Love Chooses Me

It’s so easy to get lost in the negativity of the world that we can lose sight of what’s right in front of us. I listen to the news or scroll through social media and there’s so much anger and hatred pouring out that I wonder what life will be like for my children when […]

Intubating my Child & COVID

The last few weeks have brought back so many memories. Memories of a time when my newborn was rushed out of a hospital and taken to another to get the care he needed while I was left behind, waiting for 24-hours until the doctor released me. They wheeled him into my room in a little […]

Keep the Baggage, Douche & Douchette

Baggage … we all have a little we carry around with us. We have past experiences that can create a little baggage, it helps mold us and define us – sometimes, for the worst and sometimes, for the better. But I watch the world go on around me, and I sometimes wonder why both women […]

Roaring Women

The world is always changing folks, but sometimes, there are people who do not change with it. It isn’t always a bad thing. I personally think we are entitled to our beliefs, our thoughts and our feelings as long as we are not leaving a wake of damaged souls behind us. I was raised to […]

Straight Up Sucka

Y’all want to know something about me that I’m just kind of accepting about myself? I’m a straight up sucka when it comes to furry little creatures and kids selling random junk. I. Can’t. Say.

Raising Gremlins

Right now, school is out due to the flu running rampant, so the gremlins are at home. I opened my teenager’s door to make sure he was doing his schoolwork for the day, and y’all, I almost died. Breath knocked out of me, fell to the ground and grabbed my chest, kind of died. The […]

Friendships & Aging – Marine Corps Style

As some of you may know, I come from a military family. I spent my life as a child moving from one place to the next every few years. I absolutely hated it at that time in my life. It isn’t easy saying good-bye to friends, then starting all over again. It might be hard […]

Believer

I spent Sunday evening at a venue listening to the bands of the Unstoppable God Tour. As I listened to each band discuss some of their trials and tribulations as they pursued their dreams, it was like God was speaking to me through them. We see athletes, musicians, actors, actresses, etc. when their dreams turned […]

Lonely Estrogen

Y’all, the testosterone in my house runneth over, and I am the lonely estrogen outcast. I feel like I have a gang of gremlins living under my roof that gang up on me. There’s ride by farting near me, which is uncool, and I 100% blame my father for it. We, my angelic self and […]
