Don’t Be Mad At Ya Girl!



I know I’m in the dog house for leaving y’all hanging. I had every intention of updating you guys on my health status as soon as possible. Somebody lied and told me I was Superwoman. I think the heffa was me. I mean, who actually thinks that major surgery isn’t going to slow them down?

Anyway, I’m happy to report that I am cancer free! *Internally jumps up and down with glee while doing a holy dance.* You don’t know how happy I was to wake up from that operation without a single chemo port in me. The first thing I did after thanking God that I even woke up, was check for ports. When I didn’t find any, I almost couldn’t believe it. Just to confirm, I asked the nurses. I might have been high as a kite and speaking gibberish, because they looked at me like I was crazy. Eventually, a resident came over and gave me the good news. I’ve never been so relieved in my life.

I took a video for y’all the day after surgery  while I was still in the hospital. It will never EVER see the light of day. Talk about a hot mess. I didn’t even know I could be so gray. And so swollen. Not a good look, to say the least. I stayed in the hospital for a total of about 32 hours, then I got sent home despite my protests.

I’ll post later on the recovery process, but suffice it to say that it sucked. I had some setbacks, but I made it through. In a few more weeks I’ll be cleared to resume normal activities. In the meantime and in between time, I’m enjoying the housework restrictions and copious episodes of Parks and Recreation.

I so appreciate all the love I received in the form of flowers, cards, well wishes, prayers and phone calls. I’m truly blessed!




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!
