    Sept 13, 2002

    14 years ago today marks one of my greatest feats of my life. Not only did I give birth to my amazing son, but I succeeded in something I had worked hard and trained for, natural labor itself. Yes, I  know every woman does it, and yes I know thousands and thousands of babies are…

    I should never have hired you. You have too many children.

    Happy Independence day to me! Feb 19th, 2016 marks the two year anniversary that I quit my job against a tyrant boss who I’ll just say is one of those people we all need to pray for. (I’ll keep the negative vibes off of my computer) I literally felt as if I sold my soul…

    Random Acts of Kindness.

    Well, today is National Random Act of Kindness Day. Initially, I would say that all these national days are pretty lame!

    What this mom learned from the millionaires.

    After spending the day yesterday at motivational workshops lead by the country’s millionaires, a couple questions have come to mind.

    Quotes for Mom’s to live by!

    I think I have officially “liked” every inspirational page on Facebook. My feed is full of them all day, and I love it! It is moment-to-moment inspiration and reminders of the person I am striving to be. Key word “striving”; as it is also a moment-to-moment struggle for me. I am usually always stressed out,…

    No more driving Ms. Daisy!!

    Yes, that is correct! That is me in the photo, SUPER excited and at a bus station. As you can see, the kids do not share my enthusiasm as much, except maybe for the little one, as she prepared for our excursion with her coloring books and crayons and thought it was just as exciting…
