Bye to a Friend

 Last week, I lost a classmate, Phillip Freeman, who I had just this year, reconnected with.    When I found out that he was sick, I immediately tried to reach out to him, but he didn't want any visitors or calls.  That was fine, I can respect his privacy. The last time I physically saw him was at my church, he came to a musical.  I hugged him about 3 times and he said, "Dang Gen, are you that happy to see lil ole me?" I responded that I was.  I didn't realize that would be the last time I saw him......I connected with him via Facebook and we talked via inbox  a few times. Phil's death leaves me happy and sad at the same time.  I'm happy that he is not suffering any longer and not in pain.  I'm sad, because he's not here with us anymore.  Philip was a genuine person with musical talent. He could play and SANG!!! Tomorrow and Wednesday will be hard for his family, his church family and the many friends he has made throughout the years......Prayer will get all of us thru........I'm done before my keyboard gets any wetter :).....we love you Phil....RIP.......

Well hello's been a minute.  I am trying so hard to get this website of mine off the ground.  I know I should just pay somebody to do it, but no way!!  I want to do it myself.  I am giving myself a deadline of October 20, 2010 to be finished with the paperwork and everything.

Time is of the essence. Time is something that we tend to take for granted. How many times have you said to yourself, oh I have time or I need to make time? Do we really?  I have decided that I need some "ME" time! No distractions, no phone-well, I'm trying on that one, nobody else, just me.  If you don't do it, you should try it...15 minutes or more by yourself can work wonders for you mind, body and spirit. 

Speaking of mind, body and spirit.....I have began to sell Soul Purpose Products. They are bath, body and makeup products.  I know you are probably thinking, girl, what next?  This is the last product that I am selling.  I still sell Mary Kay and Ardyss, however, Soul Purpose is geared more toward us....African-Americans, black people-however you describe yourself.  Visit my web-site and let me know what you think.

Thanks for taking this journey into a new beginning with me.....muah!

Well, I guess it's been one of those days. I am really trying to remain positive about the situations that are before me today. I said a quick prayer , so it's better already! I'm not sure if there is a full moon 24 hours a day, but it sure feels like!! Sometimes, it seems like everything is starting to unravel all at once.


Have you ever just looked out the window and said " Ahhh"? I did that just now and I feel a lot better than I did earlier. I sent my friend a text and his response was just what I needed. Yes, I said HIS. He is like a breath of fresh air, so thoughtful, considerate......I could go on and on about him.......I'll just think of him and say...."Ahhhh"!
