I Wish I Could Bear His Child...

I apologize for the lack of posting...but time and life got in the way. I'm going to lost something very honet and heartfelt now that a major change has come into my life...LOVE.

I have met an amazing man. And I love him with every fiber of my soul. He caring, protective, generous, family focused, hard-working, handsome etc. But what amazes me the most is that he's not afraid of love, nor is he afraid to love or be loved.
He doesn't disrespect me.
He laughs even when my jokes are less than funny.
And when the going has gotten tough...he's stayed.
He's taught me about the art of compromising. I mean i've been single for years so naturally it was all about me in MY world lol
Now, it's our world. And our world isn't as bad as I thought it would be.
He has a strength that I've never seen in any man. And his strength has attracted me.
On our first 'date' we went out as friends. We went to the movies and there was a part in the movie that was scary...I grabbed his hand and noticed it was calloused...I believe I fell in love with him at that very moment. Here is a man who's not afraid of hard work.
Nardo (his name) works from sunrise to sunset. He's a jack of all trades and master of none. He calls himself a black mule...but I call him my hero.

Prospering in spite of having the weight of the world on his shoulder...
To feel protected...
and loved...

To work together as one...

Strengthening family ties...

Grow old together and establish our (blended) family tree...firmly rooted

My greatest wish and desire (and it would def take a miracle!!) is after marriage is:

Find amazing black art at African Art World

Has any of your dreams come true? How??

I Wish Kids Didn't Have To Resort To Such Desperate Measures....

I wish, one person could've heard Abraham Biggs' cry for help, and dried his tears.
I wish suicide would not be viewed as the final answer for our youth...

I wish and hope the day would come sooner rather than later, when Abraham's family will know-it's not ok, but it is alright.
We can't save all of our youth, but we can PAY ATTENTION to the warning signs:
  • Sadness or hopelessness
  • Irritability, anger, or hostility
  • Tearfulness or frequent crying
  • Withdrawal from friends and family
  • Loss of interest in activities
  • Changes in eating and sleeping habits
  • Restlessness and agitation
  • Feelings of worthlessness and guilt
  • Lack of enthusiasm and motivation
  • Fatigue or lack of energy
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Thoughts of death or suicide

I wish...through Abraham's death, another life is saved.
I wish...Abraham Biggs, was alive.

RIP Abraham Biggs

Scratch One Wish Off the List...

There will be black man inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. I am still coming to terms with this piece of history that has now been added to our lives. Like many African Americans while this wasn't often said out loud, I must admit Barack Obama's cool, suave swagger, his nonplussed attitude in the midst of accusations, his blatant love for his wife-has indeed moved me. I can scratch a wish off of my list. I have lived to see a black man become president for all of the people.


It's good to know that wishes are still coming true.

Congratulations, President-Elect Barack Obama

I Wish I Could Ask God, Why????

By now, you have heard of the tragedy that has befallen entertainer, Jennifer Hudson.
In case you were living underground for the past week or so, Jennifer Hudson of "Dreamgirls" and "American Idol" fame had to identify the bodies of her mother, brother, and most recently her 7yr old nephew as they were gunned down in cold blood.
Jennifer's brother-in-law William Balfour, her older sister Julia's husband, is suspected of the killings.

I wish I could ask God, why?
Why would you allow this man to kill this family, incl a 7yr old boy?
Why is it (to me) Lord, that it seems the good people die and the bad people thrive?
What lesson are u trying to teach Jennifer, and u cudn't teach it to her another way?
How can she go on, Lord, when 3/4 of her family were killed in less than a week??
I don't know if I could ( or would) want to recover from a tragedy like that. And I don't think i could ever forgive you, Lord...because YOU HADN'T STOPPED IT. I hope u understand where I'm coming from God.

What do you wish YOU could ask God??

I Wish I Could Go Back In Time...

I wish I could go back in time.
If I could go back in time, I'd:

  • Choke the hell out of Eve (as in Adam and Eve) for setting precedence for all of womankind. What part of 'DON'T EAT FROM THAT TREE' DID U NOT U UNDERSTAND??? Then I'd drop kick Adam...what in the hell were YOU thinking??

  • I'd go to Egypt, and see what King Tut really looked like, see if Cleopatra was black/white/other, and I'd sit my butt on that hot sand and finally see how the Pyramid/Sphinx were actually built!

The image “http://www.sti-travel.com/images/country/Egypt1_Great_Pyramids.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
  • Of course, I'd chill with Jesus Christ-and I'd also find out how Apostle Paul/Peter passed away.
  • How did 'Superman' really die?
  • Find out if we (U.S.A) really put a man on the moon
  • I'd thump my mom in the head (in her 20's) until she made decisions that were best down the road, and not for immediate gratification.
  • http://www.fotosearch.com/bthumb/ILW/ILW003/cozarj0068r.jpg
  • MLK Jr., would've changed his lodging plans around at the last minute-so he'd be alive today to put his feet in his kids' asses!!
  • Teach my younger self, holding onto anger only stops my life, no one else's.
  • Choose a diff father for my daughter.
  • Insist my aunt treat her body better so that she may live
  • Be in Greece for the 1st Olympics!!

  • Meet my forefathers who were slaves. (I'd probably last just long enuf to get their names..then I'm gone, I wouldn't make it back to 2008-i'd be killed!!)
  • Hang out more on prom night -Who didn't like or wanna be like Molly Ringwald (below) in the '80's??
  • I'd ______________________ Adolf Hitler, Mussolini etc

I Wish I Could Quit My Job...

I wish I could be like Johnny Paycheck and tell my manager, "Take this job and SHOVVVVVE it, I ain't workin' here no mo."
I wish she'd call my name, ride me about some 'mistake' I made and while she's sounding like Charlie Brown's teacher...unintelligible. I'd tell her to 'shut up.'
I'd tell her to shut up and now she and everyone in my office to 'listen up.'
I'd then say I'M DONE.
No more bureaucratic crap.
No more petty, ghetto, office backstabbing.
No more being unhappy that I have to come here
No more looking at you all (most of the employees, anyway)pitiful stupid faces.
I'm out.
And as far as I'm concerned YOU CAN TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT SOOOOO DEEP UP UR AZZ, You'd have to be split open just to retract the job.
I work for a Fortune 500 corporation that could give a rip about its employees, therefore it's up to us to care for ourselves. Living in MI where the employment climate is dismal doesn't afford many opportunities. However, once my son graduates from h.s. in '09, I'll be able to seek employment out of state!
So for now I can only MENTALLY tell my employer to
But I can't wait until the day comes to fruition! lol

Do you wish you could quit your job? What would you say??

I Wish I Was Fearless!

Because if I were, I:
  • Would not look down!

The image “http://www.hellblazer.com/media/fearless.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

  • would be like my sisters (black & non-black) who live on foreign land, and wear a bikini...TO HELL WITH MY SHAPE! I might go to a topless beach!
  • I'd skydive!
  • Cross a bridge
  • Say 'hi' to a stranger!
  • Stand on a scale!
  • Tell my weight (none of your business!!)
  • Confide in my friends that I get lonely sometimes, but I can't.
  • I'd be more diligent towards my goal of learning to ride/buy a motorcycle! YEAHHHH!
**Will work towards my goal in Spring '09**

The image “http://www.realdivasride.com/photos/peachy/peachy1.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
  • Would make a huge Sunday dinner, and invite my most critical family members over to partake.
The image “http://images.teamsugar.com/files/users/1/15259/13_2007/cornish_hens.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
  • And If I were fearless, I'd take RISKS!

To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.

The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing and is nothing.

They may avoid suffering and sorrow.
But they simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love or live.

Risk must be taken because,
Only a person who risks is FREE. source

What would YOU do if you were fearless???
