Parenting

Memories –


I was thinking of when I was being honored at a Banquet and when I realized that my son was getting an award as well –  You know I was mushy and teary eyed!! About 5 years ago – I started doing street ministry but to the Homeless population  called The Coleman Cares Winter Project and I went out from October until April giving out clothes, coats, socks, hot beverages and food.

This was done by MY OWN money as well as my son’s little piggy bank ( by his choice – which touched my heart as well ) Nonetheless, my son was also honored since he was in the trenches with me! This photo was taken when my NOW 11 year old son was about 6 years old.

The Lord’s work has its own kind of reward that does not always come / show up in the FORM of currency……God is good.

A Nice “Random”


Whether we realize it or not, appreciating the life we live is a necessity in order to prosper.  Appreciating your life is about being grateful for the people that are in your life that make it better, and the things that you have, even if they may not be everything in which you may desire.

We must be able to prefer to appreciate the things we cannot have instead of trying to appreciate things that we would not be able to appreciate.  There are things that every one of us can appreciate as well, Including your health, your family, and the fact that you are alive.

Appreciating your life calls for one to be humble, and calls for one to appreciate the journey to greatness that they are on, and not just the destination in which they are headed to. Also be willing to show others that you love that you appreciate their lives as well.

Relationships

Friendster ( Friend + Sister )


My oldest sister is indeed one of the BEST people that I know OR WOULD want and have the pleasure of meeting ……………indeed she is literally someone who has helped me keep up my sanity through rough and very stormy times – spending quality time even when it is only for a few hours is always PRICELESS with her…..

So if my sister was to EVER read my blog (s) to this I would say to her …..

To me you are an angel in disguise. Full of intuition, intelligent, and  wise. Always giving and helping through
Good times and bad. You are the  best friend I’ve ever had. If I had one wish it would surely be To give you as much as you’ve given to me. Though I’ve put our relationship through  some cloudy days, You’ve been my sunshine in so many ways.
Through trials  and tests, right by me You stood, And gave me your hand when you  could.

Thank you so much my sister, my friend….. My gratitude for you has no  end.
