Happy 9th Birthday Micah!

My son is super special to me.

It is Micah’s 9th Birthday and I wanted to take this time to share this day with those who normally don’t see Micah at all during the year.  There are so many people to our non traditional family of course that include my Godsisters, Kel and Keesh, My Godparents, his TT Terris and Uncle Andre that he loves dearly. He also misses those he doesn’t see as often.

I cannot believe this little guy is 9! He is my reason for living. I cannot wait until my story gets to him and you are able to see how my mentality shifts because he is a part of my life. He is truly his own person and of course as you can tell from his answers, children see and hear everything and it makes me want to be a better person everyday even now!

See you later in the week!

Be Strong Be You, #loveMicah

 

Hiatus Over

Yes, I have been gone a long time. I am back. I am back to share more of my story and not stop when it gets too hard. I am back to not make excuses for the sake of others. Thank you to everyone who supported me through my absence. I appreciate it. Welcome all! Watch my videos from the beginning and get caught up at https://bestrongbeyoublog.wordpress.com/.

When Suicide Became An Option

First I would like to give a shout out to Ms. Harris at Paris High School, in Paris, Missouri for coming through with my feature picture that I accidentally erased from my phone.

Second, September 2016 was also Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.  Please reach out to those you love and always be kind.  People fight demons everyday.  Pray for them and if you do nothing else, at least smile.

Be Strong, Be You

An Open Letter From Me, An Alopecian
