People love to tell you who you are, when they're still trying to figure themselves out. Crazy as it is, I LOVE when people try to fit me in a box or set limitations on me, because I "Houdini" them every time! I always escape their traps and leave them wondering how I managed to … Continue reading Because they said I couldn’t
As one year ends and another begins, I look forward to new beginnings and more blessings, but dread hearing from the people who are "waiting for January 01", to do x, y and z.

Sometimes I can't stand the fact that I'm so "impulsive", as one of my students so kindly (insert sarcasm) put it. "Mrs. B., sometimes I feel like you don't have any patience with us, because you seem to be in a hurry a lot", was the words my student boldly said to me. For once, … Continue reading Can’t hardly wait
"Hey, do me a favor. Ask the guy in the "Communications Department" (not his true office...I don't know if he reads here or not) if he has a girlfriend", were the words I stated to my friend, Jeri.

In this particular case, God is our refuge. I hadn't posted in … Continue reading He’s bigger
"I've met rejection many times in my life, and although I'm not a "fan" of it, I still respect it! I don't think anyone can say with honesty, that they like being told "no"! Whether it be "no", you didn't get the job, "no", you didn't get accepted into our school or the dreadful, "no", … Continue reading Don’t reject rejection
Being the bigger person sucks at times! The pressure is always on you to take the high road, when all you want to do is take your tormentor down the horrendous road, they've dragged you on for so long. I'm angry, my blood boils and I'm doing everything within my power, to stop my heart … Continue reading When your peace of mind is worth more than the heartbreak
Ever felt like you couldn't breathe, no matter how much you gasped for air? You probably felt like a fish out of water, suffocated or caged almost, because the pressures of life was just too overwhelming. You're tired, exasperated and struggling to survive and keep up.

"Honey, your father and I have something to tell you. You're going to be a big sister"!
