I was putting creamer in my coffee and the words "the bridge that crossed me over" came to mind. Just a few days ago I was having a conversation with my mother and she quoted an old preacher friend who often made that statement. So and so was "the bridge that crossed them over". In other words don't get so full of yourself and forget how you arrived at your destination. I fully acknowledge that I am who I am today because of other people who were willing to allow me to cross over on their accomplishments until I obtained my own. I am eternally grateful to the following people: Dr. Bernard Silver, Bobbie Bingham, Victoria Hammon, Larry D. Pate, Dr. Rebecca Lomax, Janet Dressel, Sr. Anthony Barczykowski D.C. and James "Jim" Kelly. So often we never look back and give homage to the people who stuck their necks out for us. If any of the people I referenced asked for my assistance I would have to stop and immediately respond. But so often we get caught up i

Check it out bro I'm at work and this crazy girl shows up on my job talking a whole bunch of smack telling me I'm late with my child support. Like I don't know that." Or "girlfriend you busy? [doesn't wait for an answer] I hope you know I showed up on his job today, yeah I sure did so now everybody knows he's slack and not handling his business. Can't even take care of his own children with his picture hanging in the main lobby talking about Employee of the Month."  As Mabel "Madea" Simmons would say "you got, got." Yep you got the energy sucked out of you by someone you have a close relationship with.
