I am thankful for.....

I am thankful for the memories that go along with the above picture. I am also thankful for my awesome family and especially for hurricane katrina and the experiences that followed along with meeting Mike. Without those events happening I would not have my wonderful family and if I did have a family with any one else I would most likely not be happy. So I am thankful for all things that have happened in my life whether negative or positive. Thanks to all! Have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving everyone. :)

A letter to myself

Dear Self,
Seven years ago my life was changed forever. One in the year 2005 I had what I thought was an awesome job and goal to finish school, get my own apartment, earn some credit. All of these things happened except for finishing school in MS. On August 1, 2005 I moved into my own apartment. My credit is still down the drain but it will be fixed one day. Anyway a little less than a month later a huge storm that I refer to as Camille's daughter Katrina came ashore on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and surrounding areas. You do not know this now but in a week you will get a job as a debri monitor and meet a really awesome guy. However, the connection will get lost along the way and then reconnect again. In November that awesome guy will call you and ask if you want to still hang out? Of course, you reply not fully knowing how this guy will impact you or your future life. Fast forward to April 17, 2006 around 8:00 P.M. MS time and you will be on your way moving to GA. What?, you think and you will begin an exciting new life in a whole different time zone. Around six months from there you will get a job and shortly there after you will find out that a baby will be born. Then the first ultrasound of what you believe is one baby will turn out to be two babies. You then fall off the table, not really but you want too. Anyway, you have been a lucky mom that was able to stay home with them for what is now six years.
Recently, you have tried to find a job but for whatever the reason you are having some bad luck. Oh yeah I forget to mention that along the way you get married and are enjoying life as much as possible. However, again some medical issues have come along the way with your life. Be strong and brave even on the toughest days when your back feels like it is going to pound open and your having some rough nausea. Remember what does not kill you makes you stronger. You will get through this and make it. As I sit here writing this letter to my self and think I must be strong and get through it I just wonder..... Are there any doctors that truly care about their Patients or is it just a preside that they feel they must maintain to keep them as patients? I felt that I found a doctor that cared and I think he truly does but the one I was referred to see to have a procedure done just makes me think she really only cares about who is paying and who is not. And so as an end result I am stuck in misery at the moment. As a poor 47% that has six people in the household we somehow make too much money on the scale for family medicaid. Another thing is that our lovely state of GA does not want to implement the health care bill until after the November elections in hopes that the bill will be repealed. Our governor does not want to pay a crap load of money for families and people in general who cannot afford health insurance. So back on track to self again. Keep doing the things you do and know that good things really do come to those who wait. While you are waiting make sure to apologize even when you are right or wrong, Love unconditionally even when it seems impossible and to the fullest. Laugh often and stay positive because it will come in handy when you are feeling at your worse. Just remember to always be you no matter what others want or feel you should be because when you are you it is real and not fake. Love, Self

Who Am I?

I am the women who has gone insane and will return soon. Ha, from the beginning now, I am from the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. I was raised there from the time I was two years of age until the eve of my twenty fifth birthday. This is how it all came about.....On August 29, 2005 a huge storm with the name of Katrina decided to move herself over the Bay St. Louis and Pass Christian areas of MS. Along with that came damage across three states which included Louisiana, Alabama and Florida. Anyhow, I met Mike on September 7, 2005 as a debris monitor. The day before my wallet happened to get stolen because I left my windows down and car unlocked, needless to say I had to get a new driver's license. Anyway, it was along the way that I saw Mike, texted my new phone number and finally received a phone call from him that brought him into my life at a time when I really needed it but did not know it at the time. To be honest I thought it would turn out to be just some fun and I would not see him anymore. Nope it is not how it went and my life has changed any so many awesome ways since then. On April 17, 2006 I moved to LaGrange, GA with Mike and about six months later found out we were gonna have twin boys, weird I know, Water, food, age and environment can influence twins. On May 5, 2007 Aiden and Caiden Smallwood arrived. They are now in Kindergarten and it has been a wonderful and exciting ride along the way. I love all the new things that they learn and I love their story's along with all of the things that they do even the bad sometimes is adorable. I have learned to say Yes just a little more. Still working on that issue. Mike and I were married on September 27, 2008 and married life has not changed much of our relationship. Mike is and always will the best thing that ever happened to me at the lowest point in my life, my best friend that I never had and the forever I believe he is my soul mate. Well that is all about me for now so I check back later.
