Mommy, Can I Visit Heaven?

On this day, I thank God for allowing me and my family to see another day. He didn't have to do it, but he did and I'm forever grateful. As I walked to my kitchen, my youngest daughter Nyasia says mommy is it possible to visit Heaven and return to Earth?

I responded it has been said by doctor's that patients have died on the operating table. Miraculously, they were brought back to life, but that was the work of God working through the doctor. She said okay, but not like that. Now, I am very curious and I ask well NyAsia, what exactly do you mean? Her response was, can I go to Heaven to visit and then come back home. Similar to when we go to visit family and then return home after a few hours. I said, no I don't think that can happen.

A few minutes past and there was an awkward silence lurking between Nyasia an I. So once again, I wanted to know where this was going. I proceeded to inquire and asked, why did she ask that question? I also asked, who would she like to visit? She said I wanted to know because I would visit my baby cousin Sanai. 

At that moment, my heart melted and a sudden sadness took over my entire body.She was gone before we had a chance to meet. We ask the question why? Why you?  At the end of the day, God knew what was best. I like to think Sanai was to perfect for the world we live in and he wanted her with him. My niece would have been a year old. Not a day goes by that we don't think about her. God needed an angel and he chose Sanai. Sleep In Peace Sweet Pea (my nickname for her).Sanai holds a special place in our hearts. We will love her always and forever.

Your Child Is LGBT..It's Not The End Of The World!

I am not a parent of a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT) child, so I cannot say I understand what a parent of a LGBT child is going through. However, I have friends and family members who are and have children who are LGB so I can relate to a certain degree. Growing up I had friends who were gay and who were lesbians. A few of them told me and a few of them hid it from me. Why? I have no idea. What they failed to realize was I already knew, but I wanted them to tell me on their own. It is on no account painless for mothers and fathers to find out that their son or daughter is a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Nor is it any easier for the child to tell their mother, father, friends or other family members that they are or may be a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. I remember the day someone very close to me told me he was attracted to guys. He was so nervous. As he began to speak, he started stuttering and sweating bullets. After he finished speaking I did no

Being a Bold Leader

Stop and think about the following questions.   1. What does it mean to be bold? 2. What does it mean to be a leader?  3. Would you consider yourself bold, a leader or a bold leader?  There are several definitions and interpretations of what it means to be bold and to be a leader. My interpretation of being bold is not being afraid to take risks or make decisions (that lead to a positive result). I also think being bold is displaying confidence and courage as someone works to fulfill their purpose in the world. My interpretation of a leader is someone who has good organization skills which is required when working in a team setting or organization. I also think leaders stand behind their teams and works diligently to bring out the best in everyone. My interpretation of a bold leader is a combination of bold and leaders previously stated above. In addition, a bold leader is someone who has a clear vision, purpose, and a plan of action. It is someone who can get tho

What is happening to her? Puberty!

Today, our kids are exposed to so much information. Unfortunately, not all information is true and nor is the information from credible sources. However, discussions such as puberty among other topics should occur with the parents. Puberty is a very difficult stage for girls, boys and the family. They are very temperamental and often feel insecure. So as parents, it is our responsibility to reassure them that the changes they are going through emotionally, mentally and physically are normal. Puberty has reared its ugly head in my home. You would think I would be prepared since I have experienced this with my older daughter. The truth is I am prepared. However, I was not expecting it to happen so quickly. I have noticed kids are experiencing puberty a lot faster than in prior generations. Sadly, this has a lot to do with the meat and dairy. There are a lot of chemicals in our food and as a result of that, it is making our children develop a lot faster. As an adult, I do not recal
