This year…

For the past few days I, like most, have been a in an introspective state. Things that I want for my life have flashed before me more times than I can count. Then, I settle on a thought, it over takes me, and I’m inspired. This year, however, I don’t have any resolutions, per se. … Continue reading

Blessings with the Wash

It’s Laundry Day again! Tried to put it off as long as I could. But here I am! The Lord met me here today. For real. For the 1st time I noticed an abnormally large group of Caucasian people here (The laundry mat I love is in the ‘hood.). Young adults. I’m going about my … Continue reading

Getting Empowered

Missing my Mom

Just need a place to talk about it…

I’ve found people are noticing my bump and asking me. Thank goodness the answer is yes. LOL! We’ve told … Continue reading
