I read my Bible daily, because I want to be the best person that God has called me to be. The verse above is my favorite of all verses. It reminds me that God is in control, and I don't have to be. It also reminds me of other Bible verses like Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." Therefore, all I have to do is trust in Him and His word, but what better way to do that than to constantly read my Bible and pray...
I became a teacher to motivate and inspire our youth to be the best that they can be. This video is perfect on how I feel. Everyone can be great at something. We all just need to find that something and push it as they say, "the sky is the limit." Do your best at EVERYTHING you do!!! Even if you don't like whatever it is that you are doing, remember "It is what you make of it; so make it the BEST!"
I have five, yes 5, boys that I have raised basically on my own. Three of them are now grown and are amazing young men, not perfect, but they still rock my world! My two babies, the youngest of the five are also pretty amazing, even though they drive me crazy sometimes. I love them all, each for their individual strengths and weaknesses. My boys are my world <3
MaKale is my eldest son who played football for Whittier and Redlands University. I loved going to his games and watching him play, with so much passion and determination. I love this clip, which shows a little bit of how he played, willing to sacrifice his own safety to make that catch!!!
I love going to the movies, and most of the time I'm going with my boys. Kevin Hart is my favorite comedian, and I admire Dwayne Johnson. Both of these people have had tough times, which makes then even more admirable. I know that I will be taking my boys to see Jumanji 2, because we loved Jumanji 1 . It looks like it's action packed, and you know their will be laughter with Hart and Johnson.
Sushi is my all time favorite food, but to know that what I love to eat has health benefits, is always a plus! What's really great about sushi besides flavor, is that my whole family enjoys eating sushi as well. The only bad part about this is, when we all go out to eat sushi as a family, it can be very expensive. :(
I love shopping especially at outdoor shopping centers, like Victoria Gardens. They give me an old-fashioned feel. I like the feel of going into smaller boutiques or specialty shops as I stroll down the side-walk in the sunshine, rather than be in a closed-in mall of the 80's.
Cheerleading is not only something I love, but I was on squad in my younger years and I am the cheer advisor at Colony High School. In the past I was the cheer advisor here at Colony for five years, but now I'm back and excited to this again, with my cousin as the cheer coach. I love working with the girls. Now, remember I only have boys, but I am a true girly-girl, even though cheer is anything but a girly sport. It's hard core and our girls put in a lot of work!
James Baldwin is an amazing author. This is one of my favorite plays that I read years ago. This is based on the murder of Emmitt Till. Though I read this once, a long time ago, just thinking about this story gives me chills with a melancholy disposition. Unfortunately, we still deal with racism and the effects of such hatred today. I urge people to watch or read this play, which hopefully will bring a change in each one of us and dissipate our own prejudices.
I just really like Bruno Mars' music! He is a good artist, with catchy songs and lyrics. I really wish that I could afford to go to concert in November at the Forum, but tickets start at $260.00 each, which actually goes to prove that his tickets are in high demand. :) To be honest, I really do like the things he talks about in this song- diamonds, shopping, romantic times are all good things!
