Just the beginning...

I've been so busy and haven't had a chance to blog the way I want to. SO MUCH is happening in my life right now and it's just the beginning...

I promise to catch up soon. Until then...Continue to be blessed!

So proud of P...

So today was the last day of my water aerobics class. I'm registering for the next session that starts next week. Back to back. No break! Who would have thought that I would stick it out this long. I even doubted myself, but each week I looked forward to the workout. Each week I have grown stronger. I grumble every Monday and Wednesday as I walk into the rec center, but by the time I get in that water and start moving around...all of that fades and the time flies by.

Today, she worked the heck out of us. I pushed extra hard though. My instructor who has been so hard on me these past 2 months said, "You've come a long way." She smiled with such pride. As I sit here now thinking about it, she is so right. I have come a LONG way....and I have an even longer way to go.

Looking forward to this next chapter of my life. With every page that I turn, I get more and more excited.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Sending well wishes to all the true lovers in the world who don't care what day it is because everyday is Valentine's Day. May you continue to be blessed in your relationship. I wish you more laughter than tears. More joy than pain. More fun than fights. And above all...more love than your heart can hold. When that love spills over make sure that you spread it around to someone else who really needs a little in their life to pull them from the edge.

Today, I'm sharing my cup of love with the singles in the world who woke up dreading today. First be grateful for that breath you took this morning. Then shake that ish off. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. That's better than any candy or flowers you could get. I guarantee when Real Love finally comes you won't care what day it is just like those true lovers ;o)

Have a good day on purpose!

R.I.P. Whitney Houston

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post. When I heard that Whitney Houston had died, I hoped that it was a vicious rumor. She is the true definition of Legendary. I grew up with her music. I've cried to her songs; danced to her songs; and had a praise party to her songs. She has given us the gift of her voice for years and years and to say that she will be missed is simply an understatement.

Unfortunately, she has had a roller coaster of a life. The lesson to be learned here is that we must make better choices for ourselves. Healthy choices. It's not easy, but it's for our own good. In that interview she had a long time ago, most people remember her saying, "Crack is whack," but I remember her saying that the biggest devil is her. "I'm either my best freind or my worst enemy." I remember thinking how true that statement is. It is with tears that I can honestly say that I am my very own best friend.

I pray for Whitney's family, especially her daughter. That they try to find peace rather than understanding.

Such a tragic loss.

Here is my all time favorite song by the late, great Whitney Houston. It's my "I'm all that and even more than I even give myself credit for song." The freaky part is that she performed this at the Grammy's, which take place this evening.

May her soul FINALLY rest in eternal peace.

I so can't wait to meet him!!

India is one of my favorite artists. And it's one of those days, so I have her playing in the background while I tackle this pile of work on my desk. I have always loved this song. Heard it millions of times, but today feels like the first time. Her voice and the instrumentals have always lulled me with this tune, but today its the words that moved me. The man that she describes in this song sounds amazing. I'm tickled with hope....

The part about me playing him songs all through the night and him listening to every line and him choosing his words wisely when he knows good and daggone well I am wrong...Oh yes!!!

I so can't wait to meet him!!
