Reflections 5.25.17

  I haven't done a reflection post in a while because I felt like it was becoming a bit monotonous. I wanted to branch out and share other things that are going on in my life. To be honest, I still don't think that I've found my niche, but everyday it seems that I'm getting…

Growth

  We took advantage of the cold weather today and did a major deep clean. It's amazing the amount of stuff we've accumulated over the last 10 years. It felt good to toss out old, unwanted stuff. With our 11th anniversary coming up, hubby and I have been reminiscing about our past. When we first…

Passing Through

  While in Walgreens today, I was behind a woman who resembled my grandma so much. Her posture, style of dress, even her perfume. It made me weak, and I immediately called out to God for strength. Tears clouded my ears and I could picture her face so clearly. My grandma was the cornerstone of…

Reflections 5.1.17

  When I was pregnant with Boogie, my introverted nature was in overdrive. Those around me couldn't believe that I wasn't jumping at the chance to post about my pregnancy on social media. They wondered why I didn't want to share the wonderful news. I'll tell you.. Pregnant women are targets; when a woman becomes…

The Vanished

  I'm a crime buff. I enjoy reading books and  watching documentaries based on crime stories, past and present. It's something about these types of cases that pulls me in. I'm not one that gets excited about seeing pictures of dead bodies and crime scenes; it's more of the human connection, or lack thereof that…

Loss

  Almost 3 years ago, I lost my aunt, who truly was more like a sister, and someone whom I loved immensely. Her death was sudden and it completely turned my world upside down. Until that point, I don’t think I comprehended the meaning of one’s world being shaken, but I quickly learned. I found…

Reflections 4.18.17

I didn't always want to be a mother. I can remember on my 18th birthday telling my mom and grandma that I didn't want kids. The consensus was that I didn't like kids, and to be honest that was true. I really didn't like kids, and didn't see how they could improve on my life.…

Reflections 4.16.17

Happy Easter! I hope you had a wonderful day, and were able to enjoy spending time with your loved ones. Today was actually a good day for me, and church really helped to put me in a good headspace. My grandmother was heavily on my mind today, but as I cooked her recipes, I felt…

Reflections 4.14.17

Sometimes I wonder if I’m doing the right things. Did I talk to Boogie enough? Did I read and play with him enough? Was the food I cooked nutritious enough? Will he know that he is my greatest blessing in life? Will I be able to show him my love without being overbearing? Will hubby…

Grief

Grief is like a wave, sometimes you’re going along just fine, and the next moment you are struggling to catch your breath. They say that time heals all wounds, but I am not quite so sure that this is true. I would be more inclined to say that time lessens the pain of the wound,…
