When you love someone you want them to be proud of you. You want them to think there’s nothing in the world that you can’t handle. Not doing this is utterly crippling to you.

Happy New Year folks! Obviously it isn’t Christmas anymore, but I have to get my Christmas vaycay on here before any more time goes by. I’ll save the suspense and tell you from now, this post is about the Christmas holiday I spent with my gf and how I met her mother for the first time. The Build-Up: Up until the night of my birthday, I have never met my gfs mom. So as we drove to Jersey, I prayed to God that He help the visit go well. I tried to hold it together a lil bit because my gf was way more nervous than I was. But as we got closer, I felt a little short of breath. I mean, if this trip did not go well, there would be a forever looming shadow over our relationship, especially during the holidays. My gf and her mom are extremely close. A day doesn’t go by when they don’t speak. They’re like best friends. So the pressure was huge. The pressure of meeting your gfs mom and her best friend at the same time. First Impressions: Walking in I knew she would hug me. So we hugged. We smiled. She opened the gift I brought for her. Which were just all her favorite snacks that I got from a reliable source . She gave me socks, gloves, and a body wash with matching spray. We sat. We ate. We watched this funny ass ventriloquist (remind me to post some of his stuff later) and we had real good casual conversation. Although I had to stop myself from saying baby a lot and being overly affectionate, as the time went by I did relax a little. Taking Notes: I saw a lot of qualities in her that her daughter posses and I wasnt surprised. “They” say if you want to see what your future will be like, take a long look at what your partners parents are doing. This is the second time in my life that I’ve had the opportunity to meet someone’s parent, and they are just alike now and I’d bet any amount of money they’ll always be that way. My gf is her mothers daughter in every way. If she didn’t talk about her dad I’d think her mom did it all on her own lol. If you knew her you wouldn’t think that was so far fetched either. She’s a pretty strong and independent woman. Bonding: Idk if we bonded bonded lol, but we did get to talk a lot. She never shut me up either. She asked me questions about my family and gave me all kinds if lovely stories about her daughter. I was polite, respectful, attentive, etc. My gfs nerves got better so I knew it was going well. Aside from watching some really great movies, lounging, talking til 3am and visiting one friend of my gfs, that’s it. No major fouls. I did say baby like twice and almost died but her mom didn’t say anything about it. Lol whew… Overall I made it out alive and it was a nice Christmas vaycay. Results: Her mom called the other day and said that I was a very nice girl and she had nothing negative to say. Guess I did more than ok.
I wish I could just hit someone in the head and then point to the nearest kid as the culprit lmbo.
I can’t tell you the last time I gave someone a gift outside of my immediate family and gf. And even the adults in my immediate family don’t get much, it’s mostly the children.
Moving on, I have given someone a gift recently that doesn’t fit any of the above categories and I wanted to share.
My life has been so hectic lately… I almost missed your day. You’re always on my mind, so it’s not that I’ve forgotten you. My life has been on fast forward it seems. I feel like I’m changing by the minute. I’m embracing this moment to write to you and wish you a very Happy Birthday.
Most people never know when its going to happen, but the real mystery is will you be ready when it does.
My grandmother on my dads side passed away. I’ve been waiting to clear my head before writing this post. The Saturday that I found out, my gf had just said, “Let’s go visit her.” I called my aunt who lives with her only to find out she had just taken a nap and didn’t wake up.
Her name was Geneva Pritchett Alexander, her friends and family called her Genny. I called her grandmother, because she refused anything else. Any abbreviation of grandmother was improper and if you used it you were what she called simple. Lol and she would would quickly let you know, that was not from her side of the family.
So I was out to brunch with some friends and one of them brought this bumper sticker to my attention. We were talking about the upcoming election. How important it is to get Obama back in office, etc, etc. So my friend tells me about this bumper sticker she kept seeing around. It was OBAMA in all caps and written underneath in small letters Psalm 109:08.
The scripture immediately stood out in my head so I pulled out my phone to read what she had already begun telling me. Psalm 109:08 reads: Let his days be few; and let another taker his office.
Right away I think you see this is not an OBAMA supporter bumper sticker.
This scripture comes from the Psalm of David that was for the Chief Musician… It’s a cry for vengeance.
It isn’t possible for every human in the country to be satisfied with our President or any President for that matter. But to wish death on him is a bit extreme. The scripture goes on to say things like, let his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg… It gets bad. You should look it up.
There are shirts with this scripture too that also say Pray for Obama. It’s ridiculous how far people go sometimes. It’s not enough to just disagree with someone or have another opinion. Nowadays, whoever isn’t on your side is labeled an enemy. The amount of anger and animosity that people hang on to is sickening.
What do you think? Is this message going too far? Does anyone agree with the bumper sticker? Let’s talk.
In exactly seven days, when I go to bed that night, I will be curled up around my gf. That’s right folks, we are finally closing the distance. I couldn’t be more excited too. I mean, she was my first real, legit relationship and it started long distance.
That made it extremely hard, but through all of our ups and downs, we’ve made it this far. The possibilities are endless.
I’m looking forward to just being in her space and watch our movie play .
