#WednesdayWords

Many people downplay this gift called Marriage for many reasons: what they’ve seen their parents go thru, other family members, legal stuff, fear of that severe commitment, and TV doesn’t help bring a positive outlook on it. However, for me, I Love it. I have an old soul. I respect what marriage is about, what it symbolizes, and growing as one in the eyes of GOD. Waking up to the same woman for the remainder of my days, would be no problem. For in my heart, I will know it is to be. Through the ups and downs, I will remain in her heart, give her all of me, and leave her with no doubts that my Love for her is authentic. True Love is meant for me, and marriage is the destination. I look forward to putting a ring on it! That’s #winning.

I saw this post on Google+ and I couldn’t resist re-posting. These words were so fitting for #WednesdayWords, and what this blog stands for, that I had to share! How refreshing to read these words from a Man who is looking forward to actually putting a ring on it:)

Peace and Love,

FLOTUS Sits Down With Steve Harvey

Currently watching Steve Harvey, his new talk show on the NBC network – 3PM EST, channel 4 here in New York City. I am loving our FLOTUS, and as usual she is dressed to the nines, with a creme colored pants suit…unless my television colors are off and it is a different color, lol:) Either way she looks fabulous, and I am ever so proud everytime I see her on television. It feels great to have a FLOTUS who looks like me, one that I can relate to – a real, down-to-earth Black Woman!

Steve is doing an awesome job interviewing her, and she is so comfortable and always open and honest. He has been asking her questions about when they first met, first date, kiss and about their love in general. The love she has for her husband is evident. She talked about President Barack’s character, work ethic and the fact that he turned down all types of high-profile job offers to work with voter registration and things that mattered.

The producers did a wonderful job, they had pictures of the POTUS and FLOTUS on their wedding day, a pic of where they first lived and some other really cool pics from the past.

Our FLOTUS is truly amazing, Thank you for always making Black Women look good, giving us hope, inspiration and reminding us that BLACK LOVE exists and is one of the most beautiful and precious gifts. We have always been about family and we must get back to that. When we all take responsibility for each other, there is nothing we can not accomplish as a PEOPLE!
