Come Party With Us! - Ultimate Blog Party 2009

There's a party going on at 5 Minutes for MOM and you have to come party and meet friends and win prizes.

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

A few things about me:
My Photo
** I am a SAHM with two wonderful children and I feel very blessed to be their mother. I live in Louisiana but I'm from the Caribbean island of Jamaica.
** God is constant in my everyday thoughts and my all belongs to HIM.

** I would rather recieve a potted plant than flowers.
** You will also come to know that I"m a music fan. I have to tap a strand to whatever is playing.
** I sometimes do sweepstakes and hope that I"ll win
** I"ll hug you if I am touched by your spirit. I love to give hugs period.
** I love chins

** I talk to my babies like they are another adult listening and interacting with me. I love breastfeeding my babies and wish I could have done it longer. I did not wean them...it just faded out.
** I loooove to dance and listen to music. Its in me bones!!! It would be great to have a best friend to just be down with no matter how I"m feeling.
** I'm a bookworm, I read just about everything!

** I want to adopt two kids
** I am still afraid of very loud thunders, I'd rather not be alone when its happening.
** I clean when I'm angry and frustrated
** I love my husband...I just don't know how to love him all the time.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is out light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson ~ from A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a Course in Miracles ~

P - Pray
U - Until
S - Something
H - Happens

    Was a favorite saying of my grandmothers, I used to make her handmade bookmarks with this on them for her to pass out amongs her friends and those that were simply in need. Seeing that again, made me remember and smile :)

    I thank you for stopping by my place and spending some of your precious time with me there. That too made me smile :)
    I trust and pray that this finds you and yours well and truly blessed! :)

    I'm a new fan of you blog, I'll be watching and looking forward to getting to know you better.

  135. I don't know where that picture is but, if I'd could crawl through my monitor you'd have to pry me outta there with a CROW BAR!!! I just want to sit and LOOK at it for longer then would be mentally healthy. LOL

    Hey, thanks very much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I LOVED your bio of yourself.

    I, too, am a Christian and also teach high school Sunday school - love me some kids. I have two of my own and I was a long-term nurser. Hannah-Bo was 2 1/2 when she weaned herself and The Wild Man was just past 3. I will always be GLAD they had that start and we had that time together! :)

    And we are also music lovers here (and players and singers and writers). I'm with ya. Get me groove on wherever there's music and that's not always good! LOL

    Anyway, I joined up to follow 'cause I don't wanna lose you. Maybe you'll feel led to do the same but either way, I'll be back. :) Blessings to you!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Stopping by on the blog party - wow - you have a TON of comments! wow!

  170. Wow, so many comments to get lost in but I have to tell how much I am enjoying your blog -- beautiful photos from Hawaii! -- and when I read your header I thought we must be sisters in a former life, except I would say, "Do not mistake kindness for weakness." Oh, and I'm blond;)

  171. My goodness girl! Look at all these comments! That's amazing!

    I had to re-add my post to the linky, since it was somehow deleted (only noticed it yesterday too).

    And I too like potted plants better than flowers, although I'd never turn down a bouquet.
