Thankful for the loving souls that refused to stop loving me, even in the moments when I feel I have no more love to give.
Love is reciprocal. We as humans are not invincible, but that is why we have the ability to love. Love gives us strength, inspires our courage, and picks us back up.
The hearts of my People is like no other... now don’t get me wrong... every ethnicity has a beautiful history and culture and all are beautiful in its own way... seeing this makes me even more proud to call myself Mexican!!! And call me a son of an immigrant and I’ll say you damm right!!! We’ve been making America great for a very long time!!! I won’t even mention your president, cause this isn’t about him... #lovealwayswins #migente #teamo❤️ #orgullomexicano 🇲🇽
The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more you'll clearly see their flaws. That's just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, children are abandoned, why friendships don't last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they are out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness' sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it's seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.
Happy 7 years and 5 months ❤️

Can we talk about something for a minute Like really talk about it
The other night I posted a photo, no water mark, no copyright. I never portrayed it as my own. I gave credit to the feed I found it on but I was so enamored with the photo I missed that it was a borrowed photo.
Well out of nowhere I was called out for it publicly. Then I was DM’d about it too.
I didn’t even have a chance to fix it before there was another post on my feed along with the words “steal”.
Whoa....is that really what IG has become
Not only is it not stealing when it’s a photo put out there but it was never the intent.
Can we just please build each other up instead of assuming the worst and tearing each other down
I do not share this for sympathy. I’m sharing this because after a couple of days this is still gnawing at me.
Just be the LIGHT

Just two sisters holding hands through the woods. This is a normal thing for them. Their bond is intense. When I wake Triss up in the morning the first thing she says is “go get Burke”. We enter Burke’s room and there are happy squeals all around. The hug constantly. They giggle constantly. If one cries, the other rushes over, grabs hands and says “deep breaths”. They have conversations that even I don’t understand but they do. They get it. They love without reserve. They love despite differences. They teach me so much. If you want to see me cry, just ask me to tell you how incredible love is between the tiniest of hearts who biologically have nothing in common. #lovealwayswins #loveismorethanblood

#kindnessmatters - Pass it on, today and every day!
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted" -unknown
Remember to pass along kindness to our patients, to the people we meet, our co-workers and people we see each day, because to them it will mean the world! Kindness does matter ...and kindness (and love) always wins!

“A soulmate isn’t someone who completes you. No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to compete yourself. A soulmate is someone who loves you with so much conviction, and so much heart, that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be.” #lovealwayswins #loveseesnocolor #mrandmrs #positivity #thejenkins
Today on The Kate & Mike Show we talked with @saraavantstover about redemption and a woman’s right to choose to carry a child or not.
Sara courageously came out with her abortion story this past spring and is raising awareness about the lack of support and resources we have around this choice which 1 in 3 women make in the US and UK for a variety of reasons.
I learned SO much from hearing Sara’s story and the research she’s done as she’s formed Redemption Circle, an organization for women who’ve had abortions.
If you’ve had an abortion, please listen in. And if you have a friend who has, please send this to her. Link in my profile.
Sara’s final words in the episode had me weeping and I had no further questions after hearing them. May you be as knocked out by what you hear as I was in the best way possible.
Here’s to redemption and a woman’s right to choose what she does with her own body.
