Life is just sad. You wake up not knowing what to expect and then boom you are hit with something that knocks you off of your feet. No matter how many times you go through something, it may never get easier for you. My cousin married a wonderful man in October of 2009. A few short weeks later, he was rushed to the hospital and placed in intensive care. He had several surgeries and procedures during that time. A few weeks ago, she hit me up on FB. I called her to talk and to encourage her. It was during that time that she told me she was also expecting. This past Wednesday, her husband lost his battle and passed away. I won't even pretend to imagine the pain and hurt she is going through. I sit her typing with tears in my eyes and a heavy heart for someone I love so very much.

Sometimes, I just don't have the words to say. Sometimes I just don't understand why things happen. But through it all, I trust God. I trust Him more and more and that's all I can do. Q

Family First

I know I haven't blogged in a minute. I have been super, super busy. Many of you know I started my cupcake and cake business and about 2 weeks ago, I began moving it to a commercial space. It has taken a lot of time and attention to get this done. There is a lot of paperwork, and permits, and on and on. In the midst of that, I am still a wife, a mother, a daughter, an aunt, a minister and I work another job. I still need to get the Supremes blog up and going, contact the winner, supervise the work being done at the house, help my mom plan her wedding and a host of other things. So something had to suffer and so it was this blog.

If you follow me on twitter, you know a few days ago I went on a rant about some stuff. I had read an article about President Obama that rubbed me the wrong way. Folks were complaining about how much time he spent with his family. No really they did. Then some chick on twitter was going on about wondering if he thought about the homeless people while he was out eating with his wife. The double standard stuff amazes me. People's thinking is so backwards!!!! Bottom line, the President is the leader of his family FIRST PERIOD. Long after he has left office, he will still be Michelle's husband, and Sasha and Malia's dad. He can't put them on the back burner just to appease people. If more parents spent more time with their kids instead of out shopping, watching tv, surfing the net or working, a lot of things in this world would be better.

I take breaks from different things in my life to make time for my family. Even with all I have going on, I make sure T and the Supremes come first, after God of course. I look at Princess B and I can't believe how fast time has flown by. I can't imagine putting her or her sisters to the side just so I can do me. It doesn't work like that. They didn't ask to be here and I didn't have to marry T. But since they are, and I did, I need to take care of them. A lot of this makes me wonder about preacher's kids. Why do they have such bad reputations? Are their parents too strict and don't show enough compassion? Or are they too busy taking care of God's people while forgetting about the family God has placed in their lives? Either way, I don't want that for my daughters. All you have to do is look in the bible and see how things went south for King David when he didn't handle his family business. The entire kingdom suffered. So I applaud our President for taking care of home first. I bet you won't hear about his daughters out at clubs involved in underage drinking. *blink*

This week while away from my blog, I decided to write in a journal instead. I started this idea awhile ago but what I initially had was all over the place. So I went to Ross and found a nice neat one. This journal will be my love letter to my daughters. I will tell them about everything from love, to sex, religion, relationships, friendships etc. But most importantly, I want them to know how much I love them. I don't just want to tell them, I am showing them. I talk with them, I spend time with them, and I am there for them. It's really time for us to stop focusing on silly stuff and focus on what matters most. So many people think the answer to their prayers is more money. But I believe if you take care of God's business which includes your family, He will take care of yours. So if you don't see me on here posting or on twitter tweeting, know that I am okay and I am making sure, my family comes first. I can always catch up and blog, but I can't get back the time I have to spend with my family. Q
