And The Smile Returns

I needed some rejuvenation today so I called a good friend.  What the conversation did was put the important aspects of my life to the forefront of my thoughts.It reminded me that the reason I am feeling the way I do is because I lost sight of keeping God first.

When I wake up the first thing I NEED to think about is praising God for another day.Thank him for my breath, for the birds chirping, for a roof over my head, thank him for loving us all and keeping family healthy.I NEED to wake up feeling Blessed and eager to give blessings throughout the day rather than turning over and reading emails.I am always immediately annoyed after checking emails so I’m not sure why I continue to do it.
The phone call also reminded me that I need to speak victory over my life. Speak life! There’s much power in the tongue so if you speak depression into your life then it will soon pop up.If you feel your life is going nowhere then it probably is.Thank God for the circumstances that has not yet arisen.Th…

Is There Accuracy In How Others View You?

People always say who cares what others say about you but what if everyone is saying the same thing? Whether it's good or bad, how much truth does it hold?

My mom was right by what she said thought.  Back in the day I was not a very pleasant person at all. I was moody and sometimes rude to my friends. If I drank too much I could easily hurt everyone's feelings around me and not even care. I was wrong on so many levels. I remember a few close friends tried checking me about it but I disregarded them because it wa…


It’s so crazy to me how someone can be married for 63 years.Ro and I always say we want that.We want to grow old together.We want to be that couple that looks like each other (lol- I think they’re so funny and cute at the same time).
When we first got together the love I felt for him was powerful.It was so fast and so extreme.I almost caught myself wishing we would be a year into our relationship already so it could all make sense.How can you really tell a girlfriend or a family member that after only a couple of days you’re madly in love?
On the flipside I wanted to stay in that moment forever because I know what goes up must come down and the high I was on I never wanted to come down from.I also remember different people kept telling me enjoy this moment because once the honey moon phase ends you’ll never get it back it’s then that you will have a different kind of love for him.It’s love that you have to work on.I didn’t understand it and I didn’t want to believe it.
Ro and I have been…
