Mothers and sons really do have a unique relationship. Mothers are as much  responsible for how their sons are raised as fathers, and while it should be a  great time in your life to grow a young man, it should not be taken lightly.

Mothers are really the key to how your son will treat his wife one day! Knowing  your balance in the relationship and keeping open communication are so  important.

Really, your son is taking all sorts of mental notes about how you  react to him and others, and he is learning more than you think!

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….

Monday Motivations!


Today…lets crave to do better….inspire….but most importantly CHANGE….All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them. We must never be satisfied with what you achieve, because it all pales in comparison with what you are capable of doing in the future! However, in everything that you do, make sure that YOU do it with all of your power , your mind , strength and your soul , you will never go wrong!

Now the cool conversations that I have with my amazing kid!! We talked about Life’s challenges and how they are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are!  It is surmounting difficulties that makes heroes and Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict. Does my son understand… not everything as a whole ” some days ” but overall he does… He is smart and intelligent and wants to do right!

Overall, we both understand that  motivation is like food for the brain. You cannot get enough in one sitting. It needs continual and regular top ups.

Weekend Foolishness


Okay… you see my son’s face sooooo……that tells you that he either thinks that I am REALLY amazing or that his mood is great for maybe getting what he wanted… Both ANSWERS could actually work on today….  By the way and this is sooo random – with it being Saturday and all  -Why do MY SATURDAYS feel like work days? Why do MY SUNDAYS feel like work days? That is not how weekends are supposed to be correct?

Saturday is supposed to be a free fun filled day to lay around….sleep in… shope…eat…have fun…chat with friends…go to dinner.. etc..etc..

Sunday is supposed to be a peaceful, short day after attending church, breaking bread with friends or family and come home EARLY…

One day when EITHER of those things happen to transpire for me on EITHER a Saturday or a Sunday – then  I will be a changed woman! (for the better of course ) I guess until then…. my body will suffer from sleep deprivation and yearn tremendously for relaxation more than once a month!

Now by the end of our conversation AFTER he had discovered that he would NOT be getting his way as usual – he pays me back by NOT smiling for the photo –

Family

The 3 Amigos


Hanging out with my TWO FAVORITE GIRLS always keep me in a good  mind space….. just spending time – talking  – lauging – eating is a source of STRENGTH for each of us and I could not be more happier….. I even act super silly sometimes which STILL throws  my sister off because she is so used to be only being 100000% super serious like all of the time! LOL

Family does not always mean the individuals that share the same blood line as you – However, I am glad that my mommy cakes and my sister happen to be blood line family members that I call friends. I have a great deal of girl pals that do not have relationships with either their mothers or fathers and sometimes even both parents!

I cannot IMAGINE how that would feel at all because the estranged relationships that I have with a few of my siblings do not feel too good, so not having a good rapport with a parent would mostl likely KNOCK THE WIND out of me……

We are indeed The 3 Amigos….. they are MY friends…. MY compadres….MY accountability partners….my partners in crime ( good crime ) LOL and of course that it takes a PIONEER to ” keep it all together ” and that is Mommy Cakes – boy she is a STRONG WHIPPER SNAPPER and is amazing! Her INNER STRENGTH is just breath taking and to be honest, She isnt bad on the eyes either I tell ya!!!

Relationships

Distance Can Be Your Friend….


Distance for some loved ones is what is needed to maintain at least a satisfatory relationship……for some people it is good to stay in contact by way of technology…..you are not too close and not too far but there is a way that you can always stay in touch with one another..if need be

However, Loving a few people from a distance and give them the space and time that is needed so that they can get their minds right….their actions right…their motives right before you allow them back into your life… Again it is our individual choice / decision whom we let enter our lives….

Forget the slogan of reason…season and lifetime… sometimes there are people who do not even FIT at all and we still try to “find a space for them” or a nice cozy undeserving slot… why do it if we know FROM THE BEGINNING that they do not belong in your life….let alone NEAR US?

I am sure that we all have been there….. but the difference is that I STOPPED it.. now it is your turn!! Stop letting people enter who are not welcomed!

Thinking of my buddy Phil ( for single and married couples ) and all of his great wisdom right now….. much love my friend!

2 Headaches……


I tried so hard not to laugh at this but I was not able to ….  The guy above me needs Gabbby Douglas and then I felt bad for chuckling so hard and I stopped UNTIL this little boy below…I felt HORRIBE that I laughed.. but where is the adult supervision at this bowling alley? I am serious!

Whew Jesus, the little boy slipping on the floor and with this HEAVY bowling ball almost knocking him through the floor was so not cool! Did you see how HARD this little boy’s HEAD SMACKED THE FLOOR? Some serious damage was going on here….. Yikes……….
