Life for me lately has been the exact opposite of what I'm used to, and never what I expected. I went from being completely immersed in school and hair (like 50 hrs. a week) to being sick, unmotivated and unemployed. Luckily I have been blessed to be over the sickness, but found myself in a muddle of emotions that I didn't expect. I don't want to sound so dismal, so I will tell you now why I'm thankful. I am forever thankful for my Father in Heaven who listens to me complain, and sends the Holy Ghost when I need a hug. I completely see the wisdom of his ways, and am finally thankful for everything I have experienced thus far. I have had the sweetest, most sacred experiences that I don't necessarily want to share, but my testimony of his love for all of his children has increased. I read a scripture today in a completely new light that I want to put in the nursery: "Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great." D&C 64:33.

Ok, so I walked into Old Navy to purchase some long sleeved T's, and my ears pricked up! They were playing SWV!! Sista's With Voices! I about died! When I was in middle school I was in love with R & B type music for some reason. My tape collection consisted of: EnVogue, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Toni Braxton and of course SWV. I remember turning up my tape player and walking down the stairs of my sister's bunkbed like I was walking down to the "stage" while belting out the lyrics as loud and soulful as I could! I am tempted to re-live my glory days as a diva and find those tapes and blast them in my living room! As the above picture proves, the dream hasn't died!
