I Wonder

”There are times I wonder, why can’t I wear white after Labor Day?” That Twizzler ad asks a very pertinent question😉. Who made these ’rules’ and why do we feel obligated to subject ourselves to them. That’s just one of the many rules the fashion police academy has laid out for us. Of course, that’sContinue reading “I Wonder”

Fully Known

Just a reminder – We are fully known and unconditionally loved by the One who took the time to knit us together in our mother’s womb. You are enough – I am enough! We can do nothing to make Him love us anymore or any less. However, He doesn’t control our will and our choices.Continue reading “Fully Known”

She’s Royal

Another post about the recent weekend with my high school graduating class! In my previous post we celebrated the boys who became men in their own rights. We all know that behind every great man is a royal queen or princess. You don’t have to agree with me, but our creator designed it that way.Continue reading “She’s Royal”

From Boyz 2 Men

This is the 2nd post capturing some moments of a recent meet-up with some members of my high school graduating class. The men of the ‘Blue and Gold ‘ showed up and surely added their flavor to this amazing weekend. There may have been a bit of distinguished grayness or smooth baldness, but they wereContinue reading “From Boyz 2 Men”

And So We Laughed

This weekend more than 30 of us from our high school graduating class got together for a 3-day ‘Lyming’ [ A Caribbean island slang for hanging out or chilling with friends. Can also refer to middle-aged people having a good time trying to recapture their youth😂.] And yes, we are officially middle-aged! No one wasContinue reading “And So We Laughed”

If I had Known

Maybe you are like me – wasted time crying over things, people and situations seen through broken lens. I never wanted to migrate to the US. I resisted it for years, giving my dad every reason possible to delay the process. Loving my life the way it was – I couldn’t or wouldn’t see beyondContinue reading “If I had Known”

Broken Hearts

A very poignant question was asked by Ms. Whitney: ‘Where Do Broken Hearts Go? Can they find their way home?’ Heart break isn’t just a thing of the 21st century, it has been around since the dawn of time. The first mother, Eve, experienced unimaginable heart break when one of her sons killed the other.Continue reading “Broken Hearts”

What Lies Ahead

Recently I had a moment with my students to talk about life plans- the changes, regrets, and lessons learned. In reflection I realized that apart from my walk with God, nothing about my life at present was ever part of my ‘vision board’. Not where I lived, where I work, what I do for aContinue reading “What Lies Ahead”

Her Name Was Summer

This is a ‘Feel-good Friday’ post. I’m almost sure my son will not read this- so here goes😊! I have always been intrigued with the innocence of childhood. The simple things that can bring a smile to child’s face. As I reflect on my childhood, I marvel at the how much fun we had doingContinue reading “Her Name Was Summer”

Turbulence

It is said that turbulence in flight is mainly caused by a disturbance or disruption in the airflow around the airplane. Sometimes it may be light; at times it may be violent. One source also defines turbulence as a sudden violent shift in the air flow. This reminds me of life sometimes. If you areContinue reading “Turbulence”
