Family First

The first family of the United States

I remember growing up and my parents installing in us that “what ever happens in our home, stays in our home”. With the way the world is today, I wonder, if other parents meant keeping love in the house. But we know that it was geared toward the “challenges” or what I will say the “lesson we should learn” encounters.

We are witnessing the First Black Family living in the White House and I’m sure everyone wants to know how they deal with challenges or lessons learned andif it was exposed with technology, it will get around quickly. It’s funny how people are drama driven and I often wonder if it have to do with what’s going on in their own home?

Do you think it’s important to know what’s going on in someone’s home when you have things you need to deal with in your home? Is your neediness faultered. WE all need to be relateable, but I think if you are not looking for solutions, but only ti air someone’s personal life you are not dealing with your own. What are the things we need to know about someone else? People had a lot to say about Michelle’s mother staying in the White House with them. What was the issue? It takes a village to raise a child and when you are in the spot light as they are you surely would want people you can trust around your growing children.

I admire the Obama’s. The fact that I get to witness a black man demonstrate the qualities of leading our nation and a black women from Chicago on his side. They seem like regular people who live a regular everyday life. I am sure it can be challenging to be compared to them. It may make a person feel overwhelmed because maybe they can’t live up to the expectations. Don’t stress yourself, let’s rejoice in being able to know anthying is possible.

I’ve heard that men are not involved with their children; physically, emotionally or spiritually. Well, this family proves that it’s a myth. Men will do what they desire. Michelle is a woman of grace and to see her operate is such elegance and being an example to her children is refreshing. She demonstrates what it look like to be submissive where it can be and doable. I am sure they are raising their children up in the way to go. Am I saying they are perfect, no! We have a real live example that will remain history.

Confused about Your Expectations

We are two days away from Christmas and family members can have all kinds of expectations. They will have these high price gifts . And be the ones who didn’t talk to you all year, but yet expect YOU to purchase what they want. The years of creativity has been among us for years with this economy. I know children are expecting all kinds of “things” this year with this technolgoy. I don’t blame them, but my concern is whether or not you appreciate what you are given.

Then there are some single females expecting that engagement ring. I just hope they don’t set themselves up for disappointment.  Howver, I hope you planted the seeds, to reap what you have sown. Familes are expected to spend time together during this holiday season, but believe it or not. Some folks don’t want too. I hope people are dealing with their family issues or challenges because we are never guranteed another day, let alone another season.   How do you gauge the reality of your expectations?  (Listen to the song by XSCAPE: Understanding).

Are our expectations clear ? I truly believe this is the time to be about family and friends.  The season of reconcilation.  Isn’t that’s why He was born in the first place?  I know some family members can be a headache, but (Keep.In.Mind)  that the hardest person to LOVE is the person who need LOVE the most. Let the gift He gave be the example: LOVE more! Happy last minute planning.
