    Moms Get Sick Too


    Swollen feet, abdomen, and hands.
    Weight gain.
    Hair loss.
    Joint paint.

    ... A few of the symptoms I've experienced over the last 13 years.

    I don't talk about my fight against chronic kidney disease, but I'm fighting. Daily.

    Early on it was devastating, exhausting, painful, and I was pissed that something like this could happen to me. I've had good days, bad ones, but now (in spite of it all) all is well. 

    I have not fought this illness alone. My family has been fighting with me, and my children have seen a side of me I never wanted them to witness. But, I've turned it into lessons I hope they never forget.

    I was able to share my thoughts on how to deal with being sick, from the perspective of motherhood, with an amazing organization called People Hope Tribe.

    Water For Your Seed... A Meditation For Your Soul


    There’s no way my seeds won’t grow.

    I’ve been tending to them for years.

    They’ve been watered with tears...
    Showered in lessons...
    And submerged in faith.

    There’s no way my seeds won’t grow.
    My life is fertile ground.


    That One Phrase That Will Convict You Into Pulling Yourself Together...

    You ever have one of those heart-to-heart conversations with yourself?

    The kind of conversation you would have with a friend, only you’re the friend?

    You know that talk you gotta have because you’re her friend and you love her?

    I have those conversations with myself all the time and it usually goes like this:

    Tighten up, sis.

    Just keep showing up.

    You can and you will.

    Be humble. But let them know.

    First of all, don't settle. 

    I think every woman should have that one phrase that will convict her into pulling her self together.

    Friends are not always available. You don’t always have time to book a counseling session. Your mom, grandmom, auntie, sister, and whoever ain’t always around for a quick word of prayer. 

    Learn to encourage yourself.
    Inspire yourself, empower yourself, and pray for your own self.

    No one got you, like you got you.

    I asked my friends on Instagram about the phrase they always sitting in cue. They even dropped it in the comments for our sisters who are still working theirs out. Read here.
