This is how I feel when I spend time with God…..

This is how I feel when I pray to God…

This is how I feel when I talk to God…..

This is what I see when I am crying to God…..

This is how I feel when I am singing to God….

This is how I feel when I am learning from God….

This is what I know TO BE as long as I STAY with God…..

Love You BYE!!!


He went to camp for a week!! Oh how I love Jesus!! LOL Okay – I do not mean to sound so OVERLY excited that my kid is going away for a week BUT whew… I needed the break!

Back in April… I did a blog stating that I was sending my son to at least 5 different camps over the summer which 3 lasted a week each and then 1 camp was just for the weekend…..

Weekend or even just 1 day….. how my year has gone – I will take it!! Nonetheless, he is on his second trip for the summer and he goes AGAIN at the end of the month…

Whew again… Oh how I love Jesus!  LOL  I recall before that I would send him to camps because he is basically the only child and it is just me and him….. so of course to keep him from EVER being a momma’s boy…..being too dependent on me or anyone else…. staying a tough …rough and rugged boy…. maintaining his Christian values – I must allow him to be apart of several things so that he can not only have balance but also have FUN! He is certainly turning out to be an AMAMZING KID – thanks to God for showing me how!

School starts in 30 days and I am making the most of MY SUMMER for a change! #teammommy!  LOL

Family

Weekend Fun Part 5


Find ways to spend quality time with your son without the constant distractions you bring home from work. In many cultures it is common practice for men to work and the women to stay home and take care of the kids.

I agree with this role for married couples to some degree but as with anything you need to be flexible with this traditional family model.  Everyone is not married and they have to figure out what works for them as a family! I am a single parent but I rip and run and do things as if I was apart of a two parent house hold….It sounds VERY OXY-MORONIC but at times, that is how I feel.

My number one suggestion is to never allow yourself as a parent to find your identity in your career. By allowing your job to define who you are you unintentionally prioritize things like career, work, and business tasks over your FAMILY. In this situation when it would normally be time to take your son to the playground to talk to him and push him on the swing you find yourself checking your stock portfolio or emails on your Iphone and trying to push the swing at the same time.

I AM GUILTY of spending time with my son but holding the phone in my hand and it is horrible! He makes sure that he speaks up about it too……. However apart of my weekend I CHOSE to sincerely hang with my son and give him my FULL ATTENTION…..

Shopping and Cookout (s ) WILL HAVE anyone TIRED! However, time with friends are always a blessing………….. I had more fun today than he did im sure..

My son felt he had to stop at American Eagle to buy new outfits for “the day” so why are we in shoes stores? He had no answer but just kept “looking” at shoes!

His view was that he did not want to buy anything in the shoe store just look around…. Yes he is a good kid but as parents, we still must maintain standards!

Nonetheless, it was a great time for me to keep the phone in the purse – the whole time unless it rang!! It actually felt good to focus TOTALLY on him!
