Welp, as usual……my momma needs / wants to run around and 5 stops will be the minimum! !!

She loves just being on the go and never really has a prime destination!.  Just getting out of the house to just rip and run…LOL

I don’t mind running around with MY MOMMY because with her being a very young 73 years of agr, I better never complain right!!!

You would think the mall would be her firat or favorite place to atop…NO!!! It’s the regular grocery store folks!!! LOL

Its sooooooooo weird because I’m telling the truth too!! Hower, I’m grateful that God allows her to continually wake up everyday….  it’s a blessing because we all know that a great deal of folk didn’t wake up today. .  But My Mommy did!

There is a large amount of people who are #DEAD# that would LOVE to switch places with the LIFE that you are complaining about daily!

Parenting

Nurturing Sons

“My son, keep your father’s commands and do not forsake your mother’s  teaching.” ~ Proverbs 6:20

A mother and son relationship is a very unique one. Boys generally look up to  their fathers or a father-figure for how to interact with others, show affection  towards others, and respond to different situations. Hopefully, that father or  father-figure is a good example to his son of God‘s love. But the mother, on the  other hand, has a chance to show her son how a girl wants to be treated and how  he should expect to be treated by the opposite sex. This will help him see what  he can do to have better relationships in the future.

Communication is key. Listen to your child and give him your  full attention when he is talking to you. Let him know that he is important and  what he is thinking and feeling is of concern to you. Look him in the eye and be  ready to answer any questions he may have for you. Even if the question seems  silly to you, remember that he is younger and learning things for the first  time. Don’t make him feel trivial.
image

Be a supporter. If you want your son to keep coming back to  you for advice and to tell you things in confidence, you need to show him that  you can be trusted. It is so easy to tell your friends about something “cute”  your son told you last night, but if your son…..MY SON knew you were telling others, he would  probably lose the desire to come to you as a confidant.

Be tender. Your advantage as a mother is that your son knows  you have a more tender heart than a father or father-figure. In time, and with  your trust, he knows he will be able to share things with you and get your  expert advice from a woman’s perspective. Men sometimes brush things off a bit  more easily and don’t see a boy’s feelings, and these are the times that your  son will want your perspective.
image

Be an example. Part of developing a healthy relationship  with a son is making sure that you are a good example to him. Actions really do  speak louder than words. You cannot expect your son to know how to treat others  with respect, if you are always fussing with your family members, friends, husband or mate, or say you  will do something and never follow through. Think about the things you are doing  and take an inventory on some areas of your life that you need to clean up. Do  you watch objectionable TV shows that you don’t want your son to see? Maybe you  should choose something different to watch.

Are you telling your son to eat his  vegetables, while you are cramming down a hot fudge sundae? It has never said  having a healthy relationship with your son was easy. It does take work and  maybe a change in yourself, as well.
image

Be Flexible and Fun. REMEMBER – that you have a son and not a daughter for starters!! THEY want you to be cool, silly, supportive AND FUN! Regardless if it is making silly faces, playing video games with them, crack jokes, make loud noises, reading comic books togtether and playing ball etc. It may take you out of your comfort zone if you prefer to get ” all dolled up ” all the time…but you have to learn to be flexible for you son’s sake!
image

TRUST ME …… Your son adores you as his mother and wants the best for you…HOWEVER – he is also watching EVERYTHING that you do as well!

Creating Moments

Taking the time….Putting in the time for relationships not only takes time but desire as well.

Yes…it may take some work to maintain them for love for the people should make it well worth it. Forgiveness and Communicating are the top two acts that MUST be displayed on a daily basis for it to genuinely last.

Although all of these things are true…. it is MORE important that you maintain your own good morals..stances..character and values because without standards, you would not be able to establish a healthy relationship as well.

Family

Today’s Family Meditation


When things arent working out as you wish.. be patient and stop trying to move ahead of God. His timing is truly perfect and you will NEVER know how perfect it is until you trust Him….. There seems to be a negative situation that transpires on a weekly basis in most people’s live…. However, I work with drug and alcohol clients and things tend to go negative in their lives on a DAILY BASIS… So we must be appreciative for the little things that happen in our lives because things can always be worse – just dont ask how!

Family is there for you most of the time… friends are there for you some of the time but yet AGAIN…. God is there for you all of the time! Learn to respect and honor those who God has strategically and tactfully placed in your path…. absorb and nurture the KNOWLEDGE while you can!

Hmmm…just when we are in need of some serious help, God is always there to lift us up….. He may not show up in the way that YOU may desire but His way is and will always be better for you / us!

The truth is just beautiful isnt it! Remember that God is a LIFE LINE and there is no failure in Him … believe it!

Relationships

Saturday Morning Moment


“A friend is one who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself”. This quote aptly describes the role that a friend plays in your life. Friends are the ones who are always there for you, whether the times are good or bad. They never leave your side, even in the worst of circumstance. When you are sitting with a friend, you don’t feel the need to say words. He/she understands even you silence. Still, many people fail to recognize the importance of friends in their life. In the following lines, we have explained why friends are important and what role do they play in our life.

Friends are always there for us, to laugh with us in the happy times and to provide us with a shoulder, when we feel like crying. They serve as one of the biggest supports in our life.

Friends are amongst those few people who accept us, rather like us, as we are. They never come into our life, expecting us to change for them. However, they do correct us when we are at fault.

It is said that whether you need to hear the bitter truth about yourself, go to your best friend. He/she will never lie to you, just to please you and win your favors. What he/she says is the truth about you.

You can always count on your friends, whether you need any advice or any help. They will shy away from none. The best part is that a friend’s advice will always be for your betterment, whether it hurts you or pleases you.

After family, friends are the one who care for you. They bring a smile on your face when you are sad and they go out of the way to make things alright for you. Friends are the ones with whom we can share our darkest secrets, without being worried of them being leaked. They acknowledge our worst ideas and try to fulfill our silliest of wishes.

Friends feel happy at your success and sad at your failure. They share all your feelings and make you feel that there is somebody who still cares for you. When you have friends, you never ever feel lonely. Friends love you and care for you. They always make you feel special and never expect anything in return, other than your love and friendship. They stay true to you throughout their lives……
