Summer Time Here We Come!!!

My son is here and I am pumped and motivated to give him the summer of his life.  So, I am praying for strength early every morning because I am going to need it.  We have some things scheduled on the calendar so that should keep us busy for at least the first two months.  I love to spend time with the little one because he gives me my daily exercise.  I love to cook for him because he always cleans his plate....like mother, like son. LOL!  Summer time and GOT NOTHING ON US!!

Long Time...No Post...

OMG!!  I have been basking in God's Greatness this week.  I have decided to believe GOD!!  He said that we can do all things through him and sometimes I don't really understand it until I truly step out on faith.  I have made some decisions in my life that has already altered my destiny in a way that is leaning and depending totally on him.  Listen....I have no job, but yet he feeds me, clothes me, and pays my bills.  I have no husband but yet he sends the male persuasion my way just to let me know I can have a pure friendship without anything else.  I have wonderful children that love me.  I am really and truly blessed.  I have one more week to go with the break from chemo and then I start over.  GOD is doing a great thing and I am glad I am here to see it.  DO YOUR THANG GOD!!

Finally....

Its Friday and this was my last week of chemo.  I have a two week break that I have been looking forward too.  But the thing is.... whatever you think your body will follow.  I had a different time with chemo this week.  My body didn't respond as usual.  I knew it was because of me being so ready for it to end.  I have learned this week to allow God to set the pace not me.  By me rushing and being anxious my body was responding to that energy instead of the medicine being given.  So next time around which is after the two week break, I am going to make sure I don't allow myself to rush.  I have to let go and let God.  So to God be the PRAISE and GLORY!!!  I am taking my time for these two week. No RUSH....NO FUSS!!!

The Last Week....for right now...

This is the last week of chemo for me.  After this week I have a 2 week break.  I am so excited!!  I finally get to sleep in late.  I would get up early to try and get the chemo early so I can have the rest of the day to do whatever I wanted to do.  So, this week I plan on going to Dallas and set up shop.  My plan is to move by August.  The little one will be in the First Grade.  I cant miss any of that.  I remember each child going to the first grade for the first time.  Its like they feel so grown up and independent. The month of June is going to be a busy one but a blessed one all at the same time.

One More Week.....

Okay folks..I have one more week of chemo and then I finally get a break.  I have been doing chemo everyday for 5 weeks.  It was all in all a great experience.  I met some great people and of course I get to learn more and more about my body.  I know that chemo in the morning is a good thing...chemo after 12:00 is a not so good thing.  I would like to thank great nurses that take care of my every need, even when I come in starving.  They seem to see it on my face.  Mona Lisa would you like a lunch??  Yes, thank you I say.  They are great!  I will miss them.  Oh yea, I no longer take the steroids that was blowing me up like a balloon.  Praise God!!

PS Just two of my closest friends....Thanks for everything guys!!

Three Blessings From God!!

Last night I attended a Banquet for Elijah, my middle son, and it was phenomenal.  I was sitting there skinning and grinning like a chess cat when it was time for him to receive his award.  He was honored in the National Football and College Hall of Fame.  Wow, what an honor and just to think that my oldest son Kirk was honored with that same award when he was a senior in high school.  My boys are the highlights of my life.  I love them so dearly.  I never had any major problems out of them...because I think they know that their mother was CRAZY!!  No, just kidding.  Kirk set the pace and Elijah is carrying the torch and Khafre will bring it home.  I have faith in God first and I know he will bless the rest.  Promote your children.  Let them know that they are all that and a bag of chips.  This world is cruel so let them know...if no one else believes in them .... Momma Does!!  Word from your Mother!

Happy Mother's Day!

Wow!  What a weekend.  I talked to my oldest Kirk on the phone, I spent time with the middle son Elijah all day on Sunday, and spent time with the baby boy Khafre on Saturday.  I feel so complete right now.  I love my kids from the bottom of my heart and sometimes I just have to stop and pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming.  I have great boys.  I never had any trouble out of them.  PRAISE GOD for that!!  So boys this post is actually for you....Thank you for helping me be the best mom I could be.  I love YOU!!

Distractions....Again??

Okay, so the weekend was over and I knew I had to get to the hospital early to get chemo because Mondays are very busy.  So, I wake up with a praise spirit that wouldn't let me leave my apartment until after 9am.  So, by the time I got to the hospital it was about 10am.  Well, they need blood work done on Mondays....did I think about that...NO.  The blood work had a waiting room full of people.  So needless to say I didn't finish with blood work until about 12pm.  Then I go to the infusion center for the chemo and they tell me that they are still waiting on the blood work results.  Finally at around 3pm they tell me my WHITE BLOOD CELL COUNT is LOW!!  No wonder I spent an extra 2 hours at the house praising God. This wasn't what I expected.....
