Did you know that if you die and have no resources, and no friends or family that pay for it, Tulsa County Social Services will see to it that you are buried or cremated?
I knew this but let me say…when it is a client that you adore (or even don’t) who is the one being buried or cremated by them, it’s sooooo hard. The difficulty isn’t not in what TCSS does, but in knowing that client truly had nothing and no one.
It’s never the material things that matter. We all experience loneliness at times. But…to think of being that alone in your is scary and sad.
It’s been so heavy on my heart, I think because I wonder if that person ever felt or knew that they mattered. I hope so.
I can’t really do anything to resolve this but love, love, and love some more.
Small things matter. Smiles matter. Eye contact matters. Hugs matter. Asking someone how they are and really listening to their heart…this matters.
Every person matters.❤️

I am a brave, worthy, loved by God, truly happy, whimsical, whole and surrendered woman basking in the warmth of God's sunshine....I am also an engaged and trusting Momma with the heart of a child! I am His child.
These truths remain yet I have to remind myself that THESE ARE MY TRUTHS and that means something entirely different to me than when I first was touched by these words.
Then, they were words and now, they have become words with life in them. Words I am doing my damndest to live out every day. I am now a single Momma, my Daddy has gone to Heaven and life looks different every day. None of my life's circumstances have changed the reality of who I am at my core and I think that's a really cool thing!
I am ecstatic to be writing again. I invite you to join me on this journey. I welcome feedback and conversational dialogue and I promise to be write straight from my heart because I that's the language I am most fluent in.
