It’s been a while….

Hey guys and gals. It’s been a while since my last post. I have been busy, mentally, and physically. I had to stay in the house for a couple of months. I started watching videos on how to learn how to sew. I started a few projects, such as making my hair scarfs and face masks. I have made a few masks by hand. I am excited to learn how to use all the different filters for masks. I did start limited travel through the state for work, but it has run its course.


Took a COVID-19 Antibody test those results; were negative. Now I have to take a COVID-19 test this week to make sure I am still in the clear. I live in one of the Epic centers state. The govern refuse to mandatory the face mask rule. A lot of the local counties took action and in force a face mask mandate law. People have figure out a way around the law. They purchase the fake medical clearance for not wearing a mask. I am sorry if you aren’t able to wear a face mask, please wear a face shield to protect others around you. I started utilizing the early morning shopping hours for seniors, people with disabilities, and immunocompromised. Unfortunately for me, I fall in the last two categorize.


We have too many people walking around with COVID-19 spreading the virus. I never thought I would see the day someone who tested positive for COVID-19 say the virus is fake because they are asymptomatic.

New face mask project

I’ve been busy this month with work, school work, and mask making. I wanted to learn how to make face masks. I spent hours watching YouTube videos on how to sew. I decide to buy a sewing machine to make it easy on myself. Well, that last for only two completed masks. I went ahead and starting sewing mask by hand with the exception poking myself numerous I have gotten better at sewing.

Hmmm..

Today the world is nosy, mean, and corrupted.

You use your sight to see all the violence and destruction. 

You use the nose to smell all the foul air circulating in the world today.

You use your heart to feel all the hurt and pain people are suffering.

You use your ears to hear all the berating and belittling of people.

You use hands to touch the blood that has been shed by man.

People think if they can’t touch, smell, taste, hear or see faith it, doesn’t exist.

Now is the time to try a different approach. 

Walk by faith and not sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Pause, Reflect and Reset

The last six months presented us with an opportunity to stop and reflect on life thus far. Base on my life reflection, I gain gratitude for the trials and tribulations I went through. The lessons I learned help me to become the person I am now. I don’t take life for granted. I appreciate waking up every day regardless of my pain and mental state.
In 2016 I was forced to pause and reset my life. I have been living life to the fullest every day. I started venturing out of my comfort zone. Every couple of months, we would travel across the country. I learned to let go of things I can’t control. I started the process of purging people from my life. I stop listening and caring about what people thought.

Life is too short to be a follower. People need to stop, look, and pay attention to whats going on in their life. Reset and create your path in life.

Color of my skin

Because of the color of my skin, you say my life doesn’t matter.

Because of the color of my skin, you avoid talking to me face to face.

Because of the color of my skin, you can’t see me.

Because of the color of my skin, you say I am not entitled to anything.

Because of the color of my skin, you treat me like dirt.

Because of the color of my skin, you think I am not intelligent.

Because of the color of my skin, you think I ‘m uneducated.

Because of the color of my skin, you belittle, berate, discriminate, hate, and want to break me.

Because of the color of my skin, you want to kill me.

Because of the color of my skin, you wish my kind would disappear from the earth.

Because of the color of my skin, I will rise.

Because of the color of my skin, I will shout from the highest mountain.

My life does matter, and you will never break me.

I am stronger and wiser.

I am beautiful and free.

I am worthy of life.

I am intelligent and educated.

I will no longer be chained and silence.

Because of the color of my skin, you seem to have forgotten

We all come from dirt.

We all bleed the same color blood.

We all have the same internal body parts.

We all will return to dirt once we die.

You are my brothers and sisters regardless of the color of my skin.

God created all of us.

We all are his children.

We all are the same, just different skin shades.

The next time we cross paths, you will know who I am because of the color of my skin.

P.S my brothers and sisters never believe you are weak, worthless, not love, or wanted.

Our heavenly father created each of us to be Priceless.
