Why we should celebrate holidays with JOY?

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen and Everything In Between:

As the holidays have been rolling in, I have been thinking about Why we should celebrate holidays with JOY? I have noticed that many people become sad, depressed and hopeless around this supposed to be joyful time. I have even noticed my own lack of excitement around the holidays and I am writing to check myself and maybe there is someone else who needs to reevaluate their holiday mood.

I have noticed that particularly around the holiday season, families have lost children (R.I.P Damiyah and anyone else) and close family members to illnesses. It is something about this time that life usually takes a unique turn. I have recgonized this as a time of giving.

Giving is something that should be done daily, whether giving of your time, space, mind, soul, heart, spirit, body and more. Giving should occur. Support Loads of Love, to stay updated follow @rdaugett_catering or @iamfreakii on IG or twitter.

I tought about Christmas and how in the Christian community, we celebrate Jesus's birthday on this very day. My mind began to think how unselfish God is that on his birthday or day of celebration, we receive gifts and whether you received 1 or 100, it doesnt matter. God's love is the greatest gift you could ever receive and he presents you with it everyday. I am so enamored with how we celebrate Christmas with a Christmas tree with family. The tree is a representation of your family tree and underneath are gifts to and from God's gift. Do you understand what I am saying? We are God's gifts that he so kindly shares with the world.

For those who have lost a child or family member around this time, dont take their passing as a lost. Take it as a gain. God gave you his gift, his child and he decided that you would present him with the amazing gift of returning his child home to him during this holiday season. He did not want your child, sister, mother or friend to have to live in suffering during such a celebratory time. Its okay to cry, its okay to wonder why but understand that God's plan is so much larger and well thought that you will not get it at this very moment but eventually you will find peace.

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for what you're given, is how most people view Thanksgiving to be while my thoughts are that Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for what you don't have, and can still get and what you're able to give. It's God's way of saying "there's more to come,"which means dont worry about a thing cause' every lttle thing is going to be all right. The reason we celebrate with food is because when we become full off of food, God feeds us in a Supernatural way. We miss the fact that cousin Tom, whom we havent seen in three years is there. We miss the fact that Aunt Lisa is chronically ill but offered her home as the place to celebrate. Message: Be appreciate of the small thing's, there's always a tomorrow, dont live your life in sorrow.

New Year's are a creation of the world, meaning a new year could really start whenever you chose. Since it has already been chosen for us, New Year's is a time of resolutions for many folks. They ask themselves "What Can I do diffrently this year?" The answer usually revolves around starting fitness plans, new diets, changing friends, getting a new sceneary and more. While previous years, I have created New Year's resolutions which I started upon and barely ever finished. My biggest acknowledgement of when I've done something new or different is when I began that very day that I thought of the idea. Start immediatly because when I postpone it to began in a new year, nothing normally changes except for the date. If it was something, my heart really desired, Why couldnt I start tooday? Im not discouraging you to have New YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS, I am encouraging to began your journey now.

Thats all today, folks.

Mike Ferguson: December 3 2014

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen and Everything In Between:

Its been a very long time since I have written a post on BlogSpot, as I have transitioned to wordpress over the last few months but it is time for me to come home. As I attended, a Blogging For Business class, the teacher discussed her use of BlogSpot and when I went home, I began exploring BlogSpot again and I love it way more than wordpress but that's besides the point. The point is today, I will write what I have already verbally expressed in my youtube channel, Hot Sugar ShowRoom. If you haven't, subscribe now by going to youtube and searching Hot Sugar ShowRoom or Marshay Herder. Now, lets discuss the verdict that I am sure you have heard by now.


Darren Wilson, the shooter in the Mike Brown case did not get indicted. The question I asked on my vlog Hot Sugar ShowRoom was What did we expect? Did we expect our country that for years hasn't protected us, black people to on that day, change. I didn't!! I am only nineteen years old and there was nothing in my mind, that told me that the results of this case would come out any different. As far as history has shown, the average African American doesn't have half a chance of living a full out life that the average white man does and this is not all by choice. Some choose to make decisions that don't better their lives while others try, but are never given equal opportunity. This, we need to work on changing and I'll tell you tearing up the streets of our own neighborhoods will not ignite that change but doing everything necessary to get their attention, WILL!! I do not place blame on those whose angered hearts caused them to tear up the streets of Ferguson, we as African Americans are tired. Tired of the injustice, the sentencing placed on our lives that in comparison to a lighter skinned person would not compare. Now, I am not saying that when we commit crimes, we should get away with no repercussions but what I am saying is that America, the so called "land of the free" should not continue to bind us up behind bars for a case that is not deserving of our lives. We should not have our blood spread across the pavement of our own streets because of our appearance such as hoodies or size. When Darren Wilson said that Mike Brown was almost three hundred pounds and six feet four and he was afraid for his life, so he shot him. That was a lame excuse for his unnecessary behavior. Darren Wilson is 210 pounds and six feet four, also. So, why was he afraid again? If you take notice, this is the same lame excuse that George Zimmerman used on Trayvon Martin, a hoodie and his size scared him. Lets be honest, its not our skin that scares you, its not the size that scares you but its the fact that we one day could run the world with no bars tying you up. Our talent, our gifts, our abilities, our strengths and ability to survive is what fears you most. You've never met a generation of people that can be battered, scorned, and torn apart and still come out on top, we are natural survivors. We are different from you because If you were striped of your money, big businesses and jobs, you'd no longer want to live. You'd turn to the nearest drugs and addictions to cope with the circumstances that you are in, until you kill yourself from hopelessness. Instead of trying to kill our kids, you should try to learn something from them. I'm not pointing fingers at every white person nor am I excusing the behavior of our every black person but I am enlightening the world on something that has occurred for years with no reason as to why.

This is the face of the eighteen year old shot and killed by Darren Wilson:

I wont post Darren Wilson's photo but you could kindly google him to see.
Just like the GOP Staffer Elizabeth Lauten who had absolutely disrespectful remarks towards the first children, Sasha and Malia Obama. She was allowed to voice her opinion on the girls in an publically humiliating way with news channels bringing up her dirt and shining her in a bad light but they surely did that to Mike Brown. Only one picture of her drinking has been released but no one has forced her to honesty, own up to behavior. Its ridiculous because if the first family was WHITE, half of the things that have been said about Obama, put out about Obama would not be tolerated. This is all I have to say about this.
