Becoming Me in 111 Words

 

Me!

Army brat in a critical household

My heart full of anger

Alone and lonely

Why bother?

 

Headband

Conservative college student, trapped again

Rebel by school’s end

Discovering new worlds

Finding life!

 

Migrant worker- me!

Migrant farm laborer

From Florida to Washington State

Seeing racism up close

Ready to make a difference.

 

scan0012

Married Al and had two beautiful babies

– was unprepared and overwhelmed,

divorce and chronic fatigue left me

feeling empty, alone, beaten down.

 

Me, Pam, Elaine2

Enter Jean, Elaine and Pam

Learned to parent myself and my children

Mentors’ teachings will last forever

I am whole.

 

What Love Means to Me www.amma.org www.embracingtheworld.org

Enter Amma

In her music I find Joy

In her arms I find Home

In her mission I find Purpose.
