Well it's been 5 months since my last post. I kind of feel like a slacker. Posting was easier when I lived in Alabama and was unemployed. Since my last post, I have started working, the summer has gone and Christmas is almost here, the kids are now in their second nine weeks of school (and I think they like it, or at least Sarah does), the girls are in gymnastics and Cam plays basketball. I really miss Upward. :( I can say that the move we made has been a good one so far for the family. The kids have adjusted well, they just miss their friend, but are making new ones. I think when I started my blog it was to help me cope. I am going to continue to write my blog and update more frequently. I'm not sure many people read this, but I believe it's more for me than anyone else.

I am pleased to announce that I am down a whole 30 pounds, and I turned 33 this past weekend. I can remember that when I was young 30 was ancient, and 40, well that was like being dead. Now I can say that you only truly start living in your 30's. You have grown, matured, started a family, and realized what's really important. I am enjoying what God has blessed me with, and I thank him everyday for what he has done for me and my family. I want to be able to help others, and be a light for those who think that there is none.

Well I guess I'm done for now. I will try and post some pictures. That's another area I feel that I have slacked in.

My Daughter and Death

I know that is a strange title, but you will understand after you read the post.

First off let me say that I am a mother of three wonderful children. I know alot of what I write is usually about Sarah, but I do love all of them equally. I just spend the most time with her. I promise I will post about my wonderful Cam'Ron and Aliyah soon.

Now on to Sarah and death. I have begun to think she has a fear of death. About a year ago, she started asking questions like when I get old will I still be her mommy, and I would say yes. She would then proceed to ask when I die will I still be her mommy, and again I would say yes. Then she would go on and ask the same about her daddy. So I thought this was enough. But recently she has begun to say things like, "i don't want to die," or "I don't want you to die mommy, cause you won't be my mommy anymore." this just breaks my heart. I don't want her to be worried about death; and I know that this is a phase that some kids go through, but I don't want her worrying herself into a tizzy. Well that's all I have today. If you have any ideas on what to say or do, please feel free to comment.

Jacksonville so far

Well, I know it's been awhile since my last post; but we have been trying to adjust to our new life in a new city (and I do mean City).

To start, I finally got the older two kids in school and they are adjusting well. The last day for them is June 11. Don't feel sad for them, they have had 3 holidays since we have been here. Sarah on the other hand is a little harder; I have not found a school that I feel is suitable for her. So we have been trying different ones out. Not very cost effcient, but it has to be done.

Last weekend was my sweet baby Aliyah's 8th birthday. My mom, sister's, cousin, neice,nephews, and step-dad came over. We had a "pool party" on Saturday and had a beach party on Sunday. We had a really GOOD TIME! It was very hot. Guess we need to get use to florida heat. Now don't think we are here just having a blast, we have had a few trials; but throug the grace of GOD we have made it through. HE has shown us that are still good people in the world, not only at home. I feel so BLESSED and LOVED BY MY Father.

This weekend we decided to come home to see the family. So we are in Dothan. I want those who read this blog to know how much we really miss all of you. I hope to see you soon. Please keep us in your prayers.

In Christian Love,

Lisha and the family

Just In Case You Didn't Know

Well for all of you who read my tiny blog, my family has moved to Jacksonville, Florida. It was a decision that we felt was best for our family. I already miss my family (although they don't give you time to miss them), as well as my wonderful church family. For those of you I didn't tell I am sorry, it just made it too real to say it out loud. On a brighter note we are enjoying ourselves so far. I promise to keep everyone updated on how we are doing.

Love you and miss you!

Cabin Fever

Well yesterday I realized that I had become a victim of cabin fever. Don't get me wrong I am getting used to the fact that I have somehow become a housewife, and it is not all that bad, I just don't have much to do. All the kids are in school, and you can only clean so much (in my case I could probably do more), and I just get really BORED. Yesterday, I almost went crazy. I finally decided to go to the Dollar General and CVS to pick up some things. When I returned home, I took the girl and we rode around until it was time to go to church. I have decided if I don't get a job, I need some friends to play with. Because sitting in the house can drive you MAD.

Easter 2010

I would have to say that Easter 2010 is at the top of my list for "Best Easter Ever!"

First off, we had a family bbq at my grandma's on Saturday. One of my aunts was down from New Jersey. Its always good to see family that you haven't seen in awhile. There were about 11 little kids (all cousins and noone over the age of 12), plus the teenagers, and the what I like to call the used to be's. We used to be the children, but we are the ones with the children. Then you had the "older" adults and the senior citizens. We were all in one house having a good time. It got a little noisy at times, but it was fun. Some of the "used to be's" made easter baskets for the little ones and helped them dye eggs. Then the teenagers hid the eggs for the Easter egg hunt. Then there was the YUMMY food! It was great!

But I have to say the highlight of this Easter was the church service today. The choir performed "East to West." Which I thought was wonderful! But I am over-joyed with the fact that my 2 oldest children decided to dedicated their lives to Jesus! That was AWESOME! I am so proud of them! I just hope that I can continue to be a light for them and continue to lead on the right path. I also hope that I am able to be a light to others and help them to come to know Jesus. I know that I could not have made this journey with out the special people that God put in my life at just the right time. I just want to thank Brother Chuck and Jame' for being an excellent influence in the lives of all my children. You will never know how thankful I am. And to all those who I did not name, but have been there for my children and help to guide them and help them learn about Jesus, I am truly thankful.

This has been the Best Easter ever!


Thursday, April 1, 2010


Well today I figured something out. I am BIG! And I know what I am about to say is going to shock some people. My sweet husband, just informed me of this also. Calm down, I give him permission to do this, I actually encourage it. Just so I know where I am. Well back to what I was saying. I have decided I am going to get back on the wagon that I feel off of about 1.5 years ago. The weight loss wagon. I had actually lost about 50 lbs. I have now gained it and some back. Luckily I don't have any health issues. BP is good, no pre-diabetes, ect. I just need to do this for me so I can feel better about myself, fit into some of my clothes, and be a good example for the children. So I have rededicated my self to this mission.

Wish me luck!
