50 Shades of Gay: My Beloved Son, Change Your Ways… Homosexuality is a Sin… So is Fornication, My Beloved Daughter!

50 Shades of Gay:
My Beloved Son, Change Your Ways… Homosexuality is a Sin… So is Fornication, My Beloved Daughter!

As I sit here reflecting on my life… I oftentimes do that after reading my Quran… I often ponder about the spiritual fate of my children… who I affectionately call the FAB Five… I can vividly remember a time that my life was in turmoil because of one of sons' life changing decisions.

The events surrounding this emotional... mental... physical and spiritual turmoil began my path to accepting his stance... all of the different scenarios, allowed me to open my mind... my heart... and above all... made me take my judgemental spotlight off of him... and turn it around and shine it upon myself. Let's begin...

A Day in the Life of ejnosillA
Another Mother's Day Spent Missing My Mommy!!!

Mother’s Day is a time of year that we Queens celebrate our mothers and it gives us a wonderful opportunity to spend the day giving her our undivided attention. It’s a day were we… mothers… can lay back and relax and let our children take care of us for once… well at least in theory… It’s the one day of the year that you reflect and show that special Queen in your life how special she is and how much we appreciate her sacrifices while raising our hard-heads… it’s a time of remembering... laughing and celebrating your Queen! Well... Ladies... Mother’s Day for me is a bittersweet time of the year…

Ladies… Did You Forgot About Your 2017 Graduate… Don’t Fret… You're Not Alone!
See... it's not like me to drop the ball... I am usually the go to person within my family... and people are usually counting on me to fix it... and figure out whatever is going on at that time. In the meantime... If you are a lot like me… I am always on the go… with working, schooling, blogging and of course… mothering.

Ladies… Don’t be Ashamed of Your Truths… They’re A Part of You

"As-Salaam-Alaikum," "Peace be unto you"

Motivational Mondays:

Ladies… Don’t be Ashamed of Your Truths… They’re A Part of You

As women, we are taught to be ashamed of a lot of things… ashamed of our weight… or our independence or our sexuality… in my case… having five children out of wedlock. Regardless of your personal situation… with age comes life experiences and with life experiences comes wisdom… you see where I am going with this… and with wisdom comes the acceptance of our truths.

Through your truths… or your life experiences… the ups and downs… the highs and lows… or however YOU want… or need… to classify them… these experiences are what makes you the beautiful woman that you are.

"As-Salaam-Alaikum," "Peace be unto you"

Amazon's Top Picks for Mother’s Day… For the Mom Who Just Wants to Survive Mother’s Day… 
Have a Heart and Please Rescue Me!?!


Oh… Mother’s Day… normally, it’s a time of year that all mothers are celebrated and rewarded for surviving the pains of childbirth… and raising… or in my case… dealing with… and more importantly… surviving the FAB Five’s holiday shenanigans!

Let me tell you… being a single mom, raising these 5 children of mines… there have been some trying times… and it’s been by the grace of GOD… that I have survived another year… For what?



Is this some type of sick joke?!? Who the heck made up this day?!? 

I betcha it had to be some man who thought it would be cute to honor his mom and she probably bragged about it to her neighbor who got on the phone and told her Sista circle… and...

We all know... that some women just have to be... keeping up with those dang Joneses and them... and... 

Now I’m sitting here trying to figure out how to fake my own death… and dreading the fact that on Sunday, May 14, 2017… mark the date Ladies…  I unfortunately...  once again… must pull out my ejnosillA's Mother’s Day Survival Kit!!!

Now… I know you are saying… what can be so bad about ejnosillA's Mother’s Days?!? Well… Sista Girl… let me tell you!

First of all, the oldest one… my beloved daughter… is going to get the shenanigans started! 

She’s going to come up with the bright idea of… and somehow convinces the other four that... “Let’s cook mom breakfast in bed...” is a great ideal!

While, I'm in my room trying to figure out my Mother's Day Escape Plan because I know that I told her... and now... them... individually... collectively... that... “All I want is a day of peace and quiet.” 

The same thing I tell them every year… for every holiday… because I know my health is in jeopardy!

See, what I mean is… although my daughter is brilliant, stylish and has grown into such a beautiful young lady… the kind that any mother would be proud of… she has one important flaw… SHE CAN’T COOK!

I don't care how many times I have showed her how to cook... basic things... she just can't cook!




I PROMISE YOU… I CAN’T TAKE ANOTHER YEAR OF THIS… undercooked, burnt or scorched… eggs, burnt and hard turkey bacon… crunchy pancakes… the house filled with smoke…oh my goodness... the aroma... just thinking about it... got my asthma trying to flare up... 

Just imagine for a minute... me pretending I'm sleep... wishing that I was dead...  and having to pretend that I really like the food… hecks… I should have won an Oscar by now… I can't afford to go to the E.R. to get my stomach pumped this year... please somebody... anybody... STOP LAUGHING... and Help Me?!?

What happened to the "GOOD OLE DAYS..." when she... and now them... would just bring mommy a card they made at school… or an ashtray… that started off as a coffee mug… but that’s not the point… I miss those days… 

Those safer days… those days that didn’t require me to be spending my whole Mother’s Day in the bathroom crying… GOD… WHY ME… ALL I WANTED WAS A PEACEFUL DAY OFF… Oh my… how time flies… AND NOW THIS DREADFUL HOLIDAY IS CLOSING IN ON ME!!!

So… in order for me to save my life… and the lives of other mothers who have found themselves in this life-threatening predicament… and having to pull out your Mother’s Day Survival Kit… 

I have taken it upon myself to make a list of the top 7 Amazon items that I would prefer to receive for Mother’s Day... Let’s begin

The 18” Sterling Silver, 14k rose gold diamond accent triple heart pendant necklace features three intertwined hearts. I can see myself sporting this triple heart pendant necklace around town. 



This a great gift for a mother who is trying to dodge the emergency room on Mother’s Day… a mom like me!

Kindle E-reader 

The Kindle E-reader is available in my choice of black or white. With its 6" new, thinner and lighter design is equipped with a glare-free touchscreen display. 

Can you imagine it… no screen glare… even in bright sunlight that will read just like real paper… I can becasuse that’s just what I need with these bad eyes of mines!


Kindle E-reader’s single battery charge will last for weeks and not hours… which is a plus for me because I always seem to be running all over the house… searching for my missing charger… that has mysteriously walked down the hall and plugged itself in the outlet in the twins room.


The Kindle E-reader will allow me to hold thousands of books… that means I can read…  uninterrupted with no alerts or notifications… and if my kids really want to show out for Mother’s Day… they can get me a Amazon Prime membership… so I can read over a thousand titles for free with unlimited access!

The Kindle E-reader is affordable... is available in black or white colors and would be a wonderful Mother’s Day gift… click the link for more details about the Kindle E-reader.

Handbag and Purse Light by Noor

Noor’s Handbag and Purse Light would be a needed accessory to go with my purse because I am always losing something in there. Ladies if you’re like me… I have everything in my purse… minus the kitchen sink!

You need a band aid… I got it… or you need a Kleenex… yep… I got it… you need a safety pin... got that too… but… the only problem is… it’s always at the bottom of my purse and I need some light to find what I am looking for down that big dark hole. 
 
Noor’s Handbag and Purse Light is equipped with sensors that are activated by the movement of your hands… so there aren’t any buttons or switches to push.

No more pricking my fingers in the dark or having to remove every single item out of my purse to see what I am looking for… I clip the illuminator inside my bag… one motion of my hand in my purse and… PRESTO… 

I have light that stays on for 10 seconds before automatically turning off… and… the best part… and my selling point to the FAB Five… 


It’s Affordable Too! Click the link for more details about the Noor’s Handbag and Purse Light.

Echo Dot (2nd generation)

The Echo Dot (2nd generation) has limitless features that is equipped with 7 far-field microphones. 

Another feature of the Echo Dot (2nd generation) is it is equipped with voice-control to play music from your favorite online music stations – Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and much more.


Amazon brags that this new-age, voice-controlled and hands-free device can hear me from a far range even if I have the latest jams playing… I wonder if I can get an Echo Dot (2nd generation) attached to each one of my five children… hecks... They seem to not hear me when there’s nothing playing in the house and we are standing in the same room! 


If I need my lights turned on/off… or the heater/air conditioner turned up/down… or need the doors locked… well the Echo Dot (2nd generation)... has me covered and it’s compatible with  connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, ecobee, and many, many more!


Mommy’s dutiful, little assistant has a built-in-speaker and has the capability to work in all areas of the home… meaning I can voice-control my home… I can call out to the Echo Dot (2nd generation) and my wish is its command!

With me being a bargain shopper and I am always looking for a deal, I really do like the Echo Dot (2nd generation).... and... the price is just right!

If the Echo Dot (2nd generation) is as good as I think it is... the FAB Five better watch out... they might just get replaced... I will take five please... one for each kid... Just Saying! I

Echo Dot (2nd generation) is available in black or white… click the link to check out more details about the Echo Dot (2nd generation).


Fire Tablet with Alexa

Fire Tablet with Alexa has a 7" display equipped with Alexa cloud-based voice service… so all I have to do is press a button and ask… and once again… it shall be done.

The Fire Tablet with Alexa comes in an array of stylish colors which promises me that this cute, swanky device will allow me to view all of my favorite movies and TV shows… and I can play games too!

The Fire Tablet with Alexa is equipped with 8 or 16 GB… depending on my preference and the amount of money the children are willing to spend… and...

Amazon Happy Mother's Day Gift Card in a Greeting Card


The Amazon Happy Mother's Day gift card in a greeting card is a wonderful way to say I love you to a mother who doesn't have the stomach to eat one more burnt Mother's Day breakfast, brunch or dinner!


 

The Amazon Happy Mother's Day gift card allows the mom... that's me... the freedom to purchase whatever my heart desires from the comfort of my own home... or a hospital bed...

It guarantees that I get the gift that I love and will appreciate... and they will be so busy arguing about how much money to put on there... that they won't have time to cook me any surprise meals in bed... Just Saying!

ejnosillA's Final Thoughts

In closing... these truly are wonderful gifts that any mother would be so thrilled to get... and I am praying so hard that one of these will be given to me on Mother's Day... 


So... I am begging you... if anyone of you knows one of the FAB Five... please share this with them... but... 


If I know my daughter with her persuasive skills... meaning... she is going to bully the other four into doing what she wants to do... only because she is the oldest... I probably will be spending my Mother's Day in the bathroom... as usual... Just Saying!!


Well... I guess... I better get my bags packed and ready... and run to the nearest Wal-Mart to stock up on some much needed supplies for my Mother's Day Survival Kit... let me see... I guess better stock up on a variety of antacids, laxatives... or Pepto Bismol... I never know what their meals will do to my insides... okay... let me think... oh yeah... Ginger Ale and crackers... and before I go...


If there is anybody out there who has a heart... would you please rescue me!!! As usual...


Stay Blessed Queens!




May ALLAH Bless ALL of the Beautiful Mothers of the World!
