Michael Jordan Wear for Women

Hey Hey! I just had to share a great find. With Mother’s Day coming, I wanted to get my Mom some really cool gym shoes. She asked for a blood pressure monitor (BORING!) and I purchased that the other day, but I wanted to get her something that was fun. My Mom is an avid walker – she blazed my husband and I in a 10K walk last summer – so gymshoes are indeed in order.

I remember seeing an episode of Oprah with Michael Jordan well over a year ago – he had ladies modeling his new line for women. Have any of you seen it in the stores? I haven’t and would love to -I liked what I saw that day, so I went to Oprah’s page and saved the following pics from that episode:

Cute, huh? 🙂

I did a search at Lady Footlocker and found Jordan items, but nothing that immediatley grabbed me. But how I love this top in my husband’s favorite ice cold colors.

Then I hit Finish Line’s website and I ordered these for my Mom as soon as I saw them and the price:

Jordan Women’s SL-23 @ Finishline.com – On sale for $29.99!

They arrived yesterday and are SO cute, I am secretly hoping Mom won’t like them so I can keep them! But who wouldn’t love a pair of Jordan’s?

Lifting Our Spirits

From the Book Walk Tall – Affirmations for People of Color by Carleen Brice

No matter how bad things got, our ancestors found something to laugh at.  Humor was one of their positive coping skills.

A sense of humor can get us through some pretty tough spots, but sometimes it’s hard to find things to laugh at.  The bills aren’t paid.  The house is a mess.  We are alone, sick, or tired.  We feel like everybody is on our case.

In those times when it’s difficult to smile, we can ask for our Higher Power’s help.  We can let God fill us with enthusiasm so that we can keep going.  Think of people who “get happy” in church.  The word “enthusiasm” comes from the Greek word entheos, which means “to inspire” and entheos was derived from theos, the Greek word for “God.”

We also can look for the twinkle in our mate’s eyes or the light in a child’s voice.  Feeling connected to others helps lift our spirits and reminds us that we’re not alone.
