Spiritual Mirrors - Olivia Jade

Yesterday, there was a  meet up with the ten young ladies from the St Jude's Home For Girls.

 A very good friend sponsored a trip to the islands off Trinidad's West Coast. This was a first for all of us, boarding the boat and learning the history of the islands that make up part of our country's history just off the coast of Venezuela.

They thought we would get out and take a dip in the water -  no chance people! of course they were a little disappointed when they heard that there would be no swimming.

Despite that we had a great time, the ferry was comfy, there were lots of laughs and we were able to spend some time after the trip getting their favourite - Fried Chicken!

I probably have said this many times - this is one of the best things I have ever done, the feelings that I feel spending time with them is unparalled. Despite some of the tough moments- because there are many serious situations within this dynamic, I have learnt about having courageous conversations, non-judgement,love with no conditions and saying no.

 

Thank you to all that made this happen.

Peace
