LovePrints. We are all family. It is time that we act accordingly.

I have been on my own knowledge search, and it has led me to several things that I walk with each day. An understanding of name, a respect for education, a desire for more love, and a clear understanding that we are all cousins trying to make sure that we get our family hugs and a piece of the good grandma cake.I have found my father, gained more brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and history. I was gifted with an eye opening amount of information on our country, the world, and all of our places in it. I was blessed with more love, made responsible for those who hate, and handed the task of sharing this information with anyone who can benefit from it.
 
I have confirmed DNA with slaves, slave owners, freedmen and freed women. My bloodlines run directly with kings, pharaohs, queens, princes and princesses. My heritage is full of Confederate and Union Generals, Governors, Senators,and Congressional men and women. My family helped Army beat Navy, Navy beat Army, and the Air Force Academy beating and losing to them both. My cousins played in the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLS, and MLB. There are Heisman, Oscar, Emmy, and Tony winners. There are Hall of Famers and honored soldiers.
 
My family tree is full of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. Founding Fathers, Rebels, and Spies. Rich and poor. Those with several degrees, and those who could not read or write. Rapists, murderers and thieves. Men of God and those who would best be described as evil.
I have legends, icons, leaders, and champions. I have forward thinkers, hope warriors, and angels on earth.
 
All in all, I am glad that I know now what I did not know before. I am as much a part of where I come from as anyone. I have the right to claim my place, and guarantee that place for my daughter, my family, and my grandson. They will know that they not only belong, but they KNOW that they belong.
 
Here’s to the shared DNA in us all. Here’s to understanding that its easier to love a stranger if you are aware that they are family. It is also much harder to hate them. I hope that we can move forward knowing that we are family. We are supposed to love one another. Some will say that family feud is a natural thing. I say that family love is more natural.
 
Take a look at this video. I was going to do one just like it, but this one is done perfectly. I will have to do my video on something else. Maybe, just maybe, it will have to do with love. Thank you to all of the family who helped in identifying, verifying, and loving through this journey. It is not over. It is only really beginning. We need each other. We should really love each other. 
 
Love you, cousin!

LovePrints. Here’s to the healers. Thank you.

Here’s to the healers!

Thank you!

For understanding the simple idea that one hand is for giving and one is for receiving. To be of service, we must give of ourselves. If we care about others, we find out about the greater good in ourselves.

The caretakers of hearts. The lovers of health. The shepherds for good. The guards to happiness.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

For sacrificing time with your own to help others. For allowing your heart to be stretched and pulled in several directions at once. For draining your emotional and energy bank, often at your own expense. For showing up at times and in places where the forgotten exist.

Thank you. For open arms. Open hands. Open wallets. Open ears. For giving time, action, money, and care. Thank you for listening. Thank you for paying attention. Thank you for moving whatever is needed for whoever needs it. Thank you.

Thank you for answering the call, leading the response, and for loving others enough to help others out. Thank you for opening doors, lending hands, and for showing up. Thank you.

Thank you for being selfless, for knowing how to care, and for reminding us that we need to be here for each other. Thank you for helping others stand when they are too weak to do so on their own. Thank you for being supportive at times and places where extra support is needed. Thank you.

Thank you for being present, and for not ignoring someone else’s pain. Thank you for aiding, for curing, and for nurturing. Thank you for your touch, your words, and your actions.

Thank you for recognizing the painful way, for showing and teaching a better way, and for living the best way. Thank you for your love. That is what healing is.

LOVE.

LovePrints. Thank you, coach!

Coaches.
(I am not excluding parents, mentors, leaders, teachers, or simply good humans.)
Coaches,
I talk about the good that coaches do so that they are reminded that what they do, matters. The important reason why you coach, matters. (Love) The important skills you share, matter.. The love that you give, matters. I talk about letters received, I talk about the texts answered.  tI talk about the emails delivered,. I talk about all of the phone calls made. I share the great stories so that coaches don’t forget that they are important to the players, families, and communities in which they coach. I share the successes because the falls and bruises can be loud and painful, so the successes have to be louder and more healing. I praise the choices made to add love to the lives of the people we lead. I celebrate the wins, give value to the lessons, and cheer your ability to show up, show out, and elevate.
If no one has said it today, let it be said now.
Well done, coach.
Well done.
Here’s to all of the success stories. Here’s to all of your lessons taught. Here’s to every time you clock in. Here’s to making the lives of those in your charge greater. Here’s to you. Here’s to them. Here’s to us.
Bravo.

LovePrints Smiles Project

LovePrints is the simple idea of adding love whenever and wherever we can. To love out loud. In adding love, we cover those we care in love so that nothing else can stick Each action of love, all love in action.

As a coach, I asked my teams to reach down into their hearts and generate smiles in the places they live. The teams would purposefully go into the schools, neighborhoods, classrooms, hallways, and their own homes with the simple idea of creating smiles wherever they were. Whether it was holding a door open for someone, taking care of an errand for someone else, a kind word for a teammate or even a stranger, these players would generate smiles each day. Some would take over a chore at home that someone else would normally do, or they would learn to do something that someone normally would do for them. They would assist the teachers, help out the custodial staff, or they would go and cheer for a team that they normally wouldn’t support. Each player would write a letter to someone they cared about, and they would share this with their teammates.

For my birthday this year, I do not want gifts. What I am asking is that you simply add love. SHARE YOUR SMILE!

For one day, simply take a picture of you with your Sunday’s best smile, and share it. Post it. Text it. Make it your profile picture, or simply make a post on social media with your smile and the words #smilesproject or #addlove or #loveprints . It wont cost a thing, and wont take up much time. I am smiling at the idea of all the smiles. That is what smiles do. That is what smiles are for. To be shared.

Remember that action without love does not accomplish anything good, and love without action does not accomplish enough, but together, they can accomplish anything.

Feel free to share this. Every birthday party needs more smiles. I hope that the day is filled with love and in that, smiles. Here’s to your smile, and mine.
