So for the last 3 weeks I have been unemployed. However, I applied to work to work at Flagstar. Took the test, did both the credit/background check, only to wait another 3 weeks with no news. Meanwhile, my bills are getting behind, plus my rent was due. I was desperate. Luckily, my mom and grandma helped with my bills. What a blessing they both are to me. I don't where I would be without them. As I was getting ready for the gym, I got a phone call from the Flagstar rep stating that they would like for me to start on Feb 6th. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. God is truly awesome! I want to thank all of my Spark Family for their silent prayers. U guys/gals are the best!

Dear Spark Family,
It has been awhile, since I was last active on SparkPeople. So much has happened in my life over the past year and a half. My other mother (mom of my ex-bestfriend) recently passed away last year (Oct 18) from ovarian cancer. I am still not coping with the her passing, she was an awesome God fearing woman, who taught me a lot. I cannot thank her enough for teaching me how to deal with negative situations and turning them into positive ones. She was the glue that held everything together, even when her daughter and I would fight, she would call us into the room together to try and patch things up and have us talk it out, then hug one another. Unfortunately, that teaching did not work this time, between her daughter and I. As a woman of God, I could no longer deal with the negativity that her daughter emitted. She was not a positive person and it took me 8 long years to figure this out. She was not the person that I thought she was, we had a one-sided friendship. It was always what she wanted...never what I wanted. Can you believe that she waited 2 whole weeks to let me know that her mom had passed. Wow, what kind of bestfriend does that, especially when you helped take care of her mother during her illness...long nights at the hospital, cleaning her, etc etc. Ever since her mother's funeral, last year....we have not spoken. In all honesty, I am actually not upset by that either, I made a promise to myself before God, to only surround myself with POSITIVE people and to remove all negative people and things. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of her mother. I miss her everyday, I just hope that she isn't mad at me for not trying to mend what has been broken for some time now. . Mama Valda, I miss and love you so very much, I know that God is taking good care of you. Until we meet again...Love your other daughter, Iris

Good Day Spark Family...To say the least..it has been awhile since my last entry. Wow...in the meantime, last week happened to be one of the worst weeks of my life. I got bad news on top of more bad news. . For startes, my mother and her 2nd youngest sister got into a physical altercation...some blood was shed, lives were shattered, family was devistated over the whole ordeal and not to mention..charges were filed against my aunt. It was just a mess. Where does this leave me,well right smack dab in the middle..try getting a phone call from work with information stating that your mother and your aunt are down at the local police station. Don't get me wrong, I love them both..but they put me in an awkward situation. Now they both HATE each other right now . I am trying to be the peacemaker and all but it's not working...this has been going on since Wed of last week. I have no energy left and I am just hoping that God can fix this real soon, because I love them both.
On another note: My 5 year old twin cousin Breonna was rushed to the Children's Hospital here in Detroit..because she was throwing up repeatedly and couldn't hold anything down and she may have to have stomach surgery. I hope and pray all goes well...but I know that God will take care of her..just like he will my mother and aunt.
Then to add insult to injury my so-called job (thank God I have one) is makine me take a 2-hr writing assessment to see how well I can write and respond to various email topics here in the department..Umm it's a little to late for that..seeing that I have been here for almost 4 yrs. Our team assistant keeps re-assuring us all (total of 7) that we have nothing to worry about...WTF ever...how do I know that if my writing isn't up to their standards that my job won't be affected. . I am just go put my trust and faith in God..I know he will see me THROUGH ALL of this stuff.

Good Morning all, I am writing this blog today because I need all of my Spark family to send there prayers out for my Sweet Pea Hannah. She has to have laser surgery to remove all of her skin tags (Skin tags are a type of growth or tumor, albeit a completely benign and harmless one. Tags are not cancerous (malignant) and not found to have potential to become cancerous if left untreated) as you can see Hannah is still a baby, which scares me even more at the thought of her having to be put under anesthesia at such a young age (9 mos). You see when Hannah when was first born, she was born with skin tags on her back, ear and some on her stomach and they are continuing to form/grow...the doctors told my aunt (her mother) that they were just moles..but a dermatologists diagnosed them as skin tags. Hannah has to go to the doctor today to see when she will actually have to have the surgery done..we were trying to wait until she turned a year in January...unfortunately, the dermatologist decided against waiting. I know that this is not life threatening, my stomach gets all tied up in knots at the thought of my Sweet Pea being put to sleep, so Please keep your prayer out for me, I am crying right now all while writing this blog. I know GOD will keep her under close watch and not let anything happen to her, she and my Breonna mean the world to me! Thank you all so much!
