It still makes me giggle three years later:)

Monday night…more like super, early Tuesday morning my daughter woke up. She refused to go back to sleep. After about an hour, we figured out she was having a teething moment (don’t judge us…we are new parents). I gave her a dose of Tylenol to ease her pain. While we waited for the medicine to do its job, my husband decided to take her into the living room to watch tv. At least, I thought that was the case hmmm…

The next afternoon my husband said to me, “Brielle likes Cap N Crunch cereal.” “How do you know that?”, I asked him in a curious manner. Nonchalantly, my husband said, “I fed her some while we were up watching tv.” I’m thinking, who does that? My husband…SMH. I suggested feeding her Cheerios next time.

Well, he fed her a mixture of Cheerios and Cap N Crunch later that evening. I just smiled.

We all win! Including the baby!!

I recall years ago, I was not 100% happy with my appearance. I had bucked teeth.  This “imperfection” would nag at my self esteem.

During conversations I would wonder if the person I was conversing with was genuinely engaged in what I was saying; or were they staring at my teeth. Sometimes, I fell in the background due to the way I saw myself. Years later, I wore braces to correct my teeth. I never smiled so much in my life after having my braces removed.  My smile was like the sun breaking through dark clouds on a rainy day. Most importantly, I was still the same person. It didn’t change my personality…just my teeth.

Do not allow an “imperfection” stop you from being great!! It’s not your voice. It’s not your truth.

*We were all skillfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14 KJV).

Not a Mind Reader…


I got so upset with my husband because he did not read my thoughts. I needed him to automatically know to get our daughter dressed; and take her to school. I told him earlier I was not feeling the best. I couldn’t understand why it didn’t register for him to get up and prepare the baby for daycare. Like hello!! What was I thinking? He’s not a mind reader. And an attitude didn’t help either.

Most men and women think differently. We (women) know how to fill in the gaps…unspoken. I should of communicated my needs instead of an attitude. Gosh, I wasted unnecessary energy. The lack of communication plays out daily on our jobs,in our homes, and relationships.

Just state what you need. No one is a mind reader.


Think About It

Can I become an entrepreneur, if I do not surround myself with risk takers?

*Can I become a better wife, if I’m always hanging out with my single friends?

Can I become a stronger christian, if I barely spend time with God?

Can I become a good listener, if I’m the one always talking?

Can I become a writer, if I never pick up a pen and write?

What are you pursuing, but not doing it? (read it again)

*Thanks to Shaia Simmons for inspiring one of the questions.
