Somethings we forget not because they are unimportant, but we just blank out on them (Sorry Holly and Lucas! Happy late Birthdays!). Other things we remember whether we want to or not. They just pop into our heads, without regard to where we are or what we are doing.
Last night Robert said I missed you today. I asked why…he just shrugged and said the time of year. I nodded and said yeah. You see folks four years ago I was laying in a quarantined bed with the CDC looking at me because they couldn't figure out that they had given me hot flashes, but Robert didn't know if I was going to make it. He said that he never questioned my making it until he was in that hospital room. The only thing to comfort him…the Olympics. So you see this time of this year is a reminder to Robert of a lonely time in his life….mine well I've said it before…Feb 28th. Four years ago this Sunday was the roughest day of my life, the devil kept beating down my spirit ( I could barely walk an…


Well, Eme got slapped last night by accident by a very sweet little girl. I was walking upstairs when I noticed another little girl (who is a head taller than her) patting Eme. Now the story goes that the taller girl has a problem with self confidence. Her Mom says she always has and when we first started practicing she would get upset. I would always try and make a special point to help her. I would tell her about how proud I was and point out the good things she would (sometimes giving her a thumbs up and smiling at her if she would see me on the bleachers), and if she started crying I would try and talk to her and tell her how great she was at what she was doing and tell her she was tuff and I knew she could do it. Now I did this as a parent….I am not one of their coaches, but cannot keep my mouth shut! Haha! Imagine that. Well, at practice she made my night. Here I was looking down on the court and I see Eme looking like she was crying. As I stated before, the taller gir…


The cuz sent me this and I loved it….it was long, so I pulled out the parts that meant the most to me….

He is the First and Last,
The Beginning and the End!
He is the keeper of Creation and the Creator of all!
He is the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all times.
He always was, He always is, and He always will be ...
unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated, and never Undone!
He was bruised and brought healing!
He was pierced and eased pain!
He was persecuted and brought freedom!
He was dead and brought life!
He is risen and brings power!
He reigns and brings Peace!
The world can't understand him,
The armies can't defeat Him,
The schools can't explain Him, and The leaders can't ignore Him.
Herod couldn't kill Him, The Pharisees couldn't confuse Him,  and The people couldn't hold Him!
Nero couldn't crush Him, Hitler couldn't silence Him,
The New Age can't replace Him, and "Oprah" can't explain Him away!
When I fall, He lifts me up!


We had a great weekend with the girls doing great in the games. We were very proud. What more can I say…they hustled, shot, drove, rebounded, and fought. Sounds like the game is preparing them for life.
God Bless!


Sometimes we fall, whether it be on the ice, snow, in the middle of a four lane highway (yes, I have done that), in a friendship, or in our faith. So lets look at my spill in the road… you think I laid there and curled up like a turtle, to let traffic run over me? No, I got up, bruised, bleeding and battered….and I went on like it never had happened. Did I learn from it…oh yeah. Once I got to my destination did I check out all my injuries and doctor them for them to heal….yep. Are friendships like that….do sometimes they fall and we need to start over after brushing the hurt feelings aside….yes, forgiving ourselves and our friend in the process….yes.
Faith is like that as well, even MORE so. When we fall in our faith, we must get up, clean our mind up of it, accepting what has happened, trusting in God, and continue. We cannot lay in the road waiting to be hit. We must refortify our faith. We have been forgiven of our sins. We can forgive ourselves and continue on the…


1st…let me say Happy Anniversary to Robert. No, it's not our wedding anniversary, but a mucho important day to us…the day we started dating. Yep, today makes 17 years. Wow! Can yall believe he has put up with me this long? 2nd… Happy Birthday on Sunday to Jess! Love ya! And 3rd… thank yall. Sunday I will be 4 years old by Vandy standards. Yep 4 years considered cancer free!
Now onto the funny stuff. Yall know how I've said that Eme has this spiritual connection, and it really amazes me that all of us just take it as the truth, without doubting. It's never till after the situation that we realize we didn't question. With the girls, Ele is the voice of reason, Lex is the concerned one and Eme is the daredevil one. So it amazes us that Ele never questioned the situation. Well.. Ele and Eme lay in the bed with me until Robert comes upstairs, then they go to their beds and Robert tucks them in. So I'm in the middle Eme on my right and Ele on my left (so p…


April had a great 30th birthday party! Ele is sick, so please say a prayer. Eme got 8 of the 12 points scored in her game. Hope yall have a great day!
God Bless!
