Hey everyone! An old friend of mine had a devastating loss last week. Both his brother and his father passed away within days of each other. I know that a funeral and burial for 1 person can cost from $7000 & up, at least that was the price in 2010 when my mom passed. However, someone has made a fundraiser on behalf of his sister and there are doing a raffle if you donate at least $25. If you can donate anything, I ask that you please take a moment to help out, please. Thank you.
I realize, this is probably one if the first posts I’ve done this year. Life has been moving along so quickly and I’ve been changing, mentally. Thank goodness since people trust me enough to give me the chance to take a hold of projects and move forward. Today’s submission has pictures of teamwork! We do it all,.together!
Thanks for visiting!
This weekend I helped Renda Writer host the 2nd Annual Art Show in Downtown Los Angeles. We had an amazing turnout, with friends from all over joining us in this cause. The only thing that could have made this any better would have been if Ellen DeGeneres herself would have shown. It’s ok, we understand, you have your own birthday celebrations to attend to. But this small 3-piece series is my submission for Hope.
I’m still amazed on how he pulled this all together. The networking alone had to have been intense.
Christian, to me, represents how so many people come to California with the same types of hopes and dreams of success. Whether it’s in acting, finance or spring-board jumping, we are all a step from being homeless. Don’t judge a book by its cover.
The pure joy that comes from this guy as he performs is almost too much for me to handle. Intense, poetic and passionate. It is truly a sight to watch a poet perform his magic with words.
I’m so happy to have met Renda and for him allowing me to be a part of this dream/goal/idea or whatever you want to call it! He’s got a good heart and inspires me to be hopeful of the future.
My entry for this week’s photo challenge is 2 of my 3 kids playing on my lap. This is my little family.
As long as they are happy (for the most part), I figure I’m doing my job right, as their mother. Family means so much to some and little to others. To me, my family is much more than just my kids. It includes people who I feel like are brothers, sisters and cousins, without the blood relations. I grew up not knowing a lot of my parents’ family so I created an extended version of my own. For my children though, we are all here together.
Thanksgiving celebrated the 1 year passing of my mother. Although she is no longer here, I’m sure she is proud of all my children and I’m happy she no longer suffers. May all of you enjoy your holidays the best way you see fit and remember, tomorrow is never promised.
Added the rest of my little family.
