Life has been exhilarating, challenging, loving, fun, laughable, pain, joy, laughter, tears…..I am and have been always where I was supposed to be, right at the right time, in God’s time, not my own. I struggle and challenge the reins, but it always comes, but in due time……Patience is truly a virtue.

Where am I going?….Don’t know exactly, however enjoying the journey.

Today I visited a place called Corazon in South Chicago. It is a place for educating women and children, immigrants who speak very little English and have little money or personel resources to gain this education In this area¬† there is needm for help with money, time, and volunteers to assist as much as possible. It is sponsored by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in the Midwest-Atlantic Province……Driving through areas boarded up, torn down or burned down is very eye-opening to the poor in our own

In response to a shifting ministerial presence for the School Sisters of Notre Dame community, Corazon a Corazon was founded to serve the south side of Chicago. Begun in 2002 on 95th and Commercial offering ESL, After School (2003) and Summer programs addressing the need of elementary levels to adults. In 2008 Corazon moved to its present location to expand the program to the residents in the area.

Corazon a Corazon under the sponsorship of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, serves as a catalyst for fundamental change in the community by providing individualized educational services to women and children at risk.

I have a few friends that are on that same wavelength. It is really getting to me that this is the way to go to clear out all the bags I carry and live in the present, enjoy what life offers. Less Is More is beginning to be my mantra, as I see that it is not such abad thing anymore. I don’t have to live my life afraid of meeting standards that are hard to keep, much less the way to go.
