The 3 Amigos

Hanging out with my TWO FAVORITE GIRLS always keep me in a good  mind space….. just spending time – talking  – lauging – eating is a source of STRENGTH for each of us and I could not be more happier….. I even act super silly sometimes which STILL throws  my sister off because she is so used to be only being 100000% super serious like all of the time! LOL

Family does not always mean the individuals that share the same blood line as you – However, I am glad that my mommy cakes and my sister happen to be blood line family members that I call friends. I have a great deal of girl pals that do not have relationships with either their mothers or fathers and sometimes even both parents!

I cannot IMAGINE how that would feel at all because the estranged relationships that I have with a few of my siblings do not feel too good, so not having a good rapport with a parent would mostl likely KNOCK THE WIND out of me……

We are indeed The 3 Amigos….. they are MY friends…. MY compadres….MY accountability partners….my partners in crime ( good crime ) LOL and of course that it takes a PIONEER to ” keep it all together ” and that is Mommy Cakes – boy she is a STRONG WHIPPER SNAPPER and is amazing! Her INNER STRENGTH is just breath taking and to be honest, She isnt bad on the eyes either I tell ya!!!


Poor Jared-

Well I did try!!! I FORGOT to pick up his best friend to go to the movies and to eat with us because I GOT ANOTHER BUSINESS CALL…. I feel like that I lost the mother of the year award from my own son!!! UGGGHHHHH

I figured if I kept cracking jokes that it would get him to cheer up – he is sooooo sooo not happy right now! He rather stare VERY HARD at the television in our eatery than talk to his poor mom!

I offered this boy a MAKE UP play date with his best friend and he never even FLINCHED an eye brow….let alone an eyeballl!!! I even asked him to take photos with me to try and get him to at least CRACK a smile….. NOPE #tryagainmom

I just asked him why cant I get a break and he said… MOM YOU ARE ALWAYS BUSY! I too advised him that I AM ALWAYS available for him and we are together at least 85% of the time – My son even loves politics now – ( really since he was about 6 ) because I take him to ALL OF THE CAMPAIGNS that I work on. So he could see what I do…… what I LOVE and to get him involved in understanding WHY POLITICS IS, HOW IT WORKS AND WHY IT IS IMPORTANT. He is 10 years old and by the age of 7, he already picked his political party!! The ex president that I am obsessed with – he reminds me daily that he lives in another state and he is also no longer the president! LOL ( WHO CARES! )

I did NOT want to disregard what he said just in case he REALLY felt that I was too busy and not spending enoug QUALITY time with him and he said he just said that because he was mad and all the cell phones kept ringing – he had a VERY VALID POINT via the cell phones….so I cut them all off.

My son then said – Mom that show that you like called Scandal because its about Politics – I said yeah ( all smiling ) He said, you are that lady Olivia Poe she is always busy and her friends are the people she works with! I said OUCH!!! I said well my friends are in the church and political arena and what is wrong with that? He said nothing but that lady is too busy to get married!!!! I SAID OUCH AGAIN!!! LOL I told him that “getting married” SURELY IS THE EASY PART – but being with the RIGHT MATE is something that surely takes time. I KINDLY reminded him and said to him in a serious but sweet voice……………..

That my future husband has to be A PERFECT FIT FOR ME AND YOU BUDDY! and there is alot into being Godly connected! He laughed and said..Oh yeah, you are right mommy because I wouldnt want you to get killed or anything! I said huh??? He said I remember watching that Drew Peterson story and we can just wait until God sends us the right person, so I dont mind us both being busy all the time!!


I had a HAPPY LITTLE YOUNG MAN sitting beside me and we are BOTH now two happy campers!! He’s my Inspiration….

I have a little treat for my baby when we are done hanging out…. Im gonna go hang out with my mom and sister and he can have fun with another friend of his that lives closer to the house – he will be happy…. What parents do for their kids happiness! LOL


Finally A Calm Day

Welp as usual… the story of my life is running to and fro from meetings via work and church – trying to keep it all balanced so by the time I pick up my son he is NOT affected by any of the drama from either situation that I may have been dealing with – It gets rough sometimes because I do alot and he understands only to a certain degree of course…

Nonetheless, I am going to cross my fingers and HOPE for the best – I have to keep the work cell phone and he wants to go OUT to dinner (as usual being a spoiled little man ) then he wants to grab a movie AFTER homework. So let’s see how this evening goes…

However, before I meet up with the baby – my day FOR A CHANGE was actually great! A few pastor friends of mine and I had a GREAT conversation on married life as well as single life via ministry and boy was it a BITTER / SWEET conversation!!

The mind sets of the people in ministry HAVE INDEED changed – let me tell you! Welp – toodles…. and remember to bless someone ELSE today!

Women's Stuff

Thoughts –

Women are known be much more enduring, tolerant and patient than men. In the present generation, they are not merely confined to households, rather, they aptly participate in every sphere of life. However, life does not follow the smooth path always.

There are times when a woman’s life seem to be submerged in delusions, where hopes become volatile and the thought process is reduced to mundane. When darkness of negativity surmount them, then they should be encouraged with positive thoughts, that have the ability to retain the lost spirit and instill self-confidence once again. And this is exactly what positive affirmations for women are meant for.

If you feel the aura of optimism around you, then nothing can subdue you. Love YOU today!
