I’m back from an unexpected MIA.
Forgive me lots was going on this weekend since i’ve been gone.
For starters it was the hubbys b-day and we had to celebrate not once but oh 3x’s! As if a 3 day weekend wasn’t enough celebration heehee !
We also ended up traveling about 2 hrs away to visit my side of the family and do our annual christmas exchange (ya we wait ’til January since it’s 6 different families). We had tons of fun but the drive plus the kids were a little to much. I love spending time with the family especially since we won’t be close to them anymore. The kids were spoiled we are very blessed!
also Auntie Dre, who lives out where we traveled to, had been visitng with us for 2 weeks. She went back home when we all got together. She is already missed very much. The trip was bitter sweet to say the least.
oh i’ve also injured my self again. As some of you know my wonderful children left me with great injuries after childbirth one of which i’m still recoverying from. I attend therapy 3x’s a week in hopes that this will work and not need back surgery. I have a misplaced disc and yet again I can’t bend down let alone sit. I don’t know what I did but I refuse to let it stop me.
& the highlight of my absence was a new family tradition! MLK DAY!
Although the kids don’t understand one day they will and it’s never too early to learn and be able to recognize the face of a great man.
I truly believe that if there never was a person like Dr. King my husband and I would have never been able to get to know eachother let alone fall in love and marry. My children would have not existed or ever been accepted. Yes today we still have some issues and people still don’t accept mixed couples/mixed children. However, we have a right to be together to get to know eachother, to eat and play TOGETHER!
I’d like to leave you with a couple of quotes from the book Martin’s Big Words- The life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Love is the key to the problems of the world.”
“When the history books are written, someone will say there lived black people who had the courage to stand up for their rights”
“I have a dream that one day in Alabama little black boys and black girls will join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers”
