Mothers and Sons


image

As much as my kid works my nerves… I do love hanging out with him…. Just going out to hang out with friends is soo relaxing mentally.. It’s been just me and him for so long that as a single parent..I need space a few times a week.
image

However, it is rightfully so (in my son’s mind of course) that if we aren’t together…he needs to know my very whereabouts! ! I used to tell him ALL 10 things…  BUT know I had to literally scale it back / down to like 4 things.. . .  I set up an atmosphere that he felt as if it was his RIGHT TO KNOW my every single whereabouts!!! Lol
WhileI’m out doing MY own thing and just breathing my own air without my kid trying calculate how much I breathed WITHOUT HIM…..

When I pick him up to head home….I actually have the nerve to miss him as well…LOL – He indeed is a special kid…

Good Song 4 My Son –


This song just put my son to sleep!! It is AMAZING how good God is….. Worship is a beautiful thing! Look at my baby sleeping sooo peacefully! Parenting can be tough when it comes to trying to keep your kids from getting hurt….

I am so so happy – that he was able to let the song minister to his heart!!! Welp, so on that note… Good night folks!

Hanging With My Bestie


image

Welp, as usual……my momma needs / wants to run around and 5 stops will be the minimum! !!

She loves just being on the go and never really has a prime destination!.  Just getting out of the house to just rip and run…LOL

image

I don’t mind running around with MY MOMMY because with her being a very young 73 years of agr, I better never complain right!!!

You would think the mall would be her firat or favorite place to atop…NO!!! It’s the regular grocery store folks!!! LOL

image

Its sooooooooo weird because I’m telling the truth too!! Hower, I’m grateful that God allows her to continually wake up everyday….  it’s a blessing because we all know that a great deal of folk didn’t wake up today. .  But My Mommy did!

Interesting Day!


image

We had such a good day today!!!! He was able to spend time with his other parent after his soccer game and just relax and have fun….. My other son had me laughing in stitches and trying to figure out when I would meet his girlfriend …. these college kids!

image

My son was trying seriously to convince me why he needed more xbox 360 Kinect Games! LOL

image

image

He smiled for the camera…hoping and praying that his face would melt my heart…….nope!!!! not so!

image

image

He began to start his speech like he was running for political office on the importance of this Soccer Game! LOL

image

He wanted to show me the comparison in prices with different games to show me that I would be getting a deal if I purchased them for him all today!!! This boy is indeed my son because he knows how to debate and present a case very well!!!

image

AFTER….my son twisted my arm to get him a few more games…..he left very happy and couldn’t wait to get in the car to head home…..

image

When you sit back & see some things from AFAR….God will show,expose and uncover some things you missed when you were UP CLOSE!! I am so glad that I am able to REALLY see clearly now… My son and I have endured and overcame a great deal of things and we are walking testimonies!

image

He was tired of taking pictures, so he acted as if he fell asleep! Overall this child had an amazing day and it is still early!

It has indeed been a while since my last blog! Well, things have been just sooooo busy in all areas of my life…… for the BETTER, thank you Jesus! Too much to go into but the list is long and some things are nice to keep to myself… ( for now )……Obtaining different perspectives on things…people and life will always make you re evaluate what is important. Love is something that God has commanded us to do for loved ones as well as enemies….we are to LOVE one another –

It is great when you can recognize the blessings that are in front of you as well as lying within you – waking up and being able to spend time with whom you love and do the things that make you happy is a HUGE blessing. Nothing can compare to the love of God and being PERMITTED/ GRANTED the grace of choosing to follow Christ and His benefits.20121222_201657

Please take a small moment and FIND OUT who and what is important in your circle – pluck up all the weeds so that your original garden can bloom again! Do not allow negative situations to kill the garden that God himself has divinely blessed you with…..Know that it is up to us to plant it and nurture it correctly….

From this Christmas on, it is imperative to make it about family. The gifts and running around, the sadness and disappointment of not having enough… Release that. Allow your mind to be at peace. Get your family around you and celebrate them.  Look into the mirror and ask if you have done all that you can to bring peace… My younger son and I is amazed on how his older brother has MATURED!!! THANK YOU JESUS!!! He still has a great ways to go but I am grateful for the tiny steps that my son has chosen to take on his own……It is a blessing and yes I am soooooo proud! ( WHEW – FINALLY )

THIS is what Christmas is – A family gathered to [celebrate a child]. So celebrate each other. Nothing matters more than your family time spent together I do urge you to love those who YOU call and consider -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!!!
