Tres doctor decided he should have a Bone Density Scan done. He was worried the long term use of seizure medication could be weakening his bones. “Its just a 15 minute scan of the body.” So we make the appt. and drive 50 minutes to the only hospital in our area that can do the scan on kids. Once there its decided that Tres will have to have anesthesia in order to stay still. The anesthesiologist comes in with this long list of possible complications and a paper with a dotted line to sign. I was sooo frustrated. How could a simple procedure turn into an all day, possible complication type issue? Not only that but im told he has to have the procedure and I have to sign that I wont sue if anything goes wrong. So the paper was signed, yet another IV was started, and missed, and started again. Through it all I never got upset. Why, you may ask. Because my Tres held out his arm with no complaint for the IV, did not get upset when the nurse missed the first time, and came back to me when it was over with his usuall big Tres smile. Who am I to complain. I have a God who protects and a 14 year old who is braver and stronger than his mom.

I wrote a story prompted by my writing group. It's about church, community and racism. Since I published it on my blog I have had so many people reach out with the same shared experience. It's been comforting. Then I found out there is a whole movement of people sharing their stories of leaving church spaces that refuse to respond to racism and injustice. Thank you @thewitnessbcc.

Too close? Just making sure ya'll see these curls. Had my favorite curly girl expert @torrensalicia cut the back of my hair (looser curl pattern) even with the tightly coiled girls at the top. Love the shape that was created. Ima release the desire of length for a fuller style. #curlygirlmethod #natural #innersence
Do not fear. Do not look at the seen but that unseen. Keep your eyes on things above. What is happening in the earth realm is not the end of the story. #kingdomminded #hopeishere #ihearthesoundofvictory #drybonesrattling #elevation
