Morning Mojo’s Purpose

When I initially set up Morning Mojo, it was to share positive, encouraging and spiritual thoughts. Then, without warning, life threw a curve ball, and my middle daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. So the purpose of my blog sort of wears many hats. Morning Mojo is my outlet to vent, share my fears and struggles, inform and discuss random topics and ideas. And of course, a place to share some serious, awesome mojo, in the hope readers feel inspired, realizing we are all pretty freakin’ messed up.

A Mini Glimpse Into My World

My name is Dee Dee, and I live in central Kansas. (No, I don’t live on a yellow brick road or have a dog named Toto. However, I have been in a tornado.) I work at an advertising agency where I am a production and traffic manager. In a nutshell, I make sure stuff get’s done and done right. I share my life with Rob. I am trying to raise three humans to be functioning members of society. I talk to my five cats like they are people and they all have human names. I use Google way too much. Thrift stores are my weakness. I think I can make everything I see on Pinterest. I own way too many pairs of slip-on slider shoes and Denver Broncos apparel. I think WWE is real. I hate childhood cancer. I believe in God. I am sarcastic. I love to make other people smile. I’m on my phone 95% of the time. I cuss when I’m mad. I don’t cry often, but if I do ~ watch out. I don’t pretend to have it all together. I try to be real ~ even if it sucks.

  1. Hi Dee, this is Gila, Ethan’s Mom. You re-posted my blog and I was curious about yours… so I have read your posts and I just want to let you know that I feel so relieved to know (and now this is starting to sound silly) that I am not alone in in this world of roller-coaster emotions. I feel alone often. Yes, my husband understands but he is a man afterall… feelings are like the discovery of diamonds in a mine… vary rare and almost never gets said out loud! So thank you for your blog, making moms like me feel less lonely is definitely a move in the right direction to loving like Jesus does!

    1. Hi Gila! Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. I have been busy and haven’t had a chance to check my comments. We so need to stick together so we never feel lost or alone. I am always here for you if you ever need to vent. I enjoy reading your blog.

  2. Hi DeeDee. Me again, but I wanted to let you know that I awarded you the Liebster Award, which is a cool little thing for newer bloggers with less than 200 followers, so we can all get to know each other and get out there in the blogging community! I would love if you would join in, You can see my post and the information at https://lifeoftracie.wordpress.com/2015/12/28/discover-new-blogs-liebster-award/ . I hope you will join in! I love getting to learn more about my fellow bloggers!

  3. I am also from Kansas.. born and raised here. I’m in Eastern Kansas but I love it out West and Southwest. Great little blog you have going here. It may be a good way for you to vent your stuff as you get your daughter through this rough patch. Wishing you well. -bz

  4. In Missouri here, north of the Joplin tornado site, and lived with twisters all my life. Married to a hub that prefers to go out and watch the sky when the alarm goes off rather than huddle in the basement with me and the dog. Yes, the dog to whom I also talk, and who tends to talk back, not always in ways that would printable…. BTW, you can do sOOOoo much good for other in sharing about your daughter’s medical experiences. My daughter is a mylenoma survivor. Thank you for being so kind as to do that.

  5. Hey there, I was wondering if you would be interested in participating in a blogging event I have just created called My Monthly Memories. It’s about creating an archive for you and your audience through monthly posts, I would love it if you would partake. You can find all the information here: https://thoughtsofasociallyanxiousextrovert.wordpress.com/my-monthly-memories-monthly-blogging-event/
    Thanks again!

  6. I stone hopped to your blog from advance research technology’s blog. You mentioned that because of changes in your life, your blog took off in different directions. That idea really resonated with me. For almost a year now I’ve been writing a blog on wisdom to be gained from 12 step programs. I very much enjoy writing it, and will continue to do so. However, over this year I feel my vista has deepened and widened. I want to write about many other things as well. I’ve already been writing articles for some other magazine type blogs. I now realize I need to open up another blog or a new section on my blog to reflect my growth. I’m not sure why I needed to write this to you, but somehow I felt inspired to do so.
    On a more personal note, I had a very serious case of cancer about 12 years ago and I’m still standing to the great surprise of my doctors. The year I was sick dramatically affected my wife and children. I really do feel for you. May G- d send a healing of body and soul to your daughter.
    All the best
    Moshe
