Happy Birthday to my baby boy

Today is a very special day.  My youngest son (middle child) turns 5 “all my fingers” years-old.  I’d like to wish a very special Happy Birthday to my Baby Boy!  We’ve been counting this day down since Christmas.

Oh my goodness!!! This morning’s worship service was absolutely awesome!!! I was definitely in the right place at the right time for the right message.

I just love when I hear an inspiring message because it motivates me to make changes and opens up my mind to ways to move to the next level in my prayers, praise and purpose.

Spirit of Thankfulness

I’m posting my Thankful Thursday blog a day early because I will be enjoying my day with my wonderful extended family. My prayer is that you all have a wonderful holiday as well.

Let’s not let the spirit of Thanksgiving last for one day or one season. As hectic as life gets sometimes, it does help to sit down and count your blessings to realize just how blessed you are. I think back at where I was emotionally,
