Unconditional Love and Acceptance of Your Child

Unconditional Love and Acceptance of Your Child

The single most important thing you can give to your child, is unconditional love and acceptance.  Loving and accepting your child JUST THE WAY THEY ARE, will by far be the biggest gift you can give them.  Every child wants love and acceptance, and it can be even argued that acceptance of children that are not neurotypical is even a greater need.  Society often points out the differences of special needs children.  Doctors, teachers, other kids, point out behaviors, physical appearance,…

The Upside to a M.I.A. Father on Father’s Day

The Upside to a M.I.A. Father on Father’s Day

Don’t get me wrong.  Single parenthood is challenging.  I, in no way want to glorify single parenthood.  It can be downright hard  sometimes especially on days like Father’s Day.  I am not a single parent that thinks parenthood is designed to be for one parent alone and do not think kindly of well wishers that tell me happy father’s day on a day that is specifically designed for dads.  Children need TWO Parents, not one and when one is out of the picture,…

SLEEP

SLEEP

SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPP!!!!!! We all know we need it. I think we can remember our mothers telling us we need a good night’s rest for school in the morning. But do we carry that practice into adulthood? Sometimes we pass up on sleep to be more productive, thinking we are being short-changed by the number of hours in the day. If we could just get that housework completed, that homework assignment done, or a head start on the project for work, we…

Taking Care of Me

Taking Care of Me

For the last three weeks, my Sun has been ill, very ill, to the point of hospitialization. A cold and ear infection turned into pneumonia and dehydration.  I put everything on hold. Business, housework, friends, everything.  My main focus was tending to my Sun’s needs.  As days turned into weeks,  I realized that even though my Sun was sick, I needed to preserve my energy so I could be of benefit to him.  Frankly, at times I was running on…

My Sun

My Sun

 This is my Isaiah. He is 10 years old now. Never knew how one person could be so impactful in my life. Just a decade ago, my world was all about me. What dance class I was going to attend, what I needed to do to prepare for the next Nyahbhinghi gathering, making money, my man, and my fiends. Over the last decade I have learned to truly prioritize and focus on what is truly important. Now instead of preparing…

5 Things to Plan When You are Gone

It may sound morose, however death is a natural part of life that we all must face. For parents of special needs children, the thought of our impending death is a very scary thought. What will happen to my dependent child is a thought that has literally kept me up late at night and brought me to tears on more than one account. I finally decided to take charge and do something about it.  I just attended a workshop from…

Want to change your life? Change your thoughts!!!!!

Ever wonder why no matter how hard you try you find yourself in the same situation? The people may be different or a different environment however you are virtually in the same boat as before. Dearest Divine,  this is because you have unconsciously accepted some core beliefs that no longer serve you.  Some popular core beliefs that some women hold are, “I am not worthy.” “I am not enough.” “I am dumb.” “I am fat.” “Good things never happen to me.” “I…

Motherhood brings a lot of joy . The hugs, the kisses, the sweet I love yous. It can also be very taxing and draining. The constant giving.

With all of the giving in motherhood, it is important to take time to replenish the Spirit. To focus on yourself and give yourself…

KEEPING THE PEACE WITH THE EX FOR THE CHILDREN

KEEPING THE PEACE WITH THE EX FOR THE CHILDREN

It gives me great peace when I am out of conflict, including with my EX, and I treasure my peace more than momentary flairs of anger or self righteousness, even though 99% of the responsibility of raising my Sun is on my shoulders.  I love it when my Sun has BOTH parents to count on and look forward to for guidance.  I keep in mind when my Sun is incessantly calling for his Father in his absence, if I were…
