Granddaughters Drawing

I was so surprised to receive a text of my granddaughter Ebony's drawing this morning.  Her father sent it to me.  Such gifted talent, and I am so very proud of her.  She did a wonderful job here!  It's no secret to me that I am truly blessed to have children and grandchildren with remarkable talents. 

A Grandmother's Love Is A Special Thing!

This Is My Crew!

Being a mother and grandmother is one of the most exciting experiences in my life.  Somethings in my life I would change if it were possible, but this journey of motherhood wouldn't be one of them.  Mainly, this is what keeps me going, my children. 

Boy How Time Flies!

One of my favorite places is the ocean.  I always love to go and sit on the sandy beach and watch the waves come in and go out.  It's so relaxing and rejuvenating.  I feel like I am free from all of life concerns when I am there.  It just takes my breathe away in a good way!  Hi everyone who reads this post.  I know it has been a long time since I have been doing some writing on my blog.  I have been just so bombarded with so much of life. Decision making, moves, helping with the children, grand kids and I even started a business.  However, life goes on and I am back to do some more posting on my blog.  Oh yes, I even went on a vacation for the first time to the Bahamas which I will do a post on that next.  Trying to catch up because time flies as they say.  Well, looking forward to writing again and sharing with all of you.

Thanks and take some time out for self...

I am so very proud of my daughter Jessica because of her ambition, determination and strength.  She has become such a beautiful young woman who has grown so much in appreciating what life is and has to offer those who choose to follow.  Life is what we make it and Jessica is reaching for the stars and the sky is the limit.  She has really proven that "With God All Things Are Possible for Those Who Believe."  Believe in God, believe in yourself and stop at nothing to reach your goals in life!  This is one of my blessings from God, she is one of my angels and I am blessed to have many.  Congratulations My Babygirl!

Life Is A Wonderful Thing!

It's a beautiful thing to wake up in the morning to witness a brand new day.  Let us be thankful for the air that we breathe, and all that we have been blessed with today.  This is a day in which we all have the opportunity to express love, peace and joy.  To look back just to be thankful for where we are and what we have endured.  Let us be grateful for all of our blessings both great and small.  Everyday, I humbly thank God for my children, grandchildren and for all to come.  Life is one of the greatest gifts that we have to be thankful for.

Always Appreciating My Blessings!

I went to visit some of my grandchildren and family in Virginia Beach, Va.  And, my granddaughter Heaven was performing at the Sandler Performing Center.  It was so wonderful watching her perform and being blessed to be there.  Love those grands!!!

A Mothers Love

It took 9 months to bring you into this world.  Through this time, I carried you inside me, nourished you and cared for you.  A time of morning sickness, weight gain, Doctors appointments and birth preparations.  I brought you into this world, natural childbirth it was.  And boy, it wasn't an easy task!  I looked at you for the very first time and said once again "I am proud to be a mother", I was very happy.  I took care of you from that point, my love was unconditional.  Tried to breast feed you, but you weren't in the least interested.

I protected you, watched you grow, your first step, potty training, your first word and even then, they were never mistakes but learning experiences even for me.

An embrace, a soft spoken word, a hug, a kiss and  thoughts penetrating the heart in heavenly love.  Your first year and years after, I watched you become this wonderful person.  First day of school, me standing at the door not wanting to separate from you.  Smart, witty, bright, funny sometimes but serious too.  Great grades as the years so easily stroll by honor roll .  Where did the time go?  Smiling, joking around with friends and your siblings.  

I prayed for you always, guided you and yes, protected you.  Was I perfect, some might say no, I say yes because I did the best that I knew how to do.  The sad times, tears streaming down faces of those who care.  Your tears of hurt and pain not even words can comfort sometimes.  God speaking saying "let not your heart be troubled."  God always fixes the problems.  

Times of rebellious remarks and not following my rules made me wonder what did I do wrong!  Moments of silence, inner prayers, sleepless hours sitting up waiting to hear a word.  Prayers for protection and safety go up.  Was I a perfect mother,  I questioned?  Were you a perfect child?  Absolutely not!  We make mistakes and learn from them.  When you do the very best that you can, that is all that you can do.   Is there room for improvements, yes.  Becoming perfect is a goal that we all should try to reach.  However, we are perfected through the unconditional love that we share.  We will never stop learning how to be perfect mothers and grandparents.  Life will never not providing us with challenges and issues to keep us on our toes.  

  If you have done your very best, never think that
you didn't do enough!
