Psalms 23

On 12/10/16, Squeak baby's mom died.
Mary Patterson was a force. Smart, loving, beautiful, sharp dresser, accomplished , truth teller and down to earth.

I never forget the first time we met.
Homecoming & Robin was a freshman.
It was the morning after. Robin walks in the suite, Vickie these are my parents.
I was mortified, liquor bottles and roaches every where.

She walked in with Pat and said I am Mary and this is Pat.

Cool as a fan. No judgement.

Fast forward, my many trips to New Jersey. They cooked breakfast on the grill.
They had a great home and Amway.
She was a council woman. I had never known one personally. I was amazed at how down to earth and authentic a politician could be.

I am very saddened for Robin and the Patterson Family. First their Aunt, their cousin, Scott and now Ms. Mary. They have lost their matriarch and Mr. Pat, his soul mate.

I have very fond memories of Ms. Mary. She was a jewel... simply a jewel.

#Rip Ms. Mary Patterson, sleep well and May God strengthen your family as they navigate this new normal.

Teachable Moment


Today, I followed up on a lead from my husband. I spoke to briefly.  He put his colleague on.  She was curt and to the point. She heard nothing  and conveyed that I was a pest.

I felt some kind of way. She hung up on me. I FELT SOME KIND OF WAY!
There is no reason to be rude in business.  Abruptly ceasing a
Hanging up on

The business knew. The owner and operation Manager apologized.
I felt ok, but was it sincere.

Rudeness was the word of the day...not cool.

Thank you

Good morning all. I want to thank over 500 of my facebook friends for taking the time out of a traumatic day (for many ) and a joyous day for a few , to wish me a happy birthday. Thank you for the many text and calls.
Although, I did not wake up to the 1st woman President, I am proud of my fellow Scorpio Hillary Rodham Clinton, she broke the glass ceiling and although she lost, she conceded with class.
I had a wonderful birthday, simply because I am here to celebrate it.
The donald is now the President and I will respect the office. I will also hold him accountable.
Folks who did vote, hold him accountable. Folks who did not vote, u now know that votes count more than twitter, instagram and protest.
I fully intend to be fully engaged. I will be engaged with my sorority on the regional level. With my friends on the local level. With my local board appointments on the local level. With my gubernatorial appointments at the state level.
Be not afraid. Be informed, be empowered and be engaged.
To my Trumps supporters, this is a presidency and not a dictatorship. It is a government and not a private business, he cannot ramrod anything down the legislators throats.
And oh by the way, he is the President of all the people...

Trump is President

Trump is President. Wowwwww.
I am disappointed but not surprised.
He mobilized a conservative base fearful of the power of Obama, lgbtq,women and minorities.

What is I going to do?
Inform,empower, engage

I am not moving.  I am going to mobilize.  I am going to encourage folks to engage in the process.  Know your legislators.
Know their voting record

Do not recoil. Do not become complacent 
Do not become apathetic.

Your vote is personal.
Most people vote their values.
A vote for Trump shows that you do not value diversity, women, elderly, poor, military, blacks, Latinos,&_lgtbq community.
You value bullying over compromise.
You value shouting over listening.
You value decisiveness over inclusion.
Oh, I hear you...Hillary is a crook..
Most importantly she will listen and values inclusiveness.
That is a leader

Rushing helps nothing

Rushing helps nothing. The last 2 days, I have rushed. I forgot important appointments. I inconvenienced clients. I was embarrassed.

I wanted to blame the client that that caused me to reschedule; but that wasn't true.
The blame rest on me. I did not pay attention to who and what I was texting.
I allowed my emotions to get the best of me.

I owned up and apologized.  I will give them a panera card.

Pay attention to detail.
