Happy Friday Folk,
I’ve missed you all so much. Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity this week to write. Graduate school has been on 200%. I know that you’ve been expecting a post to celebrate the 100th especially after I made it a goal to have 100 postings before my bloggerversary. Are you excited to mark this year with me? Blogging is an extension of my journey and I’m appreciative of you being here.
I’ve been pondering so many things lately. It appears that life is constantly dealing me some very interesting hands. This post won’t be to complain because you all know that when life gives me lemons, I’m going to make the coldest pitcher of lemonade and share it with you all.
I am writing this post at 2:42 AM so please don’t expect it to be deep. Instead help me make your time here more beautiful, informative, worthwhile, enjoyable and interactive. How can I you more involved when you stop by? I want to connect with you. I’d like to find out if someone is being encouraged, uplifted and blessed by the experiences I share here. That’s the purpose of me being here. The reason for writing. Yes, I love the clothes, makeup, laughs, throwback videos from the 80s, music that makes us want to be booed up if we are single. Those things are a part of what makes me who I am, the person I am able to share with you.
But beyond that are the miracles that have happened in my life; GOD’S divine intervention, prevention and protection that’s sustained me when I didn’t really believe I could go on, that I was capable of raising KT alone (without a mate) and he would turn out fine (he’s doing superrific!) or that I’d be pursing higher education. Those glimpses into my life are what I enjoy sharing more than anything as a testament to the reason I keep a smile, a song and a twirl when I’m wearing a fierce thrifted dress !
As we move into the next phase of this road I must travel, the journey (I am emphasizing the blog title here) I hope you will continue to participate. Please consider giving me feedback, sharing the posts that inspire you with others and asking me questions. If you look in the sidebar you’ll see that I want blogging to give you the real me: a daughter, sister, friend, preacher’s kid, mother, educator, student, natural-haired, fashion and makeup lover perfectly imperfect woman who loves GOD, makes mistakes but will get back up again, dust myself off and get right back in the game of life.
Today it is my prayer that you find more hope, strength, endurance, patience, manifestations of HIS promises being revealed and your weekend brings rest, renewal and a moment to reevaluate where you are headed.
P. S. did this turn out to be a bit deeper than I envisioned?...thought it was just me. Ha ha haa!
In my traveling shoes,
