Big Brother

Yesterday was my big brother’s birthday. We got some cupcakes and chinese food to celebrate him. This is the second birthday that we have spent without him. I miss him dearly. I think about him all the time wishing that he was here. I miss his laughter, I miss talking to him. Happy belated heavenly birthday big brother. You are always in my heart and mind.

My Birthday!!

Today is my birthday. I am beyond blessed to be surrounded by love and support by my family and friends. Even though its been so stressful these last couple of months I am so grateful for what I have. There are some people that i wish were here celebrating with me. Even though they are not here physically, I know they are looking down on me smiling . I am going to continue enjoying the rest of the day,and have some cake and seafood. I hope everyone has a great day!!

My Birthday

So Yesterday was My Birthday, and I most say I had a really good day. I did a little shopping, got some cake and ice cream, and for dinner I had Chinese food. I love Chinese food, its one favorite thing to eat other then Italian food, and soul food. for the cake I had  an Italian crème cake, and omg it has become my favorite cake that I’ve had .I’ll have to take a photo of it, it was soooooo good. it has cream cheese for the icing, coconut, pecans and almonds. for ice cream I had cookie dough. I love me some cookie ice cream, its a weakness.  I think overall may birthday was pretty good, I had really peaceful day. I can’t believe I am almost thirty years old. Time flies by so quick, its insane.

Dear Mr Martin Luther King Jr

Thank you for all that you have done. Its because of you and other civil rights activists that I know that I have voice. You shined a light on the brutality and the injustice blacks faced every day and still in someway face today. I hope that you are looking down on us proud of how far we have come. We still have a long way to go and we will continue to fight and make sure that future generations after us will have a better world to live in, Thank You Mr King .

BitterSweet Day

Today is a bittersweet day for me. Its my 25th birthday and its also the day my world turned up side down 5 years ago. 5 years ago on the night of my 20th birthday  my grandma had her fatel stroke. It wasn’t until the next day that my cousins found her.I was the last person she had called. She had called me to say happy birthday but i never answered the phone because i was extremely ill. And I will always regret not answering the phone, if i had maybe things would have been different. Grandma would not want me to dwell on the past. As I celebrate my birthday , i think about my grandmother. She was a strong vibrant women. And she didn’t take crap from anyone, she’d put you in your place real quick,she was an ol’G. She worked until the day she died and always took care of other people and always putting herself last. And church was a big part of her life. She always made sure she went to church no ands ifs or buts. She taught me so many things and I carry those memories with me. I just hope she knows how much i loved her and that she is not forgotten. I hope she is looking down proud me and everything that I am accomplishing. I made a promise to my grandma that I would come move to missouri, continue my education and work at the hospital and i am keeping my promise. I got a job at the hospital and i know my grandmother is proud of me. I can feel her smiling down on me. But not going to stop, i am determined to succeed and to make something out of myself. Grandma i love you and i miss you , i hope you are resting and at peace.
