Howdy Partner!

Where have you been? Some may ask.....

Well, I been working 3rd shift again and I know I posted before, that I will never work another 3rd shift again, but brown sistah needed some cash...LOL

I'm still at the same Company, which is Bank of America as a Processing Clerk again, I don't understand why they laid us off in the first place, just to call us back 2months later!

Christmas is slowly approaching, or should I say...It's approaching fast!
I haven't done any shopping and really I don't plan on doing a lot of shopping, because that's not what Christmas is about, I'm not about to be out there spending all my money or the little money that I have.

Look out 2010 is around the corner, Do anybody have any goals or plans for the new year?
My Goals are for 2010 will consist of me...

1. Releasing some weight and start eating alot more healthier. I need to get rid of alot of weight, I will not tell you how much, but it's more then 30lbs!

2. Fitness, Along with eating healthier and releasing weight, I have to include fitness.
I have a treadmill, so I'm going to work out at least 4-5 times a week for 30-45mins. I'm also interested in starting some kickboxing class and swimming.

3. My family and I will be relocating to a new city in March or April and we all pretty excited about that and actually I'm in the process of planing that now. Hopefully, the job I'm with now can transfer me, since they have a Company there also. My goal is to be moved by June 2010!

4. I will be starting college in 2010, I haven't really decided what school yet, but It's between two schools and they both are located in the new city, in which I will be relocating to. My goal is to choose the school and enroll for Summer or Fall 2010

5. My Book, yes I have a couple of books in my head, but I can only do one at a time and for now, I will start with The Book for African American Families. My goal is to have half of the book written by July 2010!

I can go on with the goals and plans that I have for 2010, but I have to start with what I have written above, but I forgot to mention, that my number one goal should have been, my number 2 goal, because My #1 goal is to continue working on building my relationship with God, that is like before EVERYTHING!

I will continue to attend church regularly. Prayer, I will continue and forever will be praying daily, but more than once a day or only when I need him/her, I will be more active in my conversation or prayer with God, I will included him in everything, I mean everything, because it's not about me, it's about him and what he wants for me.

Daily Bible read, I was reading a book and it's called The Purpose Driven and the author says that, if you spend at least 15mins a day, reading the Bible, you would have read the entire bible in a year. So, I have 15mins a day and really more time than that to read the bible, but I don't.
I can say that I spend about 15mins reading the Bible about 3-4 times a week, so I have to make it a priority to read it at least 15-20mins on a day to day basis.

Do anybody have any more idea's I can use to work on building a more loving relationship with our God? Please share it with me.

Well, that's it for now folks, but I promise to do better with my posting.

I basically be on facebook alot, so if anybody interested in being my friend, please leave a comment and I will get back with you!


Peace~Love~Happiness

What a Sunday?

My Sunday started out with me waking up at 8AM, I normally wake up or I set my clock to 7AM, but it didn't happen this morning, but that was ok, everyone was still asleep (thank God) I have to get up early, before everyone so I can spend time alone with God.

I say my prayers, I read 4 verses in my bible, sometimes I write in my journal or I'm writing a Dear God letter. I'm also reading The Purpose Driven book which is very good, sometimes I don't get a chance to do the journal writing because my children wake up.

I iron my clothes and my children clothes for church, they ate breakfast and we were out the door. I didn't eat because I'm on a week fast, from 6am-6pm, I might stretch it, I really don't no, but looking at my situation, I need to fast for 6months...LOL

Church service was over at 2:15pm, which ran over 1 hour and 15mins, which was fine with me, because I love my Paster and I love being in church.

I'm still working on my husband going, but he says he's not ready,ummm ok, I'm just going to keep praying for him and I'm guessing one day he will show up. My mother also, she makes so many excuses not to attend church, either she didn't have nothing to wear or don't feel good and when she throws that one in, I come home from church and she be up cussing people out.

I'm not making excuses, I'm going and my children are going also, I been slacking on my teen, he haven't been either, but I told him today, you going next Sunday, rather you like it or not.

I got home from church and I cooked, I fried some good ole chicken, I made green beans, and some garlic & herb potatoes. There were some lefted over biscuits from breakfast this morning and I heated them up and served them as well.

My husband full and so are my children and I must say...I am also!
You know what happens when we get full, you got it!

We get sleepy, but I didn't fall asleep, I cleaned my bedroom, put on some good ole clean sheets for my bed as well as my children, helped my 3rd grader with some home-work and I listen to him read.

At last..I got them ready for their bath, we added bubble bath and tons of toys!
I allowed then to find the under wear of their choice and also their pajamas and they was all set, now in my head they should be sleepy.....NOT!

It was 8:15pm when they got out of the bath tub and they asked or begged me to let them stay up for a little while longer, so I allowed them to stay up until 9pm, in which it's around that time now as I type this and guess what...


My 4yr old is sitting in the same chair with me, he always likes to sit wherever I'm sitting, mama spoil baby...lol....
And he fail asleep, he don't like to fall asleep alone, he always has to be by his mama. My 8yr old don't care, he's mama big baby, he don't need me to fall asleep, because he knows he's to big anyway and this little one (the 4yr old) just don't know he is about to start being a big boy also.

That's something I have to break him from, he's getting a older and he's old enough to be able to sleep without me near him.

I'm restless now and seeking some peaceful time, I'm on my way to take a hot and relaxing bubble bath myself, so I will talk 2 ya later!

Until next time,
Peace, Love, & Happiness!

I really got nothing...

But thoughts.....

It's starting to get cold here in Chicago, we been waking up to 34 degree weather, that sucks!!!!
*************************************************************************************
I Love this Black sitcom called Lincoln Heights, it's a very nice show, I truly love it, I believe it's aired on The Family channel with Comcast, I ask that you please support the show. I seen some of the cast members on The Monique Show last week and the young lady tells Monique that she was the first to ever interview them about the show, that's a shame, being that the show is going on it's 5th season.
**************************************************************************************
It's been a lot of killing going on in Chicago, a couple in my neighborhood, it's starting to scare my oldest son and sister, I never thought I would hear them say....What is going on in Chicago?
It's been close, like this young fella, that liked my sister, we called him LiL Wayne, because he looked just like him, he enjoyed my sister, she never liked him, but they were friends and about 2 weeks ago, someone came up to him and shot him in the face twice and killed him. That was scary to her, she said she was talking to him earlier that day on her way going to work.
***********************************************************************************
My step daughter, I love her to life, her and her husband gave us a car, it was very nice of them, it's a old car, it's a 1992 Pontiac and it's blue, with a nice radio, it needs some minor work, which my husband could do:-) I'm very grateful, because we did not have a car, funny thing, I asked my husband, I said...Do you think we can drive this car to Atlanta? and he said......NOPE!
(Laugh out loud), so we're either going to have to get it fixed or eight trade it for another car, in which I'm down with trading it, when I get my taxes. It needs some plugs or something, I don't know mechanic talk, he understands what it needs, I'm simply clueless.
************************************************************************************
I love that my 4yr old is sitting here eating up all the strawberries, I was making strawberry short cake for them:-)
*************************************************************************************
My mother decided, that she wants to relocate with me next year, I don't know about her, I don't think she even know, she changes her mind all the time, I will see!
*************************************************************************************
How about The Monique Show? Tell me what yall think about that, I like it myself, I will keep supporting the show, but it's just one thing....She has to stop doing all that damn yelling!
*************************************************************************************
There's a program here in Chicago, that will give you up to $5,000 for school and at the same time, they will help you find a job, I signed up for it! They have a variety of classes, you can take and I was thinking about doing something in the medical business, they asked us to research the job market to see what job is high in demand, at this point in time. They purpose is to help people find a job and place them into a job in the career field that they choose. So we need to choose a job that is in demand, I can understand that, because that's what I want and that's what the others want as well.
*************************************************************************************
The holidays are quickly arriving. Are you doing any early shopping?
I want to start early,but just like last Christmas, the presents were light and it's going to be light this year. My children only!!!
*************************************************************************************

Ok, I can't think of anything else at the moment to talk about, so I'm signing off!

Until Next Time,

Peace & Blessings!

My Oldest...


Son has an job interview at Sears today!!!!!! I'm so excited for him, he's excited as well!

They called him around 10AM and gave him a interview time for 4PM today, he was ready by 12noon....LOL

I gave him a practice interview, he had on the correct interview clothing, around 4PM we lefted the house, I borrowed my grandmother van and we were on our way!

Before, he got on the elevator to meet the interviewer, I had to look him over again and he had on earrings , similar to the ones he have on in this picture and I told him to take them off.

Let me tell yall, his interviewer was a woman, my son went into the human resource office and he had 2 people before him and the lady had to have them in her office for about 2mins each.

My 4yr old I were glancing around the store, we were in the little boys department and I was working my way to the lingerie department and here comes my son, I looked at him and he said...She only asked me 3 questions it was...

1. How much do you expect to get paid?

2. How many hours do you expect to work?

3.Why do you want to work for Sears?

And that was it, I'm like, shit this woman is going to give me some damn gas money, she could have asked this shit over the phone...LOL

But, that's what I was thinking to myself, but she did tell my son, that they would get back with him next week.

I was also thinking, Why my interviews never go that fast?

Pray for my child, he really wants a job and his mother (me) really wants him to have one as well:-)

I'mma get back with yall later and I'mma let you peeps know if my son got the job.

Until Next Time,
Live life to the fullest!

Peace,

2-2-2

So, My temporary assignment has ended Monday morning, because I was working 3rd shift and I'm kinda glad because I use to get soooo sleepy working that 3rd shift, I use to get so sick, to when I be came extremely sleepy, to the point to were it felt like I was going to vomit, my stomach use to hurt really bad, that was really strange to me. I told my recruiter no more 3rd shift for me, but if it pays right, I may consider it...LOL

When you have no funds coming in and you have a family you have to take care of, yes I will consider it. Especially in my situation that my family and I are in, man I will take anything:-)

I guess you are wondering about the 2-2-2 and I need to play that in the lottery..LOL

Well, as I posted on here before, my family and I we share an apartment with my mom, it was never permanent only temporary. We never set a date or a time frame on when we will move apart, but I did say once I get a permanent job and my husband get a permanent job, either or, we will move. The job situation been kind of challenging, I have been finding temp. jobs, but at this moment I need to clarify to my job recruiter to look out for me something permanent.

Just about every job we see for my husband or even myself at times, you need a car, because it's in the far suburbs and we don't have a car. My step daughter is considering giving us a car, but haven't heard anything back yet, I believe the car is getting repaired.

But anyway, so we are living all together and my mother, being the true Gemini that she is, gets in her depressed moods and like every 2-3 months decides she's ready to move away into her own, like I'm not ready to move away from her, it's just that it's been hard trying to find a stable job and that's whats keeping us staying together, I'm ready to move, my family and I need our own place and space for that matter, we are living ok here at the moment, we're not really uncomfortable, we are not stacked up on top of each other like sardines, we have 31/2 bedrooms, my childrens room, is inside my bedroom, so they have they own bed.

Our plan was for us to stay together, until I or either my husband or the both of us find a permanent job, then we will (hubby & I) keep the place we are in right now and my mother move out into her own place, like a 2bedrm for her and her adopted son.

But, every time she gets in a (I don't no what to call it) I will call it strange mood, she have a change of plans, it's like every 2-3 months she tells me, she's moving or going to move, what I'm angry at is, she never sticks to our plan, I understand she wants to move out into her own and it's only far, but my family and I are not stable to move, we have no money, no job to move and I understand that she is entitle to move and we are grown and we are not her responsibility, but if she's going to move, move and stop talking about it, I guess I'm upset about her switching personalities, one day she wants to move and then the other day she goes and say things like, I wouldn't leave my grand children. She needs to Stop flip flopping!

I hope yall can understand what I'm trying to say, because, I'm kind of confuse on her motives, since we been living in this apt, which it's only been 1yr and let me say this about my mother, she have a history on moving, she gets bored and just pack her stuff and move, like she is rich, my grandmother says she is unstable and really she is, I'm just so upset by her, she will find some minor things wrong with an apartment and get mad and be ready to move and my husband tells her that, she will never find a perfect place, not even if she buys her a home, something will break down, so I guess now this is one of her bored moments, but she don't understand the effect she puts on us.

It's always a time, either I'm working or my husband is not or either, he's working and I'm not, either way, who ever is working, we pay half of the bills and our half of the rent and pay the majority of the food and at this moment neither one of us are working yet.

So I don't understand why she decides now, she wants to move again and right now, she packed up half of her stuff and she don't have a dime saved to move, our lease is not over yet, she's walking around here talking about what I can have of hers and I just look at her and me, being the person, I can be at times, I just give her one of these looks like...are you kidding me and she will walk away, she told me the other day that I can have all her dishes, I was on the computer and I turned around and I told her... you are really getting besides yourself, you need to keep your own dishes, you only get a Social Security check, you are not rich, beside I have dishes still packed of my own in the garage, I don't want your dishes.

I think she is crazy and I do understand that she is my mother, but shit the truth is the truth and I'm sorry, but what I'm going to do is pray for her, because I understand her wanting her own place, because I really want my own also, but we keep telling her, the way the government is working, they can easily cut her check and she will not be able to take care herself or a place of her own and really right now, she's not really able to live comfortably, a 2bedrm apt. here in Chicago is 700.00 and up and some don't come with utilities and she only receives 1000.00 a month, but she wants to do it on her own and she is my mother, I can't stop her, but what I do know is, when my family and I move into our own, she will never be able to move with me, I'm sorry but she can't, call me mean, but I haven't even begin to tell yall the things she does, that we have to put up with, I'm all about positivity and she's not, I don't like to gossip, she does, I like helping and feeding family, she doesn't and that's to name a few things, so I wish her well.

So, as of right now, my husband and I are quickly looking for a job, like we always have been and our lease is up in a month and she wants to be moved by the end of our lease, which puts us in a jacked-up position, jobs are not rolling in the way it use to be, but I will continue to pray and trust and believe in God, I'mma just roll with the flow, I told my husband he have to work hard for his family, he have to take care of us, we don't have time to be playing this is serious and even if she decides to change her mind again, I'm still leaving, because I can't deal with the flip flop, even if I have to take my kids and go to a Shelter, I'm leaving and I'm serious.


Back to the 2-2-2, the other day, I told my hubby, that we need 2 jobs (One for him and one for me) We need 2,000 bucks to move into us an apartment and have a little something extra and last but not least a 2 Bedroom apt.

Our goal is to have this by Nov 1, 2009, Do you think we can achieve this goal?

Through God, all things are possible!

I need yall to pray for us, I'm expecting a break through and not a break down!

God is so good and what ever happens, God is still Good and I will continue to praise and worship him.

I'm getting sleepy now, so until next time...

Peace & Love,

Words Can Heal

I am a big fan of Jewel Diamond Taylor, I have her book Success Gem and it is a wonderful book.

Whenever you get a chance, go and purchase her book, I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

On page 72 in Jewel book, she says using these words and phrases can increase your chances for success and happiness:

I am special...
I am unique...
I feel good about myself...
I work on improving myself...
I keep my commitments...
I am beautiful...
I radiate confidence...
I have a purpose...
I am significant and needed...
I am healthy...
I am loved...
I am responsible...
I am strong...
My challenges are my teachers...
I'm willing to learn...
I trust my inner voice...
I'm always in the right place at the right time...
I can solve my challenges...
I believe in my skills and talents...
I can get the job done...
I expect great things to happen...
I am qualified...
I am worthy...
I accept myself the way I am...

Positive words affect your health, reduce stress and create peace of mind.
You can attract or repel healthy relationships and opportunities, according to your words.
Life is a mirror. You attract into your life what you radiate, think, say, give and love.

Your positive inlook will shape your outlook in life. If you are optimistic and understanding the power of your spoken word, your chances for success and solutions are more likely than for the person who speaks negativity.

You can start today, speaking these healing words into your life and trust me it will change your life, when ever a negative thought come to your mind, quickly change them and feed them with words that heal.

Please share these healing words to your family and friends, I think everyone needs them and really would benefit from them.

You can start with at least one of these healing word at a time or ever 2-3, it doesn't matter, just do it, even if it's not these words and you have your own, it doesn't matter, just repeat these words to yourself daily and watch your life change.

Let me know...

Talk 2 ya soon!

Random thoughts...

Ok, so I been MIA for awhile, Let me tell you, working this 3rd shift got my energy down and although I been working this shift for about 6 weeks, I still can't get use to working these hours, I just can't. I heard that the temps for this assignment is over Sept. 18 and to tell you the truth I'm happy, but also sad, sad because I will miss the money, but happy because I don't like the hours.

I finally got me a cell phone it's really cute, I love the color, it's a cranberry color and actually it's my cousin favorite color, but now it's becoming my favorite color, I'm thinking about using this color for my bedroom, once I move into my own home.

I'm excited about my decision to relocate, I heard a lady at my job say last night, if you can make it in Chicago, you can make it anywhere and I believe that, but also if you believe in God and also have faith in him, you can also make it anywhere and that's my truth.

Since working this 3rd shift job, I have been missing church and I don't like that, when I get off at 8AM, the only thing, I'm thinking about is sleep, because I be so sleepy at work, I just want to go home and lay in my bed and fall asleep. Sometimes while I'm at work, I have to stand up and work or I would have to go into the restroom and put water on my face and while I'm in there, there are other ladies in there as well, doing the same thing...LOL and we all just look at each other and say....I'm sooooo sleepy!

I graduated from school on August 13 and I'm really excited about that, yes I'm really excited about that, but I still have to go back and take my test in Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook to get certified and once I'm done with that, I'm going to study, complete and get my certifications in all the other Microsoft office skills such as Power Point, Access and all the other office skills and I'm going to be looking for a school, were I can get my Master Microsoft office skills, I want to go as far as I can with Microsoft Office skills and I want to go out into the world and teach it to others.

When they say...Bed Bugs are back, please believe them, my sister and I believe my 7yr old son have been bitten by the bug, my sister is pretty jacked up, I thought my son had chicken pots or something, but he also have mosquito( I think that's how you spell it) bites on his back as well, so I really never thought anything of it, until my sister got up at 6AM hollowing like a mad black women to my mother, wanting her to take her to the ER room and get checked out by a Doctor, so my mother took her to the Dr. and that's what he told her it was...Bed Bugs Bite!
He gave her cream and so far it's working, but she say, she is not getting back in her bed.

As for my son, we had to make a Doctor appointment for him, so I will see about him soon.

I scrubbed my bed down with bleach and so did my sister and I think she discovered the bugs in her bed, not many but like 2 or 3, but we both are working on getting new mattresses, I also did some research on Bed Bugs and it said that it hides in clothing, carpet and among other things....
I'm so disgusted by it and I just can't keep talking about it.

Ok, August 1st, I decided, that I will become a vegetarian and so far I been doing really well, I still eat fish and maybe later I will eliminate that, then maybe I want:-) I can say that so far, my stomach is going down, I believe I have a problem with digesting meat and the upper part of my stomach stays hard while my lower part is really soft, which is strange to me and I remember before, when I did a fast/detox,the upper part of my stomach went down and I loved how it made me feel and look and then I started eating meat again and so now, it's back, so I'm totally giving up meat and chicken. I went to Wholefoods and made a lot of groceries and I been preparing really good recipes and once I get a camera, I'm going to start taking pictures, so yall can see what I'm doing.

I'm really happy about my decision on becoming a vegetarian and of course people will have they say so about it and sometimes some people speak negative about it and I understand that those are the one's who are ignorant...LOL and I have had some positive talk from people and I take the advice from the positive folks, while the negative haters gets shut down!!!!

Anyway, I have to go and get some rest for work tonight.
Until Next time,

Peace & Love,
Brown Sistah

What can I say....

I been doing good on 3rd shift, at some moments I get sleepy, I would say around 5AM everyday I find my eyes slowly getting lower and lower....LOL. I Love the job, it's so easy and the people there are really nice, I like that.

I been there going on 3weeks and I didn't get paid for the very first week that I started and I'm trying to be patient without cussing they azz out, but they go make a sistah go there.

The recruiter that I'm working with is a very nice man and I haven't had a problem with him yet, but if I don't have 2 checks this coming Thursday, it's going to be trouble, trouble...I'm going over his head!

Working this 3rd shift have made me missed church and I don't like that, my paster actually came to my home last Sunday to see what happen to me and I felt really bad, but I had to explain to him, that I been working and we had a family reunion on one of the Sunday's, but I'm going to make it my business to go this Sunday. I actually missed 3 Sunday's of services...( do that sound right) Whatever, I got to get back into the church and that's a must!


I must say, I'm doing pretty good, I'm working and still attending school, being a outstanding mom and trying to be the best wife to my husband, but have he been the best husband...HECK NO!

I go to work Thur-Mon, from 11:30Pm til 8AM and I attend School Mon-Thur from 1:45-5Pm and sometimes, I be tied, my husband is not working and I feel like he should help me more around the house, since I'm the one taking care of the family and of course our share of the rent and bills...How come, I come home and our bedroom is in a complete mess, tore up from the floor up, he leaves plates and cups all on the floor and he smokes, I hate smoke and honesty, I always told myself, that I would never date a smoker and here I am married to one, if only you could see my face right now...LOL

The room smells like smoke, I hate it so bad and he have his ash tray on the floor and if my children get to that, his used cigarettes are on the floor with the other mes. I tell him, to help keep the room clean, that's the least he could do, Do yall understand what I'm saying?

I really, don't know how long, I'm going to put up with this, it may have to cause him to go live with his niece, I'm like you really not a big help to me and add more work for me. When I leave out the house at night, I leave around 10:40PM to walk to the train, he already be outside, I feel he should walk to the house and walk with me to the train, instead I walk my damn self, even though I see him on the way, I feel he should still at least come home and walk with me all the way to the train, so as I'm walking to the train, which is only really 2blocks, I meet up with him about a block away from the train and he walks the rest of the way with me to the.

He can also get on the elevator with me and wait for the train with me, he doesn't and I ask him to come up with me and only twice he have, but he will go back down, I'm like...damn, at least stay with me, it is night time, but I guess I should ask him to but I'm like, Why should I have to ask?

Peace & Blessings!

So many thoughts...

While coming home from school on the train, I have a lot of thoughts and ideas that I want to blog about, but once I get home, I can't seem to remember, that is so crazy!!!!

Anyway, these are my thoughts for today....

* Whatever happen to men opening doors and giving up their seats for us ladies, What happen to that? When I get on the bus or on the train, I see that the men are sitting down, but the women are standing up, I don't ever recall hearing a man asking me if I would like to take a seat, I think it's sad.

* I wonder why white folks in the downtown Chicagoland area run for the train, as if it's the only train coming, I look at them like they are crazy, because they will run you completely over for the damn train and it be another train right behind that train that they running to get on and it be jam packed, but the next train following that one, be empty. So please white people stop running trying to get on the first train you see and wait patiently for the next one, it will only take a minute and you just might get a seat to sit down on.

* I don't understand why, ex-drug users, get out of jail or out the rehab center and go right back to hanging with the same people they were hanging around with, who were getting high with them at the very beginning and still getting high while you were away, but you go back with the same people, (thinking they your friend and thinking they want to see you happy, because they don't) that is crazy to me, so now, I look around and 2 weeks have gone by and now you back on drugs again. I just don't understand, listen to me, YOU CAN NOT, CAN NOT, as much as you say you got this thing beat...YOU DON"T! You can not be around people who are users and you trying not to be one, it don't work.

* I don't understand why people, claim like they want to better themselves, but don't take the time out to make plans to do so, but they constantly wants to call you and complain about their living situation and once you start asking them questions pertaining to the information that they are giving you,( you trying to figure out how to help)but they make excuses. Just, please do me a favor, STOP CALLING ME!

* I think my mother practice being a Gemini, really she do, she have 2 personalities, one week she wants to move out and her and her foster child live alone and the next week she wants to give up her foster child and live with my family and I. It's like every 5mo's she get's like this and out of all honesty, like I stated on here before, My husband and I will be getting our own soon and that time is not coming soon enough, we just can't get with the 2 personalities, it really gets under my skin and I'm afraid I might hurt her feelings. My husband said, we will never live with her again, she may come to live with us, if she needs to, but we will not live in her place, because my mother have a tendency to always say...Mines, who in my kitchen, who put this in my bathroom, it's always mines...... just fuss all day long, all day long!

* I have a desire to move to Atlanta, I love Atlanta and I love the homes there, in the particular areas in which I'm looking, My family and I are really looking for a new start, we looking for a new city, new career, new friends, new car to drive us there, new school and friends for my children, a whole new environment, a place where it barely snows and also a new home.

We're looking for a new beginning and I prayed about it and I'm just leaving it all up to God, my plans were to work temporary jobs while I'm here in Chicago, save to get a car, complete school in a couple of months, use my income tax to plan to move, along with the money I plan to save while working, start applying for jobs, like the month of February and as soon as I get this great job opportunity there in the ATL, I will start looking for a place to stay, which I believe wouldn't be that hard, because I'm expecting God to bless us in every way and if my plan is in align with his, things will work out great and then my family and I will be living in the ATL baby!!!!

I have other plans or reasons why I want to relocated there to the ATL, but I will not discuss them at this moment, but yall will be finding out in the future, if God is willing.

* I wish the media would leave President Barack Obama alone, every man looks at booty, every man have looked at a woman azz before, I'm sure he was not lusting, it probably was a glance, I haven't seen the news pertaining to President Barack booty watching, but I know it was nothing to make a big deal out of, so just drop it!

* For God sakes, leave Michael Jackson alone, he is dead and gone and I can't believe the things that they are saying about him, like he was gay, please let Michael rest and also, please leave his family alone, especially Joe Jackson, My god!

* It's a couple of bloggers, I would love to meet, like Fergie, Tazzee, Aretha, Te-Erica, Serenity, Lady Lee, Babs, Single ma and a host of other bloggers that I can't remember at this moment, I think you ladies are absolutely fabulous, I read your blogs daily and you ladies, really inspire me a lot, you don't even no it, but I'm telling you now, I heart them all and there's no particular blog I like the most, because I love them all, they are all very great in what they do, ladies keep doing your thing, I learn a lot from you all and I also laugh a lot...lol.. Very smart, very beautiful, very educated women, who are doing it for themselves and some of them, if not all, doing it all by themselves successfully and I admire that.

I think I'm pretty much out of thoughts at this moment, maybe it's because I'm feeding my face with a Reese cup and Kit Kat...lol

So, I will talk 2 ya soon!
Be Good!

I'm so happy!



Let me tell yall, just a couple of days ago, I ask God for a Miracle and that I had no job, no money and I just simply needed a miracle. My family and I are living with my mother at the moment (so temporary) At times she had to pay everything by herself and that was not easy.

So, I prayed, I read my bible, I have wonderful friends praying for me and a wonderful church home, who continually keep my family & I in prayer . I got a sheet of paper, like my girlfriend Chell told me to do about a couple of months ago and this worked for me, just as it did this time as well, but anyway, I got a sheet of paper and I wrote God a letter stating what I wanted in a job, the location, the pay and some other things, so anyway, the temporary agency that I'm with, the recruiter is soooo nice, I just love him, I told my mother that I love nice people:-) OK, he been trying to get me another assignment and guess what?

Yes, he got me another assignment, it's in the pay range I prayed for, the location is also, the position is a 3rd shift position, I never worked a 3rd shift in my life, but this will be my first, I'm so excited (Jumping up and Down) it's more hrs then the other position that I was recently had, so that means, more money, more money...YES!

All I can say is, God is so wonderful, I put my trust in God, just as I always will and you should to:-) and look what he/she have done for me honeychild, I'm still able to attend school, without being late, I'm so blessed, all I can say is...THANK YOU Jesus!!!!

The position is for a period of 90day to Hire and I get paid every week, so money in my pocket every week, I like that.

I'm about to write down me some plans on how to save for me a car and to save for my move to Atlanta for next year and also deposit some money into my personal savings account as well as my children account, Brown Sistah got some plans.

I'm just so grateful and I would forever be grateful, I would forever praise God, I would forever worship God and I would forever and continually build a stronger relationship with God, he/she is my everything!

Let me go, I'm about to get ready to watch the Tiny and Toya reality TV show on BET, yes I like that show, I love reality TV and I can't wait for Frankie & Neffe, Daddy's Little Girls, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta, I don't watch nothing else really, I'm a reader and a computer head, I barely watch TV, but my show are coming on this season and I'm ready to watch.

Until next time, Be Good,
Keep your head up and always put God 1st.

Peace & Blessings,

The Week-end and Random Thoughts

This weekend went by so fast, just as time has, it is July already, pretty soon it's going to be snowing and I hate snow...lol

I really didn't do much, Friday, I stay in and watched TV, chill with my children and other family members, I stayed on Facebook:-) Saturday, My Mother and Aunties had a fish fry over to my Grandmothers house, my mother tells me in memory of Micheal Jackson and I looked at her and said...Whatever!!

My husband hates when I say "Whatever" he claims like his first wife use to say it all the time, but who cares, I'm not her and I still say...."Whatever"

Sunday, I missed Church and I felt so bad, because I just started going to this Church and I really like it, I mean I Love It!

The people are sooo nice and I truly love meeting nice people, because I'm a nice girl and I just think the world needs to be filled with nice loving people...Don't you think so?

It would make the world a better place for you and me...We are the World, We are the Children..lol...OK, that's a MJ song, but I thought it would fit right on in, in what I was trying to say.

I had to miss church, because I'm having some uncomfortable pain in my ankle and my knees and I didn't like that feeling, I have a Doctors appointment and it's all the way in August, but man the way these months are flying, August would come in no time.

I can tell yall this, my children are sitting here, getting no my nerves and I CAN"T WAIT UNTIL THEY GO BACK TO SCHOOL!

I wish they can go to school all year around, I swear I do and I'm serious, my little one, who is 4yrs old is about to start Pre-School this year and I can't wait, the only thing, I wish he can go all day, man I would love that, but it's only for 4hrs a day.

I have to say Peace out now, I have to get ready for school, I'm going to type back later!
Have a wonderful Day!


Peace & Blessings!

I Swear I need a Miracle God

I'm really in need of a Miracle God, I'm in need of a job, a car, and a apartment, I'm just all jacked-up, I been praying and of course you know that, I'm just like any other human being who gets inpatient with you God. I'm so Inpatient, I'm trying to stay strong and be encouraging to others, but I'm about to have a break down, but instead I need a breakthrough.

I tell myself...just hold on, God is in my favor, but how long Oh God, I'm doing my best to stay uplifted and that's really hard when I'm surrounded with negativity, depression (husband & mother) and don't get me to talking about the community that we're living in Lord, I'm talking about drug infected, killing, just right around the corner from me Lord, you see it and I understand every neighborhood is not perfect, I truly understand that, but I do know that there is one just a little bit better then this one, Bless my family and I with a more loving and better community then this one and I do pray for this community Father God, it really needs your healing.

I'm asking for strength, a peace of mind, I'm trying to be strong and I feel like, I'm always being encouraging to others, being there for others in their time of need and I'm just feeling a little drained. I don't like to feel like that, I want and need my energy to be renewed, I need that Oh' God.

I'm asking for your help, my family and I have no kind of money coming in to support us, I'm thankful for the 2 month temporary assignment that I just completed and I pray they call me back again, because I really need to work, my husband really needs to work, we need you so much God, everyday we looking for employment, weather it's applying online or doing walk-ins, nothing is coming available for us and what I'm asking and praying for you Father God, to bless us, give us the Miracle that we are so deserving of Father God, may closed doors, now be open for us Father God.

You promised me, God, that you would open doors for me that no one could close, and that you would close doors that no one could open. You promised that you would prepare a table before me, even when others said it would be impossible in this time of the recession God.

Today, Tomorrow, and Yesterday you are always amazing, so loving, so kind, so caring, so understanding, so forgiving, you are just my everything, my life, you are the beginning and the end Father God and that's why I come to you, because I know that you are the only one who can help me Father God, in this time of need, no one but you and I love you sooo much!


I'm sooo grateful for you Father God, I Thank you for the privilege of Prayer, I Thank you for always being there for me, always listening and always providing for me and my family, I do know that it appears to look hard for my family and I at this time, but I'm going to keep pushing and pushing my way through Father God and I'm expecting a miracle from you Father God, I'm expecting that all my prayers will be answered, I'm expecting your good!

P.S. Father God, Please forgive me if my prayer seems selfish!

I Love you Father God,

My Micheal Jackson Dedication






On June 25, 2009, We have lost The King of Pop, we all know who that is, because there is no other and in my humble opinion there will never, ever be another...Micheal Jackson, I'm still in complete shock and lost for words, I am a Micheal Jackson fan and so is every one in my family.

My 7yr old learned of Micheal Jackson over a year in a half ago and all he wanted me to do was play Micheal Jackson, he didn't care if it was on the internet or put in a Micheal Jackson CD, so my husband went out and bought him a Radio/Cd player and we bought him a Micheal Jackson CD, yall my child listen to Micheal Jackson all day, he fell asleep with the headphones on, with the sheet and blanket over his head, I laughed so hard, I was like my baby is going Micheal Jackson crazy and if that wasn't enough, I went on youtube and found all the Micheal Jackson video's that I can find for him, from the time Micheal was with his brothers The Jackson Five, singing..ABC as easy as 123 and of course all the other fabulous tunes the Jackson's have made.

My 7yr old, starting noticing a change in Micheal Jackson, from when he was a little boy or a little black boy, to a Grown azz wanna be white boy Micheal Jackson...lol..I just had to add that, but anyway, my son start noticing that Micheal Jackson was not the same Micheal Jackson any more after the "Thriller" video...He start noticing Micheal Jackson skin color change, his nose and all the other stuff that my boy Micheal Jackson changed about him self, so my child, ok, (this is when he start being fascinated with Micheal Jackson), ok he watched "Thriller" and then he watched "Remember the time" and the other video's when Micheal start getting lighter, my child looked at me and said.....Mama, this is not Micheal Jackson, boy did my husband and I start laughing, I said....Yes baby, that is Micheal Jackson, he just made some changes to his skin & nose, but after that he really didn't ask anything else and he really didn't care, all he knew was he love Micheal Jackson, he didn't care what changes Micheal Jackson made to himself, he looked at him like I did, a very talented, successful man who can perform his but off and had the baddest songs ever.

No one could ever compare to Micheal Jackson, I wish I had the opportunity to take my children to see him in concert, but he is gone and we will remember him in our heart and if we really start missing him soooo badly, we can always log onto youtube and watch some of our very own favorite Micheal Jackson video's.

I know all his CD's are sold out at all the stores, so we are going to have to wait for at least a couple of weeks or order them off line.

I wish the media can just bag up off of him, they are so mean, so harsh, so cruel, they always talked bad about him about him at times and they rarely even spoke about the good Micheal Jackson was doing and as for all that molestation crap, I never believed it, I never ever believed it and I'm sorry, that's my opinion and as a matter of fact, I was just reading a email stating that the first boy, that claim Micheal Jackson sexually molested him was LYING and Micheal settle out of court with 20 or 22 millions of dollars, come to find out that was not true, so I hope Micheal Jackson family take that to court and press charges against that family that lied on him, that's a crying shame the things people do for money, it's really sad and they will pay, better believe that.

OK, let me go, I hope you guys enjoyed the pictures that I got from off a entertainment gossip blog.

Peace & Blessings!

Prayer for Guidance

Dear God:

Please purge my agenda today. Take out of my life everything and everyone that could possibly take my focus from you. Take out of my mind every thought, every belief, every intention, every motivation that does not make you the priority in my life. Take out of my heart every experience, every memory, every desire that does not serve your purpose for my life. Remind me that your plan, your love for me is my salvation. Everything else is a figment of my imagination and a function of fear. Today, dear God, I recognize that I don't even know what to pray for, so I will leave the blessings up to you.

And So It Is!


This Prayer come from "Every Day I Pray" By Iyanla Vanzant


I hope you enjoy!

Church

I went to a new Church today and it's right behind my house, for about a month, I been getting up, getting on the train and going to this other church that I use to enjoy, well, I still light the Church, but I really enjoyed The Light House Church today, I felt so good, I even joined.

Yes, I joined today, I was moved by the spirit to join and that's what I did, it felt right, I felt good, I felt so welcomed, the Pastor was wonderful, I'm still speechless, it's like I can't explain it, but I still feel good and I'm sooo excited.

I"m trying to build a relationship with God, The Bible says "Draw near to me and I will draw near to you" so that's what I'm doing. I really don't know the bible much, but I am learning and in the past I didn't believe in the bible, because I kept thinking it was created by a white men, but anyway, I'm over that and I said to myself, if it was created by a white man, I'm going to still read it anyway, because it's so powerful, inspiring and moving.

I can't stop reading it now, I prayed for a lot of things and God is so good, I see the things that I prayed for appearing in my life today and I'm so excited, I'm really excited about this journey that I'm about to embark upon, this new found walk with God that I'm on and it feels soooooo good!

Can yall feel what I'm say? I feel like I'm speaking or typing so fast, that my words are not making since, but please understand that I just Love God so much and this feeling, that I am feeling, I never felt before and I just feel God moving in me and through me and I ask for that, so I'm happy!

Thank You Jesus!

I have to go, because I'm sleep and have to work 2morrow, so take care and until next time,
Be Good! Be Safe!

Peace & Blessings!

My thoughts!

1. Have you ever seen or heard of someone, who thinks that you suppose to stop what you are doing to cater to they needs, but they don't want to do the same for you. Well, that's my brother, he don't no nothing about nothing but trying to be the boss, how you go be the boss and don't no shit! I did his resume for him, I helped him create a Career Builder resume and I helped him create a email address @ gmail.com, so the fool calls here on a Sunday, which is today and tells me he's about to come down and check his email, I told him he can't come down here now, because I have alot to do on my computer and he can come later, he says ok, let me speak to my momma, I handed my mother the phone and this damn fool go tell my mother...She said she got alot to do on her computer, that's why I can't wait to Lo (my grandmother, who he lives with) get her internet on Wednesday and starting talking shit to my mother, so my mother told him well fool (my words not hers) she might do have alot to do, she do her homework online and other stuff. I told my mother, I'm not letting him use shit, she always feel sorry for the fool and tells me....don't say nothing, just let him use it later. You better believe, if he bring his but down here (he lives a couple of houses down from us) I'm let him know, things don't go the way you want them to go all the time and especially not with me, I'm not going to do it!
My business is just important then yours, so realize that!

2. I started a temporay job about 3 weeks ago, I'm very happy about it, the assignment was only to last for 2 weeks, but the company says that they would need our services for another month
I'm really happy about that and even though I stand on my feet for 8hrs, the work is really easy, I'm a copying clerk, I copy Lawyers and other business people files or records all day, easy work, the people there are sooooo nice and actually I wrote a note on what I was looking for in a job, the pay, the location, friendly office environment, I wanted it to be part-time (because I'm in school) and I prayed over it and place it in my bible and God have blessed me with this job, the location, the pay, and the friendly office environment was what I asked and prayed for right on point. I'm working full-time 7-3Pm Mon-Fri and I suppose to be at school from 1:45-5:30Pm, but I get there at 3:15Pm because it's right around the corner from my school, I told my instructor that I was working a temp job for now and I will be late for school until the end of June and he said....You got to do, what you got to do:-)

3. I decided to start a game night for my family and I, just to do someting as a family, we never really do anything as family, I'm starting with the women first, then there will be couples only, then I'm going with bringing the entire family on board. Each member will have the opportunity to host the party for the month that they choose, for the month of June, I'm going to start it, since I am the creater...LOL I believe, the game I'm going to go with will be Bunco, now I have to find out how the game needs to be played. I'm going to have each member bring $5 bucks and who ever win the game will get the cash. Actually, I got this idea from The Sister group I'm with call Sisters with Connection located in Dallas, TX

4. I was born and raised here in Chicago and although just about all of my family members live here, the ones who I connect with daily. We are having a family reuniun here in Chicago, in July and I'm soooo excited about it, because just recently, I just started meeting other members of my family members (Thanks Facebook) some live in Houston, Detroit, Nebraska, and Atlanta, I just can't wait to meet them in person, I never been to a family reunion before, not mines or at least I can't remember, anyway like I was saying I been in the Chi-town just about my entire life and guess what? I'm ready to leave again, if I was in my right mind, I would have stayed in Dallas, it was such a beautiful place to live, I'm not saying Chicago, is not a nice place to stay, what I'm saying is I'm looking to explore another city, I want to see something different, well some would say...just move to another neighborhood girl, no thank you, I want to leave here.
So, I'm working on and planning to leave the city of Chicago within 2yrs or less the cities I been thinking about is.....Atlanta, North Carolina, Arizona, Houston, Dallas (again) Florida, I been thinking hard about Atlanta and I think it beats out all the other places I been looking at.
So, look out for me ATL, unless God choose another location for me:-) Atlanta been in my gut for sometime now and I'm really thinking about living there, but Dallas has as well, I still have family there that would love for me & my family to be there.

5. This is the 2nd week I have missed church and I told God this morning, that this will be the last time, I miss going, I been having problems walking, my knees and ankle been hurting me sooo bad, to the point, I could barely walk. I have a Doctor's appointmnent June 23, so I'm going to check that out and I have to get rid of this weight, I'm a juicy girl, I look good, don't get it twisted people:-) I'm just not happy with this weight and bacisally I'm tied of caring it around with me, every where I go...lol....My major problem is my arms, stomach, aww shoot, who am I'm kidding, I got major problems all over:-(.... but, I do like my but, I guess I can say I'm a pear shape woman, my waist line is small, but I have alot of bottom, if you know what I mean.
I'm tied of complaining, so it's leaving this body, I believe I would be comfortable with being a size 9-10 I don't want to be real skinny, I still want my husband to be able to hold onto something and he thinks, I'm fine the way that I am. Whatever!

I guess, I'm done talking yall head off..LOL
I will be back tomorrow, actually I said that I will start blogging more regularly, so look to hear from me tomorrow, if God is willing!

Be Good! Be Safe!


Peace & Blessings!

I messed up!

I have not been blogging lately, because my children been sick with the flu, which I also totally messed up my cleanse due to them being sick...Yes, I'm blaming my mess up on my children...LOL

I have seriously kinda messed up my cleanse, but I haven't eaten any red meat, I have eaten chicken the other day and ooooh chocolate, yes I have chocolate, but not to much, just one candy bar.

I'm starting over, this Sunday, I hope the Lord forgive me, but I'm picking myself back up, so that's good, right? This time, I'm not going to be this drastic, I'm do a little at a time, like I'm start with eliminating the red meat first and pull away from the sugar/candy bars or whatever.

I'mma do it slow, this is going to work for me, please pray for me blog world.


Talk 2 ya soon!

Day 1 of My Cleanse!

I woke up with prayer this morning and I'm so proud of myself, I went to church today and I haven't been to church in about 2yrs and I'm sooo glad I did. One of my ways of developing a relationship with God is for me to get myself in the church and this church I really like besides the Paster Frederick D. Haynes Church that's located in Dallas, TX.

The Paster here at Mars Hills Baptist Church, his name is Paster Stowers, he preached a good service today, he spoke about Love and how we sometimes say so freely that we love someone, but do you really know what love is, Love is Patients, Love is Kind, Love is a verb, It's Action!

Don't just say you love someone but then you don't show it, show people that you love them by your action!

Also, he spoke about what love is not...Love is not Proud (Gifts are tools of service not self-advancement) Love is not Self-Seeking (Being Selfish or Self-Centered)
Love is not Envy, Love does not envy and envy is another word for jealousy and no one should be jealous of no one, God made us all different, we all are unique in our own way.

Ok, back to my cleanse, I decided that I wanted to release some weight, get healthy & fit, create a loving relationship with God, eliminate some negative things and some negative people from my life, give up something for something. That's why I decided to give up the internet, except for me blogging about this experience or looking for a job. I'm addicted to social networking, I'm addicted to entertainment blogs, shit I'm even addicted to reading other blogs and I decided to give up my addiction for the lord and spend time getting to know more about him, studying his word, being more prayerful and all the good stuff that comes along with developing a loving relationship with God.

As far as me trying to release some weight, my weight is getting very bad, honestly I just let myself go, I'm just eating all kinds of stuff and especially living here with my mother, she eats so much crap and we both know that we don't need it. I'm just sick n' tied of this thick sh** and the unhealthy stuff that comes along with it, like all the diseases that you can get by being obese, that's scary.

When, My husband and I were living in our own, I was a healthy eating sistah, I was juicing, eating more fruit and veggies, no red meat and definitely no pork, I still won't have any pork, you know what the pig is, it's a rat, cat, and dog all in one and plus it eats it's on sh**(How disgusting, Right?) we got to be careful, because there is some pork in just about everything.

Well, during my cleanse, I'm eliminating...Sugar, Red Meat, Chicken, Fish, Junk food, Chocolate (which is going to be hard) but heck, I can do it, let me hear you cheer me on..."You can do it!" LOL

I will be juicing, I will have smoothies (I love smoothies) lots of salad, lots of fruit and I got recipes from off the internet the other day for cooking vegetables in many different ways. I'm also following the Fit for Life plan, it's a book, it's called Fit for Life and it's by Harvey & Marilyn Diamond, this book is very nice, very helpful, very true and some people, I know speaks highly of it and it's talking about food combining and lots of other good stuff, please if you interested in becoming healthy and getting rid of the weight permanently, this is the book to get.

I'm not going to eat after 8PM, also have some Cascara Sagrada cleansing pills, until I can get the whole detox plan from Nature Sunshine, in which I'm a distributor, but haven't really focused on the business, but I will soon, I'm trying to do one thing at a time and what's important to me right now is, God, Myself, family, school and looking for a part-time job, until I'm done with school.

I prayed and talked to God and I feel good, so far I haven't had a desire for chocolate, but it is the first day, I'm going to need yall to pray for me, I'm serious, because eliminating sugar is going to be challenging for me, I might be cranky and stuff, but the family know what I'm trying to do, so they expecting that.

The day is almost gone, I'm about to read some of my bible, I'm also reading Iyanla Vanzant book "One Day My Soul Just Opened Up" what a terrific book, I advise yall to purchase it if you don't, It's really helping me connect with myself more and also with the Divine, it's really a very good book as well.

I'm really also during a Spiritual Cleanse, as one of my friends call it, so I'm on a Spiritual Cleanse, I'm working on cleansing My Mind, Body, and Soul. It will be well worth it.

Pray for me blog family, I need strength. I'm about to lay it down now, I'm getting sleepy, so I will talk 2 ya soon!

Peace & Blessings!

I said...that's his website, Jabari says...It looks like it say SpongeBob to me. Talking about somebody laughing so hard, he looked at me and he start laughing and kissing me, I said..little boy you are to much, go to bed.

Priest: "Why did you call him a son of a bitch?"

What a Day!
















Any Body want to guess where I been today, go ahead, take a wild guess. Yes, I went on a field trip with my 7yr old today and we went to Lincoln Park Zoo, we seen those big, beautiful looking animals that you see posted on here. My son and I had a ball, along with all the other children in his class and you talking about exercise, I walked all over the park, the park is fine, but they didn't have to many animals out today. The monkeys showed out and gave us a great performance, they were swing all over the place, dancing, cracking jokes, singing, juggling ball and stuff (I'm kidding) there was this white monkey, that just wanted to sit still and watch us, but that was cool, the black ones act up enough fool for us to laugh about...LOL

I'm glad they didn't pee on us, the last time I went to the zoo, a monkey tried to pee on us, we had to jump back. Anyway, we enjoyed ourselves and I look forward to the next field trip in May. I just love to go on field trips with my children and they are very happy to have their mom, along with them:-)

I use to go on trips with my oldest son, that's out the way...yay!!!!
now, I have my 7yr old and next, my 4yr old and he will be starting school in September and talking about somebody who can't wait, I can't, when I went to enroll him, the Teacher said...

Do you want Jabari to start school tomorrow? You should have seen my face and I looked at him, he tried to cover his face with his hands and he looked at me like...Did she just ask my mama that, I start laughing, but that couldn't happen, because I don't have his shot record and he will not have one either, because I don't believe in immunization, so I have to get a letter from our Doctor stating that I don't believe in immunization and also print the sheet from off the Islamic website that I go to. So, he will be starting in September and I'm going to have everything ready.

If you ever in Chicago, visit Lincoln Park Zoo, here's the website www.lpzoo.com

I'm off to take a nap and later it's school work for myself.

Peace & Love,

Joke of the Week!

The minister was passing a group of young teens sitting on the Church lawn and stopped to ask what they were doing.

"Nothing much, Pastor," replied one boy. "We were just seeing who can tell the biggest lie about their sex life."

"Boys, boys, boys!" he scolded. "I'm shocked. When I was your age, I never even thought about sex."

In unison they all replied, "You win!


Enjoy!

Aries In the House!

Aries live life head first; after all, those horns on your head are not just for fighting. Your headstrong nature can make you a "battering ram" and woe is the person who stands in your way.

Aries are noted for courage and leadership qualities, primarily because you are nearly always ready for action. The need for excitement pushes you into new territory -- and as long as you are ahead of others while demonstrating confidence, chances are that they will follow you. As self-ordained leader of the pack, Aries fight for what you believe to be important. But it's not that Aries are fearless. Your courage is more of a commitment to face your fears and overcome them.

Aries motto is "Ready, fire, aim!" It may be backwards for others, but you'd rather figure out what to do while you are doing it. Impulsive actions, however, can bring you your share of trouble. While others are gathering information to make informed decisions, you are already on your way. As such, you could suffer from false starts. In fact, you Aries are so good at starting things that you can be off onto your next project before completing the previous one. As you Aries mature, you learn to slow down your reaction time in order to think about the consequences of your actions.

Element: Fire
Fire signs are naturally warm. A fire gives light and heat, but it doesn't get depleted as others feed on its warmth. One candle can bring light to a room and it won't burn any faster if ten people read from its light than if there was only one. Fire doesn't plan it next move; it isn't logical. It simply is in the moment and will burn what fuel is available without judgment or forethought. For this reason fire signs can successfully rely on their intuition and survival instincts.

The fire of Aries is spontaneous and hot. It's like a pile of dry kindling that burns fast but cannot sustain itself for the long haul.

First House: Self
The First House symbolizes our physical body and our personality -- how we appear to the outer world. It's not necessarily who we are; it's what we bring to a situation and how others see us. It represents our childhood, the beginning of any activity or even the start of a new relationship. It's not, however, about the other person; it's about how others see us. No doubt, everything starts with the First House.

Key Planet: Mars
Mars is called the "Angry Red Planet." In Greek mythology, Mars was the God of War. But Mars isn't only about fighting; it's about going somewhere, going anywhere. If someone is in our path, then, perhaps we must fight with them in order to keep going. Mars is like the gas pedal of our bodies. It's represents how we move forward in life. In any chart, Mars offers clues as to how we express our basic energy. As the key planet of Aries, it reminds us to "just do it."

Aries Greatest Strength:
Your courage to overcome fear

Aries Possible Weakness:
Not finishing things you start

A Good Day!

I Thank the Lord, it was a good day today, I was expecting this call from this manager, at a company I interviewed with on Friday. It went well for me and it seem like he was interested in me working for the company, he told me that he was going to call me before Monday, to tell me if I was one of the lucky people that would get the opportunity to work for the company, today is Tuesday and I have not received a phone call yet.
I'm a little disappointed, but hey, the hell with him. I just look at this way, if it was meant for me, it would be mines, I'm moving on.

God got something else on his/her agenda for me:-)
So, I won't complain, because I know it's going to be something BIG & Wonderful and also, it would be something that I would enjoy doing in the first place. I'm looking for a career, were I can help someone, some-what working independently, something were I'm doing a good deed, something I would enjoy, I haven't figure it out yet, but that's just a little of something, I want to do. And, I forgot, I don't want no boss hanging over my head.

Wow, I just need to work for my damn self and actually that's what I'm working on doing, sometime I feel like God is telling me to, I have the brains, I have the go-getter attitude and all that good stuff that comes along with starting a business, but no money to get started.

I'm about to be truly blessed in a little while, I can just feel it! Not, that I'm not blessed now, but my family and I been going through some challenges and I feel God moving in our lives right now and I feel that it's going to be good.


I went to School today, I didn't feel like it, but I'm glad I did. I like School, my thing is getting up and going. I don't like riding that damn train, it be so damn packed with people,(crazy & strange people)it be full to capacity and I really hate it, sometimes I just wait for another train come and praying it's empty or at least not so full to capacity with crazy & strange folks. LOL


I'm learning Effective Facilitation skills, it's something new to me and so far I'm enjoying it, it's about knowing how to take charge of work sessions and how to lead a group toward successfully completing their work objectives. I like taking charge so I know I will be getting a "A" in this class.

My 7yr old and my 10yr old brother is on Spring break this week, next week, I'm on Spring break, I'm soooo happy! They would be in School and I will be relaxing, wait a minute, I still have my 4yr old home with me:-( And you talking about a energize bunny, my 4yr old be bouncing off my head all day long, I call him my little baby, my boys have their on room, but their room is inside my room (because we are living with my mother for now) that's going to change real soon:-) And my 4yr old always, always be in my husband & I bed every morning, sleeping right next to me, that is so funny, my husband says when we move, he's going to lock our door or put chains at their door, so he can't come out, that was so funny to me.

I have so many business idea's, but no money to start with, sometime I think I use that as a excuse, so I'm looking for ways on how I can start one of my business adventures without cash.
Some of you might think, it would be hard to do and actually that's what I been saying also, but I know it's something that I can do, I feel stuck at times, but God will work it out for me.

Have you ever felt like you wanted to start a business or start anything but lacking the funds to get it started?

Peace~Love~Happiness

Stop Bragging...Who Cares?

I'm not a jealous person,I'm not jealous of what you have, I don't wish to be like you, I don't wish I was you, I'm just not that type of person, I'm perfectly happy being me, I might don't have a lot, but I got something and guess what, I appreciate everything God have bless me with. I'm really serious about this, because I think, when ever this certain person talks to me, they always have to add a price tag on everything that they have purchase and honesty, I think you really crazy for spending that kind of money on certain things that you buy. (In my opinion)
I thought, that this person just wanted to share their information with me, out of friendship and it's been going on for awhile (I'm call her Janice) that Janice been doing this and I really didn't pay it any attention, until we have certain conversation about me and that I don't have money to do certain things or go shopping, and then that's when Janice bragging starts.

Like when I was working, had a okay job, I was able to do some stuff, I did not receive any phone calls from Janice and when I call her, she will not answer the phone, but she calls me all the damn time now, because she think I don't got shit. Maybe, I'm just tripping, because I am on my period and shit. LOL..sorry, but I don't think I'm tripping, you tell me.

I don't have a job, my funds are very low, but I got God, my family, my health & strength, I got food, clothing, & a place to lay my head. I'm working on my African Product business, I'm in school for Business/Computer, I'm working on my teen book with my teen son and so much stuff. See, I got a lot, a whole lot!

I'm sooo happy, I got happy feet!
Because, I feel a change is coming, I feel it, I trust God and that's all I no people, I know he/she will not let me down.

I'm soooo happy being me, no matter what I have, please believe me!
God no's I'm blessed and forever will be bless, even if I live in a shelter, each day is a new beginning and it's up to me on what I want to do with it and believe me, I'm going to make the best of it!

I have so many goals, that I'm working toward and hopefully, I'm hearing God correctly and if I am, things are going to go abundantly well for me. I trust God, I Believe he/she is making a way for me to prosper and I'm looking to take people along the way with me.

I ask God to Bless me, so that I can be a Blessing to others and that's how I feel.
So, I Love, Love being me, again, I don't care what you have, what you getting or where you are going and if you reading this blog, I don't care.

I'm very happy for you, I'm happy for your happiness and I always will be (smile)


Peace & Blessing!
