So, when your mom gets ill, you realize how wack taking her (or anyone) for granted is…

So, I am a good daughter. Really, I am. But I am impatient with my mom. We have that 30 year difference, and she is just not like me at all. I am high energy and I don't sleep a lot and I care about being healthy and I am the opposite of sedentary. She…

So being on a higher spiritual/emotional/intellectual plane has its cons…

So, I am not saying I am Oprah or Iyanla or Dalai Lama. I am just a thinker. A deep thinker. Even when I was at my most "ratchet" in my younger years, I always felt intensely. I am super emotional and I care more than most. I have a penchant for trying to help…

Life is full of ups and downs, but boy do I feel blessed!!

So, I met some jerks. I lost an at home job. I started commuting 2.5 hours a day to a unfulfilling work situation. BUT... I learned a lot I have a job AND... I found the love of my life! No more creepy Match guys who are only looking for sex. No more roller coaster…

So, what is grace really? And not the grace you may be thinking of…

So, I am not talking about grace in the way that Madonna talks about it: "She's got style, she's got grace, Rita Hayworth gave good face..." (Vogue) I am talking about the Grace of God. Have you ever seen books about Grace in a Christian reference of the word? I mean, I think that I…

So, August holds new challenges for me…

I started on August 1st in a "secret" group on Facebook, 30 days 30 walks/runs starting August 1st. I also started a meet your goals challenge on Instagram that started the beginning of August. One of things that I wanted to do was take time to write more. I have not been doing as much…

It is so funny reading people’s Instagram and Facebook and even Twitter-bouncing from heaven to hell…

I will admit that I am a Christian woman with a sometimes awful potty mouth. I do not claim to be perfect. But I also don't have a meme or post praising Jesus one moment, and the next minute having one talking about going to a strip club. Some of the women that I know…

What is about nighttime and worrying and binge-eating grapes? For me at least…

HI guys I am still a bit bummed and stunned that so many people do not care about the tragedy in Nigeria. Because some journalists were killed in Paris, the media was up in arms and they still are. I totally get it. It was tragic, but other parts of the world are going through…
