28 Reasons on my 28th birthday 

There are so many reasons for me to be grateful for the last 28 years. I have decided to focus on those things and the people in my life that make life so great! On your birthday, make a list of what and who you are grateful for! 

Here are the 28 Reasons why 28 years have been so amazing: 

1. My relationship with God – for guiding my steps and for your grace.

2. My daughter – for her laugh, smile and for making me a stronger woman. 

3. My mother – for her love, continous support, and for being there as a mentor, good parent to me, and grandparent to my daughter.

4. My father – for his love, advice, support and for being a role model, awesome father and grandfather. 

5. My younger sister – for your kind heart, your love, and for your consistent support. You are a wonderful auntie! 

6. My daughters Godmother – you have been there as a friend and cousin; always giving her time, laughs and long talks.

7. My aunts, uncles, all of my cousins -from my mom and dads side, the memories, the laughs, hugs and love means so much!

8. The father of my daughter – seeing him with her brings me so much joy. 

9. My best friend (she knows who she is) – you are laughs, memories, love, and light in my life. 

10. My Godsons – all three of you are amazing young boys and men, you are capable of everything you want, with God on your side. 

11. My friends (near and far) – you are all so uniquely beautiful. I have a rainbow of friends and it is such a blessing. different cultures, races, genders, religions…all so beautiful, understanding, and uplifting!

12. The Pittsburgh Black Breastfeeding Circle  – these women helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life, battling depression and breastfeeding was not easy, but I successfully nursed for 14 months with their support! 

13. My It Works! team of Distributors – I am new to the business and being a business woman, and I feel so welcomed, valued, supported while receiving help tightening, toning, detoxing, and cleansing my body and getting out of debt while doing it. 💚

14. My place of employment – for accepting me and taking a chance by giving me the opportunity to support my daughter after my unpaid maternity leave. 

15. My BA in Creative Writing -although its rare to make money in it, I learned that if you use punctuation, you can write how you would like to. Your tone, style, should be unique.

16. My MSW degree – the day I decided to take some social work courses for an elective during my undergrad, was the day I knew that helping others was my passion. 

17. My Strengths-Based Family Workers Credential class and classmates – for showing me the true importance of self-care. 

18. My church – for allowing me to learn about God and experience rock climbing, cave exploring, paint ball, a zip line, high ropes courses, and for a famine where we slept in refrigerator boxes overnight, in the winter. 

19. Precious Frazier, CEO of Rock Your Reality – for her mentor-ship in building my blog and brand. 

20. Iced Coffee, Dark Beer, and Red Red Wine 🍷🍷🍷 – you top off the night

21. For Ladies Night – the dancing, singing, laughing, bathroom talks… I love every chance I get!

22. The #Blacklivesmatter movement – for valuing human life, for making strides in protecting black girls and boys from police brutality, and for defying discrimination 

23. The Women’s March for Peace – for placing value on protecting women and girls

24. The LGBT+ community – for Pride week, defying gender, sexual orientation, and religious standards; we are all equal.

25. Alessia Cara – you are the voice of this generation; you shine a light on uniqueness and ignoring popular culture. 

26. The WordPress Blogging community and my 500+ followers – you have liked, re-blogged, gave advice and kind words by commenting, and to those who have shared my posts on social media, I have grown so much!!!!

27. My 4th grade teacher – you were always for peace and love…we have reconnected and no matter what, you are an inspiration

28. Youth and families – youth are the foundation of society and their families provide the foundation; build up families, build this nation.
