Wife, Mother & Grandmother

Growing up in privileged society I was partially blinded to the outside world and its problems. I mean ... I could read what was in the newspaper, and put it down. I could watch the news, then change the channel. And even until recently I could see what was on the internet, and just scroll down. It wasn't that I didn't care, but what was someone like me going to do?

I have always done some kind of volunteer work, even as a teenager. I worked in homes for the disabled, have done hospice for the dying and even walked the streets to help the homeless. But it wasn't until my children were grown and I became grandmother that I knew I needed to step it up. I had more of me to give.

By chance I met two individuals who opened my eyes wide. They made me take a closer look at what was happening outside my small comfortable space and I couldn't look away any longer. I knew this was the time, the place and the organization that I needed to be part of.

I am here to do whatever I can to leave this world a better place, not just for me and my family, but for everyone. My faith has told me, " I am my brothers keeper"

The seeds have been planted.
.... Let it Rain!
