Our neighbors threw a neighborhood Christmas party. We are still getting to know everyone so it was the perfect time to hang out with the whole block in one spot. One moment was definitely a highlight. Normally at parties or group events I stay close to Tres to make sure he feels apart of the festivities. I had gone into the kitchen and started to get a drink and looked up to see Tres surrounded by a group of people. He was showing them how his ipad worked. Afterwards the group got into a discussion about Tres schooling and activities he participates in. I walked over to add to the conversation and they said ” Oh, he already told us about that.” It was a BIG moment for me. He was able to navigate and engage great conversation without me. I am so grateful for technology. With his ipad he truly is becoming independent. #inclusion #disabilityrights
The History of Us

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
