Peace and Blessings Family!

Thank you Brother HODEE for being ahead of me again for our birthday celebration!! ... :love:

You are so wonderful, prompting me to get this thread up so we can begin talking about this more officially!

It is not much different for me now, than it has been all of our 20 years. I want to do lots, everything a mind can imagine, but must be happy with us still being here. It has taken much effort to keep us here, I am happy for that. If I were to begin thinking about all that we don't have, and could have, I will start crying.

So rather than that, I immerse myself in what is, and try with my might to stay thankful for it. It's been a long, hard, and sacrificing 20 years, oftentimes wondering if it is the right thing for me to be doing, as I continued forward. It is very easy to shift between what is and what is not, saddened quickly, as seen in these few words already written.

Before I get too caught up, I have to stop myself.

I have to be happy with what is.

I will continue doing my best for us, providing a place where Black people can come together respectfully. I am honored by all of the wonderful Sisters and Brothers that have lent themselves to the effort, giving what they could and would.

20 years ago, I never knew we would make it a day, let alone 20 years.

Now, 20 years later, I still do not know about tomorrow.

I Love You HODEE and Family ... :love:

I have ideas about our 20th year celebration and will be trying to pull them off.

Everything costs money, time, expertise, energy, etc., usually more than I have to give.

We have managed to live, and I hope we will be able to continue doing that, if nothing else.

Love You! :kiss:

I am so deeply grateful for you and your sacrifice!!!
Oh My Good God. Thank you so much for your sacrifice. I Hope that one day
you will truly be rewarded, because you are brilliant. I wish I could understand
what you do, and have the kind of professionalism that you do to keep this
community going as it has been. I bow to you, Sister Destee.

Ohhhhh Sister Chevron Dove ... :blush: :cry: :blush:

You are soooooo wonderful!

Thank you for the love, support, encouragement, money, help, wisdom that you have shared here all the years! It makes it all worthwhile for me, to have you and Sisters and Brothers like you that care about us and our people. That is truly what this was all about to begin with. I have been able to stay true to our original mission and goal ... in a world where these things seem to have no value ... except for to a select few like you and me and us ... :D

It's sooo heartwarming to know that I'm not as krazee as I may appear, that others believe with me. That I am not alone. That is my reward and it is a great one. Should God see fit to let there be another, of course I will be grateful ... but I am already grateful ... already blessed ... already happy to have been given the desire of my heart!

I Love You Sooooo Much!!!!

Thank You Sister Chevron Dove! :kiss: :kiss: :kiss:

Happy Birthday to USSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! ... :birthday1:

Love You!

Sister Destee how have you been? It's been a while but I'm glad to be back. I see many changes so I'll browse around to get my feel of things again

Destee, my Sister!! I am sending you greetings with love from a rainy and relentless overcast Michigan! But you continue to bring sunshine into my life and for that I am eternally grateful! I LOVE the new look and features in the community. I hope you're enjoying your best life. Love and peace...:heart:
