WHAT’S MORE IMPORTANT: VALENTINE’S DAY OR BLACK HISTORY MONTH?

IMG_1873-001

OK SO I’M TOTALLY CONFUSED. SO THE MEDIA HAS DEFINITELY BEEN UP-SELLING VALENTINE’S DAY AND ALL ITS GLORY. I RARELY HEAR ANY MENTIONS OF WHAT OUR GREATS HAVE DONE TO CHANGE OUR CULTURE AND THE AFFECTS IT HAS HAD ON US THEREAFTER .

My husband and I do NOT celebrate ” VALENTINE’S DAY”. Don’t get me wrong, I did fall for the romantic ideas and gestures at a younger age. But life does teach you your greatest lessons. I remember our first valentine together, of course I was expecting a gift or some big grand gesture. Then my hubby says, “babe if I’m  not showing you my love everyday, then something is wrong”. That’s when I got it, and Valentine’s day became irrelevant for me. There’s not a day that goes by that he doesn’t tell me or shows me how much he loves me. That’s a work in progress, that requires all 365 days of each year to accomplish. Not just one mere day. Marriage is simply learning to love and be with someone for the rest of your life. It takes work, time and effort….not a mere day.

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her- Ephesians 5:25

The love of God is infinite, so why should man limit when to express our love to each other. Show me a bouquet of rose/flowers that lasts an entire year without watering it and I’ll be a believer again. Love requires nurturing and care.

Let’s focus on the Greats that gave every bit of love they had to make a change in our life, through their entire lives:

I LOVE BROOKLYN!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE MARY MARY!!!!! I LOVE FREE THINGS IN LIFE!!

YES I SAID FREE!! One of the great things about NY, is that every summer there are free concerts held all over, to fit the likes of everyone. I heard about the Mary Mary concert at Prospect Park sponsored by bricartsmedia.org, Celebrating Brooklyn, the very day before the event. Fortunately for me my close friend was already going and so I had company! Always a plus to have company. The only problem it seem was the fact that it was over 90 degrees! These events require you to show up earlier than the suggested time in order to get a good seat. It was a tough day, however I met so many awesome women of God waiting in line and the conversations were good. We got awesome seats! Yeah us!!!

The opening act was LATICE CRAWFORD from Sunday’s Best. I wasn’t familiar with her until that night. I loved her Afro- centric look and she is very talented. Enjoyed her performance of Whitney Houston’s song “I look to you”.

Now for the moment we were all waiting for…I now present to you the Amazing Gospel Duo MARY MARY

Bateaux New York Lunch Cruise Experience

This is by far the best cruise I’ve been on hands down. I planned this romantic cruise for my hubby’s birthday and he loved every minute of it. Everything was perfect! From the time we arrived on the boat to be seated, till the time we left with a complimentary cookie to go, outstanding customer service. For me personally New York has the worst customer service ever. People treat you has if you are doing them a favor by purchasing or receiving service from them. However this gave me a totally different outlook and gave me hope and a sense of relief knowing GOOD CUSTOMER service still exist.

Lets start with the ambiance on the boat. One word BREATH-TAKING. Image

The staff was very courteous and super friendly. Not to mention the bonus of them wishing my husband happy birthday every chance they got. They had a live Jazz entertainment. The Manager greeted every single table and introduce himself. To top it off he also came at the end to see if we enjoyed everything. Which we did!

THE FOOD….Seafood Manicotti Gratinee: Manicotti filled with Ricotta Cheese and topped with Bay Scallops, Rock Shrimp, PE Mussels and traditional Alfredo………..Truly a taste of heaven…Image
