Catching Up..

Hello Everyone!

I know I haven't really been doing a lot of talking lately, but I have great reason for that. Things have been moving fairly quickly around here. We have been playing and practicing and practicing and playing, you all know how it goes. All in all it has been great so far. I am loving being apart of the Phoenix Mercury. So far we are 5-1 but most of all we are undefeated on our home floor. We do have to play Seattle before we head out on the road but I am looking forward to it being 6-0 at the house.

We have had some tough challenges that have come to the US AirWays Center. San Antonio, New York, Sacramento, Minnesota, and Los Angeles. They have all been great tests for us, but so far we have passed every last one of them. I have to say that the Minni game was fun, but I hated to see my former teammate get hurt. Seimone had been playing so well, as you all know she was being the Great Seimone Augustus and then some. To see her in pain was not good thing for me. We have accomplished a lot of good things together, and I am praying for a successful procedure and recovery for her.

Now on to the LA game - it was really a great win for us. Many believe that I was trying to play well due to the fact that LA was my team last year, but I honestly just wanted to win. I have said this before - once my time in LA was up, MY TIME WAS UP. It is about me and my new team the Phoenix Mercury. I was happy that I played well though, but not because it was LA, but because I have been working hard and I am glad that it is finally paying off. I know that I am where I am suppose to be and where the Lord wants me to be. My teammates have been great, the coaching staff is awesome, and the organization is very supportive and behind each player 100%.
I must say that I am in a great place mentally and physically. I have gotten my confidence back, I am in a comfortable situation, and I am so much more happier.

As you all know last year around this time I was in a very dark and unhappy place both on and off the court, but thank God - He has brought me out of that and I am now able to love what I do as well as be happy while doing it. I think this is and will be a special season for us so please continue to follow and support us; and know that I thank all of you that support me and was still supporting me through all of my struggling times. This is a great season and be prepared for more great things to come!!

Season Opener & More!

Lets talk more about the time that I have been having here in Phx.

I have talked about my teammates and how great they have been and it seems to get better everyday. Gotta love that. I am learning the system a lot faster than I thought, but trust me there is more for me to learn, but I am happy with the progress so far; and the coaches have been great. I am learning so much from the staff here, and Bridget Pettis is definitely one of the most helpful energetic people that I have met thus far. She keeps us laughing at all times. It doesnt matter the time of the day she will have that same energy and you will be laughing. She can also be serious and get her point across, though. Then its right back to putting a smile on your face.

We have finished up training camp and had some really good practice games against some of the other teams in the league that we were fortunate enough to win. We all learned more and more about each other and that is just going to continue to grow.

Now on to whats about to come up for us. NONE OTHER THAN THE FIRST HOME GAME. It is this saturday on the 6th of June against the San Antonio Silver Stars. I am so excited. Can you believe it, the season is here. It seems like just the other day we all were overseas. This will be an exciting season everyone, not for just one particular team ( although you know that I am all for the Mercury. LOL), but I mean across the entire league. I am sure that you all will not want to miss this season and what is about to happen. I know I cant wait and I cant even see it the way that you all get to see it. I love what I do and I am so happy that I am still blessed enough to compete like we do. I love the excitement that we bring to others, but most of all the Hope that we bring to sooooooooo many young women and some young men as well. I am getting chills just thinking about it.

Ok I am off now, I have to save some of this exciting energy for our Home opener again it will be on the this Saturday June the 6th come out and cheer us on. We would love to have you.
