Stop waiting for Friday. For summer. For someone to fall in love with you. For life. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you’re in now.
Wanting to do more. Wanting to be more. Wanting to give more and wanting to accomplish more. Hurry up and wait. Waiting on my scholarship application for Certified Peer Specialist to be determined. I really and truly want to take the training classes in Norcross this year for the three day conference. I should know something in a few days. Hoping the Lord hears these prayers and turns my dream into a reality. I was nominated by the ACT Team of GA and hope to make them proud by serving at the three day conference. I have high hopes of reaching many others with my work in the very near future for the State of GA.
930 Georgia Certified Peer Specialists Since October 2001
And for my life to be turned into a living hell.
I hope to mentor to many and have many mentors. I have many that I need to pay tribute to especially, Ms. Brenda Williams my Certified Peer Specialist who has always been there for me and her door is always open and who is still encouraging and uplifting me to remain positive and steadfast with my goals. I am grateful to God for my friends and mentors along my way. The ACT Team has turned out to be a wonderful positive step in my life. I have been working on an updated resume for sometime now and will be using it when I make application for CPS once I complete the training. I have been told that I must remember that I can never thank my mentor enough. I must figure out creative ways to thank him or her as frequently as possible. I must be clear in my understanding that the mentor – protege relationship is based upon a natural, personal relationship. We must always communicate honestly, expressing our fears, concerns, doubts, successes, and failures. I must always work hard to apply the principles my mentor teaches me. I am grateful to God for my friends and mentors.
Asking the Lord to send me a soul mate and life long friend who loves the Lord with all his heart. I have been basically alone now for ten years and want to be in a relationship again. I miss being “in love.” I have a best friend but it is just not the same. I am hoping the Lord sends me someone who loves the Lord like no other. It has been just me and my son Tyler for ten years now and I am praying fervently that the Lord sends me someone who will love me for who I am and accept me and my children, the wonderful people that we are. Enough of my mushy love feelings needing to be fulfilled.
As a young person I had a feeling of destiny and even now in my 40’s I still hold tight to that truth. I have always had dreams of accomplishing something of major significance. I have worked for Ridgecrest Baptist Conference Center. I have graduated college, I have adopted three daughter’s, I have gained a lot of ground in the O.C.GA. The Official Code of GA Anotated for family violence victims, those parentally alienated, the mentally challenged and for parental reunification with many wins in my full favor to present date. Never in 20 years to have the slightest hint, suggestion, implication or accusation of wrongdoing as a mother nor as a wife. Never in 20 years. I have graduated The Respect Institute, I am currently working on becoming a Certified Peer Specialist, I have had a blog at The Covington News now for 2 1/2 years and I have given my all to my children in the court room and out as best I could, leaving behind a legacy and point that they will one day be very proud of and a foundation that has been laid in the law if they were to ever find themselves in my position with their children.
Working on stressors and triggers so as not to have a relapse. Looking out for the warning signs and using my coping skills not to fall into depression again. Out today taking in all the blooming trees and foliage were such peaceful memorable moments. Moments to hold tight to and to remember their calm.
