Love is Gratitude (Thankful Tuesday_

Love is what I’m most grateful for in my life this week. The love of great friends who have had my back for decades. That good old fashioned family love. You know the kind I mean. That kin d of love that makes you want to call your parents at the age of 40 just because you had a bad day.

What I am most thankful for and grateful for is being able to spend m,y life with my best friend, I know that our love is a gift I can’t take for granted. After all this time he is still right here by my side. it doesn’t get any better than that.

When you have love you have most of what you need right there. Of course if you get the chance to do something nice for a stranger today do it., But kindness, love and gratitude start at home. So make sure you say thank you to the people who help you reach your goals daily. Tell them you love them like it’s the very last time, you never know when that I love you is going to be the last one.

I’m grateful to have shared part of my world with the following families dearly: I love you all. Dixsons, Wheaton, Thorns, RIchardsons, Alexanders, Glazes, Brashs,  and Headley-Johnson families. Your love gives me so many reasons to be thankful For that I am forever grateful.

Special mentions Mommy, Jamaal and NIck. Mom you are my air, Jamaal you are my strength, and courage,  Nick you are my balance and the light that beams from within in me.  I am grateful for love, forgiveness and another day.

Donnie Simpson’s 40th Anniversary celebration recap

When I think of the DMV I think of the Mecca, Ben's Chilli Bowl, and The Green-Eyed Bandit Donnie Simpson. When I landed at National Airport in DC with my stiff Howard University t-shirt I was anxious. I glanced at my uncle to tell him not to take me to freshman orientation and then I heard the melody of the Commodores' Jesus is Love playing on the radio followed by Donnie Simpson's velvet smooth voice. From BET's Video Soul to WPGC 95.5 to Majic 102.3 for the last 40 years, the soul of DC has been Donnie Simpson. In many ways, Simpson is as ingrained into the fabric of Washington as the old velvet paintings of Dr. King and the Last Supper's our grandmothers had hanging in the living room. For a few hours last Sunday Simpson's fan, friends, and family came together to celebrate one of Washington D.C.'s icons.

Aha Moments and Life Lessons From the New Edition Family Tree

I'm an NE 4 Lifer, but I didn't show up to the party until 1985 or 86. Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph, and Johnny of New Edition are The Temptations, The Jacksons, and The Beatles of my generation. Period, full stop don't argue with me about this. They provided the soundtrack of our lives. We sang each hit and tried, some unsuccessfully, to recreate their intricate choreography. We've gone from wanting to be Candy Girls to playing Can You Stand the Rain at our weddings, to playing I'm Still In Love With You at our anniversary parties/vowel renewals to yes, playing Is This The End at divorce parties. Don’t even get me started on that madness, but yes divorce parties are a real thing.
