Mamma Mia

Mamma Mia Mother’s Day weekend is here. Y’all, may I be completely honest? I have about five rough drafts of blogs I’ve meant to put out and have not. The constraints of work and some dear losses in my life have put me in a dip of sorts. As this particular day, Mother’s Day comesContinue reading “Mamma Mia”

Signing on the dotted line

To start talking about signing, I have to go back in time to tell you how it all started. It has been a good two years that I have been speaking into a digital voice recorder and typing away editing at some of the most intimate thoughts in my head. If I had told youContinue reading “Signing on the dotted line”

A Declaration For 2022

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening . . . depending on when you read this blog. This blog was written on New Year’s Day. As every new year approaches, I am sure you have some resolutions in your mind or maybe you took it a step further and wrote them down. Whichever the caseContinue reading “A Declaration For 2022”

Cooking for the first time on Thanksgiving Day

I must start by saying that I have a new and deep respect for every person who cooks for Thanksgiving Day. I never really knew all that it entailed. All the planning, buying, and extra things one must do to make that day happen is a huge undertaking. Not one person may complete the taskContinue reading “Cooking for the first time on Thanksgiving Day”

Dear Mom

Like any other holiday, Mother’s Day is one of the days we can all gather together and celebrate the woman who gave us life.  Not only that, but a few of us can also celebrate the gift of giving life.  Whichever it may be, I celebrate you today.  There is a mother in each and every one ofContinue reading “Dear Mom”

Unstuck

As many of you are aware, the majority of the year 2020 has kept most of us at home.  Working from home, eating from home, exercising from home, and the occasional trip to the grocery store.  At least that has been the case for me.  I was personally working from home as a school based occupational therapist sinceContinue reading “Unstuck”

Live Life

This blog is long overdue.  This is my third blog since I have started blogging this year.  It may also be one of my hardest blogs to write because it is too personal.  But when I started this blogging venture, I made a promise to myself to be honest and faithful to the purpose of it.  Have youContinue reading “Live Life”

The Ban Has Been Lifted

These past couple of weeks have been anything but normal.  When the shelter-in-place started, it took our state by surprise when we had to shift to a new normal of staying at home.  As for me, it was unchartered territory for my work and home living environment to co-exist together.  In my journal pages, I would start themContinue reading “The Ban Has Been Lifted”

Power To Speak Up

I am so excited to share with you the reason why I titled this blog post Power to Speak Up. I have always said that Proverbs ended in a bang with Chapter 31. One specific verse that is so dear to my heart is verse 8.  The King James Version (KJV) reads, “Open thy mouthContinue reading “Power To Speak Up”
