We're not feeling each other......right now! But....

Choose to love each other, even in those moments when you struggle to like each other. Love is a commitment, not a feeling.

In my IT World... & in Life!!
The expectation that things will happen in a specific order or way leaves us open to disappointment when they don’t - which is exactly how life goes most of the time. How we handle those missed expectations is very important. Focusing on the disappointment will not change the outcome, but patience and a willingness to adjust your expectations will ultimately allow you to find a productive and positive resolution. #ThursdayThoughts

Happy Anniversary 30 years of ONENESS: 29 August 1987

Happy Anniversary 30 years of ONENESS: 29 August 1987 30 years later and it's still hard to believe that I get to wake up to this incredibly beautiful woman for the rest of my life!! Gloria has given me more than I could have ever asked for in a friend, a lover, companion whom I love beyond everything. But a careful observation (85' Prom Pic) confirms that she is a Queen. Her grace and effervescent charm is dazzling without the need for classless overtures of self adulation. In short, my wife is the classiest woman I have ever met. My best friend (86' Engaged Pic) is one who loves, forgives, patient, kind, trustworthy, honest, loyal, protective, smart, go getter, ride or die (87' Our Day), pray for you, feeds you, checks on you, drop everything for you, with you till the end, honors you, respects you, won't let folks talk bout you, laugh with you, rebukes if need be, proud to claim you, represents you, integrity of a Godly woman... I pen these words to show appreci…

"Still Processing"

Step inside the confession booth of Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham, two culture writers for The New York Times. They devour TV, movies, art, music and the internet to find the things that move them — to tears, awe and anger. Still Processing is where they try to understand the pleasures and pathologies of America in 2017.
AUGUST 18, 2017, 8:32 AM| New York Times writers Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham take a critical look at cultural issues in their popular podcast, "Still Processing." In their most recent episode, they discussed the white supremacist rally and violence in Charlottesville. Morris and Wortham join "CBS This Morning" to discuss the role white people need to play in conversations about race, and how the institution of white supremacy needs to be dismantled.

....don't struggle against outside conditions that you have no control over anyway. Work on yourself and how you respond to things, because when you change, everything changes...

Happy Healthy Monday Morning 27 Feb 17… Good People!

I’m not sure who’s the author/creator of these “you say/i say"… but,
I kept the ones I like/love…. Much Love to the author/writer.

You say arrogant, I say confident.
You say snob, I say above ignorance.
You say stop, I say never.
You say typical, I say anything but.
You say too much, I say more.
You say impulsive, I say ambitious.
You say failure, I say I am done with this conversation.

Note From The Wifey...

Ladies, I had one of best date nights ever!!! My husband and I went out on Valentine weekend for dinner and a movie. The movie we decided to see was Hidden Figures, we thought it would be a good movie for black history month and it is excellent for that but what surprised me was that it was one of the best love stories for black families that I have seen in quite a while. The story showed three strong black females and the three strong black men that loved them and stood by them and were not threaten by their intellect. These men knew how special these women were and they did all in their power to help grow and nurture them. I fell in love with a strong black man who was never threaten by me or my abilities. He always told me that he married me for my mind and he encouraged me and made me feel secure enough to achieve my goals. He is supporting, loving and empowering. Ladies I hope that you experience the love of not only a good man but the love of a secure man as well—it is a beautif…

Date Nite

Date Nite on last evening... what an treat dinner, movie & quality time with my queen... "Hidden Figures" Awesome inspiring and very intriguing.... Did anyone else know or learned behind the men who went to the Moon were three (3) brilliant black women who never received their due recognition – until now ??? My lord...(I guess better late than never). Any-how we recommend everyone please go see "#HiddenFigures" sooner than later. Watching the movie reminded me why I fell so hard in love with Gloria.. It was her MIND, her thoughts and how she process situations in business & personal. She is just simply smarter than me. And she was smart enough to marry me 30 years later (LOL) and courting.
