Aunt Mary, you’re NOT fluffy!!!

Soooooooo you guys all knooooooow that I’m Mar Bear 🐻 annnnnnnnnnd I identify as FLUFFY!!! And fluffy isn’t bad to me… in fact fluffy is ACTUALLY my favorite word of all time… NO JOKE!!! 
 .
In fact, I got caught in Balderdash because when writing out my fake definition for a word, I did this epic description of some rare exotic flower, it was soooooo gooooooood, and no one would’ve guessed it, buuuuuuut EVERYONE DID!!! I was liiiiiike how did you guys all know that was me??? They were like cuz you just HAD to add fluffy into the description of the flower!!!!
.
Anyways, the other day I was saying well I’m just Fluffy Auntie Mar Bear, and Odin just stops in his tracks and says, Aunt Mary, you are NOT fluffy!!! I’m like yes I am!!! He’s like your NOT FLUFFY, you’re SKINNY!!!
.
I’m liiiiiiike I am NOT SKINNY!!! He’s like YES YOU ARE!!! I’m liiiiiike Odin, I’m not skinny, I’m fluffy and I don’t even want to be skinny either!!!! I mean yes, I want to lose some weight but not enough to be skinny!!! I’m fluffy, and I always want to be a little flufffy!!!
.
He’s like, buuuuuuut Aunt Mary, YOUR NOT FLUFFY!!! I’m liiiiiike O, I AM FLUFFY!!! Finally in exasperation he says, Aunt Mary your NOT fluffy!!! Do you have furr??? No you don’t, so your not fluffy!!  You have SKIN Aunt Mary, soooooo your SKINNY!!!
.
Ahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!
You’re riiiiiiight O, I’m SKINNY!!!
I tried then to explain to him what I meant by fluffy buuuuuuuut it wasn’t happening and my sister was like I don’t know WHY you’re even bothering to try and reason with him on this!!! I’m liiiiiike TRUE!!! I guess should just let ONE PERSON in the world believe im skinny…even if THE ONLY quality in being so is the fact that…
I HAVE SKIN!!!!

Happy Belated Juneteenth!!!

On my own, as early as four years old, I can remember taking and interest in African culture and the civil war times…I would imagine being one of the ones to help free slaves, I had a black baby doll, black barbies and I dreamed of one day having a black friend…
.
While I don't support all the political propaganda that comes along with this holiday, I do believe that it is representative of one of the greatest days in American history that should be remembered and honored!!!

.
THE END OF SLAVERY 
IN THE USA!!!
People ask me WHY I would celebrate today when I’m white, I’m liiiiiiiiike, UH, cuz I don’t believe in slavery… liiiiiike DUH πŸ™„ 
It was a REPUBLICAN president that ended slavery!!!
.
Growing up I loved reading the American Girl books! Annnnnnd you all know me, of course my favorite girl was ADDY!!! The story of Addy goes through her life as a child slave in the fields and then her life as her and her mom escape to freedom. 

I remember reading this series and there is a part where one of the slave drivers forces her to eat a worm for not picking fast enough in the field!I was sooooo horrified that they would do that to her... Buuuuuut the American girl series of slavery is really a very glamorized version of what actually happened!!!
.
Always having an extra interest in the civil war era of American history, It wasn't until I read this book below, "To Be A Slave" that I realized just how dehumanized people in slavery truly were!!!


I really recommend that everyone read this book!!!
Annnnnnnd thank God for breaking our chains of enslavement to sin!!!! We are no longer in bondage, because JESUS set us FREE!!!! Let freedom ring today!!!
