Life is full of ups and downs and lately I have been hit hard with the downs.

I know I was having a pity party last week about no car and all the crap that I need to do to fix my house, but I'm dealing with real issues today. I'm not a materialistic person anyway, but there was some frustration on my part that came from not being able to get from point A to point B, but God has made sure that I'm back on track.

I picked up one of my adult children yesterday evening and stayed awake most of the night trying to find a treatment center that she could go to that didn't require 10, 000 up front. I understand now why it's difficult for the average person to get treatment.

Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours."

I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
