Birthing A DREAM...Can be so emotional

Sunday evening I had a 4 hr talk therapy session with my with my dearest friend Lady E, businesswoman, great woman of Faith and Wisdom....She shared with me and I with her our tears flowed from the path we took to walk in our destinies...I'm overjoyed to hear and witness how she came from 0...divorced with a DREAM in her heart that was bigger than her reality, with 3 mouths to feed, feeding her 3 children bologna sandwiches everydays, a bucket of a car that her children were so embarrassed of that they would ask her to drop the down the street from starting her first group home....then 1 went 2, 2 to 3, etc...No one around her believed in her but herself...she was now in position to buy her and her children a home, then another, and another, etc...then she went from the bucket to a Maxima...then to a Benz...and then paying CASH for her BENTLEY...She was able to give her children the best education..her daughter was accepted to 3 Ivy leagues: Harvard, Princeton and Yale; graduated from Harvard...As tears flowed, she said, "Joyce, I worked hard, all had was bologna to feed my children...We were on welfare...foodstamps...People would criticized me, but I kept believing I could do it. I provide for my children with no help from their father. The man that told me for years I could never do what I AM doing."

Everyone has a story..some may judge her harshly for driving her big beautiful car around on Sundays on her way to church, taking her luxurious cruises (at time all by herself), but if they only Knew her story...if they only knew the struggles and pain she endured...

I know what it takes to birth a DREAM...even in the midst of lost and bewilderment...Having to take care of my dying husband, a man 6' 4" that went from 210 to 137lbs...Having to take him to EVERY doctors appointment, 10 months of chemo (I remember he even had chemo on Christmas Day during the time we took this picture..see picture below), 59 radiation treatments and dealt with all the side effects the treatment the same time in school finishing my prerequisites for med school, having to schedule every aspect of my life, volunteering at Healthcare for the homeless, making sure the boys were straight, 5 years ago he succumbed to cancer on my 40th Birthday. I was left to care for two children ...I was in school full time trying to get accepted medical school...had to fight 7 lawsuits that was trying to intervene on my adoption...all the lies theses "saved" folks told in court was unbelievable...All I had by my side was my mother, the prayers of my family and The Most High God...God stepped in and His Divine Will prevailed.....

Don't judge me for my Bright Smile... My Eternally Optimistic Attitude about LIFE, especially MY LIFE...My LIFE IS FABULOUS ...and it's not about the material things I possess...My Happy, Healthy and Whole sons...because WE went through in Faith believing for brighter days were coming ...Victory Was and IS MINE, OURS...Selah...people comment all the time that, "You look so HAPPY...You HAVE A BRIGHT SMILE"...It's BECAUSE I AM HAPPY...I have The Peace of God...I Have the FAVOR of GOD and man...

  1. I just wanted to say thank you. I needed this today, right at the moment I read this. I was feeling down because I had just gotten my preliminary MCAT score and I was feeling really down about it because it was not nearly what I want it to be or need it to be. I was doubting myself and my decision to apply to osteopathic school. You gave me hope today and I really needed it, so thank you. Today I had to remind myself that this path is not a 100m sprint, it's a marathon. #icandothis
