Politics

My Son’s PERSONAL Observation –


image

Okay – my son knows about politics and the things that occur in the world via CNN, the regular news stations and the things that I discuss with him – It is going on 9 pm and I am fussing at him in regards to getting himself together for school and he is ironing his clothes while chatting with me all at the same time……

Then from out of no where – he says mom remember every time there is a new POPE for the Catholic Church it is all over the news for days and it takes over the programs on television. I said yes, he said isn’t the POPE in another country and again, I answered yes.

Yall ready for this 11 year old’s child DISCOVERY!!  >>>> His next statement / question to me was this…..

Well mom, I don’t get that President Nelson Mandela died and he did so much for blacks and whites, was in jail and forgave the people for being mean to him then ran for president right? AGAIN … I said yes baby – He states, why didnt the media cover Nelson Mandela’s funeral on most of all the news channels like they do when they vote for a new POPE or when PEOPLE FROM ENGLAND GET MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!

Okay y’all, that was enough for me right there!! Whew – my son is indeed amazing! I taught him good and God surely is molding his little mind for such a time as this!

God Bless and Good Night!!

If we continue to live in our past than it will hinder our faith towards the greatness of our future.
Why let the past failures, hurts, and even successes steal from you the greatness of your future. Do not get stuck in the past but look towards the greatness of your future. You future holds so many undiscovered opportunities. Get excited about your future and thank God you made it through your past.

It’s not always necessary to say what you do but you always need to do what you say. A lot of talk with no action destroys your credibility….

Wishful Thinking –


I have ALWAYS desired to go to the UK… and until I get there – here’s to London Dreams! This is one of the countries that I have considered relocating too in the past – but as you know the story…..my son was helping me clean out of closets… a little Spring cleaning – and he ACCIDENTIALLY threw out our passports that was enclosed inside of the manilla envelopes! Well, I will relocate…. ” soon enough ” So I am “sorta – kinda” patiently waiting…. LOL

Relationships

Teacher – Nanny – Friend – Sister


It is amazing how many titles one person can become in a matter of two years!!! Oh how I love and adore her!! She is such an amzing person!!

She moved away last year and it was all of a sudden and I was of course sad and my son felt super bummed about it! However, lo and behold I found out that she temporarily moved back to the area for at least another 6 months or so – been here since this past Saturday and contacted me today! Yeah I choked her for just now getting in contact with me! But wait…. it has ONLY been 4 days! LOL Plus she is a newlywed so I have to remember my old school values and respect her schedule with her new hubby… BUT SHE MY FRIEND and I missed her! LOL

It is easy to get wrapped up in our own wounds, our own feelings of ambivalence and our fears of feeling alone in the world. After all, a love that remains unexpressed is a love that nobody knows about.  Women are KNOWN to be catty…..sneaky and of course unreliable but that is not everyone ya know!

It is not until someone finds the courage to share their feelings and open up and have a genuine sisterly relationship that they are then blessed with the knowledge that they, too, are worthy of the love they are giving.

My son OF COURSE…….. was soo elated to see her and hang out this evening! He has a crush and just cant stop grinning! LOL It is a major blessing having great friends and when your kids love them and they return love your kids ” AS IF THEY ARE THEIRS “…..it is amazing!

Okay before we departed…. I HAD TO GO and find a blessing for myself……. I did and look what I found! SOOO HOTT!!!

Wow – Really?


Okay my son LOVES watching and playing soccer and after seeing this, I said oh!!! I see why America is the ONLY  country that calls this sport FOOTBALL and not SOCCER !

 

I think that I would jump out of my seat in a stadium if I saw something like this happen to my son! GEESH….. These guys certainly are not displaying role model behavior!
