Do not be the bystander as injustices happen, speak up, act out in postive strides to show we are not weak willed broken minded or little spirited, we are intelligent, strong willed, faithful people who believe in equality for all races, genders and faiths. We are one people, we make up that which is Humanity, yet we have forgotten what it means to have basic human rights.

We forgot to stand up for what is right.

Its not about blacks or latinos. Its about us showing goodness, kindness, mercy towards one another regardless of what color the hand next to me, i should be able to hold it proudly and firmly to believe that we are Still that Nation Under God… for justice for ALL.

Law enforcement, is now God, they are also not always treated with the respect they deserve, does that entitle them to abuse their power and enforce it on innocent lives absolutely NOT!

People grow up, gain some self worth and self respect and act out wisely, intelligently to make a point and take a stand.

We can be a wonderful nation, a united nation…but first we need to stop pointing fingers and love another wholeheartedly… not just when its convenient.

An Ode to The One…

The young boy I met… some 10 years ago… a young man whom accidentally kissed me on our 1st meeting…
The joker who kept talking, making me laugh, until He grew in my heart, my mind, my soul…

The young man, whom I talked to for hours, who made me laugh even when I didnt want to…who held my hand, who listened, who lent me his shoulder to cry one, when other crushes went wrong… who stood by me, for me even when I didnt know…

The young love, that took me on a 1st date and pranked me…. who then waited ever so patiently for me to be ready..who took me on so many simple yet eye opening adventures.

The young man, who showed he was a man, when he proposed marriage, when he forged a home, a support system and helped me finish my schooling. To the man, who took chances to try something new, to forge a possible career, who became a hard worker throughout.

To the man, who stole my heart, gave me the desires of my heart to become a mother, who stepped up to be a better father, who is always striving to be a good son, father, husband, friend. A man who works hard even when he is tired, even when he is weak.

To the man, who has never reproached me, who has never insulted me, belittled me, to the man who has partnered with me, empowered me, supported me and helped me every step of the way for the past 10 years. To the man, whom I fell so deeply in love with, through small chatter, and silly goofy laughter.

To the man, who made all others before him disappear from my memories, and who filled my mind and heart with so many new beautiful memories. To the man who snores sometimes, steals the covers, forgets to put the laundry away, even with these silly flaws, you are every bit more than any man I could ever imagine or hope for. To the man who shared in our Faith and helps me to instruct our daughter. To the man who treats our princess like what she is royalty, and the man who loves to treat me special, to the man who made so many wishes a reality, and has shared in dreams being forged and worked for now….

To The One… who stole my heart, and I hope he never returns it. To the man whom I dreamed of for so long. I LOVE YOU. I am ever so grateful to know you, to have you, to be with you, to Love you.

May we share a forevermore…for a lifetime and then some.

Muah!!!!

Xoxoxoxo

Ode to those who came before The One…

We all have ’em…
The for many regretted and dreaded exes.

Those who came before you found your true love…

I wasn’t a crazy dater, but I delighted sharing in the company of several young men before meeting the goofball who grew to become the wonderful man I call my husband…

There were the boys I thought I loved, before…but none ever quite measured up…to the feelings I thought I would have…

I may have felt Love omce before…but even still it paled in comparison…it didnt grow and change and shift year after year…it diminished and slowly disappeared…

Then there were the fleeting crushes, of which I had many… boys, young men, men who came into my life for short seasons. Seasons in which I learned about myself, my likes in a person, my dislikes, my must haves, my can not haves, my everything…

All of the odes of boys and loves past, only make me love and cherish the man I have so much more…

Many of the young men whom I frequented friendships with, crushed on, shortly dated, were and are perfectly fine men. Some surprised me by stepping up to more than I envisioned…for that I am glad. For I wish them well in whatever journeys they decided to take after we parted…

these boys..however… led me to The One….

An Ode to him… deserves its own place

To be continued…

The strange ways of the world…

Life is made up of a chain of reactions, to a chain of events which compose our characters and lifelines.

So it is always interesting to me, when you see people reply one way, but their reactions and actions contradict everything, spoken or written.

It bothers me to witness, people risking their own happiness, for the shortlived happiness of others, who would never reciprocate the selflessness.

There comes a time, in which parents need to stop creating a bubble for grown adult children, and live the lives they desire and deserve. Guarding others feelings, to protect them, while  hurting yourself or someone else in the shadows, should never be ok.

People need to realize, beauty, love, happiness all lie within the eye of the beholder…but if the beholder stops living their full potential to guard others feelings, that beauty, love, joy can be quickly lost or forgotten…

Love like crazy
Be fun and spontaneous
Be bold and genuine
Never lie
Always be loyal
Be trusthworthy
Be mindful but not overly careful
Be passionate
Be assertive and strong
Be all you Can be
Be yourself forever and always
