Summer of 2017

Have you ever been on a roller coaster ride when the train of cars slowly tick, tick, ticks up the steep hill only to plunge downward at warp speed? Well, the highs and lows of my summer felt just like being on the world’s tallest roller coaster, Kingda Ka, which stands 456 feet, at Six Flags [...]

Unexpected Jungle Trail

2017 started off with a bang! A bang that I didn’t plan. Unanticipated. Quite frankly, if my life were a NASCAR race, a caution would be nice about now, with a yellow flag that means all cars hold up now and a restart follows. But a NASCAR race my life is not. The day after Christmas I was [...]

5 on Friday: A Topsy Turvy Start

This year has already been full of topsy turvy emotions. Sad, mad, and well bad. Bad as in eating anything I want on most days, just as I’m not able to work out and enjoy my regular routine. 2017 started off with a bang when I broke the fifth metatarsal bone in my left foot. Everything [...]

Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving

I don’t know about you but my kitchen was turned upside down this afternoon. It was like I was an Iron Chef or something. Tomorrow will be a great day of feasting, being with family and friends, and counting blessings. I made the green bean casserole, the stuffing and yes, this jello dish [...]

Day 17: Boss’s Day

I don’t think I realized it was National Boss’s Day until I was surprised by the two ladies that I most love working with. They brighten my day, make me laugh, they keep me on track, and remind me not to take myself and the tasks at hand too seriously, after all, we’re not [...]

Day 12: The Influencer

She’s been on my mind since the training facilitator asked our group to write down a most influential person in your life. Most people might claim a mom or dad, someone in the family or a mentor. I’d put my influencer right up there next to my Granny who did the most monumental for [...]

Day 6: Judgment Day At The Airport

Judgment showed up all sleepy eyed at the airport for her 5:00AM flight, fully locked and loaded for six to seven hours of travel. You might agree that traveling these days is just not what it used to be. Granted I was straight off of two sixteen hour days and this was day three of waking up at [...]

Day 4: Why I Love National Night Out

I love the concept of National Night Out. Did you celebrate it in your city? It’s recognized once a year all over the country as a time dedicated to community building throughout neighborhoods across the nation. What began as a way to prevent crime in neighborhoods has only strengthened the [...]

Today. Tomorrow. Gratitude & Goals. (May & June)

Time has really flown by this month. So much happened in the month of May for the good and the bad, but nonetheless I remain grateful. May was full of teachable moments and hearing from God too. I needed God to see me through the grief process after loosing Skylar and He has surely shown up. [...]
