Hi friends! How’s it going? Things on my end are ok. Ups and downs just like everyone else. I’m still a work in progress so bare with me 💁🏾♀️
Today, I’m home with my little guy because he’s on winter recess from school. I just had one of my many moments and he smiles and hand me one of my journals with a pen.
I sat there in amazement. I felt, at that moment, SVJ was delivering a message from God. He saw me weeping about life after tragedy. He knows my heart and what’s been weighing heavy on my mind, and soul.
Life after tragedy has been difficult. A part of me left when my loved ones went to be with the Lord. However, I know they would want me to live. In fact, as a child, my father always said, “Baby, when I go, you have to go on because Life goes on”. I hated those conversations then and still have a tough time handling it now.
Thank you SVJ for being my earthly Angel to deliver this message. I can promise God, my family, friends and myself that I won’t give up or give in. This will take time, but Living in search for Peace is what I’m going to do!
Thanks for reading friends!!

Yesterday, marked 2 years since our beloved Amiyah Kayla Dunston passed away from injuries of a pit bull attack. Even though it’s been 2 years ago, the day plays vividly in my mind. The thoughts of “not again, God”, because my father passed 3 months unexpectedly prior.
Amiyah was a great daughter, sister, granddaughter, cousin, friend, student, of course Goddaughter (to me and my husband) and more. Her spirit of KINDNESS filled the room wherever she went. She touched the lives of all who knew her.
We will never know WHY it had to be her, but I’m blessed to have had such a beautiful person in my life. She was definitely smart beyond her years and I’ve learned a lot from her. In 9 years, I’ve learned patience, acts of Kindness, loving unconditionally, regardless of circumstance, to have positive vibes only, to smile and her main motto: “Be You”. We all could take a page from Amiyah’s life and apply it to our own.
So, yes, we continue to mourn, but we also celebrate Life because that’s what she would have wanted. Thank you Amiyah, for bringing out the best in all of us.
To my readers, please continue to pray for her entire family and friends. Pray for our children and cherish them. Thank you!
