Made My Morning!!

This is an email that I obtained below…. BOY, did it make my HEART so glad…..


Hello Ms. Coleman,

Jared has been asking about playing drum set ALL year.  We have not yet had the opportunity to try it in class until today.  Not only did he demonstrate his skills, but he helped other students in the percussion section how to play what he’s learned.  Today, Jared was a ROCK STAR!  I was so proud of his patience and control during class today.  The other kids were also really impressed!

I’ve told him that anytime we need a drum-set player that I’ll be requesting him.

Have a great weekend,

Kelly Cornelius

Proud “Mommy” Moments


I am so blessed and honored to be the mother of such an incredible AND Interesting child!

My son last night just made me so proud when I drove up to the fire station in our community,  I almost teared up! LOL


They station was actually getting ready to go out on a call and I saw my son lifting the lever to allow the trucks to drive out made me think of the hit TV shows Chicago Fire and Third Watch!



Raising a child alone can become a bit interesting BUT raising an African American boy can be a tad bit more challenging as well. BUT GUESS WHAT! !!, With God all things are possible and my son and I are enjoying this beautiful experience together! !


I keep getting stronger and stronger every day and I’m grateful to have a son like this!!!
