Brandy and I, here at Latin Fusion Tv, wish you a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!
If you are not from the states, you may not celebrate Thanksgiving, as it is a National Holiday for us in the US, as we celebrate the beginning of a new nation and our national pride. It was a time of new beginnings for our country, even before it was a country! Which brings me to my point!
Right now, Brandy is undergoing a tough time! Her daughter is in intensive care, or ICU, and on Life Support! Two days ago she was on the brink of death – today she is breathing at 60%.
What a difference a day makes. It reminds me to be grateful in all things, both big and small. And in order to do that – I must realize that thanksgiving is more an attitude than just a day. And while many are waiting for the day after, Black Friday, they are forgetting the reason why we celebrate Thanksgiving in the first place.
That being said, I will spend time with my family, knowing I cannot afford the deals that Black Friday will bring, but I am thankful that we are not suffering through another loss in our life! I am grateful that my brother is here in town, my family will get together, as will Brandy’s (even if it is in the hospital). We will gather and pray for those things that matter! Because we have learned that Thanksgiving is an attitude – not just a day! And there is much to be thankful for!
Thanks for reading, thanks for watching and most of all Thanks for the Prayers! May God Bless, heal and protect our beloved Diamond Monique!
Have a blessed day and a Happy Thanksgiving!
We love you all!
Hello to all of our Readers! We hope you had a safe Halloween and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! The Holidays are upon us so enjoy your time with your family and be thankful for what you have.
Last month we wrote about Running the Race, not giving up and understanding that things happen for a reason. How people and circumstances, like the seasons of the year, come and go and it is all in God’s time! Therefore, we must have faith and be committed to do what is right.
It means we must commit to Finish Well!
When we discuss finishing well, we are not talking about winning the race, but about finishing strong – doing the best you can and making sure that you commit to finish – and do what is right, good and helpful.
Finishing well is important because life is a journey! It can be a long and tough road. People remember us more for what we do rather than for who we are. This can be hard but you can finish well. The chapter of your life is still being written. Write it well!
It’s the same for us, it is the same with business, things might be tough – but do not give up. And if things are going well, then be generous, help out, give back.
It is the Holidays and there will be a lot of activities going on. It should be a reminder of how grateful we should be, and how much we can help those less fortunate than us. How we can make a difference.
It is easy to look at how little we may have or what we are missing in our life, but let’s not. Let’s finish the year well by helping others. The best way is to volunteer and donate. You can help us!
On Friday, December 9th, I will host my 6th Annual Star Gala, or “Una Noche con Las Estrellas,” at the Fountain Bleu Banquet Hall. The event will be from 7 to midnight. But this is not an ordinary gala, we have partnered with our dear friend, Rocky “Shuffle” Hernandez, of the award winning OBG Band and we will have a dance and special guests. We will collect toys to be delivered over the holidays and we will bring in local celebrities and stars to party with us.
We will collect toys for Rocky’s Kids and Brandy’s Toy Box. Toys will be delivered to Bexar County Sheriff, Christus Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital, Santa’s Cruisers and other organizations. Many will be volunteering their time and resources and we will be doing a good thing for Families in Need. I invite you to join us.
We are working with Janie’s Records Shop, Del Bravo Records, and other locations to collect gifts for the children. On Facebook, go to the Latin Fusion Tv group page and Una Noche con Las Estrellas Event page for the latest information and updates on the Gala and where to donate.
Check out the ad here in Street Talk magazine. Hey, maybe we can talk Jaime to join us and you can meet our wonderful editor and publisher.
This month is Veteran’s Day – We salute all of our veterans and support our troops!
On Friday, November 11, the JW Marriott is hosting a big Veterans Day bash. Also, they are honoring teachers, firefighters, police officers and government employees with a discounted room rate – check out our website for details.
On Saturday, November 12 is the United States Military Veterans Parade, it is one of the largest veteran’s day parades in the United States. Remember, Freedom isn’t Free and this is just one way we can honor our veterans – We hope to see you there.
Finally, for information regarding the SouthTown Lions, the events we support and the work we do check out our website: www.SouthtownLions.org. As for latin Fusion Tv, we have lots of upcoming events, so please visit our website: www.LatinFusionTv.com.
The end of the year is near, so let’s remember to walk by faith and not by sight, love each other and commit to Finish Well! Hope to see you at our Gala! God Bless – Brandy
