As many of you know I am homeschooling my kids and my niece. The last couple of weeks we have been talking about plants. We discussed what plants need in order to grow healthy and the process of how plants grow. We planted some sunflower seeds in small containers and sat them in our kitchen windowsill. The kids have all been amazed at how fast they seem to be growing right before our eyes. My oldest daughter said, ” We are taking good care of our plants mommy.” 🙂
Our little science project really got me to thinking of ways in which I can facilitate opportunities to grow in my marriage and family life. The Holy Spirit reminded me that we must nurture our marriages just like flowers. Much like plants our spouses and kids need to receive some very specific things from us in order to grow and to…

So AWESOME. Indeed, God IS love!
Through my experience in relationships I have come to one conclusion: The only Love that is truly Love is God.
I once believed that I in myself had Love to give to another person. That if I only did certain things did my best to be a good partner the relationship would be mutually good and encouraging for life. But I came to the conclusion that God is Love, and only in seeking Him first, am I ever capable of truly loving someone else. I have no love to give another person, except for what comes out of a face pointed completely in the direction of God. And in that way two people in a relationship are united by encouraging each other to both be pointed toward God, who unites all of us with His Love.
Whether you’ve noticed or not that I haven’t blogged in awhile, let’s stick to the fact. I HAVEN’T!*chuckle*
I have been around though. A little here, a bit there…and I’m STILL here. Just not so verbal but rather more observant. Taking mental notes. Some of my life findings have left me downright speechless!
Nevertheless, I am alive & well. Still laughing, living, learning & listening to my husband, kids, friends, associates, and last but first, God.
Boy, is my work cut out!!
Hellooooooo!! It’s been a while away for me. Quite a lil gap of time between the time I’d last posted and now.
So I’ll take just a wee bit of time to update you on a few things.
My husband and I have been blessed with a new truck for our family. Now we have two vehicles and more comfort for long trips with the kiddies! God is SOOOO GOOD!
My eldest daughter, Sanai, had a birthday last month. She’s a chipper 4 yr old now!
Her twin brother & sister are figuring milestones awesomely! A while lot more communication. Even some I understand!*winky wink*. More teeth for lil Jewel. Not so much for Jowell lol. We’ve begun potty training. Jewel’s grasping the concept well. Jowell wants no parts lol. THIS process is going to be entertaining to say the least.
It looks like the Delaware Valley saw the last of snow months ago. Days are getting longer and brighter with some warmer. COME ONNNNNN SPRING!
I’m looking forward to many beautiful days to enjoy life. The life in The Everyday Entertainment of A Wife, Mommy, Friend, & *sticks tongue out* Weirdee!!

K. If you could be anyone in history who would it be and why? Hmmmm…can I come back to that one? Need more time to think about that.
Presently, I’m on the road with my husband, John. He has a traditional “9 to 5” job and is a professional musician but those that know him well know that he missed his “calling” as a comedian.
The guy is NUTS!!!
He’s driving. Oh, forgot to say that this is a 2 hour drive. Just us. No kids. But the laughter going on in this vehicle is VERY MUCH child-like!!
We are huge lovers of…OLDIES MUSIC. See? I knew it! Get your head out of that filthy gutter!! I wasn’t going to say that! *side eye* ( villainous laughter). Cut it out Stoni!!
Anyhoo, the music play list going on is wonderful and John’s sing along, included in the music package, is no doubt PRICELESS!
I mean, from Chaka Khan to The Delfonics, Isaac Hayes, and the GREAT Curtis Mayfield. This man is going IN! Hand motions and all! Okay, I did a few moves with The Delfonics’ “Didn’t I Blow Your Mind”. Oh Lord, help me! He just put on “Backstabbers” by The O’Jays!! He basically yelled the whole first line!! And clapped the break down of the music. I LOVE it!!
If he’s not acting like the radio disc jockey of that time or the late Don Cornelius (R.i.p.) introducing the next featured artist our group, his aim to please you with laughter, accompanied by tears never falls short. I PROMISE. The perk of being his wife is this comes with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE! I’m a blessed and favored woman I tell ya!!
John is making this ride worth my every while and the best part of it all is…WE’RE ABOUT TO STOP AND GET SOMETHING TO EAT!
He really LOVES me!! Peace ya’ll!!!!!!lol
