February Was Good

Today is the last day of the month. It is the shortest month. It was a good month in many ways. I met my goal of posting or sharing at least 30 times this month. I went home to Tennessee to see my dad. I had an awesome Valentine’s Day with my son and Mr. C and I had a wonderful belated Valentine’s Day. My son made honor roll again.

You know what else? I had more views to my little ole’ blog than ever before. I am truly humbled and thankful that people are viewing, commenting and following me. It really means a lot to me. I also learned some hard lessons that I will share with you in the coming weeks. Please bear with me.

However, despite disappointments, adversities and setbacks I’ve realized that February was good. It was a good month and I’m looking forward to March being just as good. I have a couple of projects that I need to finish including a couple of book reviews that I will be getting out in the next couple of weeks. I thank you for your encouragement, your patience and your wonderful posts that let me know that I am not alone.

You all are wonderful. February was good, but let’s make March better. Let’s get ready to step into Spring and clean up our houses: mentally, physically, financially and emotionally.

Happy Founders’ Day Sorors!

Today is founders’ day for my illustrious sorority. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was founded January 16, 1920, on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C.

When Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was founded, times were tough. The years just before and after 1920 were difficult for blacks. It was a time of racial hatred. Many whites joined the Ku Klux Klan organization. The Klan often terrorized blacks. Klan members sometimes burned fiery crosses in front of the houses of black families. And they sometimes beat and murdered blacks.

It was a time of migration from many blacks to the north from the south. But, all was not well in the north with lacks of homes and jobs. Changes in government with the Volstead Act (18th Amendment) and the adoption of the 19th amendment were occurring in a relatively volatile time. However, New York (Harlem) was exploding with the Harlem Renaissance and the amazing talents that were emerging. This period of creativity saw such great writers, poets and artists as Claude McKay, Jean Toomer, Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston.

One of my favorite authors was Zora Neale Hurston. Zora Neale Hurston was a brilliant writer that emerged during the Harlem Renaissance. Zora was a Zeta too.

My sorority sisters and I have had a weekend of activities planned. We will also be doing our annual service project today. One of our core principals is service. You see why I love this sorority right?

Welcome December 2016!

It’s a new month. The last month of 2016. What did you accomplish? What do you still need to accomplish? It’s not too late.

Let’s enjoy the last days of 2016 and get ready to celebrate the fact that we made it. So many didn’t make it this year and we’re going to celebrate each and every 31 days of December with gratitude.

As you’re gearing up for the holidays with trees, shopping and cooking remember that you are blessed. You are loved. You are appreciated. Now, if we can keep the snow to a minimum, I will be ecstatic.

Happy December!
