After experiencing tragedies, it’s so hard to remain hopeful. Yet we have to or the enemy wins. 🙏🏽❤️ ~ Shaun
If you are not careful, distractions will steal, kill and destroy God’s purpose for your life. Block the noise and stay focused. Your purpose is too great!♥️ ~ Shaun
In exactly one month from today, I will be 49 years old. As I think back over my life, I cannot think of a time where I actually believed I achieved things on my own. I have always known that everything I am and everything I have is owed to God. I also know that all blessings and accomplishments yet to come will be due to Him. Y’all, I’m so grateful for His love.🙏🏽♥️ ~ Shaun
Treasure the memories and moments that make you smile. They’re priceless.♥️ ~ Shaun
Yesterday, was my son’s big day! Today, he begins a new chapter of life. As with my daughter, I’m excited to see where this next chapter leads him, and ready to help him maneuver through his next few years of college.
Yesterday morning KeShawn surprised us with news that he had chosen a college. He applied to and was accepted at both Mississippi State University and The University of Southern Mississippi; and, for almost a year now, he’s been undecided. Which means we’ve done everything for both colleges – set up student accounts, applied for housing, scheduled orientations, etc. Then, yesterday morning my dad asked him what college he planned to go to and he said……. The University of Southern Miss. Y’all, I screamed! You see, Southern Miss is my alma mater. I really thought he was going to choose Mississippi State. I was prepared for it. Had even bought myself a t-shirt to wear to yesterday’s graduation luncheon. However, once he said Southern Miss, I went rummaging through drawers trying to find something yellow (gold) to wear since all of my Southern Miss t-shirts were faded. I ended up finding two yellow shirts that I had never worn and they both fit perfectly. Yes.. yesterday was a pretty awesome day for us both!
By the way, I didn’t cry. I was too wired and happy to cry. I just wanted him to have the best, most memorable day ever, and I believe he did.
Now on to bigger and better things.
Always give thanks. Gratitude goes such a long ways. ~ Shaun
