sashacheeks This is a picture of the Woman I never got to meet but always dreamt I knew. One of the only pictures we had ever got to see of the Woman who started it all, and whatever All was, we never knew.
Her name was Judy. And she was my dad's Mother.
Growing up the only thing I ever knew about my grandma was that she was the Woman who left my father squatting in an abandoned apartment at the age of 4 with his baby sister. A homeless schizophrenic prostitute in Hollywood that lost herself in Love and Lonlieness while chasing her dreams of drug addiction.
My dad's story is one of heart break and unbelievable triumph, and probably the reason I connect, Love and cherish my relationship with Him and everything around me.
In the past 10 years my dad has come to find, or been saught out by other sibblings he never knew he had. He is the oldest of a clan of 6 that never got the chance to know each other until an even stranger series of events allowed them to finally meet.
I share blood with 3 Hispanic Uncle's, 1 African American Aunt, and another Woman that shares the same Father as my dad that we have and most likely will never known anything about.

She died in 2004, while asleep on a sidewalk in Hollywood, she was hit and run by a drunk driver and left like she was something to never to be remembered again...
But I will always remember her. I will always connect to her story, and I will always want to reach out to every person I see and feel because of who she was.
She is my reason for believing in The Human Connection.

This weekend has been a very emotional weekend for me. I got to visit and meet 2 of my Uncles that I never knew about until recently, and our bond feels so strong.
There are little bits of us all over the country because of this extraordinary woman who will never get the chance to tell us her story... But her legacy has planted the seed in me and the desire to get out and explore the world just to hear, feel and Love on all of the people I meet, and why I am an advocate for taking pride in the darkness of your past and believe in the amazing healing properties that come in accepting and sharing your incredible story...

  •   sashacheeks We truly are all connected... I believe that on a grand scale that is sometimes hard to fathom.... But believe still exists.
    My Love for every one of You exists. Even if we can't always see it... I sure hope you can feel it.
    I am figuring out my souls purpose in this lifetime a little bit more every day, and am thankful for this weekend to help catapult me in that direction.

    Your story is so Beautiful... Will you share It?

sashacheeks Sometimes in all my selfishness, I forget how truly blessed I am.
I am not sure if it is the Woman in me, or just the Me in me that makes me forget.. But here I am, humbled yet again by nature's beauty.

The couple that I live with teaches me a little bit more about life every day. Shows me what Love is, if even in the tiniest gestures to them, they speak volumes to me.
In the last month I've got to come home from work to a raging fire left just for me to sit with and reflect on life.
It is a sanctuary out here... More so than any I have ever been in before. Built by hand, and filled with the most amazing Energy - A power that is truely outside of myself.

Thank you, Universal Energies.
Thank you, Fate. Thank you Love.... In all the shapes and forms that you come in. I'm sorry that I don't recognize you all the time, but a slap in the face by this Heat Hug is enough to remind me to tell you that you are so far beyond appreciated in my life.
Thank You.... With a heart emoji.
