I am thankful for a few things, but most thankful for life and family; things that I definitely do not take for granted.

With so much going on in this world and even this country alone, I am beyond thankful that the Lord has blessed me to wake up and see another day.  It seems that the value of life is steadily declining by the day, as there is so much violence/crime transpiring.  Aren’t you thankful just to see another day?

Aside from life, I am huge on family and I am very thankful for family!  I especially look forward to the holidays, as there are so many traditions we do as a family that are special to me.  More specifically, I am thankful for my beloved parents, whom I affectionately refer to as “my babies.”  They are my biggest blessing and I constantly thank God for them and for loving me enough to bless me with them.  I often look at so many who may not have the best relationship with their family and/or their parents and I could only pray and hope that one day the relationships are reconciled.  The bond is irreplaceable and the Greatest Love of All!  I wish that for everyone.

Luvz, what are you most thankful for?


Trending bizz is a little bittersweet this go around luvz, as we welcome new life into this world and we say goodbye to a beautiful soul.

Congratulations are in order for Gabrielle Union-Wade and hubby, Dwayne Wade, as they welcomed their first child (daughter) together on November 7th via surrogate.  After a period of fertility obstacles, the couple was blessed with their miracle baby, as they put it.  The shocker is, the world had no idea the couple was expecting.  They definitely kept this one under wraps!

Welcome to the world, baby girl Wade!

On the flip side, we unfortunately and unexpectedly had to say our goodbyes to the beautiful and industry muse, Kim Porter who is also mother to four children with music mogul, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs.  Kim 47, was found deceased in her LA home on November 15th.  I think I can speak for us all when I say this one completely took us by surprise.  Social media and news reports have spiraled from the model’s death and many, including celebrities have offered their condolences.

Even I posted the following on my social media pages offering my condolences, as this is just truly heartbreaking.

My heart definitely goes out to the family, friends, loved ones and fans of Kim Porter. #RIHeaven @Ladykp

Happy Thanksgiving Luvz!
