Blogging 1 year already!!

I have just notice that my first entry was around Thanksgiving of last year since I have been blogging. As I look back on the year I have encountered major changes in my life. TNeill left for college, I am divorced, in a 1 bedroom apt. and trying to understand how are we to grown because of our changes.
I look as life dishes out so many gravels we can either sit and remain miserable in our despair or get up and turn those gravels into solid rocks. I have decided that in spite of the curves and bump I will move onward, forwards and upwards. I expect great blessings, open doors, opportunities that will propel me to another level. One that shows me how to live and enjoy the victories, to understand the defeats and correct the mistakes.
As this 2nd year of blogging begins, I pray that something I will say would be positive, encouraging and maybe life changing for someone.

A nice day

Thanksgiving was nice. TNeill stayed home in bed, she was sick and Tnoya and I enjoyed dinner with friends. It was nice to fellowship with old friends and just sit and laugh. It was nice to talk old stories and not have to worry about anything. A nice quiet evening. I love to be with friends who accept me as I am. Of cause Winston was mention, wondering where he went if any. I know he loves turkey and stuffings but he has cut so much people that he must have stayed home. How sad, no meal of thanksgiving, no friend to go to, no family how sad, how sad, but that's the "bed he made".
I am thankful, so very thankful because in spite of the hardship of divorce this year I am alive and have my girls and looking forwards to see what God has in store for me.
Ready, Set Go!!!!!!!!

My girls-that's Thanksgiving to me

Today was a good day, no work and both daughters came over. Tneill is home from school and Tnoya took the day off. Nothing is better than family and to spend time with my girls is the Thanksgiving I love. We go over to a friend tomorrow and I am looking forward to the food, I cook "nothing".
As life goes on, one can only hope that God will open doors to happiness and blessings. I know that God will do it for my girls, they are really good girls who deserve the best in life.

A new Thanksgiving

It is almost Thanksgiving, I am not sure how to feel as this will be my first Thanksgiving not as a family. This is one of many things that will change due to a divorce.I have my children with me but no longer a husband, we are not even friends.
Life is so different and every day a new challenge but I will make it, I am a strong black Christian woman who trust in God. I don't know what Christmas will hold but I guess it will be one Christmas gift less.
