Epiphanies

"Sometimes, things happen because we make them happen. And sometimes, things happen because they are meant to lead you where you're supposed to be in that exact time and moment--because that is exactly where you need to be." I was raised a Catholic.

Excited for: My Sister’s Visit to the Philippines!

I cannot count the times my sister and I made sacrifices for one another. I guess that's sisterhood. You give and you take. My sister has always been my rock.

Because I hurried getting back on my feet, my right leg muscles had to compensate, making sure to protect my feet from feeling pain… Continue reading Doctors Who Care

Productive Sunday!

I am thankful for activities to keep my mind and my hands (and feet too) busy. I am someone who needs to be doing something in order to keep my mind from being idle and wandering off to not-so-positive thoughts that only make me feel bad about myself. It's the third day since I sprained… Continue reading Productive Sunday!
