Sharing Advice

GOD has given us the power of choice. We must choose one way or the other, and whatever pathway we choose will lead to a specific destination. If we choose disobedience we end up with curses and every kind of misery; but if we choose life, we are BLESSED.

I often wonder why anyone would choose to be miserable when THEY could be BLESSED; yet multitudes do just that.  (DEUTERONOMY 11:26-28)

Even being a Mentor, we must ALWAYS remember that we too needed guidance! Having an open mind….and an open heart… is a need for growth. Whether a mentor or a mentee – BOTH parties should be obtaining something positive / productive from the relationship.

Saying Goodbye to Good Teachers


I am happy to have such a great rapport with all of my son’s teachers…. I mean from the time he entered into Pre -K, I was apart of EVERY little event that they had for him. However, with him being basically almost in middle school ( yikes ) It is weird because “IN THE BEGINNING” my son could not stand to look at her which I found it rather odd….. She was very strick and stern as a TEACHER as I am as a PARENT so he should not have been shocked by the way that she ran her classroom!

Nonetheless, now he surely adores her! I did not have the heart to tell him that her last day will be sooner than later and he does not even know! It is great when your kids run into teachers that show that they care…..then of course when the teachers or the kids move on – it is a little sad. Shout out to all of the teachers across America who puts genuine time and effort into their students!

Happy Birthday Mommy!


It does NOT matter how and when you celebrate LIFE of the person whom you love…just make sure that you do indeed celebrate it with them!

With a great deal of  people are dying and regardless of the age, I have gone to funerals for people who were deemed to be young and healthy!

So with my MOMMY CAKES turning 73 years “younger” today – I am elated to share every moment with her!

She has taught at least 75% of what  I know and it has 75% made me into the woman I am – so she is batting really good at almost 100 and im am already almost half of her age! LOL …Nonetheless, she introduced me TO CHRIST – which was the best relationship that I will ever have!
