thanksgiving 11-12i don’t celebrate valentine’s day. never have & likely never will. don’t take me for a cupid hater. i’m an official romantic at heart. give me a sappy lifetime movie and i’m in love. what i’m not down with is a designated day.

why not just go along to get along? you say….

love deserves better. love is everything and knows no boundaries. it cannot be contained and confined to 24 hours. heart shaped chocolates can’t replace the taste of unconditional bonds.

now more than ever love needs to rise to its rightful place; as our being.

love is not a day, it’s who you, me, we are…

let’s strive to love everyday, all day.

  • Comments Off on Hot off the Press: Daddy made my world

i just got off the phone with my dad.  as usual he’s his calm and super cool self.  hearing his voice gives me extra strength i didn’t know i had.  it’s the encouragement of his words and laser sharp knowing that his daughter can do anything.  i have no problem at all stating that i am a daddy’s girl and wear the label proudly.

girls need their fathers.  girls need a male image to look up to. someone who shows them what true “man” love looks like. girls need that yang energy only men can bring to the parenting table.  i grew up with my dad (and mom) and i know it made a difference in how confident i felt and still feel about myself.

i’m sure it’s no surprise to anyone that i’m a pretty independent lady.  i don’t want any man trying to baby me; i have a father for that! but i also know that i like my man’s shoulder to lean on; it’s okay to show him my soft side.  since dad was always there, i know i can count on my honey…

dads make a girl’s world. mine certainly did.  and for that we need to honor our fathers so much more. we should let fathers know how much we appreciate what they have done and continue to do for us.  

which is why i am so inspired by the founders of Ms. Jessie’s hair products, Miko and Titi Branch. they are supporting a new documentary film, From Fatherless to Fatherhood, created by Kobie Brown. Check out the Fatherless to Fatherhood Trailer

this movie is amazing! i left the screening this past weekend so full.  it was really beautiful to see a film with so many fathers talking about the love they have for being a dad.  it was just tear jerking to see that love reflected back in their children’s eyes.  it’s a rarity that fathers get that much play in the media.   i salute Kobie for making a movie that the world needs to see.  

please support, spread the word and check out the dvd. you can host fatherhood parties, organize discussions on fatherhood, gather the kids for movie night!  Visit http://www.fromfatherlesstofatherhood.com/site/store/#ecwid:category=0&mode=product&product=8255569
