Today’s Words of Wisdom: A Mother’s Love…

MothersLove I am who I am today because of the guidance, dedication, devotion, and sometimes heavy handed lessons, that I received from the many mothers in my life.  I learned a long time ago that life’s journey is only as rich and as colorful as the people you encounter, and the lessons learned, along the way.  I owe a great deal of my journey and life’s successes to my mother, grandmother, aunts, sister friends, sorority sisters, and mentors who have been and or continue to be in my life.   They are all beautiful women who truly know the meaning of faith, pain, sacrifice, and unconditional love.


To  Patricia Ann Barnes, my mom;  Geraldine Barnes and Thomasina Ivey, my dearly departed Grandmother’s;  Estraleita Anderson, Darren Ivey, Pamela Smith, and Regina Hudson, my Aunts; Naomi Barnes, my sister;  Rie Maiden, my friend;  Richlyn Neal, my sister-in-law, the many mothers of R.O.T.D., Lambda Psi, and Apalachin Alumnae, my sisters of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc; my colleagues, and so many more, I wish you a blessed and very Happy Mother’s Day!  I would like to thank each of you for the work you do in the tireless and thankless job that is being a mother.  I hope that one day I am granted the opportunity to be a mother as wonderful as each of you!

Being a mother may not always bring you riches or fame, but being a mother is a gift only a few lucky ones are blessed to attain!

#WednesdayWisdom: Past pain can become the filter through which we see everything in our lives. And this is why gratefulness is necessary to get free from hurt. There is always something to be grateful for; even in the midst of our deepest sorrow. @NonaNotNora writes about this in her book Success from the Inside Out.

Good times with great people while doing a little philanthropy at the annual @apalachinalumnaedst “Harlem Renaissance” Scholarship Gala this weekend. • • • The solo shots.

Lookin’ like a real life snow globe...I’m up to my calves in snow. Winter wonderland came to Binghamton today. Florida, I heard you want me back? #Brrrrcats #SnowDay #ItsColdOutside #WinterWonderland
And on the first day of #Advent the Lord gifts us— Hope. “When the world says give-up, Hope whispers try one more time” ... and God reminds, “the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” —Lamentation 3:22-23 #Hope #Bibleverse #QOTD #Faith #HelloDecember #ChristmasSeason
#ICYMI: FS(ucker)U = #GatorBait; nothing new. #GoGators #ItsGreatUF #GatorNation
Tis the season for gratitude. Today, and everyday, i’m thankful for God’s lessons, unfailingly love and continued grace in the lives of all whom I love. #Thankful

Today we cast our vote to continue on the road to a bigger, better and brighter future because our #Vote is our voice and #everyvotematters. #ElectionDay #Election2019 #EveryVoteCounts #WeAreBinghamton #BinghamtonU
