this is my Amina III and her mini me. I won’t give her a name because, then I’d have to keep her. This is Amina’s 2nd single birth. I just have to say that something is really wrong in the world when people are having litters and pets are having single births!

lemme tell you why I say practice #gratitudedaily!!

 I’m at Meijer, in the line for Huntington Bank, there a sista in front of me making a deposit. She has my two favorite colors in her nails. I tell her how pretty her nails are, she snatches her hand back cuz the polish is chipping. I say, “don’t be shamed, look at my hands. I’m long overdue for a manicure.”  I tell her about my blog and how those are my favorite colors. We chop it up for a second while we make our deposits and say goodbye. 

I decide to pick up a few things while I’m there. So, a few minutes later, I’m standing in the pet supply aisle, and she comes up to me and says, “Ooh, I’m so glad you’re still here! God just recently blessed me, by me winning my lawsuit, and I wanted to bless someone else.” Then she digs in her purse and hands me forty dollars. My knees buckled as I shouted, “PRAISE GOD”, because while I know, FULLY, about God’s Grace, I’ve never had a random stranger just walk up to me and hand me money. And even though I’ve literally been getting to work in pennies, cuz my money’s been tied up in a bunch if different places, I didn’t need it because I got paid today. 

I took her hand and said, “Father God, I thank You for Your blessings and bounty, and for putting it on this woman’s heart to share her good fortune with me. Please reward her ten fold, and put us both in a position to be a help and guide to all your servants. We thank You for the good, and write ask Your protection from and forgiveness for the bad. Amin.

I never got her name.She left. I forget everything I came for except for what I’d already gotten. I left. 

That’s why I PRACTICE GRATITUDE DAILY!!

Every time I watch it, it gets closer to the top if my favorite #movies list.

I feel favored that my experience, growing up #BlackandMusliminAmerica, wasn’t like this. I had bad experiences with Muslims and Christians alike, and teasing from the ignorant cousins to get over, but looking many of their lives today, I’m getting the last laugh.
