Tomorrow is My Birthday

I am so blessed.  I've already been out to dinner with my family, lucky me (SQUEE!). In the morning I get to go to a friends house for breakfast.  She offered to cook for me to celebrate my special day.  We try to get together at least once a year (on her birthday and have breakfast), but this year she's catching me on mine, and I feel SUPER SPECIAL!

To me cooking is a labor of love and when someone offers to make a meal for you, it means they really care.  It has inspired me to do the same for someone else, in essence to "Pay it Forward".  Not my family, I cook for them all the time, but a friend that I don't get to spend as much time with as I'd like.  I hope they experience the same feeling of love as I do.

My mom bought me a dress to wear to the wedding I'm attending this weekend and that made me feel AWESOME!

And Wednesday I get to go see SADE...say what!!! 

Every which way I turn, I am blessed.  My life is this great journey and I am so happy to have made it these 33 years to experience all I have; the ups and downs.  They have made me who I am, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. 

I am truly grateful for all the people in my life.  You've all helped me grow in some way or other, and I truly appreciate it.  I trust your day will be as blessed as mine is. 

Be Blessed.

EverythingMan Radio

This morning I had the opportunity to tune in for the premiere launch of EverythingMan Radio. It's a great effort by some wonderful men to spread a message about being an all around, "Everything Man"; a son, friend, husband, father, and whatever other roles as the need arises. There platform is simple, "Real Men, Real Talk" and honestly, it is real, which I think is very necessary. You can't correct an issue by stepping politely around it whenever it comes up. 

To be forthright, I must say I know these men, and I'm very glad that my husband and I do.  It's an accountability issue.  I know these guys @EverythingmanHB and @EverythingmanMC wouldn't advise anything foolish or detrimental, as they are committed to "pursue ways to elevate our communities and build stronger families!!" I know their wives and their children and thus I have a glimpse into their hearts, and they are the real deal.  It's a blessing to be able to fellowship with them and I hope you all will support them in this effort.

The show isn't just for men though, both the co-hosts speak very highly of their Everything Woman (wives), and how these ladies support them and help keep their families running.  My real appreciation for the show lies in my belief in the potential change that can come about from more people hearing the message these men have to share.  I myself am a very visual learner, however it really becomes clear when I'm walked through it verbally.  Dialogue is key. 

Check them out tomorrow and Monday (you know you're off :) over at

Until next time,
Be Blessed
