Everything happens for a reason are the words that cross my mind and mouth so often these days as life presents me with evidence again and again proving that I am always exactly where I am meant to be.
|Thank you for the best three weeks, I love you all and miss you already.|
My day started with my little brother making his traditional Sunday breakfast for the family, this one being special as it is Mothers day and Angela's Mother and step Father were visiting for the weekend to enjoy some mother daughter time. David went all out and we all enjoyed breakfast in the formal dining room with the Country music playing. I miss him already, my little brother that is. I am so glad I went, I needed this visit, he needed this visit. We connected and bonded so strongly and it was hard leaving, I wish we could live next door to each other and fish every weekend, one day maybe my wishes will come true.
|Auntie JoJo loves you the biggest!|
|If we can find one thing right all the things wrong just don't matter so much|
anymore I am realizing, when we aren't focused on all the wrong things
more right just keeps coming our way every day all day!
|San Antonio, Texas ~ Downtown|
As we reached San Antonio the young man who helped me on the buss came up to me to thank me and we shared a couple moments of conversation about his new start that gave me and him the biggest smiles on our faces as we said goodbye.
|Catherine and Marie it was such a pleasure meeting you both <3|
I found my way toward the front of the station and had a seat. A man sat next to me, covered in Tattoo's, a cross sat under his left eye and tear drop under his right. He looked frustrated so I said hello and introduced myself. I asked if everything were okay, he shared with me that he was headed home from Dallas and that the buss did not go as far as his small town so he was hoping he had not missed the van service to take him home. We spent the better part of an hour engaged in a very deep conversation where he got real honest with me about his desire to provide for his wife and family and trying to turn his life around after spending most of it in prison. He was so frustrated with all the no's and lack of second chances he was finding while trying to get work locally that he was taking a job far from home against his wives wishes. He got as Far as Dallas and listened to his heart and turned around to go home and keep trying. I shared with him my own mistakes in the past and my own struggle in coming back from those mistakes. We talked about God, meditation and came to the conclusion he would love to return to school and in some way help others. It was a great connection and I was happy to say goodbye knowing he is returning home and has a happy family waiting his arrival.
Shortly after another lady sat beside me, she also just lost her brother and was picking here niece up who is coming in from Mexico. We share over a half hour together getting to know each other, exchanging contact info and finding comfort in sharing our losses and gains in life.

|Happy Mothers Day, this has been a great mothers day for me, sharing|
it with new friends along my way to Phoenix turned out to be a great
gift for us all.
I love you all from a place of being grateful for each mile I travel, every hand I shake and all the tears and laughter I am blessed to share with so many along the way.
