We Have Come a Long Way: Blessed

profilepic 1

Good morning, friends. I’m up taking care of business this morning, at the car dealer. Lexus never disappoints. 😊 Always outstanding service.

I was talking to two friends of mine on two separate occasions about how absolutely outrageous prices are right now. We were discussing food and housing prices.

One of my friends lives in my hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. Prices there are even crazier than they are here in Texas. Sometimes I get down when my money is short, but God has blessed my family and He will continue to.

If I look at our life 5 years ago, we are in such a better place. We hope to move into our own home by 2025. I’m so blessed to have a 25-year-old son who is on his own and doing well.

Our beginning was hard. My ex-husband left me and my son when he was only 3 years old. We endured being homeless, staying in hotels and so many other things. BUT GOD!

Now, I have a wonderful life, with a wonderful man who loves me and no matter how hard things get from time to time, I. AM. BLESSED.

God Is My Everything!

Daily writing prompt
How important is spirituality in your life?

If you have read my blog more than once, you know how important God is in my life. He is my maker. I would be nowhere without Him.

God is the reason I have peace. I struggled for a long time to feel peaceful. It didn’t come easy. I would stress so hard about every little thing that happened in my life! But God has shown me how to lean on Him and know that He will take care of me!

Dutch Bros Saved Me!

Thank goodness for Dutch Bros!


Hey friends. Not much to update lately. I’ve been running on empty today but I think I know why. I took half of a sleeping pill last night and it always lingers. I try not to take them unless I can spend the next day relaxing.

I ended up having to go get some essentials from the grocery store, so I ended up stopping at Dutch Bros to get a pick-me-up. I ordered a Blended Rebel Shark Attack. It’s so good! It includes a Red Bull, y’all! The flavors are Blue Raspberry, Coconut, and Lime w/Pomegranate.

I have really fallen in love with Dutch Bros these last few months. My all-time favorite drink from them is the Orangesicle Frost. 😳 So good!

Ok. I got off topic! Sorry 😀

But like I said, not much is going on right now. I’m still waiting for the phone to ring in regards to my implants!

My Favorite Quality

What’s your favorite thing about yourself?

My favorite quality about myself is my honesty; WITH MYSELF.

I tell myself the truth…no matter how ugly it may be.

I know my limitations. I know my weaknesses. I know when I’m being lazy and when I’m being selfish.

I know I’m not perfect, but I know I’m honest…with others and especially with myself. That’s the one quality I’m proud of.

So many people walk around thinking they are so “good”.

News Flash: You’re Not.

Be honest with yourself about who you really are.

That’s the only way you can move forward, grow and experience peace. Everyone won’t like you, but so what? As long as you know who you are and you get up every day and try your best, then you’re a success.

Quick Post for Update: Still Sick

Just a quick post to let y’all know I’m still here! (Ha ha) I know I have been away for a few days, but it’s been hard over here. My husband and I caught a bug and it’s been giving me grief! He is pretty much ok but it’s still lingering with me….at night!

For the past week, I have been sleeping on the couch because for some reason, as soon as I go upstairs and try to lay in the bed, my nose clogs up. I’ve dusted up there and cleaned the ceiling fan and still a no go. When I go downstairs to the couch, it’s a little better…enough for me to get a few hours. Downstairs is where the vaporizer is, so tonight, I’m bringing that upstairs to see if it will work there.

The reason I didn’t do that sooner is because it gets so hot with the vaporizer on! I didn’t want Hubby to be miserable all night just for me. He’s the one who has to get a good night’s sleep for work. It’s weird because during the day my nose doesn’t stop up at all…. only at night.

All I know is that I’m sick of it. I miss sleeping with my husband and I’m tired of being sleepy all-day cause of no sleep at night. Bear with me y’all.

PS. I’m still waiting for the call that my teeth are ready! Can’t wait to be able to smile again!

Sick and Tired!

Well, my household has spent the last few days sick. It went from me to my husband and back to me. My plan is to stay medicated all weekend so that this is the end of it. The fact that I may have gotten the bug from the gym is kind of disheartening. There is no way I can wear a mask and work out. Not gonna happen.

So, for now I will have to find a way to get my steps in at home. I’m starting a gardening project though. I have many ideas for our backyard, but I’m not sure how to begin. My first step will be to clean out the flower bed and the space next to the walkway. I’m going to try some homemade weedkiller first and if that doesn’t work, then I will venture out to buy some.

Other than that, not much is going on…. just long nights not feeling well. I plan on being back to my old self by Monday though!
