Happy Birthday 


Just want to touch base with everyone. I’ve been very busy and not been able to post much. I’ve had so many doctors appointments but they have all turned out good.

Today, February 3rd, is my birthday and I’m now 35 years old. Don’t mean to toot my own horn but this a big milestone for me. With all my health issues, some would say I’m lucky to be alive. I never thought I’d make it to this point but by the grace of God and changing my life around I am!

I am so thankful for this day. I’m thankful for all of my readers/followers/and blogger community, my family, my fiancé, friends, and doctors in my life. I was not looking forward to this milestone but realized how much I have in my life.


2016 has begun here!


Happy happy happy New Year from good old Tennessee in the US. I’m so lucky to have such wonderful, kind, passionate, inspirational,  lovely, funny, opinionated, and the list goes on of followers, readers, and bloggers in this family/community!


New Year poem


The time is near
It’s almost a new year
So many memories from this past year

Looking forward to the new memories awaiting to happen

So many birthdays throughout the year

And many important holidays

Have I started my new year resolution list

I need to be thinking about it

Maybe a bucket list for this year

It’s election year here in the US

Which is going to be interesting

All I want is happiness,love,luck,peace, and everything positive for all my readers, followers,and blogger family/community

Happy New Year to all


Reaching out to all as a MOTHER


I’m coming to my readers/follows/and fellow bloggers family as a mother. My 13 year old son was making eggs at his friends house this morning with cooking oil (he knows better on that) but as he was emptying the pan with his left hand the oil splattered. It burned his right arm from the elbow down to his hand. The worst part is the second degree burns on his wrist with the entire forearm and hand are 1st degree burns bordering on the line of 2nd degree.

He is in immense pain and agony. I know this isn’t an emergency but as a mother I’m having a difficult time seeing my son hurting so bad.

The reason I wrote this post was to reach out to all of you for prayers, good vibes, positivity, support, advice, kindness or anything else. I thank you all for taking the time to read this.


Interview with myself


My emotional background is developed with the answers to the following questions.

Name: Jennifer (aka Jen)

Age: 34 years old


  1. What is your greatest fault or flaw? My greatest fault was not taking care of my health issues seriously in my 20’s because I was in denial.
  2. What is your greatest strength? Standing up for what I believe in and learning from my past to better my future.
  3. What do you hate? Technically, I believe you shouldn’t hate things. You can disagree or dislike but never hate.
  4. What do you love? I love my family and boyfriend. I also love/thankful for each new day.
  5. What is your greatest fear? Is staying positive and showing others that our past, health, and more doesn’t define us!
  6. What is your dream? I have two dreams, one becoming a motivational speaker and writing a book. My third dream is finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes.
  7. What is your overall goal for your blog? I hope I can be a positive influence, motivating, inspiring, encouraging, and more to my fellow followers, readers, and bloggers.

Happy Anniversary!!!


Happy anniversary to my boyfriend, Ryan.  It has been 7 years today.  In some states we would be married by common law. Even though we haven’t taken the next step, marriage, we have our reasons.  We know the day will come but my soul mate, true love, babe, or just my man Ryan, has a wish for our wedding day.

That WISH is:

“Jen I want you to be healthy when you walk down the aisle and strong enough to enjoy our wedding, reception, and honeymoon.”

Ryan has been by my side through it all and he is my hero.  He has never judged me by my past, health issues, and always loved me for me!

Happy Anniversary, my love! I have loved through it all.  I still remember our 1st date and how I couldn’t wait to call my mom because I knew that very night you were the one and I finally found true love.  Thank you!  I love you!!!

The Burning Question


I have this burning question in my head. I thought by now I would have it, understand it, or know something more than I do now, which is not one thing. I know I thought I had it many times. One thing I know is I’m not anywhere near it. I honestly believe I should have it, or at least sometime soon. I deserve it and so does EVERYONE. I think I need to understand it before I experience it. One problem, I need that someone to figure it out with to be able to have and live with it. 

Should you not know what I’m speaking of, you will very shortly. PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE,which patience I seem to not have much of. I guess I will have to wait and wait because I have faith I will find it. 

One thing I will do until then, is ask the forever burning question…..

What is LOVE?


Feelings of “LOVE….”


The world has taken on a new meaning

Colors have become vibrant and fragrances richer

You have me floating and wondering if I will ever come down

The MOST FRAGRANT flower, MY HEART, is opening once again

My normal controls have been melted away and replaced with
