I don’t have a lot of words tonight. My heart is sick & my stomach is in knots. Seeing our Country at such a low is unbearable. I can’t check the news any longer. I cannot make sense of such utter nonsense. This is what we need people. Black men & women. White men & … More Stop it. Do Something Better.
All day i’ve been thinking of what i would write about this evening. I had several thoughts swirling around in my brain and then something happened tonight that trumped any idea my brain could’ve conceived. And i owe it all to an upcoming piano recital & the sweetest 7-year old girl i’ve ever known. This … More Give.

Don’t worry, i’ve read all the books all the so-called experts have written about how emotionally … More No-sayer. And proud of it.

I’m having a bit of an identity crisis lately. Not in the way you may think though. I’m trying to figure out who ELSE i am…you know….besides Nichole: wife of James, mother of our 4 little Crabblings, homeschool teacher, domestic goddess, unpaid chauffeur, sister, daughter, friend, etc….
