Ready.Set.Go.

Well, here I am. In my own blog. Finally, the World as my audience. I always knew I was destined for Greatness. Too much? Okay, so maybe I don't have the entire world for an audience, but I've got your attention for at least the next 10 minutes so that'll do....for now.

I figured for our first encounter I should introduce myself. Not sure who's reading this, and I don't want to come off as rude. (really I don't care if I do this is my blog)
My name is Keesha and I'm thirty-something. I'm a recovering Pastors Kid so technically I should know all the answers to faith and spirituality. But I don't. I'm a naked person and writer. (no, not literally you perv) Naked?? Yep, I am one of the most authentic, honest, raw, soft hearted, bare it all souls you will ever meet. Whether you know me in person or get to know me through my writings, you will touch my soul. But not without permission....I will bare it all and show it to you, because I want to. I have to. I don't know how to live any other way. I am both tough and tender hearted. You will collide with both and I guarantee you'll love it.

I grew up in a Christian home, better yet, the Pastors Family. I'm the youngest of 3. I was adopted when I was 19 days old. No, I don't know my birth parents. Maybe someday.
I don't think I'm the black sheep of my family. (half black for sure) Well, maybe I am. I'm not entirely sure anymore. I used to be the favorite. (uh, my name actually means "favorite" in case you doubt me)  What I am entirely sure of is that I am the child who has brought the biggest disappointment and probably the most embarrassment. Those juicy details will be revealed soon enough. Don't be mistaken though, I love my family deeply and I'm content with our dysfunction.

I love music, reading, writing, texting, laughing, and sports in general with an emphasis on NCAA Men's Basketball. ROCK CHALK!!! I'm learning to love cooking even though I'm terrible at it. I like to swear. A lot. Not because I'm angry, but because swearing makes me laugh. What About Bob? The King's Speech? YES, LOVE!!

My kids are AMAZING and I crazy love them. I'm totally 7 months pregnant and I love the new kid just as much as the other 2.
I have an extremely small bubble of friends, and that's how I like it. I have this peculiar love/hate thing with people.
I do in fact call myself a Christian, although I'm sure some people wish I wouldn't. Sometimes I'm embarrassed with that title, and most days I don't even understand the title, but none the less I am a follower of Jesus. I am NOT a deep thinking theologian nor do I care to be. So if that's what your expecting from this PK, you will be sorely disappointed.

So there you have it. That's me. This blog is a journey of my life. Where I've been, where I'm at now, and where I'm going. I'll share my thoughts on faith and life in general. I have one chance at this life, and I want to do it well. Everyone has a story. This one just happens to be mine. You'll see my joys and sorrows, successes and failures, my hurts and how I overcame them and probably the craziness of my daily life. My hope is that maybe through my life you can find inspiration and hope in yours.
Ready. Set. Go.

DISCLOSURE: My views are explicitly my own and do not reflect the views of anyone else. (siblings, parents, friends, etc) They are subject to change and most undoubtedly will. If you have already been offended by something I've written, do NOT read on. Don't do that to yourself or to me. I sure as hell won't let ya anyways.

    1. Hey Vanessa. There is a box on the right side that says subscribe...put your email in that and it will set you up to follow. It sends you an email every time I post. Ya know, I'm not sure about how to sign your name other than just typing it. That's what some other people have done.
      Thanks for reading and commenting!

  9. A few rebuttals from your brother.

    1. "Road to Redemption"?
    Puhleeeeze...you ain't TI...

    2. "Black Sheep of the family"
    Hardly. I don't think any of us can claim that until we've knocked over a convenience store and did a stretch behind bars. Until you do that I think you should just call yourself "unique".

    3. "I used to be the favorite."
    We all know Kendra is the favorite.

    4. "I like to swear."
    This is not you. Only these people LIKE to swear.

    5. "What I am entirely sure of is that I am the child who has brought the biggest disappointment and probably the most embarrassment."
    Okay, in all seriousness, do you think Mo, Jaz or baby-to-be will EVER do anything that would make you say this about them? That they are a disappointment or an embarrassment to you? I didn't think so.
    The problem I have with this statement is that by saying this, you are taking away the right of the person(s) you're referring to to have their own opinions and feelings on the subject. If someone thinks you're a disappointment/embarrassment, then let THEM have the right to say that..you don't have the right to take that away from them. BUT…for the record….I'm embarrassed by you….but if you would take a shower that would fix it.

    All in all, good stuff! it's fun that you're blogging!
