I’ve Gone Missing…

It's been a long time since I've written a blog post. What I mean is, I'm not blogging as frequently as I'd like. For me to blog I have to feel inspired, and lately inspiration, passion, and fulfillment have been severely lacking in my life. Do you have anything in your life that you do... Continue Reading →


My Biggest Regret?

"There's some things you can only learn about God through suffering." TD Jakes For the past 5 years I have been wrestling with this question: Should I have moved to Cincinnati? I spent a lot of time categorizing Cincinnati as "my biggest regret" and thinking about how much better my life would be now if... Continue Reading →

Daughters vs. Sons

Are daughters harder to parent than sons? The following conversation recently took place at work: Co-worker #1: (after seeing a girl who looked like she was wearing a really short dress or a really long shirt) What is she wearing?!

I was so thankful when I read this post because the points made in it are such great reminders. Everyone reaches life milestones at different ages and times…and that’s ok! Read this post by Black Royalty Project for some encouragement.

So they say we’re supposed to have it all by 30 right? The husband, the kids, a dog, and a white picket fence. Seems old fashioned, but yes, these are the standards women are measured by.

God forbid you don’t meet you’re knight in shining armor in high school,

get through college together,

have a healthy set of twins,

start your career,

build your dream house,

and live happily ever after.

Oh and the dog. Can’t forget that.

I Have A Special Needs Sister…
