Happy New Year To All!! 🎊
This is the first blog of the year, and I’m dedicating this as a reminder to myself, and to those who can relate to what I write below.
I will start by saying that this year I’m taking life one day at a time, and making sure that I’m living each day on and with purpose. I’m blessed to see 43, and don’t want to take any day for granted.
With age comes knowledge, growth, and wisdom. I’m thankful for life in Christ, breath in my lungs, and another year to celebrate all the Lord has done.
The past two years, hasn’t been the easiest, but I’m thankful for the wisdom gained, the growth, and pruning process.
I’ve learned so much about myself, and my eyes have definitely been opened about many things, including people both in and who were once apart of my life.
Some revealings were painful, some pleasant, and others an experience I’ll never forget.
With life comes challenges, both good and bad. And at the end of the day, it’s what we learn from them, how we respond, and most importantly how we grow.

Time is not only Valuable, but it’s Precious, and Irreplaceable!!!
Time can also be taken away, wasted, misused, and even disregarded.
I’m taking into serious account where I’m using, spending, and investing my time for 2023. Life is short and yet so very precious.
Here’s to 2023 and the Next Chapter in Life, and choosing for God to continue writing my story. God Bless and Much Love Always!! ❤️📖🙏🏽
