Although I’m at work on my Thanksgiving (I gotta do what I gotta do), its an OK day for fall.
This has to be the one thing that I love about living in New York City, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Although in all my years in NYC I’ve never physically gone to any of the parades, I can still see it on TV 🙂 . I really have a strong dislike for crowds. I can tolerate them but I avoid it as much as I can.
Like all the past years, I don’t have the turkey and stuffing in my home, but we do have the Oxtail. 🙂 I know I love my Oxtail. My parents being from the Caribbean and all, I had no choice growing up.
It isn’t all about the food like most people make it. It’s about the connection with other people. I’m big on holidays; Valentine’s, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Birthday, Anniversary, Cinco De Mayo, etc. LOL. Like I use to tell my previous beau, “I love you, and I know you love me, but you don’t show me love 365 days like you should so show it on the holidays.” Although I don’t want to make an excuse for the obvious, we don’t see our families so often so we make holidays the reason. And that’s just fine with me!
I’ve loved and I’ve lost. I’ve seen many family members disappear out of my life and it’s fine because I am truly thankful for the ones that have stayed and the new ones that have appeared. I’m blessed with all of my stresses and struggles. God gave me life and I’m living!
What are you thankful for?
Thanks to my job and this scheduling that they have I have the opportunity to be up at 4:30am every morning Monday thru Friday so I can get to work by 6:00 am and I say this very dry by the way -_- … But since I’m usually on the road during my hours I get the opportunity to listen to The Steve Harvey’s Morning show. And for those who actually get to hear it as well, Steve has a dating segment on the show called Locate your Love (which by the way for you Atlanta ladies he sets up alot of dates out there) and as I happened to turn the radio on during the segment, the guy who was chosen to interview two females asked a very vague but interesting question. But don’t word me on it because it’s been hours since but just to make it simple, “How would you define a good man?”
How would I define a good man? I think personally a good man is one that takes care of his home, works his fingers to the bone to make his family comfortable, a man who is father and not a
daddy, and etc… My list can go on because I’ve described my father. We sure didn’t have the best situations but it took him ten years to finally put this kitchen in..
from every tile on that floor to the cabinets on the walls (his construction skills sure did pay off, handy isn’t he), and I’m not saying this because I’m a daddy’s girl but my father’s a good man. But behind every good man there’s a good woman. She could be your mother, aunt, sister, cousin, daughter, friend, lover, domestic partnership, just know theres a support system behind every good man.
I’m a single girl so I don’t have a beau or a husband to feel this way about yet.. but I do praise the good men I know or have once dated.
How would you define a good man?
Sorry for being so late on this November post but my month of October ran right into November. I was hoping to have a fresh start to my month but as usual something always seems to happen in this field of work. I’m so in need of a spa day or something. Although I’m not on call for my job, I still receive calls on my days off. -_- … But thank you HTC for this phone I have (the mytouch) I get to BLOCK everyone. I know I’m terrible but if you work or have worked in the Mental Health field you’ll understand just what I mean. It’s Super stressful. Everyone smokes except me!
Can’t wait for December! I have a week off and I think Jamaica it is.
Are you making any plans for the upcoming holidays?
