Whew! It has taken me a long while to get back to what I’ve always loved doing – writing. I’ve guest blogged here and there, but the thought of getting back into a routine with my own blog has been so overwhelming I’ve shied away from it far too long. But after a long hiatus, some much needed R&R and a recent moment of reflection on what I’ve accomplished and still hope to tackle…BABY, I’M BACK! 😉
Where have I been, you say? Oh…probably nowhere the average 40-something year old African American woman hasn’t been…I guess it was just my turn in line. I’ve been through 2 whole years of divorcing (yes, it actually took that long…Jesus!), along with a sudden necessity to care for two elderly parents, single-mothering of 5 children in the home, working-working-working day and night (yes – a full-time job), and trying to keep my relationship with God (nearer My Lord to thee) while keeping everyone alive including my sanity…YIKES!!! It’s been quite the trip!
Now that I’m back, I can’t wait to tell you all about the journey my children and I have taken, the things I’ve learned, the places I’ve been, the dreams I still hope to achieve and the joy, peace and laughter I’ve enjoyed along the way.
But first…we EAT! 😀 Next up…a recipe for my amazing Cajun Shrimp and Sweet Potato Soup! Check it out and we’ll chat soon…
Blessings and Bonanzas!
