Making a better future

So I feel very compelled to write a little more on the topic of racism and judgement. In any form, whether it be color of our skin, sexual preference, color of our hair, or whatever else that may set us apart from one another!  I touched on it in a quick comment I posted on facebook on Martin Luther King Jr. day, but yesterday I watched an Oprah special that touched me deeply and I wanted to revisit this topic. It was so crazy to me that the “I have a Dream” speech was in 1963!! I couldn’t believe it, I’m sure I may have known this already but to just think that in 1963, less than  50 years ago we were a society that harbored so much dislike and hate for each other, seems unfathomable! The things that set us apart are what truly make us unique and beautiful. The inner shine should always be allowed to glow, but is unable if we as people are darkening it with mean words or actions. Then as the show continued you realize that there is still a lack of love for people to this day in some people’s hearts! One of the quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. is “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends” That really stayed with me I have always been one to stand up for people and to fight for what I believe. We can all do this!! It will fill you up with happiness and joy and content when you speak out on what you know is right. There’s way too many people being judged and bullied still to this day! I myself have been in a way bullied by some degree over the years, mainly the form came in the way of blonde jokes, but keep in mind some of these were completely inappropriate, claiming my stupidity and or claiming I was highly sexually active..ext ext. These mostly came at an age when I didn’t even understand what was being said. So even our “jokes” need to be carefully monitored.  I challenge you…Lets all shed a light into each other’s hearts and love each other without judgement or fear! Find what you can within yourself and always make a positive difference when given this wonderful opportunity. Just a smile, a hug, handshake or a kind word will go far. We should always make habit of walking in other peoples shoes, trying to understand where they are coming from and learning new perceptive on things. That’s how in turn we all grow and fully commit to being the best we can be. I once heard and agree that God Created a Human race, people created racism! We are all equal and deserve an equal amount of love. “Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that” MLK. I really feel very blessed that the people I have surrounding me carry this kind of love daily. My family has always taught me that this is the only way to be and there were no other options and for that I’m thankful. My friends are unique and each one simply beautiful in their own wonderful way. I truly am grateful for everyday that I get to spend with each of you.
So I hope this all finds you with a greater sense of Love in your heart! I have a lot to share. I want to encourage you to do this to the fullest with every breath because we never know what may be in store for us.

With happy thoughts of a better world for each of us….

Dreams 2011

I'm so excited as I enter into the final trimester of my pregnancy! I'm thankful for every kick and every little movement I feel. I'm even thankful when I feel nausea and other "pregnancy" type of symptoms. lol That sounds weird but I'm a firm believer in living in the moment and if that particular moment involves nausea, well then so be it! We are finally set on a name but aren't telling!! Only a select few know because we had way to many opinions coming our way and man oh man that was making a hard decision even harder! Aaron and I are getting excited to have the chance to teach a little person all the important things in life. I hope he loves easily, accepts people with an open heart, works hard for things he cares about, laughs often, and embraces this wonderful life with all the joy a little person can hold. We will be there to always support him, and guide him through this life so that he can be whatever he wants to be! yay!!! I'm going to be mommie and I swear after all these years I never thought it would be a possiblity, its funny too because when other people would share what there dreams were I would tell them to BELIEVE! Then I would constantly hold them in the light and think of them accomplishing whatever it was they set out to do. This dream for me is probably the biggest one I have ever had! Really!! Even when I was a little girl all I wanted to be is a mommie! I had 14 kids names picked out before I even started dating! lol Which thank goodness I never used because they were pretty silly now that I think about it! :0)  Many of you know Aaron and I have been married for 11 years this April and honestly have tried and tried to concieve! i've always felt thankful because he never made me feel bad and we were actually coming to terms with never being parents. He would say "I married you to be with you not to be a dad or parents" He really is that amazing! So just when we were losing hope a miracle happened. God or spirit or whatever you believe in stepped in and said Now what were you thinking??? Giving up so easily! :0) So here we are 26 weeks pregnant, happy as can be and about to welcome a son into this world with more love then our hearts can even hold! Thank you!!!!! Is all I can say! So Never give up hope and always Believe in yourself and your dreams! I believe in you and in miracles and know that dreams do come true everyday! <3
