WINNING!!!

Even with the ease of shopping right at my fingertips, during this past holiday season, I was remiss in fulfilling my gift list.

Last year (I say that just for effect) I kept delaying the purchase of my son’s Christmas present because honestly, 1) I wasn’t quite sure the best option and 2) it was all too possible he may already have bought whatever he mentioned was of interest to him. I put way too much pressure on myself to choose wisely when I can rest assured he’ll always appreciate whatever I give him. My son was raised to understand a present of any kind is nothing to balk at, so he knows better than to sneer at a gift or its giver.

Anyway, while he was home my son and I talked much about President Obama and we also watched Michelle Obama’s Netflix special Becoming. He mentioned wanting to read both their latest works, along with that of his favorite soccer coach, Arsène Wenger. That bit of information helped me determine what to order, thankful for Amazon’s two-day delivery.

Since A Promised Land and Becoming are on my list of reads too, I was able to get a little treat for myself, as well. I need something riveting to keep my attention until I’m free to go galavanting through the city again.

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
