Happy Father’s Day to all of you wonderful fathers! Wishing you much love, peace and joy on today and every day. You deserve it!
Well, I’m about to get on the road to go spend the day with my daddy. Can’t wait to see his smile. I just love him!
Enjoy your day!
It’s almost 4:00 AM. This time I fell asleep in the recliner. Woke up about an hour ago and can’t go back to sleep. So I guess I’ll write and share one of my Facebook memories.
Two years ago, I was on cloud nine. Life seemed so surreal. Two days before I had written the post below, the judge finalized my divorce. I had waited over four years for that day. I remember being so nervous as I entered the courthouse. I tried not to expect the worse but I did. The night before, I had googled everything that could possibly go wrong. What if my ex changed his mind? What if the judge decided not to grant the divorce? Sooo many what ifs. Y’all, I was a nervous wreck. I remember my lawyer telling the judge that I was really nervous. The judge assured me that I didn’t have anything to be nervous about. That I had waited long enough, she was signing the papers. After it was all over, all I wanted to do was hug my babies. They knew what that day meant. They knew what I had been through because they went through it with me. I always tried to hold it together around them. Never wanted them to see me sad or cry, but they knew. They were my rocks. I’m so grateful they allowed me to love on them over that four year period. The love I gave them they reciprocated, which has continued to this day. Honestly, I have never been loved so unconditionally. They are my blessings.
Y’all, I’m forever grateful I listened to God. Despite how crazy people thought I was for getting the divorce, I listened to God, let go and haven’t looked back. In April of this year, I did the same with my career of 15 years. I left it all behind and haven’t regretted it once. Unlike when I separated from my ex– all nervous and afraid– this time I wasn’t nervous or afraid. I happily let everything go knowing I was following God’s lead and that I was safe in His hands. I guess you could say the divorce and that four year period of only relying on God prepared me for where I am today. Without going through what I went through back then, I would not have been able to make it today. Y’all, I have been jobless since April 1st and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. God assured me He would provide and He has. Grateful.
Okay.. I’ve written enough. Here’s what I shared on June 19, 2019. By the way- Happy Juneteenth!!
Happy Hump Day! Here’s today’s social media find. Take the leap! TAKE THE LEAP!! I guarantee, if God said He’ll catch you, you have NOTHING to be afraid of. Words of caution– it’ll be a bumpy fall. You’ll have some scars. Mostly because you decide to trust yourself and not God. But it’s all good. Those bumps will help you grow and become stronger. Just know, in the end, when God catches you!!!.. Whew!.. You’ll KNOW it was well worth the leap.
Unlike that particular leap, this one hasn’t been bumpy at all. As I said earlier, I believe the first leap prepared me for where I am today. I learned from the first one to trust God, COMPLETELY! Forever grateful and blessed.
As always, thanks for reading my early morning ramblings.
Hmmm… I think I like “Wednesday Writings” better than plain old “Wednesday.” What do y’all think? Guess I’ll try it for the next few Wednesdays and see if it sticks.
So, I’m feeling pretty lazy today, and today I have so much to do. Last week I was sick, like really sick. Had sinus problems on top of a summer cold. I was pretty miserable but could not sit still. I was sick for a few days and I kept moving like I had a million things to do– and didn’t! Now here I am today, feeling all great with so many things to do, and all I want to do is lounge around. Life.
Oh… today is my 7 year Twitterversary for one of my Twitter accounts- my main account- my fun account- my happy account- the one that keeps me smiling account. Yes, I’m smiling. Lol.
A few weeks ago, I celebrated my 8 year Twitterversary on my first account. The day I signed on to officially resign the account was the day of my anniversary. I had no idea. I guess that account had fulfilled its purpose. Hadn’t tweeted from it in years but was holding on to it because it was my first. Decided not to deactivate it because, just like my journals, it holds so many memories. Now I’m down to 3-4 accounts but only two are personal.
Anyhoo… as you can see this was very random. I just felt like writing. By the way, I’ll be 48 in 8 days and I have absolutely no idea what I want to do. I know my kids will make it exciting. They always do! That’s one of the perks of having adult children, you no longer have to plan your own celebrations. Yep… life is good.
Well, let me get up and get going. I’ll rest this weekend. Y’all enjoy your day!
