...growing pains...that might leave a mark!

week in review...

this has been a week of growing pains.

all i can say is...


i would love to have some deep tidbit of wisdom to share.

alas, such is not the case. really, all i have is...


the good news is---i am still standing! thank God there is always an upside...

that image hurts me to just look at it said...

Focused Purpose!

I have missed reading your words!

You are crucially needed in a discussion over at my "house" about black women and sexual ethics...and in a discussion from Saturday about the modern day slave auction of black women in this country in 2008...

Your perspectives are sorely needed to add more meat to the stew!

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

T, yep, growing pains. ouch!

Lisa, this week is dealing with me. i have a teenager that has lost his whole mind. i remember being rebellious and all knowing as well---i recognize the energy. i am just saying it is difficult to get a handle on it right now. i wrestle with a bad temper and consistent button pushing is growth i could skip right now:-)God's sense of humor never ceases to amaze me! when i pray for patience i get a challenge that tests me to no homicidal end! the boy had better thank God i place a premium on freedom!!!

bear with me sis. i will come visit soon. promise.

I'm scared to think about what I'm actually seeing in that picture, focusedpurpose! That must be some kind of pain!

Hope things are going well with your new move. I know how disruptive that can be.

welcome Queen:-) i am always happy to know that you came throught. i love love love your blog!

thanks for your kind words. it all gets done in the end.

my teenager knows when i am stressed. he takes leave of his total mind. kindda like i did when my mother was on the phone engrossed in conversation. i would go to town with asking for stuff! she fixed me with the "no questions" while i am on the phone. i have to be clever and come up with my rule that will nip the nonsense in the bud.

blessings sis,

LOL I used to do the same thing. :-)

Btw I read everyone's blogs, but often can't comment due to time constraints... so I recently decided to lower my post rate in order to become more involved in other people's blogs.

Hi focusedpurpose.

Go easy on the guy, it is tough being a kid, especially in this day in age. :)

As far as growing pains, I am going through some myself. I am about to graduate from college in a week and the world is really starting to look quite big and quite scary personally.
