To My Daughters’ Ex-Boyfriend

By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/6/13 Dear Lost One: There is a reason you are no longer in my daughters' life.

Honesty By: Mia L.

For My Virtuous Daughters

By:  Mia L. Hazlett 1/5/13 As I line up our year of abundance, I must stay focused on the non-material.  There is nothing more important to me than raising you both to be and become God-fearing virtuous women.  We have become a remarkably resilient and close family over the past three years.  Within these past… Continue reading For My Virtuous Daughters

Living by Faith

By: Mia L. Hazlett 1/3/13 I came into 2013 by myself. I sat in my recliner with the television on completely, captivated by my new James Patterson book. As the midnight hour approached, I wondered what 2013 would bring for me. And as I sat alone, I began to feel lonely. My daughters were at… Continue reading Living by Faith

Your Son is NOT Your Man!

By: Mia L. Hazlett 5/11/12 I ran into the store the other day and there was this woman who deserved to get smacked out of this world!  Her son was maybe 4 or 5 years-old and she said, "This is my little man right here.  He takes good care of his momma."  What in the… Continue reading Your Son is NOT Your Man!

By: Mia L. Hazlett 5/9/12 http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/05/first-grader-suspended-for-singing-im-sexy-and-i-know-it/ I was talking with my BFF yesterday and couldn't believe what she told me.  I was telling her how my daughters had made up a dance to "I'm Sexy and I Know It," by LMFAO.  I don't particularly care for the song.  I basically listen to my iPod in… Continue reading I HAD A KID, NOT A ROBOT!

A Family Thing

By: Mia L. Hazlett 5/7/12 I know I preach so much about "The Village," but I believe in The Village.  I don't believe there are any single parents out there.  If you claim to be a single parent, than I believe you have a pride problem or you take a lot of people for granted… Continue reading A Family Thing
