Someone Who Soared Against Prejudice...

In honor of African American history month, I would like to share the real life story of an amazing man named Vivien Thomas, who I am personally grateful for even though I never met him, or could, since he passed away two years after I was born. I am grateful for this man because it […]

 

February is Heart Month

It’s that time of year again, when parents of heart warriors like me try to raise awareness of the most common birth defect there is; Congenital Heart Defects…   Yes, February 7th through the 14th is CHD awareness week.   Shouldn’t everyday be a day of awareness? I have watched my daughter nearly die so […]

 

Jesus is the reason for the season!

Yes, we have all heard about the war on Christmas, but why is it there? Is the word Christmas and all of the Christ centered songs of old about the holiday really THAT frightening to people, that I have to be afraid to say and sing them? Schools all across America are banning carols written […]

 

Offended? Join the Club!

As a woman, as a mom, as a military spouse, as a Christian, as an American, I get offended nearly every single day. And I wouldn’t want it any other way. Why you say? Why would I prefer being offended over having everyone else agree with me, or for everyone to be so scared of […]

The most ironically funny part of your title for the most over portioned sale day, is that it is called […]

 

For my oldest daughter...

I have Autism and I have a voice. It may be silent, or sometimes too loud, but it is precious and deserves to be heard. I have Autism and I have feelings. I may not show them in response right away, but they are there. I have Autism and I have a strong mind. I […]

 

Diagnosed…

I cried, but sometimes tears are not enough and when I was diagnosed, I just wanted to scream. Last week, I found out that my thyroid disease is worse than what I originally thought. I have Hashimoto’s disease, which, thankfully the treatment is simple with Hypothyroidism, a single pill in the morning is all it […]

 

Sad but hopeful...

Last night was so grim, because someone beautiful left this world. My Grammy is a phenomenal woman, I say that she ‘is’ even though she passed away, because I believe in God’s purpose and I know that she is not gone for good, but in heaven. Not only did my Grammy help raise me, she […]
