I have. It has taken two months for me to finally say " I am done". I accept the situation and I am at peace with it.
Really think about the question and let me know your thoughts.
Why me? Why not?

How Do You Love?
How do you love someone that continues to go down destructive paths no matter how much guidance you try to offer?
How do you love someone that always points out the negative but never seems to see the positive?
How do you love that boss that always takes the credit for the successes, but points their fingers anytime something fails?
How do you love that neighbor who refuses to monitor their children’s behavior and allows them to wreck havoc on the entire neighborhood?
How do you love that family member or friend that is always asking for a hand-out but is always unavailable if you need assistance?
How do you love that mean usher that refuses to smile or be polite at church?
How do you love your ex-husband or wife who refuses to make the children a priority?
How do you love that parent that was completely absent from your life as a child?
God gives the answer to these and every other, “How do you love …?” question in John 15:12. Simply put God says, “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”
Whoa, do you know what this means?
It means you can’t keep count of the times they let you down. You can’t constantly remind them of what they’ve done. You can’t attach conditions to your love. You can’t withhold your forgiveness towards them.
Love is not passive, it’s an action word. It won’t always be easy to love but God commands it, therefore we must try to show the love of God to everyone we come in contact with even if we don’t think they deserve it.
So yes, I know that woman at the checkout counter was just very rude to you … love her anyway!
Scripture Of The Day: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." - John 13:34 (NIV)

This weekend was just horrible. I haven't had a weekend like this in awhile, so I guess it was time. Let's see, it rained, and rained and rained. That in itself was enough to make my weekend dreary.
I am not one to be in the rain for any reason, but I braved it to go out to dinner with two of my closest friends. I hadn't seen them in awhile and I didn't want to reschedule again. So for friendship, I braved the rain. This is when the bad hair came in. For those of you that know me, I try to keep my DIVA style in check at all times. Never know when a camera is around...lol. I decided to get a new do. I went shopping with my best gal pal and we chose a gorgeous hair piece by the name of "Mariah". She looked more like Sasha Fierce, so that's what I'm calling her.
I went to have my hair done and was told I couldn't because I didn't purchase "Mariah" at that store. I had to purchase a new do, Ms. "Tori". Now Ms. "Tori" is cute, but she looks like concert, party and old DIVA hair. I hated her... at first. I had to wear her out in the rain, which made me hate her even more. I cried to my friends and my daughter. Sent pictures of how she looked and no one understood my pain. They thought she was cute. After a few flat iron tricks, me and Ms. "Tori" became friends. She's not Sasha Fierce, but she will do.
Why me question: Have you ever had a bad hair day??? I don't mean when your hair is not done. I mean when you have an idea in your head of how you want your hair to be and then it turns out completely the opposite and you can't do a thang about it??? That kind of bad hair day. Or when you see a style you like and ask someone if they can duplicate it and they say yes. Then once they are finished, it looks nothing like what you pictured???
Today is a better day!!! I am feeling much better and Ms. Tori is doing her thang, so my co-workers and friends tell me. Thanks Ladies, you always know how to put a smile on my face.
I may have Ms. Tori on for a few more weeks, then Sasha Fierce will make her grand entrance.
Why me?? Why not??
