Child abuse is defined as the physical, sexual or emotional
mistreatment or neglect of a child or children.
Children who have a history of neglect or physical abuse are at risk of developing life altering issues which include, but are not limited to developmental problems, mental illness, anxiety, depression, and will act out and behave in inappropriate ways...
Child abuse is more than bruises and broken bones.
There have been many people throughout my life
who I have lost, but I am not sad.
I remember all the good times, the love, the laughter,
how we pulled together through hard times and
most of all, the feelings we shared.
I'm sharing this on my wall to remember with a smile
those special people who are no longer with me
but are forever in my heart.
I learned the hard way that I cannot always count on others
to respect my feelings, even if I respect theirs. Being a good
person doesn't guarantee that others will be good people too.
You can only control the things you do and allow your actions
and words to speak volumes about the type of person you are.
As for others, you can only choose to accept them
or walk away.
For each and every one of you on my friends list, I love looking
at your pictures, sharing jokes and news with you all, as well as
support during good times and bad.
I am so happy to have you among my friends.
We will see who will take the time to read this message until the end.
If you appreciate your friends from all over the world, go ahead
and share this onto your profile.
Thank you all for being a part of my life.
I am strong
I've been through a lot in my life and I'm still standing.
I have self worth
It took a lot of soul searching to finally see for myself.
I am beautiful
I don't need anyone to tell me, I already know.
I am not perfect
Nobody's perfect but I've seen my good and bad sides.
I am just myself
I will never be alone, I will always be there for me.
We need to teach our daughters the difference between
A man who flatters her and a man who compliments her.
A man who spends money on her and a man who invests in her.
A man who views her as property and a man who views her properly.
A man who lusts after her and a man who loves her.
A man who believes he is God's gift to woman and a man
who remembers a woman was God's gift to man.
And then, teach our sons to be that kind of man.
|The Knots Prayer. |
Dear God: Please untie the knots that are in my mind,
my heart and my life. Remove the have nots, the can nots
and the do nots that I have in my mind. Erase the will nots,
may nots, might nots that may find a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots, would nots and should
nots that obstruct my life. And most of all, Dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind, my heart and my
life all of the 'am nots' that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought that I am not good enough.
