Sharing Valentines Day LOVE Throughout the Year

by Marlon on February 15, 2013

What does FAMILY mean to you?

How important is FAMILY?

What do you value most about your FAMILY?

Sharing Valentines LOVE Every Day

 I encourage you to answer these questions because it’s easy to get caught up in the fast-pace of hectic schedules, urgent deadlines, and non-stop busy work.

Personally, I can relate because I’ve been there where the days fly by with the months becoming distant memories as the years continue to roll on.

So how are you balancing life in managing the pressures of work, paying bills, staying healthy and experiencing loving relationships?

This is the $1 million question because we’ve all been challenged where we feel like there just isn’t enough time to get everything done.

So what’s the solution to ensure that your FAMILY is not at the bottom of your to-do list?

One possibility is making the commitment to communicate your love with at least one family member every day.

You can express your love while enjoying a meal together.  You can pick up the phone and call someone to say, “I was just thinking about you and I want you to know that I appreciate you.”  And for the high-tech generation, yes you can even post a facebook message, send an email, or write a quick text message letting a family member know how much you care.

It doesn’t have to be something huge to communicate your love because it’s the little things in life that truly matter.  People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

We all want to feel love and be appreciated.

You are blessed with loved ones in your life.

Schedule the meal, pick up the phone, or send a text message to share your love with Your FAMILY.

Can you imagine what will happen when you start reaching out to a loved one every day?… Your relationships will grow tighter and stronger.

Let’s do this because having healthy relationships will enhance the quality of your life.

Are you up for the opportunity?

I am.

This is important because the younger generation will see, by our example, just how special FAMILY really is.

Remember, the younger generation is watching us so let’s model the importance of sharing love with family.

They deserve to experience a tight and loving FAMILY.

Communicate Your Love!

Children Are Gifts

by Marlon on December 21, 2012

Children grow up so fast.

I remember when Jade was born… The first time I held her… She was so small and precious.

And I remember like it was yesterday when the nurse whispered the gender of our next baby in Jade’s ear.

Jade smiled and said with excitement, “Baby Brother!”

WOW!  Memories are so precious.

My True Blessings - Jade & Cory My Blessings – Jade & Cory


Jade is now 5 and will be turning 6 next month and Cory is now 2 and will be 3 in 3 months.

Where did the time go?

They are growing up so fast.

Through them, I am reminded just how special life is.

With their new discoveries, their new words, their new adventures, I am reminded of the importance of BEING IN THE MOMENT.

Thank you God for blessing Syreeta and me with our precious gifts named, “Jade and Cory.”

My commitment is to spend quality time each day with them so NEW memories are created.

What are you committed to do for the children in your life?

Who Are You Really?

January 10, 2012

Isn’t it interesting how when you first meet someone, everything seems “perfect” because it’s new, fresh and exciting.

And sometimes, you are shocked because the “real” person is not who you originally thought he or [...]
