I Freed a Thousand Slaves

Don’t get it twisted, Harriet is not to be honored by a $20 bill. A bill she probably never seen in her life. The same paper they put her on they would deny her descendants their 40acres and a mule. On the physical it is mockery put in place to fuel a racial fire that’s already burning. However, what is used for evil can also be used for good. Tubman was a hero because she saved lives. Who is more beautiful than someone who put her life on the line for others? This is deeper than we know. She’s on the $20 bill. Two. Double. Done again. What has been done before will be done again.  And so, let the Tubman’s rise and the second age of The Underground begin.

Life

So what’s going on people? It’s been awhile since we talked together so I thought we’d do that today. So…

OK, I’ll go first.

So my husband is doing well. His leg is strong and we’re getting back in the swing of things. Though I do hate he’d have to go back to work soon…boo. Oh, and I do have an exciting new update. I’ve been on baby duty lately. No, I’m not pregnant (yet lol) but I am baby sitting and I must say he’s the absolute cutest. So yea, he’s the culprit taking up my blogging time. You cutie you!

BJ has been waking me at 7am with sweet kisses and lots of love. I mean, just look at him. Who can resist that face?

Hmm, what else? I went to Houston recently so that was pretty cool. Got to spend some much needed family time and all that good stuff. I mean, I had to do some work too but I enjoyed seeing the fam while we were there. It’s been raining a lot lately too, which of course is inspiration to write more. I’m pretty sure everyone reading this blog know how much I love the rain by now. I love the calmness of the air and listening to the wind.

That’s it for me, for now. So, what’s up with you all? How is life?
