Compass, Changing Directions.
Updated: Nov 17, 2018
My youngest son, posed a question which changed my thinking or gave me the insight to redirect my blog.
With the strangest gaze in his eyes he asked, Mom what is your blog about?, one of my friends mom said, " Oh Alex your mom can really write, she then proceeded to explain to him how she had read some of my stuff and felt chills.

With that said I have decided to redirect my compass, not away from the broken spirited through love and trust, but to included a more deeper version of myself and those around me, I would like to ensure that each of us, regardless to how we got there, find our way back from Broken...……..
