Mother's Day 2013

I love Mother's Day. Not for the commercialization of it, but because its a day that gets us mom's to slow down and think about just how awesome we really are.

This year, my Munchkin came in my room and told me he had hidden a card somewhere in my room and I'd have to find it. He's such a little prankster and brat. Making me search for my Mother's Day card. He then told me I was the best Mommy in the world and he'd always have my back.

Which really meant jumping on my back so I could take him downstairs to eat.
Shortly after my wishes from my Munchkin, I received a text from h.i.m. saying "Good morning. Happy Mother's Day". I responded with a thank you. I didn't realize I had something waiting for me downstairs. He mentioned that I should have received something. I ran down stairs to find this beautiful bouquet. It touched me so deeply because of his thoughtfulness. It is nice to have someone in your life who honors what I view as my most sacred be my son's mother.

We went to church, and then out to eat afterwards.  I really am just so grateful for this life.

My  nephew Caden, my son, and me.  The boys are 7 months apart. Yes, Munchkin wore his cowboy boots on the wrong foot the entire day.  Wouldn't be an appropriate Mother's Day if I had recognized that.
My beautiful sister, mom, and I. I had long kicked off my heels.  They killed.

I never allow a Mother's Day go by without remembering my sister friends who desire to be mothers.  Those who are in waiting, those who have fertility issues at this moment, those who have miscarriaged.  All day long I thought about Sarah's promise and how God hears each of your prayers, and I believe He hears my prayers for you.  Love.
My gift. Days after coming home from the hospital June 2008,

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…

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…

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…
