I realize I haven’t posted in awhile. So I figured I should do a post updating everyone. I know I usually make multiple posts in a week, but I’ve been super busy so it’s been difficult to post, write, & think.

I am the mother of a nine year old daughter. So I’ve tried to enjoy this summer with her. With doing so, I haven’t had as much time for blogging. I figure family time is more important than writing my blog. I have enjoyed every moment I spent with her this summer, but the rants and the attitude from her could have eased up a bit. She’s been gone for two weeks with her grandma to Texas. I realized how much I’ve missed her! I really do love my little mini me!

Penny, my shih tzu, recently has started going blind. She’s been my best friend for 15 years! With all the horrible things I’ve been through she’s always been my best friend.  Never can I remember her not being by my side or at the door wagging her tail because I was only gone for five minutes. Seeing her as I slip away from her breaks my heart as if it’s my own child. I’ve never realized I will have to take more care of her as she is like an elderly adult. I’m actually contemplating buying a papoose to carry her in like a baby.  I figure few extra pounds won’t hurt me it’s like a workout she can just ride along all day.

Recently in the last month had a friend pass away. He was one of my biggest supporters and my dearest friends. Brandon Edwards was a friend I’ve known for over a decade. He was a really good guy and a true friend. He was shot in a senseless act of violence in Jonesboro, Arkansas.  That fell the week of the Miss Street Machine Nationals and that really got in my head.

I’ve been bothered by the police killings. I have many friends who are in law enforcement as well as family members. It breaks my heart to think about some of these young girls growing up without their daddies. I know these men, they are really good cops and even better men. You know I call Dallas home, & I’ve been broken by the acts of violence that took place.  I have several friends in the Fort Worth/Dallas area that are married two police officers. It makes my heart ache for them!

On a positive note I did pick up a sponsorship from Inception Labs!  Great company and I’m so proud they believe in me! They found me I did not look for them and that tells me I’m doing something right for a change!

I’ve gained muscle mass in all areas. Another reason I haven’t had time to make posts is because I’ve been training pulling two to three a days. If I can get all the funds together God willing, I’m wanting to compete spring 2017 with NPC. 

That’s all for now and I will post soon I promise. I want to thank you for your continued support and best wishes to you all. And please don’t forget we need more love last night. The concept of One Life mattering more than another is ridiculous! If I can give blood and a black person needs it and they use it and it helps them then my blood is no different than his! Vice versa for police officers!
