THE TIES THAT BIND US Someone help me understand: Scenario one: How can anyone have a child and not do anything and everything within their means to take care of that child, support that child, provide for that child? It is our responsibility as a parent to do all those things for our children and […]

Hey, all! It’s been some time since we last chatted, but I hope all is well with everyone. This blog will be a bit lengthy, so please bear with me. What worrying too much can do to you? How many of us are worriers? How many are not aware you are a worrier? For a […]

Hey, guys! How is everyone doing? Another week of sharing what’s in my heart. I was watching the series “The Designated Survivor” with Keifer Sutherland (President Tom Kirkman) my Jack Bow-Wow. He’s not my President when I heard those words, I immediately thought of our current president. In this TV series, this man was sworn in […]

JE NE SAIS QUOI Feeling a lil something-something / feeling some kind of way Receiving compliments used to be something that was hard to accept. I have always been so critical of myself and sometimes negative about many things in my life. However, over the years I have grown and become a more mature positive […]

Lots going on theses days. Let’s get to the updates. Last movie I saw. My daughter and I went to see “Badder Santa”, was not what I expected. The first Bad Santa was hilarious but this second edition gave a few chuckles. As I have always stated some movies are just not meant to be […]

September 2016 Been struggling with writing the children’s book that was requested by my granddaughter. I have written the book and now currently in the editing phase.

Who would have thought becoming a writer/author would be the scariest experience? My thoughts were why would I write, would anyone read my book? My mind was racing. Who do I contact, where should I start, where can I find help? Can I truly be a good writer, am I cut out for this?
We will soon find out as I continue my journey of writing, learning, editing and publishing.
For almost two decades, I procrastinated with making a decision to write or not to write.
Slightly Bruised and a Little Broken: A Memoir
Mother paid close attention and noticed everything that went on with me as a child. However, she was unaware that her step dad, Liam, was molesting her ten-year-old child. I was living out of town with my grandparents. My mother was not there.
I don’t blame her for not being aware; she thought I would be safe with my grandparents.
Back then, I could never understand the need to latch onto something, the need to feel loved, the need to feel needed and the need to be saved. I also never realized the power of a simple touch. Now, looking back on my years as a child, I understand and I have learned the importance of listening to the whispering of my heart.
