Fabulously Female

She was strong enough to lift other women up.

She was kind enough to help other women in need.

She was brave enough to defend other defenseless women.

She was humble enough to appreciate elderly woman.

She was patient enough to guide younger women.

She was pleasant enough to teach trouble women.

She was mature enough to listen to in-prisoned women.

She was inspired enough to follow historical women.

She was dedicated enough to work with business women.

She was Fierce … Fabulous & Fearless…

She is a Female!

Written in honor of all women who have ever been diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. Whether the best has been laid to rest or continues to get strong every day, this is for you. You’re never alone 💕 PINKTOBER!!💕



This afternoon, I was driving home, with my two daughters.

As I sat at a red light, (by the way, I’ve stopped and waited for stop signs to turn green as well. Brandy’s Not So Bright Chronicals might be in the works!) I noticed a flag hanging on a porch.

Typically, this would be no big deal. Today, along with the flag, stood three naked full body size manikins!!! I had to laugh because Starship’s melody began singing in my head.

Maybe they were declaring unstoppable love?!

#FOWC: Refuge: Apparent: Immense

I met him on a dating app, Badoo (Premium). A paid monthly membership’s, not only, provides additional features, but also, increases the likelihood of positive results. {Or at least that’s my train to thought!}

He had the gorgeous black curls, with the perfect complimentary brown eyes. He was polite and asked me to join him for coffee the coming Saturday.

I was NERVOUS! I was excited. He has the Native American ethnic features (which I love)… and there was this “thing” in his eyes… a thing I didn’t yet know would become my home, my safe refuge from the anxiety and fears of the world we live.

We had to cancel that date. For us, parenting comes first…

In the meantime, I felt so overwhelmed by his aura that I kept a distance from him. (As if physical space dissolves what’s always been in the soul.)

After two weeks, we reestablished communication. There are people in our lives that are meant to be in it. There’s people in our lives that are meant to stay in it… and I feel immense appreciation and love for God to have opened my heart to this man. I feel immense joy and contentment with him in my life…

Not to get ahead of myself, our happily lives together (aka our current situation), hasn’t been without pain and sacrifice. As I think about our journey, the difficulties and sacrifices, the unknown and compromises, the tears and the pain… When I think about the mountains God helped me move, to better me as his leading lady… and him as my King, it’s apparent that we’re indeed soul mates…

We’re blessed to have found one another. His whole being is exactly what I’ve wanted in a person. His willingness to listen to me, and his small subtle changes in time have repeatedly melted my heart. I feel so much that I’m always trying to be and do better. I’m growing and changing with every little argument or spat. Is that not the best outcome anyone would seek?

We’ve worked hard on “Us”…. but, that’s the reason why it’s still We

As often as we’ve argued… as much as we’ve been through, personally I can say I know of NO ONE else who would’ve survived it. This has been our story, and we’ve accepted it early on. One difference, that’s kept us together, has been we have chosen “Us” over and over and over again. We have yet to understand how we’ve found this… but we could never denying that what we have is unbreakable.
