Embracing the Light

I hope that you are doing well I’m taking a minute to pause today. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone.  This past weekend, I attended the memorial service of a friend who passed away. While there, I was encouraged to remember her whenever I turn on a light because she could light up a room with her electric personality.

I turned on a light to write this post and it’s only fitting to pause in her honor.

Her name was Deirdre Louise Jackson Jones.

In addition to being a friend, she was a member of the Charisse Says community – speaking up to support this work, inquiring about ways to build wealth, sharing my financial content on social media, discussing money issues out loud, offering to be helpful to me when I started Charisse Says, and supporting the cause of financial empowerment.
