Married at 18 and 3 babies by 22. Life had been a whirlwind of diapers, cooking, cleaning, school, activities and sports. My priority was and always has been my boys. I committed most of my adult life to date taking care of them. I was a stay at home mom 90% of that time. I loved every moment even though being a young family of 5 with one income wasn’t always easy. As years went by I never missed an experience with my boys. We moved to Florida and I started working full time as all the boys went to public school.
With 3 busy boys in school , sports, and other activities working full time had been a challenge. I missed practices games, reading nights, picking my boys up from school, and even cooking and eating dinner as a family. I started missing so much so we could be a 2 income family and provide even more for the boys that needed more and more as they got older.
After the divorce it got 10 times harder especially with the job I had. Now as I work my own business and have the support of Jermaine I get to put all that hard work into my business and be at all the special moments for the kids.This is a big year or everyone and I don’t want to miss anything. Kevin is in his senior year and will have a ton of events to attend, Cameron is at a new school with a new football team with daily practices and weekly games. Ashton is starting high school and has a new principal along with working toward his Eagle rank at scouts, and Jermaine, working 12 hour days 5 days a week and training kids whenever he gets the opportunity.
These 4 men in my life are my “why”. They are the reason I work so hard for whats best for my family. I got sick of missing moments with my kids, I was tired of being out of the loop in my children’s life. I had to make a move but I was scared. Luckily the universe made it for me. I am putting my all into my “why” and I am starting to see it paying off. I got my first pay check working my business and as long as I keep focused on what is important I am sure there will be more to come.
