Yesterday, I Was.....Today, I Am.....

Yesterday, I was.....
  • A writer with no words to write 
  • An author with nothing to publish 
  • An artist with a blank canvas 
  • A singer without a song to sing 
  • A runner, with no sense of direction and going nowhere fast
  • An athlete with no game to play 
  • A teacher who has nothing to teach 
  • Guarded and afraid to love another man
  • A parent who felt unsure as I faced problem and challenges of motherhood
  • I was a prisoner of my past
  • Living in fear

Today, I am.....
  • A writer who has much to say 
  • An author who will tell her story
  • An artist who has created the vision I want for my life
  • A singer with a song in my heart and praise in my mouth. 
  • Taking the necessary steps to move my life in a more meaningful direction
  • Learning to succeed at this game called life 
  • A mother who taught her daughters to love themselves mind, body and soul
  • A mother who taught her daughters to surround themselves with positive people 
  • Vulnerable and willing to take the risk of loving again
  • Learning from my mistakes and becoming a better parent and individual
  • Forgiving myself
  • Trading my fear for faith

Today, I Am Enough!

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

A Prayer for My Brown Girls

One of my prayers for my daughter's is that God continues to guide them as they navigate through life. I pray that they will be surrounded by and interact with like minded individuals. I pray they really know and understand that the decisions they make today not only will have impact today or tomorrow but also in the future. I pray that God continues to open doors, the right doors for them as well as close the wrong ones.  I ask God to protect them from anyone who seeks to do harm unto them. Protect them for hurt, harm  and dangers known and unknown. I pray that they always put their faith and trust in him. Continue to strive for greatness and do their best in all that they do.  “When you have faith in God, you don’t have to worry about the future. You just know it’s all in His hands. You just go to and do your best.” -unknown

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
