Weekend Bliss

Yesterday someone asked if I was happily married and I responded "blissfully so!" I didn't even have to think about it. In my opinion, the honeymoon is only over when you say so! Keep LOVE alive people! Make Love, Not War!... hehe

Have a great weekend. Mine is going to be full of "see you later(s)"... it's never good bye!

Thought Processes

When you touch my face
When you kiss my lips
When our eyes connect
When you changed the game
How you love me best
How I can't deny
How I can't control...
That I love you most!

Forever and a day!

That's how long I feel like it's been since I posted! Pardon my absence from blogging often. I am going through a period of transition and I am a little frazzled and disorganized from it. That's the only excuse I have. Lately though, I have been wondering; what does it really mean to belong? For me, I have always felt a sense of not really belonging to a particular place. Perhaps I am just a restless wanderer? What are your thoughts? Am I the only one who feels like this? With that said, it does not mean I am unhappy or discontent with this state of being :) After all, the only constant in life is change!

Slowly Falling

Feels like I've been in a whirlwind
Slowly but steadily getting out of control
Can't feel the ground beneath me
Calm the wind and the turmoil within
Chase away the dust and the debris
With You I find a place of rest
Solace for my tired mind and feet
Comfort for my weary mind
I'm grounded wherever you are

She followed him for a while
Driving wildly and tailgating
Weaving through traffic
Maintaining a close distance,
Lest she lost track of him
At every "STOP" sign she'd honk
Trying to get his attention
He'd put his blinkers on
Thinking "just go around me already, crazy person"
Until he got to my stop sign
She signaled for me to stop him
Out flew the little lady in a frenzy
To give her dear husband his packed lunch!


That's how my morning went as I got to the bus stop to wait with my niece and nephew for their school bus. I love older couples! They give me hope! Love is still alive!

Get Acquainted With The Sisters!!!

Admit it, you've probably spent a lot of time thinking about your chest. How can you not, they are right there in front of you and there's no way getting around them! You've probably wondered at how to keep them nice and perky and strong but alas! Gravity is no respector of "breastises". Apparently, cancer may not be either!

Fact- Breast cancer risk increases with age and every woman is at risk

Fact- Men can get breast cancer though it is rare

Fact- More women of African decent have lower survival rate from breast cancer so sister, get acquainted with your sisters(boobies)!

Quite recently, I was watching the news and there was a story about a research going on in Ghana on breast Cancer. Apparently, sometimes the gene or markers for breast cancer do not show up in mammograms especially in African American women and it was found that a section of the population (younger women, pre-menopausal) are more likely to be affected, This form is very aggressive and difficult to treat. It is known as Triple Negative Breast Cancer and is more likely to affect women with African Ancestry! Yikes! You can get the rest of the story here .

So go ahead, Feel Those Boobies purposefully once a month while in the shower! If you don't know how they feel how can you tell if something is not right!

Health Watch!!! -Stroke

Hi everyone, I figured since I'm about to start working again, I should share a few health tit bits with you. This has circulated on the world wide web and you may have read it before but do keep in mind that it is very important to know! It only takes a minute to read this...

A stroke is an interruption of the blood supply to any part of the brain. A stroke is sometimes called a "brain attack." Neurologist say that if they can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours, it is possible to totally reverse the effects of a stroke depending on what type... totally.

RECOGNIZING A STROKE -Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR .

Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify..-

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T * Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. It is sunny out today.)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediatelyand describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke ---Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue.. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other , that is also an indication that something might not be right.

Have a great weekend!!! Thanks so much for all the encouragement too! I really appreciate it! Hugs!

Journey to the South

I'm southward bound
My heart is doing somersaults in my chest
My mind is in chaos
My emotions know not which persona to take

I'm southward bound
I should, logically and realistically be glad
My home is going to be far away
'Cos he can not come with me yet

I'm southward bound
My heart is going to be left behind
'Cos that's where my home is
Will I ever call you home again?

I'm southward bound
I may not know what you will bring me
I may learn to love you
But never like my beloved home

Some of you may know that I have not worked for the past 2 years. Yep, have not been working a paid job since I got married but I got an offer in Texas! So I am beginning the long commute mentally and physically from Michigan, my beloved Michigan to Texas. I am apprehensive and anxious of what the future may hold for us but I trust that he who holds the future, already knows the plan He has for me! Please do keep the hubby and I in your prayers! Hopefully, I will bring you adventures from the southside!

~Birthday Thoughts~

Restless mind,
Wondering heart,
Choices to make,
Decisions unmade,
Another year is here,
Don't feel a day older!
Spiritually and personally,
Felt like I was 3 a while ago
Today, I feel 21
Hopefully, I look 18!
Whatever number I may be today,
I hope I made some impact in that time!

Another year, more grace!

Can't wait to eat cake! whoop, whoop!

Incomplete Doc.

I sat up with a jolt
Light bulb came on suddenly
A moment of realization
"I am a work in progress"

Was wondering what perfection was
Why it seems humanly impossible
To attain the unattainable
To be perfect in every sense of the word

Like a poem without a perfect ending
Like an essay to be submitted for a grade
I need constant editing
"I am a work in progress"

Epiphany at long last
I have been Saved!
Just as I do my typed work
Saved for constant editing

My "aha!" moment finally
Someday, the final work will be presented
Then, the work will be complete
Until then, I remain saved!
