I AM….50!

Turning 50 in July, I have realized that my list continues to grow on who I AM or who I have become to be. I can truly say, I AM Grateful.

I wasn’t planning to celebrate my 50th birthday, until one of my girls decided I should.

Travel is always a good way to celebrate a milestone, therefore I chose Los Angeles, California.

Palm Trees, Mountain Breeze, and the food deliciously yummy.

Arriving at LAX, with two of my friends, we chose a nice Air BnB Plus contemporary Spanish style house in mid city Los Angeles. This place was perfect for a girls trip for three. With two bedrooms, full kitchen, front porch and a serene back courtyard, we had all of the amenities we needed.

After we checked into the Air BnB, we decided to get out for a bite to eat. We had a full list of eateries on our itinerary. We had to check out Te’Kila! Omg, I fell in love with their lime wings!

After dinner we walked the boulevard until we ran into a roadblock where they were filming a movie. Yep, this is Hollywood! Lol

It was my bright idea to attend the taping for a talk show, which had us to start our day very early. We were told the traffic is LA was horrible. We were somewhat prepared.

Guess which Talk Show we went to!

This was a long process to attend the taping for this show. We discovered that the people who live in LA actually attend those tapings on a regular basis. I found that to be very interesting. The giveaway was a $200 gift card from Franne Golde, which actually turned out to be a nice gift.

That was Day 1 in LA. Stay tuned for more shenanigans on how I celebrated turning 50 with my friends.


I Raised A Graduate!

Wow! It’s been a long time since I have blogged. May 31st to be exact.

Where was I?

Working, celebrating and planning!

My oldest son graduated from high school and I’m so thankful to my Lord that He allowed us to see this big accomplishment.

I am thankful for everyone who has contributed with their time, prayers, thoughts, and financial blessings. Thank you. I pray that my son will move through life making decisions that will build his success and will help others

What A Blessing!

Last day of school

As we close out the school year, Lord I am grateful for your mercy. With everything going on in our school systems, let the school administrators revisit policies and procedures for the next school year.

  • Bullying
  • School violence
  • School fights
  • The use of cellphones in class
  • Disrespectful students
  • Disrespectful administrators
  • Racism
  • Overcrowded schools

And the list continues to grow. I’m just grateful my sons made it through another year of school. I’m praying for a safe summer time off for everyone.


I was Speechless

All I could do was kick off my shoes and relax my feet and just kick it.

Congratulations Tillman Fertitta

Your team did an excellent job! I am impressed.


Many of us live and never travel. With the responsibility of living life daily, failure is a part of life! We know that life’s choices has consequences, and this is why we travel! To get away from it all and just breathe and relax!

Can you save yourself?

Lately I’ve been seeking God’s will because I want to know what God’s will is for me. Although I have been taught, I wanted to know for myself what the word says and what is true.

I searched scriptures relating to God’s will. He knows the plans he has for you, plans to prosper you, not to harm you and to give you hope and a future. Well, that is promising. We should also give thanks in all circumstances. Not a few, but all circumstances. That’s like saying, Thank you Lord, all day everyday.

He wants us to come to a knowledge of the Truth. What is truth to you?

I Understand

From IAH to SDQ

Trip No. 10

Dominican Republic ~ When I am there I feel free. Flying into the capital (Santo Domingo) and a two hour scenic drive to a Romantic beachfront property in Uvero Alto and then back to the capital… Lord, I’m so in love!

You don’t want me to acknowledge the pain.

You only want me to acknowledge the good again.

I understand

Now that I’ve turned my back to you, I know you’re hurting too, but what are you teaching me?

Not to be blue?

Just as you think of me daily, the consequences of your actions reminds me daily not to let you back in until you can acknowledge the pain I’m in!

What you’ve learned to accept in your culture may not be ok in mine. If you can’t live without me, then you have to confess that what you feel is true.

Which is… You can’t be without me and you don’t want to be blue!

Love with Good Intentions

Love with good intentions.

Even when you doubt that it’s true love, love them anyway.

Love with the intent that they may never love you the same way you love, but don’t take it personally.

Love is a choice and when you are faced with choosing to love someone you will know.

After you’ve loved (with or without boundaries) and you choose to leave that love,

leave knowing that your love did not fail, because you chose to love with good intentions.

Even though we fail in love,

Love never fails us.


What’s Most Important?

Always remember, no matter how bad some things are, they could always be worst and no matter how good things are, there is always room for things to get better. Better is always around the corner.

You are one of the best, because there are so many great things about you, that if you get caught up on focusing on one thing, you might miss what’s most important. ~You. ~ Anonymous
