we love you too

I am so pleased.

The Mountain Family Center is a place in Hot Sulphur Springs that helps families in the community that are having a tough time with bills, etc.
I went there today for the first time, met a woman inside who immediately asked me basic questions about my life, and I answered them all openly and honestly.
After chatting for about 5-10 minutes, she started to tell me what she can do to help us.

She handed me paperwork to fill out at home, LEAP assitance, Rental Assistance, Thansksgiving Dinner application (for a free dinner), and started asking me what size diapers Malia wears, if we eat meat.....
She was filling boxes FULL of food, and loading them up for me to take home.
After the food, she rummaged through a desk and took out a gift card for the grocery store (25 dollars) and handed it to me....
She was helpful towards our basic needs and beyond!
She even asked me if Malia had everything she needed for winter, a coat, boots, etc.
I told her we do not have boots and she gave me some.
She was incredibly helpful, and this was all for FREE.
The community donates food & clothing (like a thrift store) so that people in their community can have help. I feel so thankful and loved and lucky!
Here is a photo of some of the stuff we brought home today from the Mountain Family Center.

some art

Here is one of many watercolor christmas cards I made.

This is a scramble of words off of a notepad I used to carry with me everywhere.
I liked taking notes as an art form.

Filling space everywhere.

my child is amazing

getting to know you

I have been incredibly distant with my friends, community, family and even self.
It has strictly been a time for me to focus whole heartedly on my new child.
I wanted a place where I can reach out to the people in my life who are outside my wonderful bubble, and also a place where I can reflect on my thoughts and get to know myself once again.

When you think about it, do it.
