We played around and acted super silly as we got mom to the hospital and waited until her surgery was over….We talked about family as usual…new traditions…the ups and the downs….different types of friendships / relationships…. how we can do things going forward….the holidays…the family reunion…..what is missing.. etc…..etc….

I was exhausted by at least this EARLY afternoon! – LOL ….I was sleepy….smelled a bit “interesting” ..had to leave and go to 2 different appointments….get cleaned up…pick my son up..feed him..help him with homework AND STILL COME BACK TO THE HOSPITAL!…

My niece is standing here talking to my mom and just being ever so grateful to the Lord for bringing her out of surgery. … She sooo sweet!!!

Well honey- praise the Lord that ALL went well because the story that her doctor shared with me and my oldest sister was mind boggling via my mommy’s “previous condition” before she went under the knife… God is amazing and I soo enjoyed the look on the doctor’s face when he could NOT EXPLAIN NOR UNDERSTAND how she was even still alive –

I simply told him that it was by the GRACE OF GOD – Gosh..I absolutely LOVE this woman!!

Parenting

First Day –


image

My son acts as if ” FIRST DAYS OF SCHOOL ” are no longer a big deal for him but that is NOT THE CASE! He tries to become super cool, especially with him going into 6th grade this year- Each parent does things differently but I try to plan!

Maybe is the first day of School in your child’s life ever. Maybe he or she is making a transition to middle school, or you just moved to a different neighborhood or a different city altogether.

Truth is this is a very important day. The way you help them deal with this first day will have an impact not only on the rest of the school year but also will let them know that they can trust you to help solve problems they may meet at their school all year round.

First find out if your school allowed you to have your own tour with your child. The couple of weeks before school starts, teachers start getting ready for the coming year and they also have meetings in the school premises.

The real first day start with a good breakfast, some kids get so nervous they cannot eat so simply offer something they cannot refuse, like their favorite cereal. Last but not least if they are taking the bus give them the big hug and kiss at home or if you are driving them before you get in the car. If they need a hug and or a kiss before they leave your side they would ask one.

You can NEVER be too careful, learn too much or know too much about the places of where your child will be – Keep in mind, it is the year 2013……things are indeed totally different from when YOU were in school – so be more focused!

Relationships

My Sister – Friend……



image

I have to say I have one of the best sisters in the world. We are best buddies, we have built a friendship that has been intended to last forever. Have we always got along? Absolutely not!!!! We fought, slapped, griped, connived, deceived and a bunch of other unmentionables. Why are we best friends? Distance, Pain and Love – that’s why! I was a spoiled BRAT as a child – shame on ME.

But there is no reason why sisters should not be close…..I mean well, why not? Although, GOD KNOWS that we are very different from one another, but yet share the same blood, that is one good reason to love each other. Even though I feel that I was a “mean girl” to her when I was 12 years old and wanted to cause her pain….. love soon resolved the matter and we tearfully made it right and moved on. A moment of forgiveness is more powerful than years of resentment, refrain, abandonment, discord, degrading and avoiding.

There is a certain amount of love and commitment when you are of kindred blood, but if that isn’t enough then we have to selflessly invest into the relationship and be a die-hard mediator that pursues unity. Oh, I almost forgot to say that I love her and feels that she indeed is pretty awesome! LOL

Inspiration

My “Current” – Pick Me Up –


It is soooo great to “run into songs” that just makes you SMILE and gitty all inside….. I REALLY feel good this morning – My own inspiration on this morning…

Regardless how they sing this song – it makes me HAPPY!

Relationships

Fun and Me


19

Fun is a word that SELDOM lived within my vocabulary ….let alone my life – I cannot believe HOW SERIOUS, I used to be about everything! Geesh!

Laughter is something that seems to put a smile on your face, make your stomach hurt, bring tears to your eyes, bring a chuckle to your heart and so much more! So I think to myself, why in the world did I choose to miss out on sooooooo  much?

My circle from a few years ago compared to my circle now is almost completely like night and day because of the changes that I have done from within.. I am still somewhat the same but when you grow in God, you can NO LONGER stay completely the same because God is all about progress1

Church fun is different sometimes when you are in leadership because you are trained to ALWAYS be serious ( over serious and deep ) about so many things that it can ROB you of the JOY OF BEING A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST!

So glas that part of my life over! I now slay demons and laugh all at the same time! LOL

Fuss with my some friends and show love all at the same times!

Remain stern with my kids while not neglecting the Christ that I stand for!

Maintain relationships that are important and kill the ones that are not!

Respect the differences that I have amongst strangers but have an open mind to who they are as well!

Pray for loved ones who I chose not to deal with but still have the space within to wish them the best!

Understand that God is able to do exceeding and abundantly far more than I can ask or think but know that I still must wait on HIM!

God is awesome – is He not!!!
