Magnificent Monday! 😒…. Yeah Right!

We are back at it again! Home Schooling Pre-K3, 3rd grader as well as keeping up with a 2 year old on top of my 8am-4pm full time job and my part time my day is full! But I TRY (keyword) to start my day with a devotional around 7:30am so I can be on my 7:45am Overcomer Prayer call as I do a 20 min Elliptical workouts or 10 min kettlebell workout. While I am doing this I am trying get in a mindset of I CAN DO THIS! God did not have me wake and start my day to feel discouraged and frustrated! He has blessed me to be able to work from home during quarantine so how can I make the best of it? So what I do is I schedule! Literally schedule every piece of my day. With my learning disability this is extremely important if I am going to Thrive! If you ask my mom who calls me during the day you will hear me say, “are you ok?” “Ok can I call

You back? I’m going In a meeting in 10 min” (as I’m ask Joy what number is on the bathroom door and the color toy JJ is holding in his hand). Life is a juggling act but with God’s Grace I will make it through the day!

I wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. I am a 34 year old ( I think.... that’s a story for another day) wife, mother, youth ministry leaders a mother member of Jack and Jill of America Incorporated and proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. I have 3 children Justice 11, Joy 6, and JJ 5 and amazing husband! I was born and raised in the North End of Hartford with 2 amazing and supportive parents. I have a Bachelors in Interpersonal and Relational Communication with a Minor in Psychology, Masters in Special Education and a Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis. For my career I am a Board Certified Behavior Analysis (this was truly a journey). This blog is to show you my everyday life and that by the Grace of GOD I am making it on broken pieces. I am choosing to thrive (not survive) at this mommy thing and I pray that this blog Blesses a Mama out there to keep going!!!!

    Yess!! Agreee Sis, scheduling is key to a productive and successful day!! Schedules and to-do-lists are two of my core tools as well! I never knew you have a learning disability! Deeply learning about ourselves while trusting God’s got us, allows us to develop what works for us, overcome any intended obstacle and share our findings too. 💜 💜 Thank you for sharing!

    Yes, Jen is being truthful. She runs a tight ship. When she is on a mission she doesn’t let anything get in her way! Just ask her Mama! I love my Sunshine and admire her!
