Here I go again!


First off let me say sorry for not being on Facebook or any social media much in months. I just really needed some me time off line, and off the computer. I will be working on that tho.

Guess what? 🛩I am off on another adventure! I didn’t think I’d be traveling again. Especially so soon… 🚗 Wow! 🙉

I was asked to join my sister this time on her work trips. I will be away for about a month. I feel really blessed to be able to travel so much. I get to visit some of you and some new places as a bonus.🤝 Exciting right.! 🥳 I am overwhelmed and looking forward to it immensely. I left home yesterday and will be back sometimes mid November. I already miss my dog.

I also plan to take this opportunity to get some writing done. 🗒 I’ll have an abundance of inspiration 🤩 and some quality quiet time. I already spent six hours doing so today. It took a while but I finally got the equipment, I needed for my Mac. After losing my work due to update malfunctions, human error, and again for some unknown reasons… I’ve had a hard time getting into writting again. This time around I’m gonna be extremely overprotective of my work. 🔐 I am very determined to finish theses books! I think they will be better then before, because of the passion I have. I am putting all my heart into theses books. When they are done I hope you will enjoy.

Life is to short to let opportunities slip by. I wish I had done a lot of things differently. I did some really great things in my past so it’s not all discouraging… But I shouldn’t dwell on the past.🤭 I am who I am because of that past. I am pretty awesome too!😋 Thus, I am gonna be brave and not let fear hold me back from making the most of life. I will have courage and not hold back. I will trust God and make the most of what I have while working towards my dreams and goals. Remember- people are precious to me, especially those who I am close to. Just because I’m working on me doesn’t mean I’ll stop caring about you! 💕

👱‍♀️I feel I leaned a lot and grew in may ways on my last trip. I look forward to seeing the results and enjoying this one as well. I better get to sleep now.

Take care and be safe! God bless you today and always!

My Dad’s Heath….


Hello All,

“My Dad”

My dad is one of my biggest heroes. He would go to all my doctor heart appointments and act silly to keep the mood light. I have always tried to be a good daughter. [I’m not perfect tho. 🤣]

When I was a child and he worked swing shift, I would always make excuses to stay up and wait for him to come home. That became easier as I got older. Sometimes when he got home we woul all as a family go swimming under the stars. He has always strived to keep the family close and to be a good dad 👨 ❤

He is a kind man who works hard. He is always learning new things and creating new things, and inventing new ways to fix things. He is almost always willing to help others whenever he can. He never says a bad word about anyone. Whenever he got sick he would hide it if possible. He hardly ever showed weakness.

“A squirrel on the Wolf dad carved with a chainsaw”

In 1992 just before hurricane Andrew he had a heart attack. That was the first time we saw him really ill. I remember sitting outside the hospital door in Orlando while Hurricane Andrew passed over the state. Trying to entertain my sisters and not worry about my dad while mom was with him. That was a difficult task for sure. He refused to let us girls see him which was painful for us. Thankfully he survived and recovered.

“Dad and Rinley”

It wasn’t until December 2015 where he had a second heart attack and Flatlined. Thank God the doctor didn’t give up on Dad and he came to after 11 electro shocks. After that he had a triple bypass, a stent, and a defibulator put in throughout three surgeries, within the same week. He was subosoed to make a full recovery but he was still pretty weak. Because of a blood clot in his somach that caused issues getting blood to his leggs on top of a bad hip. That didn’t stop him from being as active as possible.

“Mom and Dad”

Then in 2018 he developed strep / cellulitis in his foot which turned into a some sort of vasular ulser. It took most the skin off the top of his foot almost causeing him to lose his foot. I won’t share the pictures I have here but possibly in a book in tbe futer. It was pretty gross at some points.

He became bedridden, all the doctors said there was nothing they could do that he should just prepare for the end. We had nurses and physical therapy coming several times a month. It really tested our faith. Dad had blood poisoning three maybe four times. He was on several antibiotics non stop. We didn’t give up tho, we kept praying!

“Jini and Dad.”

After months of his foot getting worse we finally went to see a second doctor who wanted to do a bypass surgery in his legs even though everyone insisted it would be a lost cause. They they proceeded to do the bypass surgery in his legs, they were pretty sure they would still have to amputate his foot later tho. But we kept praying and standing on the word of God. When reading the Bible out loud to him we came across a verese that we know God gave us for the trials we’ve been facing….

We claimed that over him and stood in faith. They kept insisting that his foot had to be taken, and maybe more. The day before the sugery, which we didn’t realize was scheduled they heard blood flow. So we asked them to push the sugery back and they agreed to push it back three days to see if there would be enough blood flow to save his foot. After the second day they canceled his sugery and he started a treatment that they use for burn victims. Called mist therapy.

“Jabber and another chainsaw carving of dad’s.”

After a month of treatment his foot was well to come home. I took him to a burn dr three timesca week untill he was well enough for a skin graft. When they did his first graph they also had to remove a some of the bone in his foot and big toe due to it being infected. But nothing to major. His first graph was promising tho not perfect but he needed a second one from his own skin from his thigh. Tho painful for sure he made a full recovery after almost a year of stress, fear, anger and pain!

Don’t Give up hope for a miracle. It may take a while, and may not come about the way we wsnt. But God is a Good! He is a loving father who gave us his son Jesus.

Don’t Give up hope and be strong. We may not understand the path we are traveling but it will be a path that will make a difference. 😀 God brings good out of all bad situations. I truly believe that and I fully trust God.

My dad never gave up, and he’s better, znd more active now tgen after his bypass surgery in 2015. He is one of my biggest heroes and I strive to be more like him.

“I Love my Dad”

God bless you today and always!

Happy New Year 2018


 

Screenshot at Dec 31 21-18-50.pngHey all! Happy New Year!

         Out  with the old and in with the New right? I don’t know about you but this year has been something dramatic novel! I feel as if a lot of what has happened the past few years has been surreal.   Some great moments, among some very tying times. As if I was  someone else watching my life as it happened. I can not at this time go into details of everything. In short Its been hard emotionally, mentally, and physically. My faith has truly been tested. There were times I thought I wouldn’t’t be able to handle it. Sometimes you are forced to make hard choices. I had to yet gain put my books on hold for various reasons.

I was surprised tho this Christmas when I received a gift  from one of my biggest supporters. She gave me a Mac Pro laptop computer. It is not huge, but its is way more then I could have asked for or though to request.  In return she expects me to publish some books this year. The wonderful woman is going though so much right now and yet she invested in me. I sure hope I don’t let her or any of you down. The Mac is so different from what I am used to.  I do not have the programs, adaptor port, or mouse that I need yet. However, that will be rectified in a matter of days.  From what I have discovered so far the Mac pro is amazing. This touch pad is great. I feel so bad, that still haven’t published any books since  “God Supplies and Miracles Happen”.  I have been without a computer for several moths.  Plus Money has been extra tight. I feel truly blessed and completely surprised. I don’t  feel worth it somedays.  At times I felt I should give up… But then I am surprised you all still are  here believing in me. I am truly humbled! I pray I can live up to your expectations and then some. I have an amazing group people in my life and a wonderful family. I want to remind  you, God is bigger then the situations we are in. I sure pray this coming year is better for all of you.  I love you all I am truly truly grateful!  May this year  bring you  an abundance of blessings and open doors. God bless you today and always!😁

Whoa There!


Hello my beloved readers,

How you doing there? I know its been awhile since I’ve posted something. I did not win the contest for the college scholarship. They did two drawings. I was quite disappointed. I have everything ready to go and I do plan on going back to college, I guess now it just isn’t the time. The first class they want me to take when Im able- is worth six credits which is awesome! the collage only does one class per semester which is awesome, and you’ll still be able to get your degree within 2 years. Because each class is about two classes are more combined. However I cannot afford the $3000 for each class plus the book fees. I started to apply for fasta but it caused my health insurance to be discontinued. Thus I had to drop it and reinstate my health insurance. You can guess which one is more important to me. I do have an international business degree so it’s not like I don’t have a college background. It’s just not something that I can put to practical use at this point in time in my life. So I’m going to stick to writing books. And I pray to God that they sell well and that I finish them promptly.

I haven’t had much time to write currently, with extra obligations have coming up. And I keep getting sick. -sigh- So I have found myself turning into a hermit again… It’s really hard to keep up with people other than family. It seems texting is a thing of the past lately which is okay with me because I prefer phone calls,it’s so easy to misinterpret a text. I really do love people but when I keep losing my voice because of being sick and not having my computer close at hand for gaming and skype activities. It’s just hard to keep up with people.

Seems every time I make some serious headway in the direction I want my life to go things get put on hold almost always for good reasons lately but it is quite frustrating. I’m sure some of you agree that you; find having your plans derailed similarly frustrating. I hope I’m not the only one who isn’t where she would like to be in life. I am extremely grateful for where I am but I wish I would have achieved more of my dreams that I seem to have so far. It’s easy to get jealous of other people who are happy there succeeding and have found their niquce in life. I know where I want to go, but getting there is the issue. I am the only one to blame for a lot of things I could have done earlier. But as the opening to one of my books quotes: I would not be where I am today if I hadn’t made the choices I made in the past. Furthermore I like where I am at right now.

I’m sorry If you don’t find me as cheerful and peppy as normal, but I’ll have you know I am a trooper! I am a soldier in God’s army I am a fighter I am NOT a quitter and I always push on. No matter what I face I keep moving forward not just because it’s the only direction I see, but because going backwards gets me nowhere. Dwelling on the past only brings up heartache and misery. When you look forward you find hope and something to look forward to. You can’t change what’s already happened you can only change what you do with every day you live and breathe. Don’t waste it being angry and upset about what you can’t change because you’ll miss out on so much that life has to offer and more importantly you will miss people who want  to be a part of your life now if you continue to live in the past.
