A lot goes into becoming an adult. This journey called life isn’t always easy, nor is it always hard. You live, love and learn. Hopefully as you progress you learn about yourself and are comfortable in your own skin. There was a point in my life where I wasn’t the person I was meant to … Continue reading
Let me paint the scene for you… The music is bumpin’. Long line at the door. Ladies in 5 inch heels, wearing low-cut/see-through tops and painted on pants. There’s an altercation at the door that spills into the parking lot. Sounds like a Friday night at the club right? Wrong. Sadly this was this a … Continue reading
Don’t Judge a Facebook by its Cover…
If you know me, you know that I like Facebook. I can be found most evenings sitting in front of my laptop keeping up with family and friends. Ok, I’m addicted, lol. I love being able to comment on the pictures of growing little ones and “like” inspirational, funny or witty posts. The social media site … Continue reading
The Ugly Truth
Over the past few months I have found myself in a place I have never been in before. I’m used to figuring things out on my own. Lately that has not been the case. Due to circumstances beyond my control I have been forced to rely on family and friends for the occasional helping hand. I know you are probably … Continue reading
Am I Making Sense?
As usual this topic has been inspired by the everyday lives of my family, friends as well as myself. Lately there seems to be an epidemic of sorts concerning communication or the lack thereof. Communication is an important component in any successful relationship. Be it romantic, parent to child, employer to employee, communication is … Continue reading
Happy Daddy’s Day!
I just wanted to take the time to wish all the Daddies “Happy Daddy’s Day.” As a “Daddy’s girl” I know the value of having a father that is present and active in his children’s lives. Unfortunately we live in a society where some men feel as though their presence is optional. There are far too many children with … Continue reading
Who Are You Raising?
“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child…” 1 Corinthians 13:11a (NKJV) A good sister/friend of mine posted about her thoughts on the way some people choose to raise their daughters on Facebook earlier this week. After reading her post and the comments of other moms, … Continue reading
A Story I Won’t Soon Forget
I have the awesome pleasure *insert sarcasm here* of working with the public. Over the past 7 years I’ve heard a million and 10 stories about any and everything you could imagine. Last week, I heard a story that was very different from any that I had heard prior to that day. An older woman came to me looking a little lost … Continue reading
Not Exactly Where I Thought I’d Be
Lately I’ve been thinking about the direction my life has taken in the past few years. Like many, I’m not exactly where I thought I’d be at this stage in my life. I had such a life planned for myself. At 28,*insert dream sequence here* I should have had my Master’s in Counseling, worked … Continue reading
For a while now I’ve struggled to find a new hobby. I had no idea what I could try that wasn’t completely out of the box for me. After having a cousin and a close friend publish books recently, I remembered that I once enjoyed writing. There have been topics I’d like to address but Facebook didn’t … Continue reading
