i had a beautiful day. today is my mother's birthday. i spent the day with her and it was amazingly clear. a man sat at the table next to us and told me that he saw leadership and a big heart in me. this man was filled with the joy of God and it renewed me. i saw the light and beauty again from my mother because of how lucky i am that she is still here with me on this earth. and i watched the sunset which i haven't done in a very long time. hopefully things will change for the better and stay that way. love you. <3
