The word Perplexed is defined in the dictionary as, completely baffled; very puzzled. That is what I am feeling today! When I started this blog my intention for it was to be uplifting, entertaining, thought provoking and at times a very personal dialogue about me and my life! I wanted to express to those who read this blog that you are not alone and maybe the things I am thinking about, you may be thinking the same thing! I never intended this blog to be political in any way, shape or form, until today!
Today I am Perplexed on how the Supreme Court overturned a law of the land on the rights for women to seek professional medical treatment in regards to reproductive health! Please note that I am not a scholar or a lawyer! You don't need to be a scholar or lawyer to understand what happened this past week! I am the mother of four children and it was and has always been my choice to bring my children into this world and provide for them! The key words here are MY CHOICE! My husband and I were blessed that we could provide for our children, not everyone can!
I live my life to the best of my abilities and within my means. I do my best to make good decisions for myself and my family. I try to think of others needs and give back to my community as best as I can. I try to continue to have great Faith in humanity and at the same time have great Forgiveness in humanity at the same time! At the end of the day, how I act, what I do, what I say and what happens in my four walls is between me and my God! No one else should shame me, ridicule me or make decisions for me. It's MY CHOICE!
As we begin a new week, I hope that life won't be quite so heavy this week. I hope that we the people can find that we have more things in common then not. I hope The United States of America will become a safer place to live, to continue to
love whomever you want and what happens in your four walls continues to be between you and your God! Final thought, if the Supreme Court can reverse this law of the land, what will be the next one?
