Have you heard about the medical study done in the Mediterranean that seemed to prove that daily community activities (like street festivals and nightly gatherings) significantly increased life expectancy over more isolated lifestyles? Even with large amounts of toxins ingested like alcohol and cigs... I believe I heard it on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast 🤔 The power of group conciousness fascinates me...

Hi everyone!! It’s time for an introduction because we have so many new friends here!! 👋🏼
I’m Meredith and this is my hubs, James. We live in Georgia with our two oversized pups. Their names are Baloo and Mowgli (like from the jungle book). Here are 3 fast facts!!!
🌱I ventured into a clean lifestyle with Young Living a little over a year ago. Heading to Utah to visit the lavender fields this Summer!!
🌱I am a first grade teacher and will begin a new adventure with a new school in the Fall!
🌱We are foodies & love to try out new local eats!
👋🏼 thanks for following along. This has been an incredible year of change and growth and I am so thankful to share my journey with you!!
4 It's an opportunity to meet diverse people. One of the things I love most about the time I’ve spent in the foster care system is that we grew an appreciation for all different types of people. We truly do not see colour or ethnicity when we look at people. We just see…people!
5 It's an opportunity to be light in someone's darkness. For many children who come into care, their world is filled with darkness. From abuse, to drugs, to violence, to witnessing crime, it's dark. You have the opportunity to shine light by providing love, care, positive influence, a healthy example, and more!
6 You can develop great support systems and sounding boards. Some of my best friends (more like family) have been foster parents and have walked similar roads. You definitely learn what a great support system looks like. On some of my darkest days I have turned to our support system as a sounding board or a voice of reason. They have helped me navigate some sketchy waters.
A few months ago I was at a conference for work when I was asked, "What would you tell a person who is feeling called into foster care or adoption but is unsure?" Without taking a breath I responded, "Jump! Don't wait for all the answers. Jump off. Follow that call. Hurting children need you!"
I'll say the same thing to all of you reading. If you've felt called to step into foster care and care for children in need, don't wait, jump! It will be frustrating, you may feel defeated, and you will have times where you want to give up. That's the honest truth. Jump off and then weather the storm. There are children in need who really hope you will! They need love and support, in the broken system they’re unfortunately in. ❤️Part 3/3❤️ #youreaprettybigdeal

Is it worth all the fuss?
To read that, one has to ask, "Is this really worth it? Do I really want to put myself or my heart out there like that, just to be knocked back and forth like a tennis ball?"
The answer is yes! Yes it is worth it. The reason? Children are worth it. In the crossfire of behaviors brought on by past trauma, cold and disconnected judges, MIA case workers, a broken foster care system, and daily exhaustion that we feel from this journey, there are innocent children who've done nothing to deserve what’s happened to them. They were unwillingly dragged into the chaos and mess of this, caught in a hurricane of sorts. At last count, there are a lot of them.
To love another human being with no strings attached is what we were created to do, as human beings. We've been divinely created with the capacity to do so. And what an amazing gift that is!
Why you should.
We could add up all of the reasons why a person shouldn't be a foster parent. But we could do that with just about anything on earth. What about the reasons you should? There are six, but here's the biggest... 1 Love. We covered this one above, but I'll say it again- you were created, as a human being, to love other human beings.
2 The foster care system needs good people. There is a need. The foster care system needs strong, reliable, good-hearted, responsible people to care for children in need.
3 The number of children in need is not decreasing. You saw the statistic above- Over 100,000 children currently waiting. But 800,000 enter the system every year. If you break it down by day, thats almost 2200 children a day! Reality? That number is not decreasing.

My name is Roseanna, I’ve been a foster mum for 3 years and I’ve already had 23 children come stay with me. Some, even less than 24 hours but I’m more than happy to help out any kid that needs a home. Right now I’m caring for Axel and Tate!
Is fostering children worth it? Short answer, heck yeah it is! Keep reading to find out why.
I was so frustrated I couldn't see straight. I had rearranged our entire day, cancelled several appointments, pushed some meetings back on the calendar to make sure I was home with the two children I was caring for, because our case manager told me earlier that morning that she would be by for a visit at 2pm, sharp. "Please be on time. I have several other visits I have to make," her voice message said.
So I was on time. We barely made it home from a doctor's appointment across town, but we hit the mark. Because she had asked, urgently, to make it a priority.
Two o'clock came and went, 2:30 passed, then 3. It was finally 3:30pm when I received a text message explaining that she would have to reschedule for the next day because something had come up, last minute. I sat there for another 10 minutes, angry and frustrated, but trying not to let on to my children. I guess all we had to do with our days, and our life, was wait around for someone to show up, who really wasn't going to show up. Forget jobs, doctor's appointments, or errands we had, I thought silently.
It's not that I’m not understanding, nor un-patient. I am. Schedules change, appointments need to be rescheduled, I get it. But this was the 3rd time (in a row) this had happened. Not only that, but every phone call came the morning of the day she demanded a visit. And every cancellation happened at least an hour after she was supposed to show up.
I wasn’t frustrated....I was angry!
It was much more than that, however. Between the missed meetings, the skipped visits by family members, and the emotional collapse I had to deal with every time we left the visitation center without visiting, I had all we could take! I was ready to call it quits and it had only been a 2 months.
Part 1/3 ❤️
May has been all consuming. I have been busy in the studio and behind the scenes with Beauty Blessings AND now we officially have my parents, my inlaws, 2 sister in laws, a brother in law and a fur baby cousin living in Texas. My heart is full. We spent 10 years away from family and now they have all come to us! Funny how life works itself out. It's been awhile since I've posted so here's pictures of our Beauty Blessings event today! We had 8 volunteers and we were able to do 34 free services of nails and haircuts in Fort Worth. We also have several new faces in the ministry! I'm so excited about them and I'll be posting about it soon on @beautyblessingsministry go show them some love!
Kurze Frage ihr Süssies:
✖️Aus welcher Stadt kommt ihr bzw. welche größere Stadt befindet sich in eurer Nähe??
Ich plane aktuell mit meinen liebsten Kooperationspartnern kleine Yoga Events und würde eure Präferenzen gern mit einbringen.
✖️Außerdem würde mich interessieren, ob ihr auf einem Event lieber an einer sportlich-dynamischen Session teilnehmen würdet, oder ob euch eine Einheit zum Thema Entspannung eher zusagen würde?
Danke für euer Feedback und noch einen wundervollen Abend! #yogamitmady#yogaontheroad#communitylove
