Hmmmm….This Surely Encouraged Me –


There is a great deal that I DO NOT agree with in regards to our current President – Nevertheless, I will run across small snippets of things that he does “behind the scenes” and it is at “these moments”… my vantage point widens…..  Hearing him talk about REAL LIFE things – encouraged me –

 JUST SIMPLY VERY SAD……………

Memorial Day weekend has brought violence to Chicago, with six killed and at least 22 wounded so far, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

On Friday evening a 17-year-old girl was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, and an 18-year-old man was shot in the chest in the same incident. Later that night another man was shot and killed.

On Saturday, Gregory Dixon, 29, was shot to death about half a mile from President Barack Obama’s Kenwood neighborhood home. Dixon buzzed the gunmen into the apartment building himself, according to police. The attackers then entered through a door left ajar and shot Dixon in the chest and back.

Also on Saturday, and 18-year-old man was shot in the head in a possible drive-by.

On Sunday, police responded to a disturbance call and found Malcolm Dobbey, 27, shot to death in a backyard. Detectives were questioning a “person of interest” in the fatal shooting, but no charges had been brought as of Sunday evening.

Charles Jones, 42, the manager of a gentleman’s club, was shot and killed during an incident in which a Buick LaCrosse sideswiped Jones’ Maserati. When Jones pulled over to confront the other motorist, the driver and a passenger walked to another vehicle and then came back. One of them had a gun and shot Jones dead, police said. A 42-year-old woman in his car was wounded by a shot to the hip or back.

TOO Cute!!


No one can escape the Kissing Camera I see! LOL

Cool seeing the president of the United States and First Lady acting like a NORMAL couple at a basketball game –

My Roots………….


Whew.. You ever have one of those days that you MUST just “wallow in your roots” Well…my roots run deep!

Old Pentecostal preaching is what I was raised on yes BUT –
THE S-I-N-G-I-N-G whew……took me somewhere in God!

Welp…..this is how I am feeling today – loving my ROOTS

What is a root? Something or something (s) that have been the cause of your continued growth – it is amazing huh!

Hymns ……OLD Hymnals make me REMEMBER How good….
How amazing….How awesome…..How impeccable God is!

Circle of Care


Everyone should have a circle of friends…a circle of loved ones… a circle of family members….  a circle of prayer partners etc..etc..etc.

Understand that this circle SHOULD NOT look how YOU think that it should look like or even be like if you are asking GOD TO DO IT….. We never know who we will need in life and also why LIMIT what God wants for you? There are soo soo many other people who have walked where you are PRESENTLY trying to go! Therefore, why not be open to what God has for you….wants for you….desires for you and most importantly >>>>CREATED FOR YOU!

Fellowship and Friendship goes together!! So remeber that HELP- LOVE and FRIENDSHIP  comes in all different colors, sizes and ages!

10 to 6


Ummmm 10 to 6 is NOT  a shift that I am talking about…. that is the losing score that my son and his team experienced today! Honey, I was so mad that they lost because I was in 91 degree weather and it is ONLY worth the heat if you win!! Listen, I do not understand how either of them are able to co – habitat in the hot summer weather with barely getting a drink / a liter of water to drink….  I am so not that type of person to be the point that I spent a whole 45 minutes in my car with the car blowing on me!

I am so serious…. being at this game with the heat and NOT being able to keeo my weekend of 4 days of being alone, relxing and enjoying womanhood and NOT motherhood was very irritating! I mean the mere fact that his team lost by 4 points was just as bad but the 4 runs that they obtained was a curteousy of my son pitching and allowing players to get on base because he was ONLY throwing “balls” and only a handful of strikes!  He did good overall but my focus was on my alone time that was yet AGAIN shot to ruins!

Of course, as parents that we will do anything for our kids but I MUST SAY that this weekend was all about ME and it was taken away from me and  I am focusing on what is the most important ………………………… at least for tomorrow! >> ME  I have managed and proven my “amazing parent” award by my deeds and do not need a television t oshow me what else needs to be dealt with!
