Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I love holidays…I love getting together with family and loved ones to create memories and have a good time. There is so much to be thankful for this year, I’m blessed and highly favoured indeed. I’m healthy, my son is healthy and even though he can be a handful at times, he’s keeps me going and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m blessed to be surrounded by great friends and family who know and value life as much as I do.

I hope you are with your loved ones this Thanksgiving, I hope that there is no sorrow in your heart and that you are able to focus on all the good that has happened to you. Be thankful everyday, not just today!

Start Now…

I can’t tell you the number of times that this has happened to me. Whether it’s saving for something, losing weight, taking a class or simply mending a relationship. Now that I’m older and wiser, I’ve learned the importance of time, the minutes, days and weeks that go by without a care in the world, the minutes, days and weeks that you wish you would get back.

I choose not to dwell on those minutes, days and weeks, instead, I choose to act on the ones I do have. Making every effort to make every day count so that a year from now I will be glad that I stated today!

I hope you can start something today, it doesn’t have to be big, it just has to be something, anything…have a productive day!

I haven’t been able to post for a while…truth is…I snuck away for a little vacation! I really felt it was time for a little break. Things were getting a little overwhelming and I really wanted to get away before my schedule got busy again with the start of the new school year.

I went to Jamaica, the picture above is of one of the beaches I went to, Frenchman’s Cove, it was one of the best beaches I’ve been to. I highly recommend checking it out if you ever get the chance to go to Jamaica. You can literally see the fishes swimming in the river that they have on the other side. The water is amazing!

I’ll be getting back into the swing of things and publishing more frequently again…there are some exciting things in the pipeline for me and I’m really excited. Stay tuned…

For My Nephew

I love birthdays…my birthday, birthdays of friends and family members…I just love them. I’m the type who will go all out to celebrate someone on their birthday.  I love celebrating them and I love looking back down memory lane to see how far they’ve come.

Today my nephew Lamar celebrates his 15th birthday…Wow, seems like just yesterday I was changing his diapers, giving him a bathe and being up with him all hours of the night because he was sick. My nephew is kind of like my first-born, he was born a little over a year before my son was born. Recently my sis had another baby and I often tease him that he’s no longer my favourite nephew lol. We used to have a running joke where I would tell him that he’s my favourite nephew, his reply would always be “I’m your only nephew…you don’t have a choice!” Well, times have changed and there’s new competition on the block lol…

For anyone that has nieces and nephews, you know there’s that special place in your heart for them, you just want to shower them with so much love.

So, to Lamar…you have an amazing spirit, as you celebrate another year of life, I pray that you are blessed beyond measure. I pray that God grants you wisdom, humility, and so much more. There are no words to describe my love for you and how much you mean to our family. Here’s to many more birthdays that we will celebrate. Happy Birthday…I love you!
