I started watching Braxton Family Values on Netflix a few months ago and I love it.

I was watching the reunion show last week and something that Tamar (one of the sisters) said I thought was a great message to all women.

She said, "To all women, family, sisters - Be cautious of who you decide to be with because they can either make you stronger with your family or they can break your family apart. " What a true and profound statement that I agree with completely.

Since I was young I always said that my family came before any man, and I didn't have a family like the Braxton's. My husband would never separate or make me choose him or his family over mine - if he did, we wouldn't be together.

As a mother it takes a lot of time and hard work to raise your children to be close and continue that relationship into adulthood. I have no respect for any man that separates or breaks the family unit. In fact, I don't have any respect for the woman that allows it.

So choose wisely ladies if you value your family.

“No matter what you've done for yourself or for humanity, if you can't look back on having given love and attention to your own family, what have you really accomplished?” - Lee Iacocca

Happy Wednesday!

Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
