Being a Mother-to-Another
These photos are from travels to Ecuador and Africa. While there I participated with a group that provided systems for clean water, educational supplies, basic necessities for living, and toys. We also spent time making deposits of care, kindness, and love to as many people as we could. My intention was to let every person I spoke to, know they matter.
My desire is to make the world a better place in every way I can. I believe being a Mother-To-Another contributes to the betterment of the individual and has a rippling effect to humankind. 1+1+1+1 until at least 111 million people.
Being a Mother-to-Another
I was honored to receive the very 1st Real Truth International™ Scholarship. This scholarship transformed my life and allowed me to work toward my dreams. I am grateful beyond words for the opportunity I was given.
Before the scholarship, there was an ache within me to accomplish something more, specifically my Master’s Degree. Being a single mom I wanted to give my son the best of me and provide him with all the opportunities I didn’t have.
Prior to having my degree, I was working for the local school district and living check-to-check. The dreams I had of finishing school seemed out of reach. My son was encouraging and kept asking me when I was going back to school. He wanted to see me walk across that stage as much as I did, and I was never able to get ahead enough financially to go back. My fear was for him to be filling out his college application and asking, “Mom why didn’t you….?” The ruling thought going through my mind was not wanting to disappoint my biggest fan.
A day I will never forget was after I received the scholarship …. we were driving from work and I told him, “We will have to get on a homework schedule together because I am going to be in school now too”. I was so proud to be able to tell him that our dreams are coming true that I burst into tears when I saw his elated emotions.
I walked across the stage on June 1, 2019. As I looked in the audience I saw my family but most importantly, my son. I could see the pride and love on each of their faces. This was indeed a life-changing event. My son now says, “I can’t wait to walk across the USC stage and make you cry.” He now knows it’s a possibility for him.
Post my degree, I am pursuing the field of Law and Justice. I’ve made great strides in my career and thankful for that amazing support that was a major stepping stone towards the future I had always dreamed of.
“Being a Mother-To-Another benefits the giver and the receiver; the giver expands in love, the recipient forever knows they matter.”
