This warmed my heart, reminding me that there is still hope for the human race. The little boys are too adorable, sacrificing what would have given them momentary delight for a greater good just to give to a less privileged. I particularly love the little girl who decided to empower the ice cream seller and then feed the homeless man.
Otin uudelleen luettavaksi tämän kaapissa pölyttyneen vuorovaikutusterapian käsikirjan. Useat perheessämme asuneet sijoitetut lapset ovat opettaneet kuitenkin kirjojakin paremmin saman totuuden : lapsi tarvitsee korvaavia kokemuksia vuorovaikutuksessa turvallisen aikuisen kanssa, joka huomaa lapsen ainutlaatuisuuden, iloitsee siitä ja osoittaa hyväksyntää ja rakkautta mm. kosketuksen ja katseyhteyden kautta. Sanat eivät useinkaan yksin tavoita kiintymyyssuhteissaan vakavasti vaurioituneita lapsia.
Ihminen kasvaa ja kehittyy suhteessa toiseen. Jos nämä varhaiset ihmissuhteet ovat olleet vaikeita, tuhoavia tai ne ovat jopa puuttuneet, on lapsen kanssa rakennettava ikäänkuin alusta asti uudet rakentavat ja terveet vuorovaikutuksen kokemukset.💗 #theraplay#kiintymyssuhde#fostercare#perhehoito#loveheals#preciouschildhood#suojelelapsuutta#lastensuojelu#sijaisperhe

I posted this on October 1 but today is actually infant loss/miscarriage day so I thought I would repost.
The Lord has a beautiful way of taking our pain and what Satan meant to harm, crush or destroy us and use it to bring him glory, to bring others comfort and to heal our often broken hearts.
After 2 miscarriages in 4 months my heart was taped back together in a million pieces. When I found out I was pregnant a third time I was already expecting the worst. I had a hard time accepting I might be pregnant. I waited until 11 weeks so I knew if I really was, there would be no doubt I could hear a heartbeat. I cried at that appointment. She seemed so healthy. At 21 weeks when I saw my doctor again and heard the heartbeat on the Doppler my first words were ‘oh my gosh she still alive!’ I didn’t even realize how I was waiting for the bad news. It’s something no one prepares you for and it’s something that can’t be shaken until that baby is in your arms. The last week of pregnancy I grew in anxiousness actually thinking I was ready for her to be on the outside (partly because I couldn’t wait to meet her and partly because my body had previously failed to protect 2 babies from death...) When I held her in my arms for the first time, time truly did stand still.
I don’t know why he allowed us to go through two miscarriages or why Iris lived.
I do know even amidst the pain and suffering choosing love and choosing him has been the greatest choice I could make.
Friends who have and will experience this heartache, you are not alone. I stand with you. My heart aches with you. And I am always here for you.
Today on the day I am celebrating life, I also like to take this day to say thank you to all the people who have brought me the up most joy and love
I truly believe without the consistent love and support of my family and true friends I would not be the person that I am today. So although its my birthday, I want to take a moment to send my love and appreciation to the beautiful beautiful people in my life
This year has inevitably been the hardest year of my life where I had to really take a step back and reflect on things I’ve been suppressing for years. Through these hard times I am able to look back and value the people who have stood by me through it all. So thank you to my beautiful family and friends who have loved me unconditionally through this rollercoaster we call life. (side note Bianca deleted her instagram but this one goes out to her too).
We sing songed "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but Words will never hurt me" as children... But Words can and DO hurt. Today a 15 year old boy decided he couldn't take the hurtful words anymore and took his own life.
Please Pray for his Family and friends. For Grace, Mercy, and Love to abound.
See something, say something.

After his first dose of CBD.. 10mg, so not much! We ended up giving him 5mg more and he got a little tired so we'll find a happy medium there. His front legs work but he's been very tense and slow to release that tension.. but this time we had no issues!
We have to move his arms and legs in 3 sets of 25 repetitions each day in order to keep his muscles from weakening. Stay strong baby boy! 💪😚 www.gofundme.com/skye-needs-spinal-surgery

So much love and appreciation for everyone who has either donated, shared or sent positive vibes Skye's way. We've already raised $2,670 towards our $8,970 bill! We asked for more initally as the estimate's high end was $11,300, but it's something to note that his care will be pretty expensive.. potty pads or diapers, medicine, vet checkups, a set of wheels, and absolutely anything else that might help him heal and regain function in his hind legs 😍 Working or not, he'll still be our baby Skye.. #dog#dogs#gofundme#labrador#shepherdmix#love#positivity#goodvibrations#cbdoil#cbd#loveheals#dogparents#dogson#petrehabilitation#pettherapy#spinalsurgery
Skye loves frozen blueberries 😍
We bought him a nice CBD oil and tried it out a couple hours ago. 15mg or 1 1/2 droppers later (~45 drops) his shaking stopped, his breathing slowed to normal, his front arm tension mostly went away, and he took a good nap!
I love seeing him calm.. He even released his bladder and let it all out while he was sleeping 🤣 This is new since the CBD.. We're curious to see if his body shaking was partially a result of his tensing up when he needed to pee.. We figured out yesterday that he wasn't relaxing, probably because he's such a good boy and doesn't want to pee in the house (the doctors said that might happen). Not to mentiom that Tramadol can cause tremors.. we'll see if we still need to use it or if the CBD will take care of his pain!
Check my Bio page if you'd like to see his Go Fund Me campaign. If you've donated or sent some positive vibes his way then we appreciate you so much 😊
For those who haven't seen his story yet, Skye suddenly developed a condition known as Myelomalacia as a result of a slipped disk in his spine. We think his slipped disk occurred when he was jumping into the car and he fell to the right between the middle and passenger seats. Within hours he started limping. By the morning (4am) he could barely walk. By 7am he could no longer stand--his back legs were mostly lame.. We thought he might've hurt both legs or something, being that he's almost 9 years old, so we left him in the care of family and went to work.
By 3pm when we arrived back home, all Skye could do was lift his head. He was so tense that his front legs were stiff and unmoveable. They still worked, but he must have been in a lot of pain, causing him to tense up.. we took him to a vet and then emergency vet who suggested immediate surgery in order to halt the hemorrhaging that was leaking blood into his spinal cord; basically fluid was flowing where it shouldn't be, perhaps pressing on and disrupting the nerves controlling the back half of his body.
The doctors aren't sure if he'll walk again, but they said there is a chance. The only reality in our minds is one where his body heals and he walks again ❤
Love and thanks to you all!
Cats and mats and mats and cats.
Who cares if you're not doing Downward Dog correctly when you have this much cat on your mat??? ❤❤❤ Thank you @mewsickittycafe and @Do615 for the free Cat Yoga class as part of Dejan's prize for winning your International Cat Day Contest!! So much Purrvana! ❤.
Today, some love came in the mail. #loveheals Ironically, I didn't find out about @thistlefarms when I attended Vanderbilt in Nashville. Instead, I bought body butter at @fairtradewinds in Stony Brook, NY to savor on a personal retreat toward the end of my Ph.D. Now, I am frequently inspired by founder @beccastevens ' writing, moved by this model of healing within community, and kept healthier through using a couple of products.

Exeter Hospital, I go each day
I say a prayer all the way
That the radiation, I'm going to receive
Is accepted from me, with love and ease
I get so frightened, laying there
My body exposed and feeling bare
I'm in position and ready to go
Then everyone leaves, and I'm all on show
My arms up high, and my fab tits out
I have to stay still, but I want to shout
The lights go out and the machine starts to sing
Its own little dance, as it does it's thing
Tears appear and roll down my face
Filling my ears, as my head stays in place
I imagine the rays that I can't see
Are full of love, and all things healthy
I trust that it is giving me healing
And inside my body, I will be gleaming
All cancer gone, my body is fit
Will be worth it all, to save my tit
Being fit and healthy is my intention
So I must trust, in this invention
So invisible are it's rays.............
But so is love, in many ways. ♥️ Vivid Rebel
I love the instances that remind me of the life-changing decision I made to respond to a southern Georgia boy who would sweep me off my feet, change my last name and my life’s trajectory. I love my husband and am so grateful for him. And I’m so grateful to God for leading me to him. #lovemyhusband#loveheals
According to braintest.com it is estimated that 1 out of every 6 women & 1 out of every 10 men living past the age of 55 will develop dementia. Around 70% are due to Alzheimer's. The 2nd most common type is Vascular (stroke) dementia. Do you have a loved one living with dementia or know someone who does? #Loveheals#Understandingdementia#Caregiversgive#Hope#Inmemoryofmydad#RIPrev

What’s on your plate? I fucking love food ok? But as I’m maturing I realize that I wasn’t introduced to HALF of the amazing foods of this world as a kid. There are so many things we haven’t had, I wonder why so many of us remain so limited to what we eat. Since I’ve decided to give up meat (land animals and birds- I still eat seafood)I’ve been able to explore a plethora of food items I probably wouldn’t have dared to try prior to making that decision. Although my reasons for not eating meat may differ from others, my love for food still remains. I’ve just been able to train my body to crave the good shit now. The excitement when I go through the produce section now a Days is unbelievable lol. Fruits and veggies are must haves! Sugars are scarce in my household, even my son will come and ask for something healthy before he asks for a honey bun or something similar. I actually don’t even purchase those sugar based products and bring them into my home. I can’t lie tho, when I get high, the sugar cravings are vicious lmao. Which is partly the reason I don’t smoke as much as I used to. Ultimately it feels good to still have the intimate relationship with food, but knowing that 9/10 what I’m eating is BENEFICIAL to my temple and not detrimental. This journey has NOT been easy and sometimes I wish I had just enough money for a personal chef bc figuring out what I’m going to eat everyday is quite frankly irritating as fuck. Nonetheless, I’m proud of myself AND my son bc he’s pescatarian as well so having his support is comforting. Treat yourself to something good today. Whatever good may mean to you 😋 #LoveHealsAll#AmberLoveHeals#loveheals#amberlove#thelovedoctor#iam#eatingclean#vegetarian#vegan#foodlover#pescatarianlife#lifestylechange#youarewhatyoueat#chicfila#specialchicken#nomoremeat#yourbodyisatemple#eattolive#whatsonyourplate#thankful#gluttony#greed#mealprep#personalchef#mustbenice
Love heals... Broken hearts, crying eyes, lonely souls,
Fear not this languid moment of disappointment. As you heal and balance and nurture your heart with self love you give others permission to do the same. ♥️ It’s not love that hurts you. It’s the void you are requiring others to fill for you. It’s no ones responsibility to make you feel whole. It’s begins and ends with you and all the love within you.
Love is the most powerful force because we are love. We come Into this lifetime as love and leave as love. It’s all that matters. Intentionally expand your heart and let your bright light shine and radiate love throughout every cell and into the world.
You attract what you are. You are love. Just be you ♥️🙏 #loveiseverything#beautifulyou#fearnot#loveheals
