It seems that I stand accused,
Me and Isaac Hayes...I know that's Old School, but still one of my all time favorite songs, LAWD...
But I digress,
What I have been accused of is being an incurable romantic,
Not just in my LOVE thang,
But with all the people I love,
It's so funny because most of those same people often tell me how organized and practical I am...
And I am in the right situations,
But I do believe in romancing my peeps,
That includes my man,
My children,
My family and friends,
Remembering birthdays and special days,
And giving little things that say you are special to me,
Just seems to make sense,
I listen to a lot of conversations,
And I hear people say, especially at Christmas time, or anniversaries,
I am not going to get so and so anything,
They don't need anything,
Or they already have everything,
And in most cases I am sure that's true,
But to me the spirit of giving to my peeps has nothing to do,
With what they NEED,
It is more about what I WANT TO DO FOR THEM...
BECAUSE I LOOVVVVVVES THEM...damn I am a romantic!!!
With no reciprocal expectations,
And I don't just mean on holidays,
But any days,
And I will also admit how good it feels when someone does something for me,
One day I came home, tired as a junkyard dog,
And on my porch were a bunch of flowers wrapped in plastic,
Picking them up and sniffing them, I saw a card on them that read,
For a special lady, I love you...
One of my girls, Shay, had stopped by, hadn't heard from her in a while,
Leaving them because I was on her mind and in her heart,
Put the pep back in my step...
One of my favorite CDS in the whole wide world was recorded by my son,
Entitled 'Happy Mother's Day' recorded in 2001, telling me how much he loves and appreciates me,
I listen to it all the time...
There is nothing in the world I love to sip more than Coca-Cola Classic,
Frozen slightly...
And when my man sees my eyes glazing over,
He makes sure there is one nearby,
I know I am a hopeless romantic,
I stand accused....

Love and Blessings,

Don't it, Genesis? LOL

Somebody sweet in my life sent me a gift last week that said; "I appreciate you" and I have been feeling happy like nappy every since!

She don't know how good that makes me feel. It didn't say; Merry Christmas or Season's Grettings" but just said I appreciate you!

I am so grateful.

Taste so good like a cup of Starbucks coffee first thing in the morning.

Now ain't that love?????

Morning all!

Queen I,

Those are the best types of gifts ladies, the one giving from the heart, not the others. Those are nice too, but the ones from the heart feel much better.

I have told my husband from day one, don't just buy me something, I would prefer you to make it. But if you have to make sure it is from your heart, because expensive things are wasted on me. I want the romantic things.

I stand accused with you. I wear my badge proud.
