I'm most proud of the blessings that God has bestowed upon me, in my life. He's given me the vision to truly see that you can fall down, but you can still get back up. Hopefully, I'll learn from my mistakes and have the opportunity to strengthen and improve the next thing I do.: You can be cool and at the same time respect your woman, who will hopefully become your wife, who will hopefully become the mother of your kids. America needs to get back to family values.: If you want someone who's big-boned and you like that, ain't nothing wrong with having a little extra meat on there. If you like them thin-boned, then that's okay, too.: Everybody has a Big Momma: the mother or the grandmother who tells it as it keeps it real with them, isn't afraid to tell you the truth about yourself.: I just try to get along with people and show the love that I would like to be shown to me.
