Have you ever been in love with ........LOVE

My girl Sam (hey girl!) changed her FB status to "Sam is in love with......Love", after joking back and forth with her about it (her Love is a dear friend of mine, like a little brother and I adore him and them as a couple) I was inspired...
There are so many naysayers out there when it comes to love, but there are different ways to be in love with love. So here are a few ways I am in love with love.

Spiritually: Now I don't make it to church every Sunday but I know in my heart how I make it through everyday. So I am in love with the love and grace that is God.

This song gives me chills. I love that Lauryn Hill was not afraid to put her love of the almighty out there for everyone.

In Love with ME... that's right I am an in love with loving myself. In 2008 I've lived by this motto, because hell I'm the flyest and folks need to remember that.

Love... the Mr. I won't be all mushy gushy you all know how I feel about Mr F$%K it, so I'll let the song speak for itself:
Love Language - Talib Kweli

The last verse specifically. and of course what would love be without Debarge
Love Me In A Special Way - DeBarge

Love for my child... Wow this one was hard because there were so many songs. But I think this one shows how much he changed my life for the better. CJ taught me how to love more in a different way.

Love for my Mom & Momma....When I hear this song, I tear up because these women are the reason I am here. Their struggles are the reason I set goals others may doubt, but I know that no matter what happens these women love me like no other. They are my inspiration, why I get up every morning even when I don't want to. I love am in love with love because you taught me how too......Happy Birthday Mommy!

If you don't know this song, go here and listen to Bill Withers talk about the song: Grandma's hand.

My sisters... Heck who wouldn't love them, they rock. Always there for me one way or another. We try to reinforce what our momma taught us.....

"I want to go back, wanna go back to those simple days"

Love with my Girls... that's right I love ya'll cranky butts too. And its that love that keeps me on your side, even when you all feel like the world has its foot in your neck. I'll be your Iyanla Vanzant (hehe Dee) when the boys start acting a damn fool, so that you can always remember that you all are Good Girls:

I am in love my people....Black people. Look at what we've done in the last 400 years, yes we have a long way to go but as long as we don't forget our past (teens pay attention, someone forward this to Souljah boy) we are on our way....

Remember these words.....

And of course last but not least you my blog fam! I love you all... When I started this blog in February I never thought people I didn't know would show so much love . I never thought I'd be hanging out with you guys, laughing, making plans (and sometimes not keeping, sshhh Eb and Shelly Shell), and I thank you all for it.... LOVE TO LOVE YA.

"Here's my life long anthem, can't forget about you!"

And since its Friday I leave you with this... You can love your car, love your jeans, love your shoes (I see you Shelly Shell), but remember what the Blast Master said:

heheh, I had to put that one in... I just had too... HAPPY FRIDAY
