Motivational Monday – My Kids


MY KIDS. I only gave birth to 2 of these 9 kids but I love each of them so much. They motivate me to be the very best person and role model, I can be. I know I come short sometimes but they all show me grace.

Greg was my 1st born. You have a special place in my heart because we have went through so much together & are still standing strong together. Stan & Nene came next by marriage. We have had our challenges but I hope both of you know, I will have your backs until I take my last breath. Kierra Simone is my 1st born niece. This little lady is so beautiful inside and out. I cannot help to smile when I am around you. Angelia Marie, you are my babygirl, my quiet one. You may not say a lot but your beautiful spirit speaks volumes. Mr. James Ware, you are the kids cousin but you feel more like my son. It has been a honor to watch you grow and mature into the young man & soldier, you are today. Little Kori, you & I have had our battles with our personalities clashing but I wouldn’t change anything. I love the strong minded, not taking any nonsense young lady you have become. Lil’ Kobie, the youngest of my crew, watching how you take care of your sisters, especially you new baby sister, Magical, is a sight to behold. You are going to be the protector of the family when you get older. I cannot wait to see it. Last but not least, Gabby & Elizabeth, you 2 are my newest babies. You both are each unique and special in your own ways. I know you always have to deal with people calling you twins but know I see the wonderful individual in each of you.

I pray for each of these children like I gave birth to them. They motivate me to stay in prayer, for good situations and some times bad stuff, also. I am so blessed to have each of you in my life. I am grateful to the parents of the ones that I didn’t birth for trusting in me to be a good person to have in your children’s lives. I am throughly grateful and appreciative of having these beautiful souls in my life. Thank you, Jesus!!!


Magical, I don’t have a picture of you but one day I would love to become your Auntie, also.



Love Ya

This is my journey to strengthening my relationship with Jesus Christ & to discover the true purpose of my life. According to my Mother, I have always been a spiritual person. However, when I look back in my life, I didn’t follow God’s word. A few years ago, I had an eye opening experience that lead me on this path to grow closer to Jesus. During this time, I went through a traumatic divorce. I felt like I lost the respect of my son & daughter. I lost my career. I lost most of my materialistic, worldly items. BUT GOD! I didn’t lose Jesus. I actually found Him. I found the person that had always been there for me. In the past 5 years, I have been healed from so many things when I gave my life to Jesus. He blessed me with a husband I never thought I would deserve. My kids tell & show me that the love & respect me. I was giving the responsibility of helping raise 2 beautiful daughters. Plus, I was blessed in so many other ways, as well. In the midst of my blessings, I have been tested & attacked. These things have weakened & distracted me from my relationship with Christ. I have been backsliding in my relationship with God, almost to the point of being double minded. For 3 years I have heard that I must write. This confused me so much because I did/do not know what to write. So I put it off, I procrastinated, I just ignored what I heard from God. I would create FB pages & write what I believed He wanted me to write but it still didn’t feel like I was listening to God. This blog feels right. I have prayed about it. I have given it to God. So we will see what He allows me to share on this journey. Enjoy my journey with me!!!
