The Things I'm Most Grateful For

I am trying to start something where I post the 5 things I'm most grateful for each day on Twitter before I go to bed. The idea came to me one day when listening to Oprah Radio in the car as she interviewed the author of Simple Abundance (better known as the little pink book). I haven't actually read the book, but in that interview I picked up on the main principle - and it was pretty simple - give thanks. Every day, give thanks. Even if it is for the seemingly small things like going through the day without crying, give thanks for that. I thought - how profound. How wonderful it would be to create an atmosphere of gratitude every single day. I usually catch up on my timeline while laying in bed at night - so how about I use that time to share some good with the world. I'll carry that idea here as well, and on Saturdays I'll post the 5 things from the week I am most grateful for! Now I'm all excited!

This week I am grateful for:1. A return to sanity and a routine schedule. The last 10 months I sacrificed being able to pick up my son from school, cooking dinner, going to the park. This week that was restored.2. Clients who are understanding - even when I haven't been at my best for them.3. The people God brought into my life through The CommunityChange Group.4. The super major announcement that came from Scentsy this week!5. Getting the opportunity to spend some time with my sisters of AKA.

How could you not be grateful for more time with him? This week at PreK-3 wiped him out.

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

Colin Kaepernick is bae

I really don't need to say anymore.  
I've been saying people with a platform need to take a stand. I didn't want any Black athletes to travel to Rio for the olympics to represent the USA. I realize that is a big thing to ask. That is the dichotomy of being Black in America.  Black athletes representing a country and winning gold medals in the name of a country who doesn't fully see us. 
So Kaepernick gets all my love for taking a stand by taking his seat.  Personal protests have always been the catalyst for greater awareness and action. 
Let me tell you a quick story. This summer at our Scentsy convention, Orville gave a moving and authentic speech that touched on the current times. I could see how he genuinely felt about what he was saying. There was a moment where this quote by a Scentsy consultant's husband was placed on the screen. I realized when he said "he's Black", everyone remained seated, but when he said "and he's a cop" eve…
