Growing Up Poor During The Hoildays

Since I was around 5 years old I knew what it meant to be the "less fortunate." Before Thanksgiving and Christmas would come around and until I was about 12 years old I started bracing myself mentally to be viewed as a charity case.

Nobody Said That It Was Going To Be Easy | But Worth It

I'm actually the proud mama of a two week old baby boy! Damn, time really is passing by quickly even if it doesn't seem like it to almost folks. Just last week I was sitting in my bedroom holding my baby boy after breast feeding him and the tears started to come. I was having a break down for a necessary breakthrough.

I'm Blessed To Be A Mother

I am very blessed to proclaim that I am officially a mother. On Sunday, October 29th, 2017 at 2:53 pm I gave birth to a 7 pound and 11-ounce baby boy that my husband and I named Eli Alan Hurd. I was 40 weeks and two days pregnant. On his birthday cried so many tears of joy that day that my eyes were super puffy. It took me an hour to push him out and just seconds to realize that my life had changed for the better.
