You Are Never Alone

It’s been said before that if it doesn’t kill you, then it makes you stronger.

Well, my assailant didn’t kill me – though he threatened to kill me, and my son too – and he did help me to finally break the cycles of victimization I was going through. To that end, yes indeed, he did […]

The Big Picture

I was talking to a friend recently over a cup of coffee and I told him I wasn’t even sure what Founder CEO means anymore. This is the way I am usually introduced whenever I’m speaking. Of course I know the literal translation, but I wasn’t sure what it meant in the overall scheme of […]

Beyoncé and Hypocrisy… Here We Go Again…

Beyoncé is just another big name celebrity who joins the anti-cop bandwagon. During this past Super Bowl Sunday’s football game, both she and Bruno Mars were the featured entertainment for the half-time show. Sadly, she chose to make a political statement.

♥ Let me be very open and honest…. ♥

I have never been a fan or supporter of Valentine’s Day!

As a woman, I think it sets up men to fail…

OK… I may not have dated in decades, I’m not in love and no one is intimately in love with me. Honestly, I’ve never had a Valentine. I’m not sad, disappointed, angry, bitter or jealous…!!!

In […]
