I remind myself that everyday is such a blessing just to be here, and I can't forget that. I am here, now, and that's what counts. It took me so long to get here that now I need to appreciate and embrace every...single...moment. Even when I'm at my wits end with the girls, ready to break down, I have learned to just take a second to myself, say a prayer and then let it go cause I don't have time to feel sorry for myself, there are 120 girls that need way more love and care than I do. So as the wise Sister Gloria told me, "Just think that if you might not be able to be there as long as you desired, do now with greater love, so that what you could have accomplished in duration you do it now in concentration." This has summed up my new mentality which is to LOVE and embrace what makes this time all worthwhile, the small things.
I’ve worked to make Hogar Casa Main my new home. Digging into the heart of what this place really is about and how I can truly be of service to the girls and the Sisters and how they, in return, can help me to learn and grow in life experiences, and in Christ’s love.
