Why “Mayhem Mama”?

The definition of “mayhem” on Wiktionary:


mayhem (plural mayhems)

state of disorderchaos

The fighting dogs created mayhem in the flower beds.

What if the legendary hero Robin Hood had been born into                                  the mayhem of the 20th century?

All of us are given skills and talents by God – either at birth or through the lessons He teaches us throughout our lives.


I am convinced that when God was giving out the talents of organization, self-discipline, and time management I overslept. There were also several other gifts for which I am sure my Guardian Angel neglected to wake me, but I am not going to go into those right now.


Subsequently, now that I am 40 something and still over-sleeping when it comes to lessons on those topics,  God has been hitting me between the eyes with a 2×4 gently providing me with the desire and the lessons I require to  learn how to tame the chaos and disorder in my life, in my body, in my schedule, and in my house.  But given that I am hard-headed and difficult to awaken, those ever so gentle pushes are beginning to resemble direct orders.


So, until I get  my house in order,

I develop more self-discipline regarding my health,

and I can get where I need to be on time,


I remain –


Mayhem Mama!

  1. This sound like it came right out of my own mouth. I can totally relate. So glad to know I’m not the only one with these struggles. May God bless us both on our journey of less chaos in our lives.
