Cancer Survivor!!!!

I received this wonderful email from Mrs. Heather Von St. James. Her touching story brought me to tears and smiles, because God is so good! I couldn’t wait to share this with you all. I Thank You and your family Heather for picking my blog to share your Inspirational story. You are a strong woman……….

Hi there!

The reason I have reached out to you is because of your blog! I am 44 and a mother to a quirky little 7 year old, Lily. She is my only child, and my whole world. When Lily was just 3 1/2 months old, I was diagnosed with mesothelioma; a type of cancer that kills most people within 2 years. As I’m sure you can imagine, the first thing that came to mind when I was diagnosed was my baby girl and how I wasn’t going to be able to watch her grow up.

After intense treatment and recovery, I’m still here 7 years later and cancer free! My journey with cancer was a terrifying one and I’d like to turn my pain into purpose and become someone that other people can look to for guidance, inspiration, and hope in situations like my own. My husband and I recently participated in a short video about my experience with cancer and I contacted you because I feel that your blog would be an excellent place to share. I’m hoping to use this video as a tool to raise awareness of this horrible little known cancer that is such a deadly killer (and sadly, 100% preventable).

I would love it if you would be willing to share my video on your blog with your readers. Here is the link to my video: http://www.mesothelioma.com/heather

Let me know what you think!

Spending Time….

I absolutely love spending time with family and close friends who bring out the best in me. Nothing could make me happier. We went to visit my dad’s new place, and it was a great surprise that a lot of my brothers and sisters were over. I had the chance to talk with them and catch up on some stuff going on in my life and theirs. We watched a few reality shows, while my new little niece chased my dad’s cat Lucy. Aliyah is adorable by the way. I really enjoyed myself! We laughed, joked, and walked each other out saying our good byes. I look forward to organizing some fun stuff for my family this summer! I want my kids to have Great memories with their family.

Hot Mom of 5!!!! And Proud of it!

“There’s a lot more to being a woman than being a mother, but there’s a hell a lot more to being a mother than most people suspect”  Roseanne Barr

Yes I Said HOT!!! Well let me begin, I am mom to 3 girls ages 18,11,7 and 2 boys ages 14,16. So as you can see I have just about all of the adolescent stages….lol. Well I’m out of the infant and toddler stages for now. I love my big family although it is not easy. My sons play sports. My oldest dude O plays basketball. My young one Tarie (T-Nice 25) plays football.They are doing well in school also. My rule is if grades aren’t good then NO SPORTS!

Now my girls…Mommy’s Divas are doing a lot of things as well. They are doing some modeling. My oldest (we call her B) is working and graduating high school this year. We had a tough time with her, but by the grace of God, she is back on track. My Princess Allyssa is in special ed. for Speech and Language. My princess is very well organized, neat, and knows sign language. Which we use around the house and out if needed. Her speech has drastically improved being she receives excellent education from the staff at her school. She is kind, sweet and always helps me around the house. My Princess is has taught me that although she have a disability, she is going to be fine. I treat all of my kids the same and Princess knows this. In my house my kids are taught to look after each other.

Now my baby girl…My Buttercups Nyann! My Buttercups is very gifted and smart. She is in 2nd grade but during testing in 1st grade her test results put her the end of 2nd grade. She has a funny sense of humor (like me :)) Yes I am funny as well. But my Buttercups say things and we will be wherever laughing out loud at her! At school she is very popular and sometimes the teacher let her be teacher in class. She have a way of motivating and talking to her peers that make them listen to her. Her teacher always have great things to say about her. Around the house we call her “Boss Lady”. Her people skills even works with our family.

As far as me…Hot mom! Well I have a full plate for myself between college, work, and sporting events, their school stuff, church, this list could go on and on. I haven’t begun to tell you how I manage and schedule doctors, dentist, and orthodontist appointments. That is another blog topic…lol. Which I will be touching on soon. But you know I really give all my Thanks to God. Ones close to me know I have been through a lot period. He is who keeps me going and give me strength to do all I have and am doing. Thank You all for stopping by to check me out! Peace
