Freedom Friday: Snow Flurries Edition

Hey Good People,

Did ya’ll see those snow flurries today?  Winter is officially here!  I will be getting ready for another snowmaggeddon.  I just want to be on the safe side. 

It still amazes me that folks here still do not know how to drive in the snow. *smh*  Growing up in the midwest, we were  prepared.  And if not, we knew how to sit still and let God do his work. 🙂  And after the snowing  and shoveling, we had snow ball fights, built snowmen, went sled riding and finished it all with a cup of hot chocolate.  YUM!!!!  I guess I am looking forward to winter.  I am also looking forward to the weekend.  🙂  Check it out!

Side note: Why Marion Barry got a reality tv show? *lol*  Only in D.C.

Come out for a night of great music with Grammy nominated N’dambi and special guest Zo! performing and Phonte of The Foreign Exchange hosting!

Iyanla Vanzant will be speaking about her most recent book, Peace from Broken Pieces.”  The book  recounts the last decade of her life and the spiritual lessons learned—from the price of success during her meteoric rise as a TV celebrity on Oprah, the Iyanla TV show (produced by Barbara Walters), to the dissolution of her marriage and her daughter’s 15 months of illness and death on Christmas day. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Iyanla shares why everything we need to learn is reflected in our relationships and the strength and wisdom she has gained by supporting others in their journeys to make sense out of the puzzle pieces of their lives.
