Happy Valentine's Day


It is Valentine's Day so I am sending out a Valentine's Day greeting to all of my loyal readers, both male and female (hince the masc. image above). Let's face it, even though Valentine's Day is strong enough for a man it was made for a woman. That being said, if I am man enough to wish all of you a happy and blessed Valentine's day, regardless of your gender, you best except it in the spirit for which it was given. (Wow, why to force the love, huh?).
Anyway, for all of the prayers, kind words and advise you sent to me while I was ill, thank you very much. It is nice to be loved by love ones, but even nicier to feel that love from strangers.
This is my first Valentine's Day, as a Sergeant, so I went out and bought little boxes of chocholates to give to all of the females that work for me and all of the female Sergeants I know. The men can go to hell! I also, of course, bought a small box of chocolates for my little nephew and a big box for my mom (even though she don't need them).
Oh, and in the spirit of Black History month: Did you know that this is Fredrick Douglass' birth day? Also, on this day in 1867 The Augusta Institute was opened in Atlanta. It would later become known as Morehouse College.
God blessed and remember to treat the people in your life as if everyday was Valentine's Day and carry yourself with the knowledge that everyday IS a moment in Black History for you.
One Man's Opinion. The only one that counts. LOL. Peace.
