Dear President-Elect Trump

Dear President-Elect Trump,

   I wanted to write you a letter that you will probably won’t ever receive. Today you will become the president of The United States of America, the greatest country on earth. You will hold the highest position that a person can hold.

I personally watched how you insulted women, made fun of people with disabilities, tweeted your anger about other celebrities, scared immigrants with your tactics, refused to release your tax returns, and say climate change isn’t fact and so much more. But some how won the presidency, which still baffles me. You won. Now that we have moved past that, let’s have a little talk. Or should I say let me say a few things.

Many of your supporters would say not to judge you because that’s not who you really are as a person and individual.”You’re just a man trying to make AMERICA great again”. Many of your supporters would say,” give you a fair chance to run the greatest country here on earth”. You see Mr. Trump, I’m a black woman who was raised to know her history and to know where she’s comes from. History doesn’t lie and the struggles of being a person of color is hard. But being black hasn’t stopped me from accomplishing many things in my life and I don’t use that as an excuse. But facts are facts.
As a mother to a beautiful almost two year old biracial boy, who will always be considered black. I’m going to have to explain to him why he will always have to work hard to just prove he is great as the next person. You Mr. Trump have already made things hard with the insensitive things you have said and your plans to keep us divided. I will never understand how someone who says the things you say and get away with it. I know that whatever a person says from their lips, ultimately comes from their hearts. I’m not worried about all the things you have said. What worries me, is what are in your personal thoughts. Your thoughts that no one can hear.

But you know what Mr.Trump? I pray and hope you do EVERYTHING you said and I hope YOUR supporters hold you accountable. Accountability!!!! And because you Mr.Trump fought so hard to win, there is no time for excuses or to blame anyone for the decisions you will make. I hope that you honestly think before you act. Not only are you making decisions for our country,but every decision will have a consequence for the world.

The next four years are going to be tough. It might be a little rough at times. Remember this, this isn’t just a job you can quit or blame others for mistakes.

ACCOUNTABILITY ….

I personally will be watching and continue watching. Just know I don’t hate you. I hate what you represent.. You can’t erase history and facts. Don’t take America back 300 years.

I hope that if you learn one or two things from being president, the highest position in our land, it’s how to be humble and have compassion. Don’t let your ego ruin our lives

 
Sincerely,

 Staying woke in America 

🎉Happy New Year 2017🎉

Woo hoo! It’s finally 2017 and this is my first blog post of the New Year. I can officially say my husband will be heading home this year from deployment. As many of you know, my husband got extended and is now coming home later than expected. Instead of coming home soon,he will be home hopefully end of spring, early summer. Subject to change because that’s the military for you. I’m not complaining just stating the obvious.

You’re probably looking at the picture above and a little confused. I will explain in the next paragraph.
Jaxon and I were recently surprised when my husband got to take military leave( r&r) and came home for Christmas. We completely had no idea he was coming home.( if you want to see the surprise video, click this link https://youtu.be/QQMrV6IwGhI ). Definitely a surprise of a life time. (Here’s the photo after the surprise) Please excuse my face, my makeup looks a hot mess from the tears of joy.It was the fastest two weeks of my life.We did a lot upgrades to our home, got to spend quality time together and just enjoy being a family. Even if it was for a short while.(Here’s a picture of our new fire place my husband installed [ home upgrade] and a few of Jaxon Christmas gifts)
(Christmas Eve)

I can’t believe it’s 2017. So many goals and plans for this year.

Did I mention my husband comes home this year?! Woohoo 🙌🏾.  My family is so excited and can’t wait until we can reunite.

My family has been extremely blessed. I know that as long as we keep God first, stay humble, pray and count our blessings- life will be alright.  2016 was a interesting and challenging year, but I learned so much. I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

I have learned you must speak life and speak what you want in your own life. I’m welcoming 2017 with open arms, positive vibes, love and faith in God.

A lot more content coming on the blog.

I would like to personally thank each and everyone of you. It means so much to me that you come to my website and read the things I blog about. I have received so much positive feed back, that I plan to do more post. Many people have requested more food recipes. And I have a lot of fun, easy, great tasting recipes for you all.

Here’s to the best year yet! Happy New Year and don’t forget to subscribe for all my latest updates.

😘💕Xo Mia 💕😘
