Family. The roots🌳 to what makes you...well YOU!
One thing I’ve always cherished is my family. Perhaps it comes from being the youngest? Maybe because I’ve always lived close? But family is EVERYTHING to me.
Framily..when friends become family you CHOOSE. When you are blessed with framily, you feed the relationships with mutual care and time spent together.
As long as you have family...AND framily count yourself blessed and be sure to take care of them both❤️. #family#blessings#personaldevelopment#affirmations#negu#multiplesclerosis#bonusmom
I read sad news about the death of my friend Eric last night, and have been thinking a lot about him and his unbridled love for #adventure . My best memories of him are spending super fun afternoons on his sailboat on Lake #Tahoe , either talking and sipping beers in the calm, or yelping and smiling in the wind and waves. I spent this weekend absolutely #sendingit , living it up in the kind of way I know Eric would appreciate. I played 4 hockey games and bookended those with #ski days.
🤍Today, Hanzi and I skied in Eric’s memory. 🤍
So here are a few photos from today, and one from our Tahoe days, to commemorate a kind #friend who really lived his life hard, fast, and full of fun. Sending my #blessings to Eric’s friends and family who loved and will miss him so. 🦅
Gerald"Jerry" Lawson (1940 -2011)- Home Video Game Pioneer
Jerry Lawson pioneered home video gaming in the 1970s by helping create the Fairchild Channel F, the first home video game system with interchangeable games. A New York native, Lawson is one of the few African-American engineers who worked in computing at the dawn of the video game era. In the mid-1970s, Lawson helped create the Fairchild Channel F, a home entertainment machine that was produced in 1976 by Fairchild Semiconductor, where he worked as director of engineering and marketing It's hard to fathom today, but trying to make removable game cartridges was an incredibly new concept in the '70s. Lawson and his team at Fairchild had no clue how the cartridges would fare after being plugged in and out multiple times -- remember, nobody had ever done it before.
Most impressively, he taught himself most of what he knew about engineering. Lawson attended Queens College and the City College of New York before working at several firms, including Grumman Electric and Federal Aircraft. After scoring a job with Kaiser Electronics, which focused on military technology, Lawson moved to Silicon Valley. He was also one of two black members of the Homebrew Computing Club, a group that famously included Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and other Silicon Valley pioneers. #musiclovers#musictherapy#calm#calmingmusic #gratitude#gratitudejournal#blessings#videogames#blessingsonblessings #blessings#faithfulness#stepintoyourpower#gratitude #nourishnotpunish#nourishyourself#flourish#nourishtoflourish

I've always told my wife that I would rock my gray when it came. Pastoring and a lot of experience brought it on earlier than I expected. But I'm rocking my #SaltAndPepper Brother's drop a pic below if you're rocking your Salt and Pepper. #Blessings !
#SideNote ... #Wifey didn't like it at first, but this morning before leaving out of my office for worship, she looked at me and said you're a sexy man! 😍😍😍😍 I said and you're a #SexyLady !! 😘😘😘
1. 25 plus years of @alphaphiintl@alphaphi_au sisterhood. It’s a simple but large blessing to be able to reach out and know seconds later your sisters always have you. Union Hand In Hand.
2. The ability to push and move myself physically and mentally...the gift of time as a family pushing ourselves outside of our comfort zones together under the lead of the most talented trainer. @premieratsawmill which has become a safe space, another home and truly the people within it part of our family. The care and support we receive daily is priceless.
Yesterday we had 4 generations of family all in the same place eating, laughing, telling stories, eating more... and it was perfect. And then I got to meet this precious babe for the first time. To me, that’s what family is all about. I don’t know what I would do without my big, loud, crazy Lebanese family 💛
Here is a great submission of this months #MadChallenge ! To spend some time with someone you do not normally spend time with! Let’s continue to invite the spirit of unity into our homes and our lives! We look forward to more great posts! #MakeADifference#MAD
🌵Started this Sunday with ritual
Heart opening Sunday with relaxation herb Damiana you can burn the leaf 🍃 for ceremony.
Along with copal or other resin .. or solo.
For a cleansing the heart ritual - for dream enhancement like the Mayans did sitting in ceremony with this mystical plant.
The time is now ✨. Start telling a different story today, One of success and abundance. The more you speak and think of something, the more it expands. Anything you picture in your mind, you can have and create. Dare to dream bigger than you ever have and watch how fast things shift in your favour.
What has or is falling apart now is only making way for better and what is aligned with you. It’s fine to be sad, to be angry and to feel disappointment. Allow yourself to feel all of your emotions but be brave enough to also try again once you feel you’re ready. You can and you will rise above whatever has brought you down. God/The Universe makes absolutely no mistakes, trust in the unfolding 👁.
Special announcement coming soon 💥. Link in bio to work with me ❤️.
