BC: "Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." -Albert Einstein | Carrie, Clarence, James, Vincent, Gloria, Georgianna & Dorothy | Lawrence | Ella
FC: Our family is a circle of strength and love... with every birth and every union the circle grows. Every joy shared adds more love... Every crisis faced together makes the circle grow stronger.
1: A family is like a circle the connection never ends and even if at times it breaks in time it always mends. A family is like the stars somehow there always there families are those who help who support and always care. A family is like a book the endings never clear but through the pages of the book their love is always near. A family is many things with endless words that show who they are and what they do and how they teach you so you know but don't be weary if it's broken or if through time its been so worn families are like that- they're split up and always torn but even if this happens your family will always be they help define just who you are and will be apart of you eternally.

69: Today God is allowing me to marry my second best friend. For those that know me know that God is my ultimate friend. God allowed Carl and I to meet on January 30, 2001. Two people from different worlds with the same goals for life. God allowed me to meet the heart of Carl the first day that we met and have shown favor in our courtship from that day forward. When some family and friends did not understand, we did because what God had for us was just for us. I knew that our relationship was for a time such as this because my God allowed me to join him where He was working in my life. God knew that our road was different and some would not understand, but God said to me to trust Him and not man. So, because I trusted God and never doubted, He made my world with Him complete by joining Mr. Carlisle Muhammad and I in marriage on April 27, 2003. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
