It's going down to 8 degrees. 

& you're in a warm bed with your spouse next to you.

Even if you actually decide to sleep.

BEAUTIFUL, awesome AmAzing

Black love is a beautiful thing once you learn how to embrace it.

Black love is attention to detail and does not begin between your legs.

Black love is not about just being there, but going there, staying there, living there, and giving everything in between.

Black love is awesome times 5 multiplied by 10 with no square root because it is a circle that never ends.

Black love is a dash of him, and a pinch of her, mixed with an ounce of amazing sizzle and served on a platter with a touch of meant to be. Full of fire!

Being In.........Love

It's like having a special world within this one. So far removed from reality, yet so real you have no idea how you could have ever lived without it.

Being in love.

It's like having each and every holiday wrapped in beautiful brown flesh, then wrapped around you.

Being in love.

It's like the best thing you've ever tasted but better because it is what God prepared especially for you.

Being in love.

It's like every day being a pay day and Saturday with no taxes coming out of your check, and free medical.

Being in love.

It's like having 365 birthday's, 365 days a  year, and having a party to celebrate each and every one.

Being in love.

A Good Day For Divorce?

Last Sunday was January 12, by far the most wonderful day of the year. It was a bright, sunny day. The sky was clear. We had a wonderful church service, and it was MY birthday. I spent each and every moment of it from sun up to sunset with my lovely wife by my side. So imagine my surprise when I found out that for some 1-12-2014 was a tragic day.

More couples will decided to divorce on January 12 than on any other day of the year, it is claimed.

Lawyers believe many couples whose marriages have reached a breaking point have stuck together over the past year as they calculated whether they could afford to go their separate ways when the economy has not fully recovered from the recession.

They predicted that many couples have stuck together for one last Christmas as a family then split up the week that their children go back to school.

Legal experts are expecting a record number of separating spouses in the New Year because the unemployment rate and the crumbling housing market are still struggling to recover in some parts of the country. This puts relationships under greater strain.

The end of any marriage is a tragedy, and an unending circle should never be broken. 

There is strength in unity, and triumph in perseverance. There is no reward in giving up. Remember why you fell in love.


Good Day, Better Night.

3 Ways To Tell If You're Being Used

I write about black love for two reasons. Because I love black love and I am black and in love. But no matter who you are it is impossible to be in love with anyone until you learn how to love yourself.

The most important part of loving yourself is being able to recognize when someone doesn't love you the way you deserve to be loved. Unfortunately some people love what you can do for them, and not for who you are. Here are just a few reasons to tell if you are being used.

#1. They only call you when they need, or  want something. These people never call just to see how you feel or how your day was unless it's followed by a sob story to separate you from your hard earned money, precious time, and your sanity.

#2. They're never there when you're in crisis. Rain falls on the just and the unjust, and life is not perfect. When you're going through this person can't even provide so much as a comforting shoulder for you to cry on.

#3. When you ask for a favor either they won't do it, or they're not around for you to ask. You feel alone even when they're there.

T.L.C. (Tender Loving Care)

I'm lying here congested and in need of some TLC.
I barely open my eyes and you bring that red medicine to me.
I'm tired and I don't feel right, and I pray that I can get enough sleep tonight to feel good enough to go to work.

Breakfast in bed, and even though I said it doesn't matter how you make my eggs, I'm glad you knew how I'd want them anyway.
Got a 2 hour nap in the middle of the day,
With no kids knocking on the door, and nobody asking me to fix a broken this or charge a powered down that.

You love me.

You feed me.

I need you.

You need me.

But I needed you more today.
