Born and raised in Atlanta, Ga. I've loved to write since grade school. I am a Biblical Counselor, Chef, and self published author of the books titled, “One For The Reason Of Love” and “Betrayed With A Kiss.”

Ever feel like the above picture? Trying to juggle life can be both exciting and stressful at times. We’re trying to study for final exams on only an hour of sleep because we work a full time job not to mention Jr. just went to sleep at 5am the same time the alarm went off for you to make your husband a cup of coffee, straighten his tie and kiss him before he’s off to work. “I just need some time to myself. “Not right now baby, mama is using the potty.” ” Sorry that I can’t make the football game son, daddy has to work.” How many times we’ve said these things not realizing how it affects our loved ones? Don’t get me wrong, every now and then we need to set aside some “me” time for ourselves. There is nothing wrong with some peace and quiet every now and then to collect our thoughts. A vacation is definitely helpful as well. All I’m saying is never be too busy to be bothered by loved ones. I know personally that I’m happy to get a break whenever my kids go out of town with their grandmother but five minutes after they leave I be like a sick puppy by the door waiting for them to come back. 🐶 We have to cherish our kids, our spouse, parents, relatives and close friends even when their a headache. They need us and depend on us for something that only we can give. There will come a day that our kids will grow up and we’ll miss the days that they use to bother us. I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news but we don’t live forever either so, cherish every moment and never be too busy to be bothered. 😘

We may hear this a lot whether it comes up as a discussion amongst friends or if you know someone that always receives the short end of the stick. 😉 You may even be that person .😎 Have no fear I’m here to give some insight to this mystery. Now that I have your attention let me direct you to a personal question. What is keeping you from making an impact on the world? I know a lot of y’all may be thinking. What? Yeah I threw a curve ball at y’all! Y’all was looking to left field but I hit it right. 🙃 Believe it or not I came across this pondering question while taking a dump! 💩 It may not sound lady like but it’s real. We all do it no matter how cute we are. Anyways, to get back on topic I want to make you think about something. It’s not the size but the impact. Now repeat the previous sentence…. You don’t have to be a billionaire or an A list celebrity to make an impact on the world. What are you doing today that will positively impact someone on your job, at home, at the grocery store or taking a walk in your neighborhood? It may seem like you have to do a lot but I assure you that something as little as a friendly smile or an encouraging word can be all a person needs to make their day. Kindness is contagious! Your act of kindness to one person can result in someone else being blessed and before you know it you could even save a life! 😊 So for the burning question in your mind. Size does not matter but the impact does! You may say “What can little old me do that will make an impact on this big world?” Be the best you that you can be and spread the love! Come on, you can do it! It’s not rocket science. So if you’ve been getting the short end of the stick in your job, relationships, finances or whatever it maybe, I challenge you to move some things around, change up your game, you may even have to deal with being in an uncomfortable situation for a while (come on Holy Spirit, I just felt something in my spirit y’all) but do whatever it is that you need to do to make your climax and not just any climax but your major climax! 😬 I may have lost a few of y’all again but I assure you that I am not talking about sex. I’m talking about reaching the point of it all and doing it at your BEST because it’s not the size that counts but the impact!

My philosophy is “A better me today makes a greater me tomorrow.” We all have dreams, aspirations or things we simply can improve on. What keeps us from reaching those goals? Most of the time it’s ourselves. God has given us all a talent and a purpose. Some people spend a lifetime trying to figure out what their purpose is. It may seem far fetched but it’s really simple. What is the one thing that you love doing? Not only do you love doing it but you’re great at it and it not only benefit you but it benefits others as well. No I’m not talking about sitting around watching T.V. looking at other people live their dream. What are you doing to make your today better so that your tomorrow can be even greater? For me it’s writing. I knew that I would be an author someday since I was eight years old and every chance I get, I’m making those small steps today that will eventually get me to my greater tomorrow. The road will be ruff sometimes and the rain will pour but keep going, keep pushing and keep pressing! ☺️ So I encourage anyone who has put a dream on hold whether it’s something as small as planting a garden. Remember the seed you plant today could feed a million people tomorrow. Much love. 🙂

Wouldn’t it though? I could use a vacation right about now. Not just one of those getaways or even 7 day vacations either. But one of those I’ll send you a post card vacations because I don’t know when I’ll be back! Has God already pre warned you about something and told you what to hold your peace about a situation but when the time came you did what you “felt” was right at the time and not exactly what God told you? Yeah, well today that happened to me… After a frustrating day of trying to track a couple of packages that I was supposed to receive in the mail I attempted to get some answers from the local USPS Sorting Facility. Well the guy who answered my phone call was having a pretty frustrating day as well and was getting short with me and all I wanted to know was when my packages would arrive. To make a long story short he hung up in my face and immediately everything God said went out the window. 😡 I speed dailed the Sorting facility back and the guy did not answer. Lucky him… He was going to get a piece of my mind today and frustration is only the beginning of what he would have felt. Anyways I’m saying all of that to say this. He could have picked up the phone and I could have gave him the bizzness not business because he wouldn’t have benefited not one red cent off what I was going to say. But God cut that conversation short and the guy didn’t know it but it was God who stopped him from answering the phone when I called back. Ain’t God good! 😊He knows that we can be a handful at times and he gets us out of situations even when we are hard headed. I was so mad by how rude that guy was and could have made a bad decision that could delay my mail even further or even could have gotten him fired. But God always intervene in situations like this because he knows I’m a knuckle head. My prayer for today is that God forgive me for not listening to your wisdom and forgive me for acting on emotional impulses. Help me to believe that you are working everything out for my good and I don’t ever need to be anxious about anything. In Jesus name. Amen. ☺️ Scripture reading  Philippians 4:6-7

Well it isn’t exactly on the calendar but every day is “their” day. Who are “they”? Well I’m glad you asked. My four daughters of course. They range in age from 10 to 16 and they remind me of it everyday. From my 15 year old bribing my 10 and 11 year old to do her chores for candy or some of her chips 😑 to them arguing over who wore who’s headband while a line pile up at the bathroom door as they tell my 16 year old to get out of the bathroom mirror taking selfies so that they can pee! 😆 Oh the joys! They are overall very good kids though. They are doing very well in school, and they help out a lot around the house. Even though the house may seem out of balance at times they keep me well balanced. Sometimes I want to scream and my youngest daughter will quote a scripture to get me back on track. My 11 year old is very giving and she calms a lot of chaos in the house (even if she causes it) by always sharing and being the bigger person. My 15 year old helps out a lot and makes sure that her little sisters are doing what they are supposed to (including doing her chores) and last but not least my 16 year old who is the replica of me. She always comes to spend time with me and let me know what’s going on in her life (after she talks to her friends on the phone and finish posting selfies online). They grow up so fast and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. They remind me that I do have someone who is looking up to me and everyday that God grants me life I’m reminded that today is “Daughters day”! 😊
