Shes got Papers


First, a new kid on the block ~ armed with a box of crayons, ready to make her mark on the world. Next, a young lady forging ahead ~ jotting down all those fabulous ideas to help mold and shape her journey. Then, a lady fully focused on the prize, knowing that the future is right now ~ she is determined to triumph!

From The Babes in pink ruffle dresses making their intro to the under 7 set, to The Misses in bell bottoms using their minds to create their realities, to The Ladies who are stunning with or without exterior decoration, awake to all the possibilities, who are writing their own tickets all while staying true to #1.

I am one of the Ladies: Mom to Brandon & Jada, Wife to James, Daughter to Cheryl & Lefty, Grand-Daughter to Peola & Smitty and Little Sister to Chermia. They each help to carry me in their own little way.

She's Got Papers is witty, smart, fun and uplifting. It is reflective of my belief in self expression, my appreciation of words and my passion for paper.

Always Be Inspired . . .

Food for thought Thursday!

Real Talk: Are You Willing to Date a Non-Black Man?






This morning I was supposed to do an interview about interracial dating for the Wall Street Journal’s site, WSJ.com. The goal was to sit down with Ralph Richard Banks, a Stanford law professor and the author of the very controversial book, “Is Marriage for White People?” which says it’s in Black women’s best interest to give non-Black men a shot. 


Stay with me.

An unexpected issue made it necessary for the news site to reschedule this morning, which may be for the best. Trust, I know you're tired of hearing about single Black women and the implications of what they need to “fix” in order to become married Black women. But before you click the “X” at the top of the screen, I ask you to hear me out… once again.

I have issues with Banks' outlook, as I made clear in a previous Real Talk post. But I do agree with his overall premise that’s it’s time Black women considered the other options we have when it comes to dating and relationships, i.e., dating non-Black men.

You still with me?

This isn’t about dogging out Black men. If you’ve read my work, you’ll know that I think there are “good” Black men aplenty. I select one to be featured in each issue of ESSENCE and I find a bevy of them for the annual Do Right Men issue every August. I meet them nightly as I scour the city streets of New York, and other cities too, and narrow the prospects down to offer up to you, email addresses included. I’ve dated several, and I have one to call my own.

My outlook also isn’t about placing non-Black men on a pedestal. Men are men, some will do you dirty. Some won’t.

What this is about is suggesting to you that you expand your options to include men, of any color, who will treat you in the manner that you find acceptable, whether they share your skin color, or your culture, or not. Dating is a numbers game. And if you are single and don’t want to be, it makes sense to tip the odds in your favor by expanding your palette.

One of my very good friends is married to a non-Black man. Before I knew that, I loved the way her eyes lit up when she told me how they’d met at a bar on Canal Street, found they had everything in common, and from that first conversation, they had spoken every day since.

When I finally met him, I was surprised to find he wasn’t Black. Honestly? “She got a white boy?” was my first thought. But as I watched the way he looked at her like she was the only woman in the room, his race became a non-factor. I wanted a man to look at me that way -- the New York wind chill was a little warmer, like the ‘I can barely make ‘em out here’ stars in this city were a little brighter, like my kisses were a little sweeter, too. I wanted that feeling of being looked at with love -- and not just from my Daddy.

Maybe that feeling would come with a Black man. Maybe not.

If I feel that way, does his race matter?

Should it?

No.

Think about it?

Many in the pro-life movement stand for life but how many are open to the thought of openining up their homes and hearts to the option of adoption?this is the change that many need to really make sure no child is left behind it's time that we as people of faith wake up !! and see that if we want children to have life and live life abundatley then this is the way for us to grow.But keep in mind there is grace to walk this road of that is what is on your heart to do. Let's join up with those in Hollywood who are doing the samw Adoption is the Option:))

Music MondaY!!

OMG!!!!! I can never get through this song without that ugly cry!!! i heard this song and it just tore me up!!.Don't think i could ever see this movie though.There was a time in my life that this song just made it all the better! this song is dedicated to my family and most of all You God cause you gave been a friend that has stuck closer to me then anyone ever could have:) You gave me my family just to let me know that:))There was a time I never thought I would laugh about it but it's so good to get 2 the other side and know who has been there with you through it all:)


Here are the words to the song just in case u wanted 2 know:))
Time passes, the world changes
But I'm still the same ole' kid
And your jokes still bring me laughter
As if you still were here
And it hurts
When I smile
'Cause my heart still remembers
When you were around

'Cause you were there
When no one was
Just when I thought nobody cared
You showed me love
'Cause you were my friend
You always told me
And I am still here
Because you were there

So precious, small treasures
A time when truth was innocent
True friendship, was all we were after
A place where kids could still be kids
And it hurts
But I'm glad
'Cause at least I was blessed
To have you as my friend

[HOOK]

You're my best friend
There are no accidents
God has a plan for everyone
And he brought you in my life
To show me what a good friendship was

[HOOK]
