DC, Here I Come
The time has come for my road trip to DC. I’ll be leaving NYC on Thursday morning and expect to be in DC (God willing) by the afternoon. Friday, all who RSVP’d should meet at the Daily Grill for our 1:15 p.m. lunch. I’m really excited to see all of you and hope to catch up on everything that everyone has been up to. Angie are you coming? Latisha contacted me to say she’ll also be in DC this coming weekend, so we should really try to get together at some point. I’ll be visiting my sis Taqua – hopefully on Saturday. Girl, crank up the grill – something light though, I’ve been sabotaging my diet and exercise because of my cold the last few days. I’ll be staying in Georgetown, so getting around town should be pretty easy. My cell #: 917-434-5743.
Selfless Show of Kindness
Evelyn M. has always intrigued me with the way she handles situations. She is classy-hood with that rugged-girly-girl appeal that I have always admired in a woman. All said, she always seems to know what to say and do to make everyone who associates with her feel special and understood. In the past four months I’ve grown very close to Evelyn and am glad that I have such a determined and focused work-out partner. I also recognize that she has become a fast and true-friend who has captured my heart. Without sharing any of our stories and discussions, Evelyn stepped out and did something so selfless and caring yesterday that I was completely taken aback, pleasantly surprised and sincerely touched. At a time when it’s difficult to find folks who will simply do enough to maintain a relationship, Evelyn goes above and beyond to build a life-long bond built on the true meaning of love – expecting nothing, always there and with no agenda. It may not seem like a big deal to you Evelyn, but in the big-picture scheme of things, you’ve proved yourself to be a cut above the rest. Thank you for being a positive part of a new phase in my life where actions speak so much louder than words. You’ve inspired me to let down my defenses and care in return. I love you.
Long Story Short
Carmen C. lost her oldest sister last Friday. She expects to bury her Monday, April 17. Our prayers are with you Carmen. Evelyn C. began her one-year intensive course load at NYCs Mercy College. She will complete her Bachelor degree by June 2007. I’m proud of you sis. Dava and Didi B. have joined our blogger family. The beautiful twins have been reading from the sidelines, but we want to take a moment to welcome them to our blogger family and encourage them to throw in their two cents to our discussions. My stunning nephew Daylen (yes gosh darn it…. I said stunning) turns one year old on April 26. You go boy with your two-teeth self!
With the immigration laws in the process of changing we’re trying to find adequate provisions that folks on both sides of the debate can find acceptable. What is your view on our immigration laws? Should illegal immigrants be allowed to enter our country and stay simply because the US provides a better way of life? What do you believe would be acceptable guidelines for establishing citizenship in the US? Do you believe the present laws are sufficient to maintain order with regard to immigration? What is your view of the Haitian / Cuban double standard for US asylum?
