A Message From Heaven

Yesterday I made my what seems to be monthly trip to church.  Since I usually get about three hours of sleep a night, Sunday mornings are usually when I try to catch up on rest and take it easy during the afternoon watching football.  It was Men’s Day, and after I heard that Jeremiah Wright […]

A Birthday Earned

We make big deals of birthdays.  We should.  Tomorrow isn’t promised and the beginning of a new year is a reason to celebrate.  The last three October 7th’s have been something else for my mother.  In 2011, she was just diagnosed with cancer.  In 2012, she had undergone surgery, chemo, radiation, and was celebrating overcoming […]

What Mother?

A few days ago, Cydney woke up and we were going through what was our normal routine.  I looked at her, rubber her on her head and said “You look like your mother right now!”  She responded “What mother?” Man!  My heart dropped for a moment when she said that.  Not in a completely sad […]

Its been a tough week. Been playing catch up physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally the last few days and usually along with that comes writer’s block. Also, my mornings have been about filling out applications in my effort to once again go corporate so the time I would write I’ve been working or just sitting […]

An Update On My Mom

Thank everyone for their prayers, well wishes, phone calls, and various ways of showing support. My mother is as okay as she can be given the circumstances. I went to go see her the day after her surgery. She was out of it a little (and rightfully so) but was still making little jokes here […]
