There are more years than not that I did nothing special to celebrate or even acknowledge my own birthday. I was reminded a few days before my birthday that, “you should always celebrate your life”. I agree that we should celebrate life because it is a gift. With my gift of life I am blessed to be able to bless others that include family, friends, associates and even those that I do not know. I am not financially well off; in fact, I am money-less after paying my monthly living expenses (Bills!) and I do not have much materialistic to share either. However, as people joke that I smile ALL THE TIME (lol), I realize that something so simple like my smile is a blessing to others. One day my smile won’t physically exist anymore, so don’t take my smile for granted. Don’t take any persons smile for granted! Let your smile be a blessing to others and don’t stop there, because if you are financially fortunate, always remember that it is better to give than to receive!
Thank you for your blessing to me and thanks for the support that you give me as a music artist. Hey, guess what?!? I can officially be called a Platinum Recording Saxophonist because of my contribution to Ludacris album, Release Therapy, which went platinum. Coincidently, the Platinum Record Sales award was delivered to me on the morning of my birthday, October 2nd. The award reads, “Presented to PHILLIP SOLOMON STEWART to commemorate RIAA certified PLATINUM sales of more than 1,000,000 copies of the DISTURBING THA PEACE/DEF JAM release “RELEASE THERAPY””. Wow, right?!?!? Now, “SHOW ME THE MONEY!” – I’m just saying….
Let’s celebrate life! Today, October 14th is my brother’s birthday, so happy birthday to you Xavier and also to you who shares this day. I thank God for another year of life and I thank God for you (supporters)! May God bless us spiritually and physically with good health and prosperity, in Jesus name, Amen!
