.10 cents

June 2017 10:35 AM 

Have you ever stumbled upon a coin on the ground? How many times can you recall this happening in your entire life (up to this point of course)? Do you cherish that moment in time or do you rush past it? 

Whenever I think of coins laying on the ground I wonder who did it belong to? Where did it come from? Did the person that dropped it lose or need that last cent to make a bill? Do I even really need it?

I know there was a time in my life that I was .10 cents short and MAN if I would have found it on the ground I would have cried. (I did end up finding it in the house and I did cry) Just as much a coin along your path can have significant meaning. The very path you are on right at this very second is so very important.

How you alone view it is what matters. 

We all have our "coins" weather it be good or bad that glimmer and catch our attention. What you do with the coins is what makes the journey rich. Just because it is tough right now - doesn't mean that there isn't value. You may just have to dig deeper or stop and look around to find the details you are looking for.

Remember, what you place worth in will shine more than you could ever imagine.

Find a New Journey Each Day 







To My Handsome Papi

So we are here again. . . 17 birthdays down, 100 left to celebrate. I can't begin to tell you how much you mean to me or how proud I am to be your wife. You have literally had my back from sitting by the bungalows to helping me #BeastMode it up while having the most beautiful baby girl in the world! Seeing you grow from a boy to a man then adding on Husband and now Daddy *you just keep getting sexier. You lead me with more strength, heart, grace and mercy each day. You are not a perfect man but I am not a perfect woman either so together with God what can't we do, overcome, set fire and water too?! It's crazy to think that this is just the beginning of the next wave of journeies to come. You make me a better person, you ease the load (even when I dump more things in). I enjoy your craziness, randomness, Kingdom heartness. Your love for Jesus Christ makes me fall harder for you each day you walk in your purpose. The enemy tried but God prevailed. 

HAPPY DAY OF BIRTH TO THE MVP OF MY LIFE, MY BEST FRIEND FOREVER AND A DAY, MR. Ya JaKetted AKA Papi, Daddy, Handsome, MY favorite Husband.   

Today is literally Day 1 of our new beginning - let's get it you fine like wine, man of mine. *oh no your cheese ball stuff is rubbing off on me.

To My Beautiful Wife (Happy Birthday)

God has blessed me with an amazing woman of God (you), i am so proud to be your husband protector, lover and best friend. You are my biggest inspiration in life seeing you grow from child to a young lady now as an adult makes me push towards greatness daily. Watching you as a mother makes me so proud, the way you take care of our cub brings a smile not only to my face but to my heart. My love always remember that greatness lives in you and you can do all things, don't allow nothing to hold you back from the vision God put in you when you was a little girl. I can't wait to see where God takes us 5,10,15 years from now on this beautiful journey. Continue to be bold and courages, fearless and all you do. Know that i love you and i have since the first moment i laid eyes on you in 7th grade and every moment with you is priceless. I will always be here for you to help conquer every battle you face in life to be your go to partner and your stability when you feel off balance. I will push you to give birth to your wildest dreams just like the birth of our lioness. 




Happy Birthday My Bride

Always yours Super Onee

365 Day of Thanks

Each day I do my best to remember that I woke up with life and breathe in my lungs, while some are not as fortunate as I am. I don’t just use “Thanksgiving” to show my appreciation. I do my best to live a life in the state of gratefulness. This allows me to forgive, listen, love harder than before, be joyful and have faith to carry on through whatever comes my way. It sparks a light of hope when everything seems to be spiraling out of control.    

 Here are 5 things I do daily to keep my heart thankful

 ·      Find details in the tiniest of things that are going on in my world that are positive.

When I am having an off day or I have to check my attitude, I find beauty in the details around me.

·      Journal, snap a photo, or your Notepad in your phone to jot down your thoughts daily.

This for me has been a lifesaver, especially when I need to encourage myself. I am able to go back to journal entries and pictures and get the boost that I am not where I once was.

·      If someone feeds you negativity don’t eat it or pass it back out to someone else.

I have had this happen to me in the parking lot, with a family member, my spouse, at the grocery store, work, church, etc. You don’t have to take everything that people dish out.

·      Humble yourself and know that you are not perfect and also that, others around will not be either.

Pretty self-explanatory, we all don’t have it together.

·      Give compliments to people, smile and walk in love.

If I like your shirt, or hairstyle I am going to tell you. Not just give you that funny awkward stare. I will smile at you, even though I get funny stares back. I will forgive and love you even if you wrong me. On a side note *Walking in love is more that just something you do at church or after payday. It to me is a direct reflection of your heart.

So, what can you do to find what fuels thankfulness in your life? This year is about to be up, don’t let another day pass without realizing how blessed you truly are. 

See you in two weeks
