Have you had a friend that you've shared your dreams and goals with to find out that they've been slowly working on stealing it? Furthermore, they're using your last name? How can you feel good about representing yourself under my name?  In my eyes it's fraud.

I can't go into great detail, but I came across something that was created using my name without my permission. Sadly it was done by someone that I thought I knew well - someone that I trusted, a friend. I guess it shows a persons character when their business is based on a lie. Obviously they have something in their past if they need to steal someones name ... eventually mine would be tarnished as well.

Initially I left my happy place for a brief moment. I wanted to call this person out publicly on every social site that I could think of,  but I chose not to because at the end of the day God knows what this person has done, and He knows what I do. I chose not to stumble. Someday the truth will come out - it always does.

What happened to trust and loyalty?

I want to be able to trust the person that I'm speaking to, especially if you claim to be my friend. I don't take friendships lightly - I'm a great friend, but I don't go backwards in my relationships. The trust has been broken, character has been tarnished, and the friendship has changed. It's disappointing, but that's life, and in life people will sometimes disappoint you. It doesn't mean that I should never trust again, or that I shouldn't share my life with the people in my circle. It just means that I need to be more cautious next time.

Peace, Love, & Hugs!

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…
