Deliverance From The Sting of Divorce

A few weeks ago Tuesday September 6, 2011, something SPECTACULAR HAPPENED! I woke up in my bed and NEITHER of my daughters was there! For me, that was a divine moment that really represented a point of deliverance for my family. As I searched to figure out what the date was and why ALL OF [...]

A Single Parent’s Declaration : ” I Still Have Joy!”

I absolutely hate being a single parent. Sort of! I know that may be strong words for some, but for me, it’s a reality. Especially because it was something I never intended to be or expected to experience. I mean each of my daughters birth were “planned” as much as two parents can plan and [...]

Nevertheless, Let's Count Our Blessings

As I sat home today spending some time outside with my girls enjoying the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday, I was talking to another single mom about typical things.
