I’m back after getting a vacation for the first time since last June. My body and mind are recharged, physically and mentally, and I’m ready for more blogs, vlogs and articles.
First of all, I would like to shout out the good female friends in my life. These ladies (and their mates) have really been there for me. From listening to my whining to helping me when it comes to other women, they have been there. Some of them are very honest with me also and I like that.
Terence and Twila Mosley Hoskins:
I have known both for about 17 years. They are a very fun loving, socialable couple. They are there for you whether throwing an awesome party and making sure you really enjoy yourself, or helping you out with career advice. Also, they have simply not forgotten what it means to be friends through marriage, children and other life changes.
I probably talk to Brandy more than I do most females that didn’t give birth to me. B is always ready to lend a listening ear, and is one of the most honest people I know. She lets me know how she feels, and is always a comforting person to be around. Don’t worry Brandy, the grass is cut and there will be no mayo lol!
Monica Prysock Miller:
Monica is one of my oldest friends overall, 22 years strong. I don’t see her as much as I would like, but we have been working on that. She wants to make sure I stay a part of her life, and me the same. I couldn’t be happier that she has become more fit (one of my inspirations) , found her king and married him, and is having a baby soon. Monica is undoubtedly a special person.
Rodney and Keia Davidson:
Rodney and I worked together at RA for a few years. He and his wife Keia are cool, honest and caring. They expect those around them to be the same, no half stepping. Both believe in family and keeping in touch and appreciating folks while they are here. They have been written about before and probably will again. Shoot they may be the next couple I spotlight on FB.
Teya has been an awesome person to talk to, and a great prayer partner and good for career advice. She is not ashamed to acknowledge someone in public and is simply a special, spiritual person. Teya is one of my go to sources I hit up during times of crisis and she comes through.
Carolyn D. Benton:
Carolyn is hands down one of the most intelligent, sweet and loyal friends I have. She is always down to talk, hang out or work out together (we will get that one in). She is very caring and family oriented also. She embodies much of my #imjustdrew movement as she takes friendships seriously, and is very passionate about her career and her beliefs. She has simply been a joy to be around and know.
Bryna, like her brother Thomas, has become like family to me over the years. She has made me feel very welcome in her family, and helps out her friends, family (parents, siblings and nieces/nephew) however she can. Bryna, know that you are liked and loved, and the trouble doesn’t last always!
Precious embodies her first name in every way one can, and has helped myself and my mother out so much. She has also become an awesome schoolteacher and now has found love. Yet she still remains loyal to the important people around her. She has a huge heart and is on full display quite regularly.
It’s funny the bonds you make at your job. Georgia is another RA friend of mine. We have had long deep conversations. We make time to touch base, even when we both are working odd days and hours. She is very happy most of the time, and just has such an infectious spirit about her. I’m very blessed she’s in my life.
One of my old work buddies from RA also, Sheena may seem spoiled and outspoken. She is actually one of the most caring and giving people I know. Like myself, she has a quick mouth and a joking nature. But as a church bishop and minister of music, she simply wants to show her love towards the Lord and make others happy. She also lets you know when she isn’t happy!
Now for some reason if you felt I omitted you, charge it to my head and not my heart ladies. I care for many people and I value loyalty. Perhaps I can include you in another edition.
