I’ve Been M.I.A…. Here’s Why

Hey y’all, I’ve been missing in action for the last week couple of weeks due to a family emergency that sent me into war mode. I gladly signed up to be a front line soldier. My oldest sister Tiffany was admitted to ICU after an emergency room visit that saved her life. I won’t go into all the details, but I know that God spared her and I’ll be forever grateful for His grace in doing so.

Needless to say, blogging, tweeting, answering emails or even just writing has been the farthest thing from my mind. So if you’ve reached out to me in any form over the last couple of weeks and I haven’t responded, charge it to my head and not my heart. I hope to get back in the swing of things in a few weeks, but for now it’s taking all the energy I can muster to work my full-time job, take care of my family and divide my time between Memphis and Dallas.

If you believe in the power of prayer please pray for my sister’s full recovery. She’s a wonderful single mother to my beautiful niece and awesome nephew, and she has much to live for. The road ahead will be challenging, but I know that God is with us and victory is on the horizon. We just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other on this journey of faith. I started a Go Fund Me donation page for Tiffany to help with expenses, as she will be out of work for quite a while. Click here to read more about my fabulous sister and the place where her journey begins. Even if you can’t donate, sharing the fundraiser page on your social media platforms could have a huge impact. Whatever you do, PRAYER is much appreciated.

Much love to you all!

  1. Oh goodness, I am praying for you, your family and Tiffany! Miracles happen and I believe in the power of prayer! If you need anything, please let me know! *HUGS*


  2. wow – your sister is in my prayers, wish her for a quick recovery…I will ask for her special prayer in the synagogue. If there is anything else I can to help, please don’t hesitate!


  3. I will hold Tiffany’s beautiful smile in my meditations and prayers, and have every faith that her inner strength and love for her family will see her through. You are a wonderful sister. Don’t forget to take care of yourself in this difficult time, too, and ask for help when it’s needed…


    • Thanks Sunshine, I know that her love for family and fighting spirit are what have gotten her this far along with God’s grace. I’m trying to remember to take care of me! I tell myself that it’s the only way I can be any good to anyone else.

    • Thank you Ann! I was planning to surprise you at the Writer’s Block meeting on the 21st, but God had other plans…hopefully I can see you on one of these trips to Dallas and give you a few copies of my book for the group.


I want to hear from you!
