The Cornerstone Challenge: highlights uniqueness

We all are unique in our own way so what is yours? I think people would say my uniqueness is how I help family and take care of them. Taking care of others when some people would day you are grown take care of yourself. I believe I learned that from my parents. Growing up they would let other family members stay with us. Doing what ever I can just like my parents to help others out.

The Cornerstone Challenge: perception

My perception that I am not in control of my life and have to pray for God to help me. I work hard and do my best to keep silent and not be a trouble maker at work and still get treated wrong. I know God is in control and he will get me out of this and into a great career where he wants me. I see my self leaving my current employer soon. Hard work and long hours are okay when you are appreciated and treated good. Soon God will put the right job in my path I just have to keep my faith and keep praying that he will soon.

The Cornerstone Challenge: EMOTIONS

How do you handle your emotions? Some are easier than others depending on the situation. Life is a filled with emotions everyday from happy sad angry just look up to God to help you through them.

Romans 8:37

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

I was full of emotions when my life changed for the best( at the time I just seen my world crumbling down around me. The day was when I came home to find my husbands wedding ring on the counter with a note under it. He said he loved me just wasn’t in love with me and he took what he wanted. Little did I know God was opening up a new chapter in my life that would give me memories that I cherish today. I went back to school and got diploma in Medical Administrative Assistant. Later that year I moved to Oklahoma to help take care of my uncles with my dad and aunt. I was blessed to be able to do that and have that precious time with family there. Unfortunately we lost one uncle in April and then lost my mom in August. Spending time with them having fun doing things making memories.

Then God brought me back home to Texas for when my grandson was born. One of the best and happy emotion you could have. So from the worst emotion to the happiest you roll with the punches.

Life is full of surprises good and bad. Have you ever had a dream that felt so real that you keep it tucked away in the back of your mind? I have two different dreams and a vision(is all I can think to call it). The first was a dream about a 16 year old (thought it was myself) that was in a casket in a uniform. The second was not living past 30 ( that couldn’t be me cause I am still here). I believe the first dream was about my niece. The reason I say this is because it is so strange how it brought that dream back to the forefront of my mind. The Sunday after thanksgiving my sister called and asked me to come get her and take her to where my niece was hit at. We got there and they had her in the ambulance she was being taken to JPS. We got there for a long night and the worse call I had to ever make to my dad. He got a hold of my brother mom and aunt to come to the hospital from oklahoma cause the news wasn’t a positive feeling. At 8:10 am they pronounced her brain dead a precious angel went to be with the LORD. So did that dream come true or is it just my imagination?

The second dream was about a thirty year old female……. thought it was me. She passed away so far this one has not happened and I hope it doesn’t.

The vision I say was of my grandmother after she passed away. My mom was in my bed and I was in the twin bed that belonged to my son. We were watching a movie and feel asleep after a little bit I woke up. At the end of my bed where mom was sleeping I seen an angel figure that was my grandma. She come to warn us by saying you’ll have cancer. Thinking it was me she was talking to it stuck with me. Unfortunately mom did not do her part at going getting check ups. She was the one that was being warned!!! On July 6,2013 she was diagnosed with aggressive form of cancer. She took her last breath August 25,2013. Was this a vision or just a coincidence? Listen and take action cause you never know for sure what is being told to you.

The Cornerstone Challenge: MEMORIES

When all you have left is memories you wished you had made more and took more pictures to share with family. Growing up we did not go on vacation to different places or travel further than Oklahoma. We went to Oklahoma to visit dads side of the family. I loved going and visiting my Aunt she taught me how to be a cool Aunt and grandma as I got older. Her and I would go skating, movies, lake, and shopping. A few years ago her and I went to Santa Fe for a girls trip to see if we could sell pottery that my uncle bought. We had a blast and need to go do it again soon!!

As much as I can I try to make a memory that family will remember when everyday. Cause tomorrow is not promised. I want them to have fun times to look back at like the one of my nephew taking me for a ride on is battery operated motorcycle when he was little. I try to make fun memories with him like I did his sister when she was growing up til she got killed.

Making memories with my son and his family everyday from playing games, cooking, baking, swimming, exercising, or taking trips.

When memories is all you have you wished you had a chance to make more! Do yourself a favor and take the time to make those precious memories little ones grow up you grow old and parents grow old and die. So remember to day is a present from Gold cause tomorrow isn’t promised and all you’ll have are precious memories.

We all need to be encouraged once in awhile not matter if you are a kid or adult. I encourage my grandkids to get up and help in the kitchen cooking breakfast like this morning. We made biscuits cinnamon rolls bacon and eggs. They got the table ready after the breakfast was put in the pans. Later they will be encouraged to help with house work. I encourage them to plant flowers and keep them watered to watch them grow and learn how to take care of things.

The Cornerstone Challenge: FEAR

We all fear the unknown especially with what has been going on this year. We just have to put our fear away and put on the armor of GOD to help us through these times of uncertainty. My fear is when the grandkids go back to school they just truly don’t understand what is going on. They are doing online course which is what my grandson ended up finishing his first year of school last school year. This is my granddaughters first year of school so she is starting out online and hopefully they all get to go back face to face without the worry of COVID-19. I worry about my family every day I have been working through this from day one. Processing medical records from hospitals we touch the papers all day long so you just pray that all germs have died before you get the records. So fear is all around us daily. God bless and keep us all safe.
