Ripples on the pond

Posted by jazminprice on December 6, 2010 at 5:24 PM

The year is coming to a close and I know for many of us thishas been a busy year. It seems to have flown by in a whirlwind and at times Ifelt as if I was holding on to the tornado’s tail just trying to not lose mygrip. There were other times though… that I felt as if I was at the exact rightplace and the exact right time and I was able to watch pieces fall where theyfit.

One such fit is coming to work in my own community. Italmost seems foreign to me to be working in the southern part of the state. Attimes I feel I know Birmingham better than Dothan and Montgomery… This year Iresolve to become more involved in my local communities. I want to touch thelives of women living beside me…

I reflect on Gandhi and ask myself “am I being part of thesolution?” Am I living with a sense of community, my ripples touch your ripplesor am I isolated pretending I am in a pond by myself?

I am on the journey to find more ways to touch lives… moreways to help mothers and women… I will keep in my forethought my connections tothe women of the past; the roots that hold me to the Earth. I will dream of my connections to the women of the future; they pull my branches to touch thestars. And I will embrace my connections to the women around me; they shade me and nourish me.
