I know I have been MIA for a bit, but I’m still tripping along. Many of you know that I am expecting another baby in April (IT’S ANOTHER BOY!) and I’m so excited. I feel that boys are fun and my son can have a best friend as they grow older. My husband and I have another little cub in our “Wolf Pack” So, it’s all good.
This pregnancy has been VERY different though. With my first, there were times I forgot that I was pregnant or that I battled MS because I barely experienced any symptoms. However, this time around the moment of finding out it seems I was reminded every day that I was carrying life and the immediate changes that occurred in my body. I still have weakness in my legs at times, my belly popped out sooner and I’ve been very achy. Through it all, I’m still standing and remaining thankful.
I know pregnancy is a privilege to many and I don’t take it for granted. It’s also a responsibility to our families and communities. What we teach and how we teach our youth can determine how they create themselves to the world. Therefore, raising two young men, holds a lot of importance to me. I promised, their Mother to do my best by them for eternity and I have faith that I will.
Thank you for reading and for your patience as this mama is busy on the Grow.
Each day we wake up in a blessing, a second chance to do better. Sometimes we can feel like we are up against a wall and it gets hard to breathe. Together friends, let’s choose to keep going and take a Deep Breath.
Where is the Love for the MS Warriors? Right here!!!
As I’ve written before, March is MS Awareness Month and this week is MS Awareness week. Even with my wobbly legs, I am continuing to Push Through!
I made a choice to show up strong for my loved ones, go to work even when it hurts, and I’ve modified outfits so that I’m comfortable as an effort to beat the challenges of MS. There are some days that I’m not able to give 100% but trust and believe giving 0% is NOT an option .
To my fellow Warriors and Caregivers, I’m proud of you for Not giving up. The Pain and Depression is real and can effect us but I believe in You! I also believe that we will be Victorious against this horrible disease. Therefore, I will continue to send spiritual and positive energy your way! Thank you all for being supportive to me as well!
You don’t have to be in service all day long but Recognize that we get our Strength and blessings from a source deeper than Man. No matter who you submit or repent to, seek healing and Peace through the teachings.
I feel like my little world has been spinning ultra fast. Between wifey duties, mommy hood, battling MS, TN flare ups and work, I’ve just been trying to Exhale. Wooooo Saaaaa
lLife was never meant to be fair or easy. This, at times is a hard pill to swallow. I get lost in my thoughts and begin questioning my purpose. Am I going to be alright? Am I giving my best at all times? Do I make my family and ancestors proud? Do I make God proud?
After my semi melt downs, I diffuse some doTerra essential oils, take deep breaths and try to have calmer moments. I keep it moving and pray for strength and for better days.
I hope when this happens, that you can find something that can bring calmness to you. Finding Peace is the Aim for us all. Not easy but Necessary. Peace and love to all.
I keep reminding myself that no matter how difficult a challenge may be or what I plan to do, it won’t happen if it’s not in God’s Will.
I become worrisome because things are not going my way. I get down and wonder how will this work out because my plans fell through. But then.. God steps in. Not in my timing but in HIS timing. The end result has been Greater than any of my blue prints.
Friends don’t give up. If your plans don’t work out, keep the faith and God will see you through. ☺️🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
Wow… this morning I was reading my devotional plan about being “stronger than the struggle” and look what the subject consisted of… Fear! Didn’t I just write about that yesterday? Woooo!!! Great start to the day! Be blessed everyone 😊♥️🙏🏾
