I would like to start off by thanking God for bringing me to this moment in time. It is so important for me to acknowledge and honor my God. Lord, knows that he has brought me through a multitude of obstacles and still allows me to be in his presence. I thank you and praise your name.
When I began to promote the re-launch of my blog I was a tad bit nervous, wondering why is God giving me this vision to start writing again? I have not written in 3 years, will people even care???!!! However, the thing that I soon came to realize is that my blog is not for me...it is for my peers and those that may be experiencing, have experienced or will experience the same things as I. I would like to thank each of you in advance for your continued love and support. I am letting God guide my life ... be prepared to follow the journey as I experience the path that has been written for me, so long ago.
Since my last post in 2009, I have done the following (in this order): Moved from Washington DC to St. Louis, MO. Went from Job to Job as trying to keep a balance between being a single mother, provide for my son and myself, and run a non-profit long distance....*phew. Fallen in love with the "surprise" love of my life (never saw that one coming, but I am glad God had it planned all along).
Expanded Jewels, Inc., from Washington DC to St. Louis, MO & Chicago, IL (for those of you who don't know we are a National Organization now - in less than 5 years). Married the love of my life. Conceived my very own "Baby Jewel"!!!
Began working with my mother as her Marketing & Branding Director of Florissant Pediatrics (the BEST JOB I have ever had ... only because the time spent with my mom is priceless and no dollar amount will ever be a bigger value than being next to my Mama Doc everyday all day).
Became a Full Time caregiver to my grandfather (I wouldn't trade it for the world...I love that man)!!Reached another MILESTONE with Jewels, Inc. It has been 5 years since we were founded, January 11, 2007 is our birthday!!!Gave birth to the real life, one and only Baby Jewel, Brielle Marcell Williams (5lb, 15 oz), on January 12, 2012....yes if you are trying to do the math that is exactly 5 years and one day after the birthday of Jewels, Inc. ....Can you see why my God is Good?!
In all, long story short...I haven't been up to much in the past three years other than becoming a wife, expanding my non-profit, becoming a mother for the second time, working and taking care of my family!!! LOL.God is really working on me. I pray for patience (because I really am limited with that skill set). I know that I am not perfect, but I pray everyday that God makes me HIS Ideal Woman. He has planned so much for my future and I can not wait to share these visions as they come to pass with you all. I pray that I can inspire anyone to do what it is they are supposed to do...not what others want you to do, nor what you may WANT to do; but do what God has called YOU to do. Nobody else can act on your blessings because they were designed ONLY for you. So be who you are, stay true to yourself and follow Gods plan for your life!
