Off the Roller Coaster…FINALLY

Okay, remember the other night, I was at Carolyn’s band performance? Well, that evening, I found myself totally content on where I was and haven’t differed since.

While I was watching Carolyn, I realized how nothing was distracting me; there was nothing in the way of me seeing her, watching her, taking every movement in, and then it dawned on me what a priceless gift it was to be a single mom. Continue reading

Me and Kyle at the Raiders game 10/25/2015

Yesterday, Kyle took me to the Raiders game, but up until on our way there, I had no idea where he’d gotten the tickets, and finding out squeezed my heart with a hug.

Kyle works for a popular nightclub downtown called “OMNIA.” A little bit ago, a company reserved the club for their company shindig. It was then, when Kyle was noticed.

At this club, he’s security, and he’s so good at his job! Some of you may remember about this club and how they chased Kyle down and practically begged him to work for them. Well, while he was working this particular event, a woman noticed his stature and offered him tickets to the Raiders game.

Wow!

He was given two tickets, and the first person he thought of to take was ME, his mommy! How amazing is that!! A twenty-four year old young man preferred to take his mom above any of his friends. I was so honored and still am, and while I was there, I heard so much boasting about him. Continue reading

Convenience of Prayer

Lately, I’ve been invited by some friends to dance at a church in La Mesa, and I’ve been welcoming their invitation to worship. This past Sunday after church, Corrie and I were coming out of a 7-11 convenience store, laughing (as usual).

Without knowing, we almost dressed identical, so we were joking about how everything was the same: our outfits were the same, our waters were the same, our Jesus was the same…as we were giggling and displaying this, a young man joined in, lifted his ice coffee, and said, “Our coffee is the same!” Well, to me, that’s an invitation to talk, so I stopped.

A Sobering Moment

When we were at Ocean Beach on Sunday, I had the chance to meet these two beautiful young ladies. They were so drunk…so high, but in the Presence of God, you wouldn’t believe how sober a person can become.

The way they approached us was hilarious! They were, literally, falling all over us, asking, “Who’s the Raiders fan?” (Mind you: I wasn’t wearing “anything” Raiders on Sunday, which is surprising. Normally, I have SOMETHING on that shows that awesome team.) I raised my hands loud and proud and said, “I am!!” They were SO disappointed. They were asking to give that person a hard time, but once they started talking to me, they couldn’t help but love me. Continue reading
