3 Reasons It's Good to Join Social Media Groups

Strangers can be best friends, just as easy as best friends and family can become strangers. ~ Anonymous

We all would love supportive family and friends. But, let’s face it, we all are not privileged to have them. (The Hate is Real!) For a long time I couldn’t understand that because I’m a big supporter of others, be it family, friends, and/or strangers. I don’t always receive the same level of support I give. While, I don’t let that stop my shine, I felt it to be disappointing. It did teach me that, everybody will not celebrate with you at every stage or at any stage in your life. It has nothing to do with you. When I truly grasped and understood that concept, I was able to dismiss it and keep it moving. And, have been moving ever since. (Ha!)

Faith That Is Not Tried is Really Not Faith at All ~ Anonymous


Have you ever had the feeling you are being tested and tried in your faith?

The feeling of, “if there is not one thing it is another?”

Fun Times with Family


Fun, Laughter, Laugh, Family, Friends, Generations, Life,

We didn’t realize we were making MEMORIES we just knew we were having fun. Anonymous

It is always good to spend quality time with family. This past Saturday, I did just that. Spent quality time with family and friends. And, boy did I enjoy myself. My family is big on supporting each other, so family from Houston, Texas and Natchitoches, LA came in to enjoy the festivities. The laughs and reminiscing of old times, was one to be remembered. I love to hear stories from back in the days. Those are priceless stories carried down from generation to generation.

If one more person tells me stress is causing my migraines I will scream… Anonymous

Since, last Tuesday, I’ve been dealing with excruciating migraines. When the pain first hit, I thought it was just my basic headache, something that a Stanback, or BC powder and coke could fix. It became apparent when my headache didn’t go away within a couple of hours that this was not an ordinary headache.

Good relationships just don’t happen. They take time, patience, and two people who truly want to be together. ~ Anonymous. 

With so much going on in my life, it is important for me to find a balance in everything. One of the areas I decided to start with was my relationship. I wanted to carve out some quality time with the Mr. This has been a struggle for us lately. Therefore, we had to be intentional and set aside a day and time that we could go out on a date. No distractions!
