Have y'all been watching #CherishTheDay ? It's a anthology series on OWN by Ava DuVernay that focuses on love between Black people.
The first installment features Gently James (Xosha Roquemore) and Evan Fisher (Alano Miller) as a couple falling in love despite their differences. They overcome obstacles, have disagreements, carry baggage, stumble, complicate simple shit, go through thangs, but what they feel for each other is pure and harmless, and so they have a chance.
Also, THE ONE AND ONLY Cicely Tyson is also featured in this
Anyway, I haven't seen much like this on television before--especially with a dark-skinned Black woman as the lead romantic character.
When I watch this show, I feel a great deal of grace, gratitude, and mercy. I feel wholly blessed.
If you haven't seen it before, OWN posted the first episode on YouTube. Closed captions are available in English.
I can't wait to see love between other characters--maybe even some queer and trans characters?--soon.
I said 🗣FUCK CANCER on this day in 2014. And a little more than a year later, I was declared 🗣CANCER-FREE! Okay, in full disclosure, it didn’t go exactly like that but at the end of the day, I’ve been free of that shit and doing my thing. A wise man told me, “baby, if you pay that cancer no attention it will leave you and go somewhere else.” He was right. So the moral to this post, only give your energy to the things that matter the most. If it doesn’t bring you joy, let it go🤷🏾♀️And my anniversary is actually tomorrow, I just couldn’t wait to post🙋🏾♀️🤪😀 #ipostbecauseimhappy#fuckcancer#cancerfree#myanniversary#227#fullofjoy#myenergy#supposedtobehere#cherishtheday

Your love is turning me into someone new.
— Gently “Basis” #CherishTheDay
Sade said it best, “Cherish The Day”. Appreciate someone thinking of you today, yesterday and even tomorrow. Appreciate every greeting, nice gesture, or show of kindness.
Take a chance on moments/memories! Today is not promised. Tomorrow is not promised. But what is promised is the opportunity to treat someone special.
Cherish a phone call, a text, a stop by, a invite, a greeting, a gift, a kiss anywhere.
It’s all special.
What may be little to you can mean the world to someone else.
Why not enjoy and make a memory.
We get one chance at life. Not two.
Live and love it! ❤️🤷🏽♀️

A lovely evening with brilliant artists and creatives, celebrating phenomenal work that will last a lifetime. 🎥🙌🏾🖤
It’s a weird day for me today. I take the children to school when I can ( and when it’s not windy or rainy😂😂, that’s Daddy’s job😂) and have always loved it. .. today for the first time India and Finn BOTH said mummy can we walk in by ourselves.. (Finn has been asking for ages... and to be honest Neil let’s them walk a little bit😂)and so they did.... and I am a total emotional wreck .. it’s just another phase of their life and independence is something we teach the children... but up to now they have wanted me to walk them in....blimey... it’s hard to let go!! I guess the lesson is, embrace every single phase and moment because it’s just that.. another step on their journey to total independence , and it passes so quickly xx 😱💔( and yes I know some of you are probably laughing because I should have done it ages ago😂).. xxx #mumslife#mybabies ❤️ #growinguotoofast#itslife#cherishtheday xxx
After watching “Cherish the day” the other night..I felt it was only right to post this photo of @zyle and I.
This is actually a perfect reflection of our relationship. Him getting ready to tell a joke (what he does alllll the time) and me with the watch what you say face(really wanting to laugh)... It’s funny how opposite personalities blend so well together... He likes to joke and I like to talk about any & everything(loud & all)...Nowadays it’s rare to find someone just like you, and if they aren’t that’s ok... It’s really all about balance... •
Question...Which characteristic best describes you in your relationship,marriage, or friendship?? ❤️❤️ S/O to @howelldesigns for the off guard photo 📸!!
I’ve done nothing all day. Well very little. I slept well past my usual time (was up pretty much all night scrolling through condolences, and forever memories) only to be awakened by a call that an uncle passed this morning. I never have words during these situations, so this is hard.
Honestly, I had no idea how I’d feel today after yesterday’s news. But this is even closer to home.
I lost a co-worker earlier this month, and another friend to our family lost their mom just over a week ago.
Lord, I don’t understand, but I trust You. 🙏🏾
If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been pretty excited about Valentine’s Day. I’m taking MYSELF out to dinner and a movie! It’s going to be lovely. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
...oh...and I filmed a makeup tutorial on this look. Check it out. Linked in my bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
