A Place of Power

At 42 years old, I have gleaned a few things though my life’s journey. Simple though they may be, they are my strengths. One is to always stand up straight and tall! The power stance says it all. If I walk in with my head down, and I am not aware of my environment, it says I am not able the face the world. My mom always said, “Stand up straight!” I am such a hard head that, yes after her death I am finally listening, and she will be gloriously glowing to know I do! My mother -in - law always taught her children to be aware of their environment, which says I am not a victim, I know what’s going on! Besides my stature, I take care of my skin and have since I was a teen. My face is my billboard, but behind the eyes (saturated in a good eye cream) is my soul. I care for my soul over my body. If my soul is at rest then I can fully function and do what I need to do every day. If I am not clear then I cannot be on target daily. Being on task daily may not mean getting the to do list ove

What I know...

There are many things that are a mystery but I do know, that children give to our lives, they are not takers. I believe I have met some of the most beautiful angels right here on planet earth, and I believe I meet more daily. I know that music heals, scents can clear and give peace, and colors bring joy and protection. I know that our lives can enjoy rest for our souls and that peace can abide. Tumult can end when we are sure, and giving these keys to others is a joy. I know animals are guides, grandmas are queens, and grandpas are warriors. Neighbors are blessings, and friends are rare jewels and a kindred spirit is who you have your pow-wow coffee with. Sisters are the ones who know your story and can vouch for your cause, even if it is shopping and laughter. Singing with the saints in the sanctuary is eternal. Flowers evoke passion, charm is deceitful, beauty is vain, hand shakes are integral and so is a name. Advocacy for the voiceless is needed and a lot more courage too! I kno
