Salutations and Elevations #Motivators!
Today was by definition eventful. A celebration!
Many are gathered in Charlotte, NC for the NBA All Star weekend. The pictures of people across my timeline with celebrities and enjoying themselves has been nothing short of amazing.
Today, I went to a Celebration of Life for an 83 year old man, father of 11 biological children who also became father to children that were not his without hesitation. He was a man's man, someone whom if you asked him what he thought, he'd tell you "the truth." Instead of crying in pain, we celebrated with laughter and joy for physical pain that is no more.
He leaves a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
In many families (unfortunately), the only time they gather is for funerals. Many of us hadn't seen each other since childhood, other funerals or never met at all. I was blessed to at least have recognized many of them and to have been recognized.
One of my Cousins and I have decided it's time for our generation to attempt to bring everyone together while we still have some of the elders able to get around. For a large family, so many are unknown. That celebration will be #Sensational too! "The tree trunk is mighty and strong with many branches and even more leaves." M. Neal
Love yourself, love your family, thank the ancestors!
