Sharing my thanks

Today as I worked on blog posts and taxes, I took time to be thankful. Many times we forget to be thankful for what we have until it is gone. We become so wrapped up in what our intelligence dictates that we forget we did not create ourselves.

Today I gave thanks for life. I am thankful that although I have had a series of strokes I still command my faculties well. I am thankful I can walk. I am thankful for a home and vehicle paid in full. I am thankful for the time to allow my body to heal after being doubtful of living to see 2011. I am thankful for the children in my life who remind me that I am not omniscient. I am thankful to not have buried a child or visit one in jail. I am thankful for the elderly who still guide me in life. I am thankful for the grace of God that allows me to live despite the errors I have made. I am so blessed to live in a country where women are empowered. I am blessed to say what I so desire without fear of becoming a detainee.

Take not each moment for granted. Live to your highest good every moment granted to you. Know that divine guidance is yours for the asking. Ask. Spend more time showing love than promoting hate.

White Boys Whine

Quick  and dirty   Star Trek  Discovery  is everything  I  thought  it would  be.  It is my hope the White  boys  chill the fuck out .  There will be a White male captain .   The Black  woman  will be of a lowered  status.  White  boys  are you appeased ?
My personal  view fuck White  boys who had their dicks in a vise  over women  of color  at the helm of a fictional  space vessel.  I shall watch  Star Trek  Discovery .  I shall pay the fee to CBS Access  with joy. If you wanted to watch OITNB you paid  Netflix . Overall  I look  forward  to the day a fictional  show  that features  women  of color  in prominent  positions  doesn't  freak out White males.  They were  so freaked  out  they compared  The Orville  to Star Trek  Discovery .  Guys chill out ,  future  happens .

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

Work to do

I am typing a few quick thoughts today.  This thought is about White people being real.  When I returned to Mississippi in 2002, I had planned to only be here two years.  I didn't wish my kids to be in the oppressiveness of Mississippi too long.   I like other young Black people left this state before the ink was dry decades earlier.  When I returned in 2002, I was to learn of a silent change in the state, White folks waking-up. 

They are sadly still not the majority in 2017 but they are growing daily.  Trump has helped many White people face the mirror no longer able to deny the truth.  They are now facing the results of hate without the filter of Confederate glasses.  Mississippi is a wreck and holding on to a divisive symbol of hate, our flag.  Centuries of hate in the state has left the state destitute to the point even White people are leaving in large numbers.   Those now leaving are exporting hate to other states that have done well economically by ending policy of hate.
