Let us continue to see unity and love

He fought for our freedom, he died so we can have more justice. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood for what we feel we deserve, freedom of speech and peace. Not once did he say we shouldn’t be stifled by the color of our skin or nationality. Grateful for the fighting spirit of him!

I’m only going on 50, I wasn’t born or thought of when he was here. My grandma used to talk of his speeches and the March on Selma. Some people remember or recall hearing about Bloody Sunday; hence the March on Selma. Walking over the same bridge Senator John Lewis marched as well and those who were there. A sense of calm as I experienced what feelings washed over those who encountered the police, fought back and lived to tell a heroic story!!!

The horizon of what we can accomplish

Let us not forget his words and what he went through. Let us not abandon the truth and carry resentment towards our fellow man. Let’s live, love and laugh.

Stay blessed and safe! Enjoy your day y’all 🌻😘

Do what you love

I’m hall monitoring but it’s for the kids man!!!

If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. This quote has been repeated and dishes out for years. It’s the truth though. If it wasn’t for my heart to teach and advocate, I would not be here! At all!! No substitute teacher, no playground monitor nothing. I’d ban myself from gaining more knowledge as a whole.

God knows I’m grateful for the opportunity to even stand alongside some great educators that help my children develop and grow into productive adults. So, sitting here until the bell rings, writing my lesson approach. I’ll talk to you guys later! Stay blessed peace and love ☮️🌻💕

It’s almost over

Good morning y’all! So sorry for the delay, I’ve been sick and working! The holidays roll up on us so fast every year and we say, oh wow, it’s Christmas AGAIN!

It’s Sunday! Still can’t believe it!

As I sit and reflect on this year, I’m grateful to have started doing substitute teaching and counseling my kiddos. They deal with me not seeing them and Ms. Cassandra is going to call and check on them! With that being said, communication rules!

If you say what you feel when you want, you fail to realize what the big picture is. Life is about being happy with your self. You are the only one who can make that a reality! Feelings of loneliness and depression hits hard about this time of year. I feel it. I miss my girls who are with their dad due to primary custody, my parents who died when I was 6, my friends who moved away. I could go on and on.

As we end the year and holiday season, let’s be mindful of how to treat others, self care and just listening. Take care lovies! From my family to yours,

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa 🕎🎄

Peace love and light to all!!!

I got the job!

Hey y’all! Long time no see! Anyhoo, I got the teaching job! I’m in the system to get assigned for classroom work. When I say I’m excited 😆 I totally am geeked!

Look like she speaking in tongues!

When I applied and mentioned it like 3 months ago, it was a dream. I waited for fingerprints and a background check. I prayed and started working the early elections. And right on time, like God’s plan, I got the email today that I’m finished processing!

As I transition into teaching, I’ll always stay vigilant about letting y’all know that I’m not perfect. Also, any comments or likes and dislikes help me grow! In every aspect of my lil life.

Just wanted to fill you guys in and…

Never give up!!

Love ya! Have a great rest of the week🌺😘

I’m sorry you guys Short and sweet

Hi everyone. I’ve been MIA and not writing. I’m on the verge of getting a substitute teacher position and working as PSR (psyc social rehabilitation) counselor.

Been trying to get here!

Even though it’s 2 jobs, one may outshine the other. Meaning, I may become a full time licensed teacher and work 40 hours a week. I may totally downsize and focus completely on my clients until I get my next degree and go into practice for myself. Lot of different avenues! Lot of decisions to be made.

👏🏾👏🏾

My mind is still trying to wrap around how did I get here? Welp, you asked and received! Those 2 scenarios could play out so successfully! Fingers crossed 🤞🏿 for real. I’ll still be able to spend time with my family, no abandonment of my marriage. Nada. I make my own schedule for both jobs. So, I’ll be able to go on vacation also. What a blessing!!

I’m grateful for you guys! Thank you for reading and I’ll be back 🫶🏿✌🏾peace and love 🌷

It’s been one heckuva week

Hey y’all! It’s been a while. I know. Here in Vegas, we’ve had rain, hail and wind. Sounds like summer!

Image of palm tree getting drenched!

Living here and dealing with water droughts, bad news and the fate of the people leaves you dizzy. Strike up the violins 🎻 But do not fear! We’ve got some student loan relief!!!! I am going in the record to say…if and when they send the info about what’s been discharged, my credit score will increase. I be able to get a house with my VA loan and get a better running car! My husband won’t have to work as hard and our interest rate will be locked. Some say I shouldn’t be glad. Some say be mad that the people have to pay it back later. It’s billions! It’s so much! It’s too much too fast. Please stop ✋ we’ve been here before. Stimulus checks and extra food stamps came right on time about a year or two ago. Remember that? Some folks made TOO much money to receive the handouts and now are hollering HALT! What about the poor people that really need it?

We see that the government doesn’t mind printing money and sending it off to wars, humanitarian relief for other countries. What about US us? Our welfare system is broken and they keep it afloat by implementing welfare to work programs that people dodge to keep from working altogether. We’re paying for it. Prisoners who eat three square meals and get a warm blanket and rec time. We’re paying for it. Give ‘em the chair so we don’t have to pay for it. But we are. Who’s paying for the cocktail to injects o you can end the life? Uhhh…US!

Okay, I’m done. I’m just tired of the rat race. Tired of always protecting my view of how I stand. I wish I could get my 40 acres and a mule so I can retire! This is getting old fast. All we can do is pray for better days and that we can get through this unscathed. No argument for the people that think they’re right. Because in the end, we all have to pay it back. Keep your heads up and have a great heckuva weekend lovies 🤗🌺

Until next time, peace ☮️ and blessings

Strange horizons

Hey y’all! I’ve been MIA and loving the people I follow on WordPress! But, I must say, we are in a weather quandary.

Looking west from midtown

Monsoon season has been so gracious to Vegas. We need it! This calls for comfort food and open curtains. That’s what I’ll be doing. We haven’t seen this much rain in years.

As far as what’s happening next, us in the valley take la heart. We don’t what the skies will do with in the next few hours, we hope for downpours! Rainbows 🌈

It’s raining over there! Towards Pahrump Red Rock area

As a native, I’ve seen it come and go. Dry, dusty and hot! Wet, slick roads and floods. Be careful and mindful today. The roads can be horrible if you need to run errands in this. Know your direction and get where you need to go safely.

The word for today is slow. Slow down, be kind and stay dry.

Until next time lovies, peace ✌️ and blessings 🌷🌷
