Did you hear the one about blacks losing the right to vote?

Today was definitely an emotional roller coaster at work. I returned my voice mails, ordered floral arrangements and put a rude secretary in check all before I sat at my desk or had a cup of coffee. The first e-mail I opened was about the death of a friend/co-worker. Damn, what a way to start the day. After regaining my composure and putting his transitioning in perspective, I realized he was much better off because his wife said he’d been in so much pain lately.

Then, I found out that one of the trifling-a** wanna be big shots was about to get his due. That was a definite high. It was about time. I don’t wish any ill will on anyone so I left him in the Lord’s hands a long time ago. Yeah, me, the self-confessed control freak. Living by Exodus 14:14 has been a challenge but God operates in his time not ours. Pardon the Ebonics, but I learned that I ain’t in control of nothing and nobody but me.

Anywho, I managed to get through the work day by laughing with co-workers, chatting with one of my sorors and solving some problems for some folk along the way. Today was really a great day. Peace and Love, y’all.
