So here we are at the close of another year with all the joy of the holidays to remind us of the bond of family and the love that helps us all in so many ways. For me the holidays out on the streets were very difficult because on the streets it’s just all about survival, that is it. Friendships were based on nothing but give and take principals. It has taken me a while to learn that my definition now of friendship is a bond not only of a give and take but of a trust earned along with unconditional respect and empathy for each others experiences.
This year I am grateful for the love I have from family and I am grateful that my choices now promote goodness and well-being for not only myself but others in my life. Soon I hope that all is well when I go in front of the Parole Board for an early release. I tell myself not to put too much on my expectations, all will happen in God’s time and with God’s will. So be it!!
I would like to send my respect and love to everyone and wishes for a Happy, Safe and very Merry Holiday season!!!
