Hello Good Folks!
I felt like the “Bamma of the Week” yesterday. I let those weather folks dupe me into staying home because of the BIG BAD STORM. Now granted, it is better to be safe than sorry. But I felt bamboozled because the sun was shining outside for most of the day in my area. Now I did see some very dark clouds past over my way, but nothing to stay home about. However, I laugh at the situation because it is an example of where you can’t overwhelm yourself with every bit of information swirling around you. You end up confusing yourself, and you don’t know what to do. So in those times of uncertainty or confusion, you just need to be still and listen to the spirit because it knows what’s best for you. Even though I was home, I was working which also made me realize that I wouldn’t want to work from home everyday. I felt so isolated and disconnected from everyone. Facebook just doesn’t cut real, live human interaction.
So this is a great weekend….Juneteenth, Father’s Day and my birthday. This year, my birthday falls on Father’s Day, so I tend to think that I am his ultimate gift. I mean if it wasn’t for me he wouldn’t be celebrating, right?! 🙂 All jokes aside though, I love and greatly appreciate my father. He sacrificed so much to give his family the world, and I am truly thankful. I also have to give a shout out to my baby sister born 1 day before my birthday. Growing up, I always wanted a twin (I guess that’s the Gemini in me). Well, I got one 21 years and 1 day later. Happy Sweet 16!
For the most part, I will be taking it easy for the weekend. I am “planned -out” from coordinating a wedding for over a year. I’ve decided for the rest of the year to just “go with the flow”! 🙂 Unless the hubby has some plans (and I am certain he does) I am relaxing, reflecting and enjoying my birthday. A lot has happened this year for me, and I know this is just the beginning. But I am very excited for what is yet to come.
Enjoy the weekend!
Peace, Love and Blessings,
