Hey Ya’ll

Okay, so I got quite a few topic suggestions for the month of May. You really came through for me and the topics are very good as well as fun. If you could remember – about a week or two ago, I was asking for a little boost this month with getting some topics because my brain after last week was heading into FREEZEVILLE and I was somewhat scared about it! (Like totally, I really was )

EnSpired: Hold Up Bridesmaids, This Bouquet is Not For You!!

If you’re a single or I guess I should say, If you’re a single looking to be married – then getting invited to a wedding is a BIG deal for you. I mean who knows, your soul mate just may be there – or at least that’s the hope, right?

Well, it’s a no brainer that when the bride gets ready to throw that beautiful bouquet she’s been holding on to for dear life all through the ceremony – YOU’RE THE FIRST IN LINE! with seemingly about 10 or more other women hoping that they too, will get their chance to catch it. The bouquet is like a bridal torch, once she throws it – it’s a strong belief that whomever catches it, will surely be the next person to get hitched!

And while the dream is that maybe that time will be very soon – for one beautiful young bridesmaid; that wish came sooner than she could have imagined.

Bride Amy, pulled the ultimate trick on her bridesmaids when she got ready to toss the “long awaited” bouquet – while the ladies gathered together, each, anxiously awaiting to catch the beautiful flowers and get their dreams into motion….

The bride, whom did a couple of fake tosses as the girls counted up to three – before they could get to four, she turned around and pulled a fast one on them…

No No No

she must’ve said to herself – as she walked up and gave the bouquet to her brother’s girlfriend – you’ll have to watch the clip below to see what happened next!

Sorry, couldn’t get the actual video to post here – but you can still see it below: ðŸ‘‡ðŸ‘‡

Honor Thy Mother & Father. A Commandment for Everyone…

There are several scriptures in the Bible that talks about children obeying their parents, adults included; While it’s a Blessing if we follow this simple, yet profound commandment, one might ask: Continue reading “Honor Thy Mother & Father. A Commandment for Everyone…”

EnSpired: MOM, To The Rescue!

When Rhonda Whitney attended the talent show at her daughter’s school, I’m sure her hopes and intentions were to film her daughter performing and while she probably did – the next talent to come to the stage; made her unexpected video, go VIRAL!

That viral sensation was Makayla Ferrell, whom was also in the talent show; but, it’s not what Makayla song that went viral, but the person that came on stage to help her belt out the lyrics to Andra Day‘s “Rise Up” that got tears to flowing and a standing ovation.

When Makayla’s voice began to fade as she began to stumble over the song lyrics, there came a familiar voice from the crowd to help Makayla out; it was the voice of her mom, Shaye Washington! but Washington didn’t just stop there, seeing her daughter in distress; she immediately rose up and continued to sing as she made her way from the audience to the stage, helping her finish the song.

Talent shows are scary and mind-boggling as it is and it takes tremendous courage to get up in front of an audience and endure the stares from teachers, parents and your peers, all of whom are now focused on you and your every word. Shaye Washington sensed her daughter was going into a panic and therefore; put on her mom cape and sprung into action.

“I saw her struggling and getting ready to get frustrated so I just immediately stepped in. From where I was standing it looked like my child was asking for help, but just not verbally” – Shaye Washington

The heroic move of the mom, brought tears to Rhonda Whitney’s eyes – she was so moved by Washington’s actions, she went home and posted the video to her FB page.

Washington, whom didn’t see the post until the following day – Awoke to a surprise on her own FB page.

Since Rhonda’s posting – the video has not only went viral but has received over 100k shares and has been liked, loved and wowed over 200,000 times!! You can view the video below but I must warn you – you’re gonna want to grab the tissues.

In Lieu of mothers day week/weekend, may we all go and embrace the women that were our first role models – Thanks Shaye for being one of those amazing SHE-RO’S!

Q&A: Okay, So How “MAY” I Help You…

OMGosh!!! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, where has the TIME GONE! First there was January, then there was MAY! I can’t say I even remember too much about the months in between. Anywho, I hope you’re having a great day and hopefully the weather is sunny and warm where you are because it’s definitely been a LONGGGGGGGGG Winter, so long until it overlapped into Spring!

While I feel as though Spring is just beginning, usually the spring season brings on new ideas, it’s a time in which we can clean up the cobwebs of winter and make everything airy and decluttered and while I still have that on my to-do list to complete in my own house – I have to say, that I’m suffering from a big brain cobweb. Yep! the ideas of what to post about for this month, seemed to skip past me like the mailman does when I’m looking for a check, instead of a nagging bill.

You know?, I’ve been blogging for 3yrs now and I have to say – when I first started, I had no idea as to what I was going to talk about, it was like this blank canvas was in front of me and I had to find some way of coloring it. I was so nervous, “What have I just done?” I asked myself, right after I got the message “Your Blog JustsumInspiration is up and ready! “Oh No!!….what seemed like a good idea, now had my mouth filled with cotton balls. But, Thank God – topics, situations and life events all flooded my mind within that first month and has never stopped until NOW. Sooo, you might be wondering…Okay, Ro – so what are getting at……

            I NEED TOPICSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

Do you have any??? – I know Mother’s Day week is next week and I believe I have about two rabbits in my hat that I can pull off a couple of tricks with, but after that – I DON’T KNOW, YIKESSSS!

So, that’s where you come in at – I know for the past three years, I’ve been doing a lot of talking and kind of testing the waters with life experiences and certain topics and that’s been great, but now I have to ask you – Is there a Particular topic you would like for me to talk about? (Anything but Politics, because I’m just not that clever or knowledgeable on the subject) however; everything else is up for grabs.

I want to know what you would like to see featured on the Blog – Do you have a burning question or are you puzzled about something and need some advice? Is there a subject matter you hadn’t seen me talk about and you want me to talk about it? Just let me know!!….I’m here to serve you. It can be topics about me, about you, life, God or whatever. I’m not claiming to know EVERYTHING in the world, but I’ve been through quite a bit of things and can maybe offer some insight. Would you like more short stories?, I had a blogger (Driftyness) to state that she liked the short story posts and would like to see more of those and because of that request, I decided at the end of each month – I would post an original short story that was written by me!

So, this month – the ball is in your court. Let me me know what you’d like to talk about and I’ll see what I can “cook up” in this brain of mine.

State your topic of interest in the comments! I’ll be patiently waiting….

Waiting
