Spring cleaning

Hey Mamas!
Spring is approaching soon and we know what that means... time to clean out the old & bring in the new. It's time to update your facial products. your skin most times changes with the seasons. Many times our skin will get immune to the products we use over and over again. When switching your products start one product at a time. First try changing your cleanser then toner and so on. If some of your three basic regimen products still work nicely on your skin keep them but try a new mask or facial scrub. It's time to renew our skin and look fun and fresh for the beautiful season Spring!!!!

The grudge

I must say it's so hard to find a picture expressing the emotion or action of having a grudge. In search of a picture I came to understanding most times a grudge can't be seen. When a person has a grudge towards you it's not usually expressed physically. Occasionally you can pick up on the vibe of grudge if your sensitive enough to how others treat you. What is a grudge? How does a grudge come about?
Looking up the definition I came to see a grudge embodies many negative feeling such as bitterness, jealousy, envy, and malice. It's an extreme resentment towards another because of so called wrong doing. Grudges usually come about because you are offended by someone and never confront the person about your hurt.
I often see my oldest son Jasiyah and his cousin Isaiah get into fights or arguments. Right away when they are hurt by one another its expressed . One will scream,"You hurt me ,I'm not your friend no more". It's funny how children can be so honest and open about their feelings without harboring them inside. It is said if someone offends you to come to them alone and tell them their offence.
Most often we confide in others our hurt instead of letting that person who has offended know their fault. Sometimes we spread rumours without really examining the entire situation. If the time is taken to talk to that person you might just find out that person is truly sorry or find out somethings about yourself. I my self have carried grudges but its a heavy bag to carry. I think it's time we but down the heavy bags and open them so we can get rid of all that's weighing us down. Sometimes we say we are okay or cool with whomever has created the the offence, but how can you be alright if it never was talked about? Knowing that a grudge contains so much negativity, why would we want to carry so much hate? Think about it.

Life & Death

Hey Mamas, its been awhile. We all know life can get you tangled up and you have no time for certain things you love to do. I'm back and have a lot to talk about. I have to start my return back on a sad note. My husband just lost his father not too long ago. I just recently heard my cousin just lost her dog. Whether it be a person or animal if it's someone dear to your heart the pain will overcome you. I also see when it's a parent or sibling it affects you more than others. It is said in life we will lose but we will gain. No one can replace the one you lost but through your mourning never forget who you still have in your life. As life ends for some I await a life to come and experience the world. Life and death its a circle that keeps going. My heart goes out to all that have lost someone close to them. When death comes that person must go where they have to go and you must keep living and remember them. Their spirit may be gone and the flesh buried but your memories of them can never fade.
