[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Do you know?

Why are you doing it?

Why? ... the work... the projects... the places... the worship... the
people... the living... the shopping... the reading, listening, watching...
the time... the giving... the inviting... the caring... the carrying... the
praying... the staying... the making.

Why ya doing it? Danielle La Porte

Back in Port of Spain! It feels good! I called my grandma when I got in,
she answered her voice was sounding nice and strong! She welcomed me back,
said she's better, said nothing will beating her down anytime soon, started
talking politics so I knew! Oh yeah she's feeling good! It's on! I better
sit down, the conversation will be a long one!

She asked me if I spent time with my folks! I told her but of course! she
said I am Happy that you did .I told her I have something for her from
them, she got quiet! She said you know, my grandchildren don't have to
bring me anything, I remember when Sana was in college I was there with her
right through and all it is for me is that she has graduated, that's
enough! When you are on the move you need people and an environment that
supports and encourages you. You won't find that among people who are
helpless and hopeless. Hmm I thought! Yes Sheils, preach!

Blessings flow!
