As the calendar recently rolled into November, I began to think of the upcoming American Thanksgiving holiday and the things in my life that fill me with gratitude. I have a tremendous amount of magnificent people to be thankful for, and chief amongst those is my Mama.
In the simplest of descriptions, my Mama is strong-willed, stubborn, hard-working, funny, charitable, loving and fiercely loyal. She is the picture of a Southern woman who can deliciously “Bless your heart” in the most wickedly kind way and not bat an eye.
Despite having broken her heart frequent times with my years of bad decisions, I remember (more…)

Louisiana by way of Little Rock, Arkansas, and enjoys traveling, attending the theater, cooking calling the Hogs during Arkansas Razorback football season, spending time with family and friends, and is a crazy cat lady.
In addition to obtaining her Bachelors and Masters degree, she also has a Graduate Certificate in Online Writing Instruction and a National HR Certification through SHRM. She excels in her career as a Human Resources Management professional. Additionally, she has represented World Moms Network as a Digital Reporter at various conferences, including the United Nations Social Good Summit.
Her life has been one big adventure in twists, turns ,extreme lows, and highs. After recently embracing her new lease on life and her identity in the LGBTQ community, she is excited about what is yet to come. She can be found on Twitter@TheHunnyB
I was thoroughly delighted when Nicole Morgan at the blog, “By Word of Mouth Musings,” in Florida, USA invited us to be featured on her growing list of “Monday Muses.” Here’s how she defines the list:
a. A guiding spirit.
b. A source of inspiration.
My interpretation …
They encourage and support.
They share and teach. They go that extra mile.
They give freely unto others.
Let’s hope I was able to put into words and capture “the international goodwill” of World Moms Blog. I invite you to please stop by and read my guest post over there, and please comment! (Comments will be closed here.)
And afterwards, be sure to scroll around Nicole’s site and check out her amazing adoption story and her homeschooling resources!
