There is a lot to be said about the way you treat people who need you, and those who need you cannot do anything for you. When you stand as the only symbol of hope for someone who is hurting, who have been wounded, and who have little to no resources.


When I met my husband, I was broken. Emotionally, spiritually, mentally, broken. I had just the right amount of broken and he had just the right amount of lies mixed with charm…for a match made in HELL! I grew up in church, I knew right from wrong but I still made decisions as an adult […]

Being a single mother of a 24 weeker is NOT easy! There are so many sacrifices to be made at all times. Meanwhile still trusting and believing that God will bring us through. Yesterday was particularly difficult. At work my boss continues to talk to me about looking for finances to keep the organization afloat […]

Well today was another page in my “Chronicles of a Horrific Marriage”. I am writing this fresh out of the court room. Today my husband AND his attorney decided they would grace the court room with their appearance. At this point, we have been in divorce proceedings for about 21 months…longer than we actually lived together […]

I don’t know how to be a mommy. There is no book, no ‘how-to guide’, no instructional video…I mean I have excellent examples of what motherhood looks like but there isn’t an absolute answer. Even the best examples are flawed in some way, and I do not mean that in a bad manner…but its the […]

On yesterday I posted a blog saying that I was not afraid of set backs, etc. and as humor would have it, I came home from work yesterday and my daughter was having issues…and off to the ER we went. There was real concern that her VP shunts were malfunctioning due to an enlarged head […]

I relish in each new accomplishment and discovery my daughter makes. I sit and look at her in complete amazement and I fight the urge to share her every move on social media. In the back of my head I think “Mecole, you don’t have to share everything”…so I just look at her, and wait […]

A lot of times people look forward to the New Year because the previous year was treacherous…filled with heart break, disappointments, etc. They also anticipate new beginnings…there is just something magical about a writing a new date, about moving forward, about leaving the past where it is. As I reflect on 2014 and look toward […]

This weekend I went out for some girl time with one of my close friends. Our original plans changed due to some unforeseen circumstances and long story short…we ended up at the bowling alley. I had not been bowling in quite a while, although it is one of my favorite pass times… I grew up […]

This holiday was difficult. I have been separated from my husband for about 21 months and in divorce proceedings for 18 months. Last Christmas, I was still wrapped up in the medical issues of my “born a little too early” daughter. This year however is different, due in HUGE part to my husband now living […]
