💗👍🚒"Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them." — Lady Bird Johnson. I believe in these children and the best way for me to demonstrate it is by gifting each child a toy and telling them something beautiful! Every child working in the streets to buy food can't afford toys - especially when the product is grass for animal feed. Yet, her smile 😀is my confirmation of success!🤶👶🏿🌱
Remembering our Roots...Wow beyond blessed to say the least. I've been very grateful having all these full days of living. Lately I've been feeling all across the board not just for myself, but everyone reaching back to their roots, where that seed first sprouted and started growing, digging deep once again to get ready to Spring into action. Literally last night my prayer was to return to the full child like state of mind with purity and innocence, and where did I wonder today? Yup back to my Grade school. God, you're funny. Today was beautiful in many ways. So much praise to the Father, our Creator. Being back at St. Clement was Glorious. I was there to explore...or so I thought and sure enough service was in session. Sat in and saw one of my 5th grade teachers. Boy did the tears come flowing. Tears of gratefulness for time with all the wonderful people and peaceful parish I was spoiled to have grown up in. Thank God I grew up being able to have had so many great people help strengthen my Faith and Relationship with the Almighty. St. Clement shut down years back, but now runs as a school for kids with autism...how amazing!?! God Bless this World and All of You in it. Thanks for every moment I've shared with any of you. Because of God I'm overflowing with Joy, Gratefulness, and Love!!! #stclement#give#praise#remember#your#roots#beyond#grateful#joyful#full#of#love#pure#innocence#stay#a#kid
"Beloved One, everyone is guiltless in truth, as no one can alter God’s handiwork of perfection. Give us your feelings of heaviness so we can lighten your load. Give us any guilt, anger, or blame that may shroud your loving outlook.
Enjoy the peace within your heart once more.” .

It was 11 years ago when I moved to this Peachy State. I remember feeling star struck from the magic of this city. It was far from home yet, it was new. It was different. It was cozy and It was exciting!
After seeing my long time GYN doctor I didn’t realize how uncomfortable it would be finding a new one. I didn’t have health insurance, so I looked up a community clinic to make an appt. I specifically picked the woman with the Spanish last name because I wanted to identify with her.
She was fair skin. Her hair was long and dark she had bright red lipstick and spoke with a heavy NY accent. She was smart, pretty, seemed trendy. I wanted to like her, but something felt very off by the way she was touching me.... Walking out of the room, I felt dirty. I felt cheap. And I felt disgusting.
I never reported that incident because I always questioned whether it was just my imagination or in fact sexual assault. It took several pap smears later to convince myself that I was in fact violated by a woman in a powerful position.
I never spoke openly about this situation, but I am now because I want every single person reading this to know, if something feels wrong, then that’s because something is wrong. Never second guess how you feel just because a person stands in an authoritative position. Wrong is wrong no matter who commits the crime. .
Welcome home, Dear One.
Oh, Sweet One, you have been gone so, so, so long.
My long, lost one.
The deepest essence of innocence that became life.
My sweet rose.
The days and nights have been so long without you here.
Sweet, sweet reprieve.
The time has come to join in Union all the parts scattered through time.
The time has come to rejoice and walk freely in this life again.
Sweet, sweet reprieve.
So, so, so grateful you have returned.
Oh, I see, I see how much you have grown.
The sadness in your eyes when you left is now gone.
The gentle light falls upon your presence.
Your open heart beats freely and fearlessly in your return.
By the essence of grace you have transformed what was dark despair in your eyes and in your heart into divine light.
You are home.
Thank you, thank you for coming home.
