Monday night was Mansfield High School's graduation and my little cousin was graduating!!!

Oh I am so proud of her!!!
She has been more of like a little sister than a cousin ... And I can not wait to see her do great things in life!!

She also was a scholarship recipient!! Yay!!!

They all gave flowers to thier parents for appreciation. So sweet.

I know it is super blurry but it's the best the ol iPhone could do but that is the big diploma!!

Yay! Congratulations Whitnie!

Can't end the post until I show you this:

That's right ... You see it?
There was a guy that graduated and his name was
Pryce Izz Wright


Congrats to all the graduates of 2012 ... Make your own way in this world ... Trust God and Dream big!!!

Oh the job of motherhood

I hate these feelings when you have no idea what you should do


Happy Mother's Day!!

I consider this year as my 9th Mother's Day ....

because if some of you don't know I lost a baby girl back in 2006 and eventhough she isn't here with me...I still feel the responsibility to not forget her...to not let her slip from our memories....to make sure that her headstone looks like it just happened....that it will  never look "forgotten" ....

I still have motherly duties to her
and I am proud of those duties
I love them!

And I have my precious baby girl Lyla here with me which I truly believe was my gift straight from God.

That girls brings out the best and worst in me
But I wouldn't trade her for all the precious jewels in this world!!

I consider myself honored to be able to celebrate a Mother's Day!

And I would not be the mother I am today if it wasn't for my wonderful friends who pulled me through tough times...reminded me that we all make mistakes...we all get off schedule..we all eat junk food for dinner for sometimes....it's ok to throw rules to the wind and just have fun!!

I thank all my "mother friends"

Happy Mother's Day!!!
