Have a wonderful holiday week. Yes I say Holiday, because the parks and beaches started the fireworks Saturday night. What a wonderful way to enjoy the fireworks with your family. Some people opted to have their BBQ on Saturday as well because the holiday falls on a day in the middle of the week. It wrecks the 3 day weekend. Whatever day you celebrate the 4th of July, have fun and be safe.
Why should our children graduate from college? They should graduate from college, so there won’t be such an economic gap between college grads and everyone else. College graduates earned on the average 56%more than high school grads in 2015. The gap widens as the need for more educated and skilled workers are needed.As parents, it is our job to guide our children while they are in elementary, middle and high school. Encourage them to do their best in school, so they can get scholarships to go to college . If they don’t get a scholarship, they can start at a junior college first completing the mandatory courses. Then transfer to a university for the remaining two years. There are loans and grants your children can apply for,to help pay for college. Your children can also apply for part-time work on or off campus.Let’s prepare our children ahead of time, so they can enjoy all of the economic advantages this world has to offer.
Go graduates Go!

Sunday May 13th is Mother’s Day. I want to wish all the Mothers a very special Mother’s Day. I pray that their children acknowledge and appreciate them. Here are five of many things a mother is:
1. A mother is your mother for life.
2. A mother is someone who nourishes you with life and love. When she is pregnant she eats well, exercises, and gets plenty of rest ensuring that her children have a fighting chance at coming into this world healthy. It doesn’t stop there, once her children are born there are the daily routines, feeding, changing diapers, guiding, cuddling, reading and singing, keeping them safe, and loving them unconditionally all at the same time.
3. A mother goes the extra mile, whether it is the first day at school or your graduation from college and or everything in between and after.
4. A mother encourages her children to get to know God for themselves, so they can stand on their own two feet in times of adversity.
5. A mother never stops caring and loving her children, just because they grow up, but she realizes she has to pass the torch so her children can care for their spouse and children.
In essence, if your mother is still living, love, cherish, celebrate and appreciate her while you have the opportunity to do so. I thank God, I gave my mother her flowers while she could smell them.
My mother is no longer with me and my mother-in-love I never met. However, I can say our mothers instilled the love in both my husband and myself, which we have passed on to our children.
My husband and I just celebrated another year of living on this earth. We share the same birthday, so we can never forget . This year we went for a no stress fun-filled day. We spent the day at Universal Studios eating junk food while pretending we were kids again. I must say two rides through me for a loop, the infamous Jurassic Park and Revenge of the Mummy. After those rides, I just wanted to take in the sights and get something to eat. So that’s exactly what we did and we enjoyed every minute of our no stress fun-filled day.
I was so overwhelmed this weekend. Starting with the Marine Corp Birthday Friday November 10th and Veterans Day Saturday November 11th. There was such and outpouring of love and respect for our veterans . Businesses had special deals and discounts just for the veterans, from free meals, free hair cuts, health screenings, 50% off furniture, free dinner and a show at certain Las Vegas Hotels to churches recognizing the veterans and everyday people just going about their day and recognizing the veterans by merely saying Thank You For Your Service. All of this is great, but we need to take care of our veterans, get them trained, so they can provide for themselves and their families. They sacrificed so that we could live the American Dream, let’s show them the same respect . The following are 7 things we should do for the veterans :
There are only a few days left in October . As you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. If you have not done so, at least schedule an appointment . Mammograms and self evaluation along with having your doctor examine your breast are the keys to early detection. Schedule your appointment now!
Don’t let anyone tell you what you should be doing in your house with your family. Where you should worship and how you discipline your children is your business. How often you clean your house or what you cook for dinner is also your business. The marrow of this story is keep your girlfriends out of your business.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. I want to encourage every lady to get a mammogram . You should know your history. It determines when and how often you should have a mammogram . The mammogram is uncomfortable but the benefits of early detection outweigh the discomfort . So schedule your mammogram today.
Don’t forget 102.3 KJLH Radio Free will present the 1st annual “Men’s Empowerment Summit this Saturday September 23, 2017 from 9am to 1pm at Cal State University, Dominguez Hills. The summit will address issues in our community with the emphasis on men! It will be a day of leadership, mentoring, screenings, inspiration and information on everyday things that are vital. There will be information for our Veterans. Also there will be an array of motorcycles.
Ladies, invite the men in your family to come out. Let’s keep them happy, healthy, and informed.
Hey Ladies, it is almost time the Men’s Empowerment Summit. It’s next Saturday September 23, 2017 from 9am to 1pm at Cal State University, Dominguez Hills. We need to encourage all the men in our lives to come. It is time for our men to take control of their lives, starting with their health and well-being. It is necessary for men to take care of themselves, so they can lead and be an example for the next generation of men.
Let’s make this a great event by bringing our men.
