I had to look at it this way, if God wanted & needed them to be around & in the picture He would have made it to be just like that. So, when I finally got over my feelings about the matter AND REALIZED that God has kept us far better than any man could have. And thru it all we're still here in our right mind and the blessing of the Lord is on my household. Then holding on to nonsense is not important. However, what is important is God has a purpose & a plan for our lives, and He knows why He created them to come out of my womb & to be raised by me in the manner that they have been. I, too used to long for a positive male role model in their lives who would be there for them, spend quality time w/ them, sit down talk & share with them. :-) Is it better to have one here with them that's not a good father or to not have one at all? Which is best? And keep in mind, I'm not their mother & father, I'm only their mother. God is their Father & my Father. And we expect nothing but His best for us, cause nothing else will do.!!! The funny part of all of this is I looked at it like I COULDN'T do it alone. And Boy, wasn't I wrong! I felt like it was suppose to be two. Lol... I hope them all the best that God have for them & I don't want to let nothing stand in their way, not even me! You do know mothers make mistakes too right. There is a part I played in this issue as well you know. So, I can't abandon them, who else gonna do it if I don't? My point exactly.
What happen to Ep. 11 & 12? Anyway, Season 2 Ep.15 "Tommy" : Sometimes being a woman & left with the responsibility to look after, raise, support, train up & care for male children while along could be very scary! I, myself am a mother of 2 sons without either of their fathers being apart of their lives. I never understood that but I have come to accept the fact that its what I had to walk thru in this life. That alone almost killed me! Lol... A mother with no girls & I'm left to raise not 1 son but 2 sons from a baby to a man? Wow! How can u talk to a male about what u don't have the answers to yourself? Kids tend to do what they see others do. And me being female? All I knew was female stuff. Lol... I for a long time was hurt, sad, mad, pissed, angry etc because their fathers didn't s**** around to be apart of their lives. And to be honest, I used to just want a break! Lol... Anyway, being that its been just them & me, EVERY summer, mostly every school break/holiday my children would b with my sister/best friend, who is married & have 6children(2girls4boys) & small grandkids now. This is the very 1st summer that my sons didn't go & spend the summer with them, & believe me we all were shocked they didn't this year. Lol... Even when they went, I missed them after week #2 for real. Then I would go & just spend weeks at a time there while they was there too. (I can't tell u if they liked that or not) lol.. But when it was time to leave they all would be so sad, & I would be too but I knew I had to do what I had to do. I love my family. That's why they are my A-Team, ride or die team players, thru the good & the bad, the ups & downs. That's my family! :-) They do what they can, when they can & how they can. I have learned that u can't make no one do something they don't wanna do, for whatever the reason is. I wouldn't trade my 2 sons for the world cause they are my world -my past, my present & my future! :-) So, I think we gonna keep on going to see what the end gonna be!!!! :-) It's been a GREAT experience & I'm thankful now for it ALL!! :-) Peace!!!!! :-)
Hi Tyler, would you please share more inspirational videos? Please. Thanks. "Keep The Faith."
Tyler, I was so shocked to see Nephew Tommy on FBOFW Saturday night (Saturday in the Middle East). How awesome!!!! I love his character and I loved that he had a love for Jennifer. I'm not promoting unhealthy living but I am promoting the we all come in different shapes and sizes. And to see a larger sister being wooooed by a fine brother like Tommy gave me some hope. Alot of guys love the size 2-10 girls, but that does not indicate how healthy they are. Kudos to you Tyler, keep Nephew Tommy on the show!!!!
Hi T, a couple of things b4 I turn it in for tonight. #ForBetter or Worse Yes, it was good to see Jennifer smiling, and Nephew Tommy on the show this week also. They both did well I believe. Great Show. Also, of course I got to see you on a few photos from the #Sparkle Red Carpet Weekend and that was great. It's always good to see you. It tends to make my day even brighter. :-) And are you aware that it's 1ST LADY Serita Jakes Birthday today (Sunday ) Yes that today not tonight when I'm just now getting in bed. LOL... I can't wait to see you in action in Alex Cross on October 19th. ALSO, Don't you have a b-day coming up really SOON? :-) LOL... OK! LOL... OK, :-) you are like this girl know a little too much of my business. LOL... LOL... LOL... But ITS ALL GOOD. GOOD night TTYL.... P.S. at least Im not a Hater!!!!!! LOL... Gotta go, gotta get up in 4 hours. Peace ;-)
Talk To You Later.... Ttyl! Goodnight and hope to see you SOON! YES!!!!! :-) SONG: COME AND TALK TO ME.... COME & TALK TO ME....
This is so true. The answers really are already there.
...LIKING the look on Jennifer.
Now for S2, Ep.9 "Close But No Cigar" Q&A: Before I get into the Q &A's I would like to add that I was looking the look on Jennifer, the hair looked very well with her. :-) Does effort count in cooking? Lol... #ForBetter. Yes, effort counts. And let me also add if he didn't want me to cook & decided he would rather cook for me instead that would be EVEN BETTER!!!!!! Yes, thank You Jesus! No, argument there :-). Is honesty the best policy when it comes to your feelings? Now that's a tricky question! Honesty & truth might hurt at 1st but in the long run its all for the best. All that faking & pretending is for the birds. It's call communicating, communication, talking w/ each other, learning 1 another, respecting 1 another, growing w/ 1 another. Together we stand, divided we fall. Not trying to be like the Jones, cause the Jones' ain't all what u think they are in the 1st place. So, why would u wanna be them :-)? Does Joseph need to support Leslie no matter what? ***no comments, at this time.*** Okay, is Leslie being crazy now? Yes! She isn't sure if she wanna be married, not married, have a child, live w/ a man or just say yes, when he ask her to marry him EVEN IF he didn't have the ring yet. What will happen if he gave her the ring & she lost it would that make them not a couple? Lol... Lol.... What if he did give her a ring & it was small or a bubble gum, candy ring instead of the bear, what then would she have said? My question is why is anybody with somebody & you or them aren't sure if u want each other but you're living together? What sense do that make? And if u are having sex it is possible to get pregnant so why do we honestly be so shocked when it happens? Just crazy, confused, lost, & etc... Lol... Lol... Lol.... Lord, have mercy Jesus! Help us! #ForBetter. :-)
Mommy Dearest Season 2 Ep10 Q &A: Should it be the daughter's....mother's needs? #ForBetter. Answer: what need was it? Because Tina told her mom the truth about going out on dates w/ men who meant her no good & coming back home worse than u went! So, what need were there? Cause in the end the daughter was correct in the point to her mother, not the mother in this case. Yes, Jennifer was clearly overreacting over a temporary date w/ someone she only wanted to have fun with. My question is, is it really fun or not after all? Jennifer didn't show Tina no tough love, her daughter Tina showed her the truth, clearly she couldn't see it & wasn't ready to accept it. Now the question remains do Jennifer need to get her ACT together, not Tina, in this case. Yes, Im aware the question was moreso about babysitting her lil brother while her mom goes out & keep making a fool of herself in front of herself. Now, u tell me which 1 needs to get their act together, for better? Miss V is the voice of reason. Great Job, Miss V, cause the way she put it was understandable but without all the facts & true INSIGHT! :-)
You reminded me to question myself for the answer is in my hand. yes, you are correct i have the answer that can help pull me and my son out his situation but i need that door to open for me. The Chapters of My Life will inspire other Dartrisha's out there that was raised in the big city, then moved to the south, had to adjust to that environment then realize 'you did not greeve over the death of your mother, that's what all that anger came from, that's why you ran from him to him to him unsure of the reason for this. Then realizing that layers and layers of memories were supressed and caused alot of the paths that were taken...but the NOW part is: I am still here ready to inspire.
It may be true it could be me and u help me see...Where r U??
I have to say I played that back a few times to get a pen and paper to write each question, and answer them. It was eye opening, and so revealing. I have thank you for making me face the real truths about things we often lie to ourselves about. I have lived my life as a people pleaser because that's whats I was taught by the women in my family. I now understand it's not important to please everyone all the time. I need to be happy and to honestly be a help to anyone else I must help and please myself.
