Yesterday was Mother’s Day and I have had the honor of being a mother for over twenty-seven years.

Good Day to Indulge
Today is Friday, the sun’s out, my plants are happy, some of my busyness have subsided and it’s looking to be a great day! I haven’t done a lot of writing this month and I’m still trying to catch up on some of your blogs and get back into my normal groove. When I’m overextendedContinue reading “Good Day to Indulge”
We Are Human!
I am a black woman, I’m married to a black man, I have three black sons and there are millions of other black people living in this country and we’re all human. As humans we have eyes and ears just like our counterparts, most times we’re blessed with a darker shade, wider noses and thickerContinue reading “We Are Human!”
Man vs Woman, Who’s Smarter?
Our brains are divided into two hemispheres, a left-side and a right. Studies suggest, left-side thinkers are more analytical, sequential, logical, and methodical while right-side thinkers are believed to be more creative, free-spirited, intuitive, and holistic.

November is a month of gratefulness and thanksgiving, and as we did in prior years, we counted our blessings with friends, family, food and fellowship.

The Forgotten Memories
Over the last week my family and I have been spending some time watching video recordings of us, made over twenty years ago. It’s truly amazing and priceless that we have this chance to view these little snap shots documenting our experiences that had been forgotten over the years. No doubt, things we probably wouldContinue reading “The Forgotten Memories”
Try a Different View
I saw this post today and I thought about how truthful and pertinent it is, especially at this time. As we look forward to Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season some of us are tempted to start checking the boxes for all the things we’re not or don’t have.

Abuse or Harmless Prank?
Now it’s October and a lot of us love Halloween. As a child I loved a good scare. I lived for the rush of my heart pounding in my chest and adrenaline coursing through my veins as I anxiously awaited the latest scary thing to pop off.
