Vaughn Nicolas.. our 1 year old

The country has experienced chaos due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Life as we know it has changed. Masks wearing, social distancing, working from home etc. However, during this time, I had the joy and honor of watching my youngest son grow.

Vaughn Nicolas turned 1 on 4/23 (yesterday) and it indeed was a joyous moment yet an emotional one too. V, has brought so much happiness and laughter to our family, and we truly are complete. However, with any milestone, I think about the members of our family who are not physically here to view these moments. I also get emotional because it means he will grow into his OWN independence and not need me as much and he’s the last one for the team. So no more little babies 🥺.

Either way, I’m beyond blessed to have his presence, to smell him, hold him and Love him! I’m thankful to be chosen to be his mama, and will do my best to nurture him and his big brother until my last breath.

I’m glad to blog again and why not start back with a post about our little Prince?! 🥰

Thanks for reading,

Happiness at the Core

We all like what we like and want what we want, but does it make you feel good at your core or just the surface?

Have you had a rough day and decided to splurge at your favorite store? Purchased the new Jordan 1’s or even eat a 5 course meal at an exclusive restaurant? It feels good to release those emotions, but how long does it last? You still end up with the same sadness, pain and frustration.

When we don’t have true happiness within our hearts or at our core, none of it truly matters. We need to dig deep for happiness and not just at surface level. I hope that resonates with us all. Happy Wednesday!

Broken Charger?

How many can say that this has happened to their device chargers? YUP, TOO MANY! How many can say that they KNOW what this feels like? 🙋🏾‍♀️ I can, along with other MS Warriors. This is exactly what happens to the Myelin (covering of the nerves) throughout our Central Nervous system. For myself, the damage leaves me with mobility issues, numbness, nerve pain (inflammatory disease as well), cognitive issues and of course Fatigue. Some other warriors have eye issues called optic neuritis and their vision is blurred, doubled or gone. We don’t ask for sympathy or pity. We ask for understanding, support and for people be educated. I’m so thankful for my loved ones who have supported me during this journey! Even though I get tired, frustrated and sad, please know… I’m NO QUITTER. Ok?!!! Your girl still has work to do! Love you all!! 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾🧡🧡🧡💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾

Sometimes….

The past few days have been so tough friends. From falls, wobbly legs, nerve pain in my arms and legs, your pal is TIRED! However, I’m still Showing up and Not giving up! I’m here for you if you have these moments. Rather it’s Physical, Mental or even Spiritual, I’m here for you 🧡 Stay blessed, Be Well 💫

Where is the love Wednesday: Emotional child support

This is the sad but true case for many families. How can an adult bring their emotions and vulnerability to their interpersonal relationships if that tool wasn’t given? Should EVERYTHING fall on the parents? No. However, emotional support to your children is just as important as physical and financial support.

Has this been you? Did you turn to another family member to provide that emotional support? Or did you find yourself doing the work on your own with a therapist?

What does the child do? Thoughts?

Thank you for reading!
