Good morning y’all! Did you miss me while I was on vacation? I flew back on the 19th and took the rest of the week to get my house in order, spend time with dear hubby and Mawow. Mawow seems to have been affected the most by me being gone for two weeks. He no longer yells at me for attention, he just jumps up on me and demands my attention. He seems to be permanently attached to me. As for me, I am finding it hard to get myself motivated and want to stay in vacation mode forever. I know that it isn’t feasible, but it is a lovely daydream. I want to stay floating in my bestie’s pool for life. 😊
For some time now, I have been a stage of personal growth and I finally see where my life has been heading. When I began having growing pains within my personal life I was unsure as to where my finishing point would end up, but I realize that throughout our lives we are always in some form of personal growth. Without personal growth, we would stagnate, wither and die on the vine. I can look back at my blog (sorry those are personal and not for public consumption) to see where I began many, many years ago and I can see the growth in my life even if I was not able to see it at the time. I can now see the direction I am heading, but I no longer worry about the endpoint because I want to continue to grow and stretch myself to see where this crazy life takes me.
So, what does that mean for my blog? I will not be removing posts that I have made this year, but my blog will grow along with me. In the past whenever my blog moved into a new phase, I have made previous posts to private, but this time I want you to grow and move with me.
I am not changing my political views because I am passionate about what I believe in, but I cannot focus on the Trump administration as I have done since the beginning of the year. I am finding myself hating what I do because it seems that I cannot find anything good happing in the world today and that is beginning to drain me and make me want to turn away from my passion. I love writing more than I could ever express to a person who doesn’t feel the same way and when I try to write my daily blog, I find myself turning away and I will procrastinate like nobody’s business. I will lose myself in YouTube, Facebook, Instagram or whatever I can find on the internet. I also have been putting off editing my book because I spend so much time trying to write for my blog that I run out of time.
During this time of personal growth and finding my way again, I will still watch what I going on in our world because I believe we all need to be informed and we need to find ways to make the world a better place, which leads into my faith in God. I am still a believer in God and I am a follower of Christ, but I have to walk away from calling myself a Christian. Some people who call themselves Christians have perverted the meaning of being a Christian into something that I don’t think God would approve of. As a follower of Christ, I believe in the teachings of Christ and how lived on this earth.
Would Christ have turned his back of people trying to flee from their homeland? Of course not! God is love and God wants us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. God doesn’t care if you are black, white, purple, pink, green or zebra striped. We are ALL children of God. We cannot allow ourselves to become prejudice against someone because of their skin color or the language they speak. We all belong together and I believe in living as Christ did. I want to help my fellow man and I will help my fellow man.
So, please hang in there as I go through this time in my life. I will still be posting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but I am going to get back to why I started writing my blog in the first place. I want to share my life, what I am doing with my life and share my writing with you. So, in the meantime, my blog is going to be a little flexible. It may be politics and how we survive this administration, how we help each other, it might be life updates, and of course, we can’t forget Mawow. He wants you to know all about him too.
I want to figure out how I can help the children who Donald Trump separated from their families. I am doing my research and I promise I will share what I find with you. We need to help these children. Please, help me help those children. They are innocent in all of this and Trump is punishing them because they are not white. (this is my opinion)

Mawow and I wish you,
