My heart weights heavy today.
My loving mom died this morning.
She was never in pain or ill ...she never woke up from her sleep this morning.
A shock to all who know her.
Don't know why.....
My family and I will take this time to ......
I am sorry I don't know what to say right now.
Kindly prayer for my dad that he gets through this and for my sister.
I need this time to think......I don't know what to say.
I don't know why my mom didn't wake up this morning.
I started my day with a prayer, breaking bread with my family and wrote down in our "Family Journal". Why I am grateful for this day. Have a great day everyone!
Start this week by reflecting on, and, counting your blessings. Speak gratitude for the good in your life and let go of even that shred of negative vibes.
This week come try a class with Coach Tony B.!
“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only with what you are expecting to give — which is everything.”
Have a great Monday everyone!
Five years ago, I received a gift of $100+ given to me by my class: A group of amazing women. As any wise woman would said: "Use this gift wisely."
I told them, that I would.
Hence, placing the $100+ in a leather case which I keep in my top desk drawer.
There are moments during those 5 yrs where I was in much "need" of that $100. I would put it in my wallet only to repeat the words..Is this a wise moment to spend this $100+.
Yesterday, was such a moment. It was in my hand, as I stood in a store check out line. I prayed with the understanding that this was a wise moment.
As always it was not....I was able to hold on to it, one more time.
Understand, that it would be spent one day....but with a purpose as it was given to me for a purpose by the wise women.
I am the only problem I will ever have....
And...I am the only solution!
In my down moments in 2016.
I dont crawl under a rock and hide.
I stood tall and...grew in my pain to survive.
Look what I am becoming!
My Joke of the Day:
I called my dad in Trinidad...
"Hummm, what's up?"
"Yeah dad, I figured the time line on where I when wrong in life....and would like a "Do Over!"
" What you smoking boy!"
" Well I wanted to move back home and start my life over as an 11 year old.....so"
Click.....my phone went dead.
I called back
"Boy why you want to kill me this morning ..I too old and I dont have Do Overs!
Started over my conversation......
By the way I do this to my dad all the time. It makes great conversation when he laughs.
Last weekend, my basement flooded and lost everything in that area.
I have been through a fire storm of events this year.
And so have you!
I was not angry for I have been to the mountain tops many times, and, saw amazing things happen to me.
How blessed am I.
The water was contained and cleaned out the area till 3:30am.
I am....exausted but not defeated.
