Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Yay! My first award..The Very Inspiring Blogger Award.img_2255

I got nominated by the wonderful couple: Emily and Chris who host A Couple Talks blog. They have this great blog that is written from both a male and female perspective that gives you insight into dating, relationships and everything in between. Go check it out and I thank you both!

This is my first blogger award and the fact that total strangers think that I’m inspirational has me stoked. Woo hoo! Go me! Go me!


So, here are my thank you’s:

I would like to thank Sweet baby Jesus for being the motivating force in my life. Many of you know that I love me some Jesus and I know where my help comes from. I am a broken Christian marching in His army. Amen!

I would like to thank my son for providing hours of amusement to me that allows me to write about his antics. I would like to thank my friends for telling me to write-through the pain of my marriage crumbling and journal my experiences. Apparently that makes for great reading. I would like to thank POF, Tinder, Match and Black People Meet for allowing me to be a part of your dating site and realize that…men are crazy no matter what site you’re on.


Are you inspired yet? Seriously, I’m honored and I can’t believe that my little blog has such awesome readers. I hope that I can continue to write material that people find inspiring and just plain good.

So, one thing about winning this award, I have to do some official things.

Seven Hidden Facts About Me:

  1. I recently reconnected with my dad after a 30 year hiatus. I found out that I may have 9 other siblings. Yep, my papa was a rolling stone.
  2. I have an accent. You will never hear it unless you’re around me when I’m home in Tennessee. I work hard to perfect my diction so you’ll never catch me slipping. LOL!
  3. I love selfies. Since my marriage ended, I learned to love my curves and find my happier and healthier self. Due to that I’ve become obsessed with taking photos of myself. Nope, I don’t have a selfie stick…yet.
  4. I hate when people talk about bugs, lice, fleas, etc. I start itching and scratching thinking I have something.
  5. I once planned to go to Vanderbilt law school and enter politics so I could become governor of my home state in Tennessee.
  6. My favorite book of the bible is Romans. It is the book that speaks to me the most in terms of my walk and faith and God’s ever-present love for me.
  7. Spanish was my first language. We lived in Spain when I was learning to talk and my babysitter spoke only Spanish. Therefore, I spoke Spanish at home.



  1. Tikeetha it is so wonderful to read your blog and see the beautiful women you’ve become. It’s hard for me to believe so much time has passed since you first enter my life. I had no doubt that you would be someone important and special. Thanks for sharing your wonderful gift with the world although it sometimes is coming from a place of pain. This let’s other know that they are not in this alone. That’s what the enemy tries to do isolate us and make us think we have not our God or friends that will support or understand us in the times of darkness. He definitely will hide you under his wings when you are hurting until you can come out and stand. Thanks once again for sharing. Nia J. Williams


    1. Aww! Thank you Nia! Yes, I know. It was my friends who encouraged me to write through the pain. It was writing that allowed me to cope. I felt so alone but when I wrote and shared my stories I found a whole community of people that had suffered like me. We were united and we were healing! Thanks for the support and please subscribe to the blog!


  2. Thanks for nominating me! I really appreciate it.
    It makes me smile to know others are inspired by my writing, which I write from my heart, and enjoy reading about my journey in life 🙂
