I like to tell people to “strive to be better than  you were yesterday” and if I am having a bad day I tell myself “This too shall pass”
What is your favorite movie and why?
I have two actually “Point of Know Return” its an old movie but I loved it because it took a woman who was down and out and made her over to become a strong beautiful woman who could kick A**. and my other is “Love and Basketball” because I love romance, and I am mushy like that “Double or nothing” (tear).

Mommy duties take up most of my free time but if I get away I may catch a movie or go to the comedy house for a good laugh or two.

I want to say “Thank You” to all that have been there for me when I was going through some of the most challenging moments in my life.
