Was your 2017 Cozy?


The end of the year of 2017 is finally upon us. It’s time to reflect on the good, the bad, the ugly as well as the indifferent. It is all relevant and helped us all to arrive at this destination together.

We’ve seen a new U.S. President be named, we’ve seen countless riots disguised as protests. We’ve watched the NFL become political, when they should just be throwing touchdowns, the one thing they are paid to do. We’ve seen family and friends disintegrate due to their personal beliefs. Such a tragedy.

Hopefully, 2018 will bring some overdue peace to those who are still in an uproar since January 2017. Let’s all be realistic that the problems we are facing did not just manifest themselves this year. If anything they’ve been brought to our afternoon, unapologetically. These issues we must all, collectively be brood accountable for them. Even when we are silent, we have still chosen a side.

So, for the rest of 2017, forget the past, since it cannot bee changed. But focus on your future. Make it full of love, understanding, empathy, and all of the coziness you can muster. Life is what we make it and I choose to LiveFree and LoveOnPurpose into God says otherwise.

Happy New Year Everyone. 👌🏾🎉🎉🎉💯

Heal The World 🤗


For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Shame on you Mr. Brown


I am black. I am proud. I love my country. And I DO NOT approve of this message. Most blacks that I know, would not either. This is pure foolishness and adds to the dysfunctional conversation that is being had in the media these days. Every culture has been enslaved, at one point. My family has never allowed any of us to accept the victim role, under any circumstance and that we are accountable for our own lives.This Professor is the perfect reason why I pulled them out of school to homeschool for a few years. (Just my 2 cents)

 

To know what I am talking about, read the post at the link below. It is a professor in Maryland at a University who believes that all whites should find any black person and deposit their unearned money into their account. The problem is this is being taught at a higher education location. The youth who are uninformed will take this as gospel. I do not and will NEVER agree with such a stance against any group of people.

Together in Time w/Burnette


A song comes on the radio and instantly, you’re transported to a different time and place. Which song(s) bring back memories for you and why? Be sure to mention the song, and describe the memory it evokes.

For me. it is Carol Burnette‘s song  “I’m So Glad We Had This Time Together”  that she used to say at the end of every show. She was and still is my favorite improv comedians. She is one the greatest ever. Growing up, I tried my hardest not to miss any of her shows. Her shows and performances are ageless and timeless.This song is a song for he grandmother who had passed away and at the end of every episode she would tug on her ear and say, I’m so glad we had this time tother. Now, that I am older and have lost my granny, who was also my BFF, I can truly relate to this song.

Mountain Out Of A Mole-Hill *Sorta


Maybe our paths will meet up again

 

Or maybe that time has passed and we must now look

 

Upon our own separate futures and wish each other the best

 

Never forget the times that we have shared together, for

 

That is what joined us in the first place

 

All of our trials and tribulations have led to our current life path.

 

I am thankful for all of my scars that I have earned while climbing this mountain that we call life.

 

Never forget that there is no mountain high enough and no valley low enough that will deter me from Living Free & Loving On Purpose

Sprint to Tmo


I sure hope this merger goes thru. I miss T-Mobile they are an awesome company and their signal is AMAZING. Besides overpriced Verizon. Can you feel me now💯😂

T-Mobile and Sprint are close to agreeing to terms of a merger, say sources speaking to Reuters. Once the terms are set, the two companies would perform due diligence and then the deal is expected to be complete by the end of October.

Advice for Job Seekers


As the maxim goes, it’s easier to get a job when you already have one. New research shows just how much harder unemployed people have to work to land open positions than their employed competitors—and offers clues on how they can leverage that disparity to their advantage. Economists from Columbia University and the Federal Reserve…

Healed From The Shadows


Happiness is a state of being

Empathy is the state of seeing

All is capable within us, to

Live free and love on purpose😆

     Healing is something we do daily and probably moment by moment. But, being alive is another day to make ourselves better than yesterday. Don’t we owe that to our former selves of yesterday to be better today? Continue reading Healed From The Shadows

Me & My Limerick


A poem about the imperfect nature of someone or something. Here is my installment to this assignment.


What it is she

truly wrote

Will make you want to

gag and choke

It’s not in her

nature to pout or complain

She’ll just pick

herself back up and try once again

But, maybe it’s best we

end it on this note




Today’s form: limerick

The limerick at a glance: Limericks are traditionally composed of five lines of verse. The traditional rhyming scheme of a limerick is a a b b a — the first two lines rhyme, then the next two, and the final verse rhymes with the first couplet.

Today’s device: enjambment

Today’s poetic device is all about the arrangement of words on the page, and how that arrangement affects the pace of our reading: enjambment. It may sound like a mouthful. But what it describes is a really simple phenomenon: when a grammatical sentence stretches from one line of verse to the next

We Live To Serve 😁😁


Suddenly twenty-one years passed

Under my nose you became a man

Not just any man, no

Not just. But a man who will be honorable and humble

You are me and I am you, with God on our side, there’s nothing you can’t do

LiveFree and LoveOnPurpose my son.  The world awaits. ❤💋💕
Today is the first day of my son’s life as a man.  He will be graduating from United States Air Force (USAF), basic military training (BMT). Considering he just graduated high school in March is 2016, I’m truly ecstatic.

I’ve had many people ask me why I’m so happy or proud that my children chose to serve their country. I know that everyone has their own reasons for their displeasure with the military and government. But, as I tell my children, you can complain on the sidelines or you can be apart of the conversation, unapologetically. Their job is to be productive and useful citizens of America. I demand that they use their God given abilities and talents to serve others and not themselves. Well, not themselves exclusively 😁

(Did I mention his sister, my baby, left for the USAF BMT yesterday😘😁 #ProudMama😉

Sooooooooooo, tomorrow the ceremonies begin and we’re now in San Antonio awaiting the morning.  5am can’t come fast enough. Seems like it’s going to be a loooooooooooooong night😂.

For lunch my husband and I went to this buffet 🤤😝. Needless to say, dinner will be better.  Here’s the issue and tell me if you can feel our pain.  We went to this Chinese buffet (possibly issue#1) however it has 3.7 rating. It should be two whole points less, like 1.7. Their buffet prides itself on variety, therefore it’s name is Tappinyaki with American Japanese and Chinese. With that confused menu, we should’ve turned around.  This is what happens when you’re hungry, and don’t want to wait to eat.  Ugh.  Won’t be experimenting with food anymore during this 4 days graduation.

But wait!  The hotel just stuck a menu of a Grand Opening pizzeria, may have to give them a try.  Well  the hot wings anyway.  Can’t really mess up hot wings. And they’re open until 3am.

As my son would say in this scenario YOLO just get it mom.

To be continued… 😉😂😝

Let’s Think About This


I agree with you, Mr. Barkley. Those statues never did anything to stop me from living my life to the fullest. You cannot erase history and it is foolish to think you could. And why all of a sudden did everyone wake up at the same time pissed off at the statues? I don’t get it. If everyone looked at life more open, they can be teaching moments. People from the past have tried to erase the history of many cultures, and have succeeded. Don’t believe me? Ask a black person who is from America, how far back they can trace their ancestry. It stops a few generations back. Let me speak for myself, my family ancestry only goes back four generations before me, then it is all a blur. But, it is what it is. I still live and love on purpose, because that is how God made me. He made me in a way that does not dwell on things I cannot change, but to learn from them and be better than I was the day before.

Be Encouraged and Remember to LiveFree and LoveOnPurpose

Mind Your Own Fragrance


The fragrance of betrayal is deafening. It keeps us from acknowledging the pain and confusion we cause in others, as well as ourselves.

The fragrance of self-righteousness is warming and consoling. It causes us to believe we are above the fray. When in reality we are the cause of dismay.

United We Stand


I totally love this guy, Colion Noir, and I have NEVER been on the #BLM bandwagon because I feel that it is an extremist group no different than any other hate group. However, like the video states, who is fighting for our 2nd Amendment gun rights. I know that our country is not perfect, far from it, but we must remember that we are roughly 250 years old as a country and we are all still learning how to live with one another. We have people here that have come from all walks of life from all over the world, with different values and cultural beliefs. But, if we say that we love and follow God, then we must learn to love everyone as we want them to love and respect us. It is a two-way street. We are a family that believes in this country and all that she has to offer. I come from a military family who has fought with some of the bravest men and women this country has to offer. My two youngest are currently serving in the USAF. You will never catch any of us disrespecting the flag or what she represents

I come from a military family who has fought with some of the bravest men and women this country has to offer. My two youngest are currently serving in the USAF. You will never catch any of us disrespecting the flag or what she represents. To learn from our past in order to build a better future for our country. We are a work in progress here. I understand that there are some that will disagree with me and my stance, and that is okay. we can always agree to disagree. That is what makes us and our country and beliefs so great. We are individually made to be great in our own rights. Without discrimination or prejudice towards another who disagrees with us. 

So Remember to LiveFree and LoveOnPurpose in all that you do and God will handle the Rest.

Life’s Carousel


This carousel makes me ill

Always circling what’s not real

Round we go with no direction

Only to feel the sting of neglecting

Until we end this vicious cycle of confusion

Self-esteem will be nothing more than an illusion

Enter each day with “glass half-full” direction

LivingFree and LovingOnPurpose will be the conclusion

Just A Little Side Note


I swear some folks boycott and protest the wrong things. Why not do this when Ray Rice knocked the hell out of his GF, now wife, on camera and the NFL tried to cover it up until the video went viral. Just like this guy had the right to take a knee for the National Anthem. The #NFL has the right not to endorse his behavior. How can you not protest the #NFL and their ignorance when it comes to domestic violence instead of protesting this fool who decided to disrespect the flag that allowed him to play football in the first place. #GTFOH as #JimBrown says “Desecrating the flag is not the way to go.” Side Note: Could it be that he has not been signed because he’s just not THAT good in the first place.

Shimmer of Faith & Love


Today there is a shimmer of hope. My mother moved into a Nursing/Rehab facility a few weeks ago and today will be her first day that she will try eating with the other residents in the dining room. I am excited and proud of her.

 

My mother suffers from Dementia, blindness, and osteoarthritis. It is a true struggle for her day to day but I am thankful that she is only ten minutes away from me so I can visit her as often as possible.

But, there is a shimmer of hope and faith in the life we have. So, love your parents and give them the respect and honor that they deserve. They are not perfect, by a long shot, but neither are we as their children.

 

We must remember that there is no rule book to parenting, so there is no right or wrong path. However, if we do the best we can with what we have, God will handle the rest. We must believe this in order to LiveFree & LoveOnPurpose.

Partner to Partner 🤗😉


Partners in time. Partners in crime. Partners in everything isn’t easy to find.

If you can find a partner that compliments your life. Be sure to hold on to them with all of your might.

A partner to me is unwavering loyalty. If this can be provided this partner can have all of me.

Partners must be trusted beyond the 👀 view. Without this trust, there’s not much I can do.

Partners are more than lovers, of course. Partners can come in many different sorts.

Even though partners come in different flavors. It does not change the requirements we favor.

So be kind to all, with all of your heart. Once you find the right partner the two shall never part.

So, on that note, it should be clear to see that with the right partner we can truly LoveOnPurpose and LiveFree


Remember to Live Free and Love On Purpose 💋🎉✌
