My sister Joelle Lamarre kicked off the festivities with her rendition of “Summer Time” from the George Gershwin production of Porgy and Bess. She totally brought the house down.

Jennifer Ligaya of Intellectual Radio held down her duties as the hostess impeccably. The discussion about relationships covered everything from the first date to the first “kiss”. She also did a piece called “Curiosity Killed The Cat”…lets just say the room was STEAMING!!!…lol

As we played the EP I was surveying the room checking for responses and I loved what I saw. “I Like It” and “Take Our Time” seemed to get the best responses. My supporters let me know how much they loved the project.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY FROM PRECISE

Happy Mothers Day From Precise

IMG_3352

Nothing brings the season of spring in like Mothers Day. I’m not usually a fan of all these corporate driven holidays because of how they basically create this excitement around one day pretty much for the purpose of getting your money, but Mothers Day is different.

The past few years of my life have been a journey of change and inconsistency. Experiences and people come and go. Many times during this change it has been a challenge to develop a true foothold just to get centered and affect change the way that I would want to see it. People that I thought were in the supporting cast of my life were just passing through.

The only individual who has ALWAYS been there for me has been my mother and I feel extremely blessed because of it. When I think about my mother being sent to this country by her father from Haiti, meeting my father, learning a new language and earning a living to support a family it never ceases to amaze me. I love my mother dearly.

At a time in my life when I had no one to turn to she was my rock. I am so grateful and appreciative for her. I know without her this life would be different so every moment I am with her is cherished.

I have many friends and family members who have lost their mothers. I know they miss their moms. I am one who believes that our ancestors never leave us and continue to guide us through our lives. Our mothers are always with us.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL THE MOMS OF THE WORLD!!! We honor respect and LOVE YOU!!!!

Feel free to leave a comment and say Happy Mothers Day to Your Mom!!
