As I write this note, I’m thinking of February being the month of love and the celebration of Black History Month. Love is really important to me and my family, especially right now. I lost my sister last month. This month will be spent remembering her and the love we shared as sisters. This has been a very difficult time. However, she reminded me tomorrow is not promised and we have to live our lives to the fullest. I loved my sister, Erma McBride, very much and my life will be forever changed without her.

Happy-Valentines-Day-PhotosThis month Ujima celebrates love. We will share stories about loving life, relationships, friendships, hobbies, and more. I’m excited to speak with people that help others feel good, find their purpose and live life to the fullest. We will pay homage to Black History Month as well. We will celebrate our culture and history. We have made great strides but we still have a long way to go.

During this month, celebrate the people and things that you love. Spend time with a friend, tell someone you love them, don’t forget your gift for your loved one :), drink a cup of coffee, paint, whatever you do be present in the moment and enjoy.
