Me, “Who’s staying home? Me or you?” My husband, “Why?” Me, “Brielle is sick.” I had no clue my husband and I would ever have to decide on who’s staying home to watch our sick daughter (sounds silly, but true). I never thought about her getting sick through the week. I’m serious-don’t talk about me too bad. Fortunately, I was the one that stayed home (lol!). We tried to make an arrangement for both of us to work half a day…it didn’t work. I was not upset. I actually felt blessed to know we were working together as a team. It’s easy to take moments like this for granite. I am appreciative my husband and I are growing in parenthood. We do not always see eye-to-eye on parenting issues, but we are learning/learned how to compromise. Our focus is to raise a healthy child spiritually, emotionally and physically. In order to do so, we have to be a strong unit. A lot of things are trial and error. We figure it out along the way.

The arguments or fire discussions help mold us. How can you have perfection without discomfort? We need the ugly to bring out the good. It only fortifies our union and destiny. I am proud of our progress. Everyday looks more promising. We are getting this parent thing down-pat.

I am going to focus on this phase. Lord help us! With our next chapter…toddler-adult development…on my knees:)


You Want Me To Do WHAT?


About four months ago, as I was rocking my daughter to sleep, I began to pray. I asked God, “What is my next move in life?” I was/am longing for greater things. I immediately heard his reply, “Start a blog.” I thought, “What?” I had no clue about starting a blog. Plus, I didn’t feel I was a good writer. I will comma splice or omit punctuation at any given moment. To top it off, I was not computer savvy! Evidently, I heard the wrong answer. That is not what God was saying to me.

Nevertheless, I listened…give or take, two weeks later. I researched how to start a blog on the internet, prayed for direction, perused different blogs to get ideas, and I asked for help. Within three weeks, Pamela Taylor’s Truth was birthed. Unfortunately, I stalled for about a month advertising my site. I was scared. I didn’t want people to think I was crazy nor let them into my personal world. It hit me! God directed me to create this blog for a purpose. It was not all about me. Other people need to hear my truth, my journey. I moved forward.

Through my blog, I have experienced complete healing from Postpartum Depression, become a better wife, mother, and touched the heart of those who visit my site. Plus, my resume has expanded! I am now the proud CEO of Pamela’s Truth!! Let’s not forget…drum-roll please…I know how to set up a blog site AND add plug-ins!!!

What has God compelled you to do? Do not let fear stop you…Move forward!! Your obedience will help others.

Pooping Revelation

One evening I was taking a shower while Brielle played in her tub. I am only making life a little easier. We can both get clean at the same time. Well, at least Brielle can enjoy her toys because she cannot bathe herself. Anyway, everything was going smoothly… until Brielle pooped in her tub. It was a massive explosion. I jumped out of the shower to save her. As if, she was in danger. Nevertheless, Brielle was able to smear some poop; and in the process of me trying to lift her out of the tub, she tried to drink the bathwater. I know! Gross! It was funny to her. I stood Brielle outside of the tub, so I could figure out my next move. I decided to finish her bath in the bathroom sink. It was too much trouble to clean out the tub, run more bath water, and then bathe her.
After everyone and everything was clean. I took a moment to reflect on the situation. It hit me! There is always a solution to every problem we face. Regardless, of how it looks and feels like at the moment, there is an answer. We only need to pay attention. I am guilty of making my life more complicated (at times) by over-thinking situations, not praying as I should,  and holding on to my worries. God always give me direction! When I stop trying to figure everything out; and I LET him work it out.

My poop solution was in front of  me…the sink. Where is yours?

A simple revelation for a stinking mess.
