Fruit of my labor

The first tomato for me to enjoy after putting in the work for it


Everyday is a day

Wake up and shake up your life into today

A new you that walks away from the old disgusting and disappointing you of yesterday…

A true you that forgives your yestersday for forsaking every goal it didn’t accomplish.. 

A better you today, because the wisdom that your yesterday earned you to increase your better today and will continue to proliferate tomorrow in an incredible way. 

Everyday is a day, but it is always that day of new that brings forth a better you!! 

Happiness: Why Are You So Hard to Find?

Where are you?  Where are you? Where have you been? Why do I have to fervently beg for you over and over again? 

Do you really exist? If so, why are there always red nail prints in my open fist? 

Where are you? Is there another route I can take in capturing you?

 I’m drowning in a bayou without a boat or water that’s clear blue. I only have this life jacket that is stained with the mental anguish and saturated with memories of pain. I can feel battle patches and scars from the last war I fought in seeking you.

Damn it happiness, where are you? 

 This bayou is a dark, lonely, and confusing place. I hate being here in the middle of no where without knowing how to start. Everything is all over the place and I’m torn apart. 

Where are you? I can’t see your face

Where are you? Where is this great peace of mind that was once in my heart? Don’t you understand I considered that to be your greatest part?

Where do I begin? I need to start

I can’t seem to find you and yes I’m torn the hell apart

Pushing my way through this bayou ain’t easy, nor is getting to you; especially when I have absolutely no clue.

I pray.. 

Oh Now I see you!! 

You are hidding in these shattered pieces of my peace that only God has the glue.  

And for that reason, I will continuously seek you, because I know Him to be true


My nose is red and raw from all the holding, blowing, and wiping. My lips are so sore and dry; and, they burn from rubbing them dry after a sneeze or two.

When You Are Who You Think You Are

Listening to the Rapper Drake and he said something that I thought was so profound..  “You Know it’s real when you are who you think you are.”

Accepting who you are and where are in life allows you to focus and go further… 

Getting Something Done the Day You Set Out To Do It is Called Success… 

I was at Walmart yesterday and purchased 7 small Garden Mums for $1.00 a piece. I buy them every year. Usually I purchase the huge pots of Mums and they usually die a week or two after Labor Day. 

I decided to try something different this year.. I’m going to nurture them while they are small and create a home for them in something I’ve always wanted for my patio since I have an iron railing balcony, an English Horse Trough. 

I never knew what the formal name was for this type of planter, but I was blessed to find out when I set my goals and accomplished the task of purchasing the English Horse Trough and placing my new babies in their new cradle and successfully created their new home based on my design for them…
