OctPoWriMo: October 9th-12th

Green thumbs and calloused hands turn dirt into a bed of flowers. 
I watch you casually sprinkle life into a seed and watch it grow. 
Mother to children and mother nature you share nothing but love. 
I pray that one day my hands will too learn some of what you know.

And as we all age  
the new life shows signs  
of thinking like you  
when you were that age too. 
You are the life blood.  
The necessary pieces  
that help us put together  
who we are  
and where we come from.

I first learned about God, the Spirit, and his Son through the Church,
But only understood Him and all His ways because of you.
You represent what the beating heart of religion truly is,
And I do my best to live my life taking from your cue.

Fall And The Basic Girl

I didn’t mind if I was widely and publicly mocked for something that genuinely made me happy. It was the season that forever holds the symbol of change and promise for new growth. #fall

How Donuts Could Save The World

The act of sharing food brought these people together in its own rebellious act of uniting those who are different from each other, and it tore down the hatred that tends to seep out from behind ignorance and lack of empathy.
