Our next stop was Coast General Provincial Hospital where we donated sanitary towels to the maternity patients. This is the season to give so do reach out, with whatever you have, whenever you can.
Meet Rut. Rut and her coworker Rosa are part of Textil Flor de Perícon, a women’s weaving cooperative in San Juan, on Lago Atítlan here in Guatemala. Being part of the cooperative is the only way to be ensured fair wages for their work, which they need to raise their children after their spouses left them. The spinning of the cotton, making their own dye from plant material, dyeing the cotton, and the weaving is all done by hand. The ladies were tickled to show us how it all worked, and to get the word out about their cooperative. Thanks for the fun photoshoot, and all the best to you both😌 #womenempowerment#womensupportingwomen#womeninbusiness#fairtrade
Constantly looking & living in the past will never give you the ability to embrace the progress and the present. -
Instead, shift your focus on how far you’ve come and the lessons that were learned!
Remember: Never keep putting the past on replay! It’s over! It’s history! No matter how much you look back, you cannot change what has happened!
Stop living it and just learn from it!
🌟SO EXCITED 🌟

What’s your most unforgettable holiday memory?
My mother represents almost all of my favorite Christmas memories. She really enjoyed the holiday.
She's been gone now for 16 years and in many regards it feels like yesterday that she was with us.
She was the best grandparent that my kids had and it seemed so cruel for her to be taken away.
This is a picture with my oldest daughter. They had so much joy in spending time together.
My mom was my first and greatest mentor. She was an excellent parent and taught me most of what I know which humbly is a lot.
I could be blue during the holidays because of the great loss and truthfully there is an ache because I miss her so. But instead I choose to focus on incredibly grateful I am to have had such an amazing role model in my life for parenting excellence (and so much more). And I know that her legacy lives on in me and in my daughters.
In fact, my little one's enthusiastic Christmas spriit confirms that she is here with us even now.
Who are you missing this holiday season and what could you focus on instead of the loss? Was there a funny memory? A poignant memory? Let me know and shake off the blues.
YES, yes you are!
Today's the perfect day to practice patience with yourself.
You ARE a masterpiece💫
Take all the time you need... ❤️👣🎨👣❤️
Day by day my abuser started mistreating me more
He just made me feel like I was just an object to whom he can do anything he want to do
But my inner self just didn't let me settle for it
I stopped him one day ,enough is enough.
You can't do this anymore i'll never let you think that abusing a girl is normal.
He just threatened me to kill me
I just made it possible to run away and saved my life from that inhuman
I fought i survived
Yes he choose me but he choose a wrong girl, a girl who just didn't let him to destroy her , and it was the most righteous thing I've ever did.
For all the fellow girls who are also victim of this disease , i just want to tell you , there are no super heroes who will save you,there is a superhero in you yes in you,you can save yourself so don't let that thing happen with you at any cost !
