Can We Make a Difference? March 31, 2009

I am on a Journey. Would you like to come along?  Sometimes it is lonely and I want the world to join me and see what I see.  I’m 57 years young and the Mother of  2 sons and 1 daughter, 2 cats and 1 dog.  Sounds simple enough!  Well I will tell you about my journey and why I f eel it is important.  I am an RN by profession, a care giver by nature.  Life has given me many challenges to over come as many of you yourselves are quite familiar with.  I became disabled at age 39 and was forced to leave my childhood dream which was nursing.  Wow!  But I was the care giver, now what?  My journey was about to take a major turn.  After my grief process (anger lasting way to long until acceptance) I needed to redefine who I was and what I was to do. You know the saying, watch out what you ask for.  Well I begged God to write it on the wall for me and he answered when I received a phone call asking if I would be interested in adopting a child.  Three weeks later I became a Mother for the first time…a beautiful baby boy was placed in my arms and I knew exactly what God had in store for me. My job was to continue being a care giver in the Greatest most Precious profession of all. I have since adopted 2 more children, both with special needs.  As a Mother and child advocate I became more aware of the environment and what effect it would have on my children.  I began looking much closer at how I lived.  My journey started by simple recycling household trash and progressed to becoming an advocate for Mother Nature.  My children are now 16, 12 and 11 years old and I want to help others to become more earth friendly in their daily living.  My motto is “One Step at a Time”  to helping becoming more earth friendly. My journey has been a gradual one, as this is how I have learned to live it.  I think I have and still can make a difference and I believe each person can make a difference on this earth by starting “One Step at a Time”.  Move forward and make a difference. It is easier than you think. Start your Journey because you are never too young or too old.

    I chanced upon your blog while browsing. I was very impressed by your write up on this page. It is very true that we need to start the journey at some place, irrespective of our age. Like you, I too believe we all can make a difference. However small or big it might be. Most of the time, it is the small steps, and small deeds that count. Welcome to blogosphere, and I wish you all the very best.
    I look forward to reading your blog often.

    Adarsh.
