A Letter From Deanna

When I came to BLOOMHERE, I had relapsed, and I was grieving the deaths of multiple family members. I had nothing to lose, but everything to gain. BLOOMHERE poured faith, hope, and love into me. With a lot of prayers, I have started learning to love myself again. Today I have 16 months clean and I am one of the top students in my GED class. Working on healthy relationships is a daily struggle, but I never give up, because I remember that when prayers go up, blessings come down. Sometimes God takes you back to where you've been, so you know where you need to go.️

Many of our community members have marked the beginning of Lent, the 40 days leading up to Easter. Reflecting on the words of Jesus, a few friends shared this lesson with us recently, and we think it's a good rule of life.

It also reminds of the beauty of divine reversal: God and the Divine enter our lives by surprising us - shining light in the darkness, turning power on its head, and breathing life into the cold void. We certainly have stories like that, and you might also.

Lent is traditionally a time for "giving something up" (like meat on Fridays) in an effort to focus on our spirituality, but it can also be a time of adding something new to your life, like a new spiritual practice or way of seeing the world. How does this rule of life guide you? Your answer may be different every day.

Humility requires:
- listening to others and sharing resources
- prioritizing community over authority
- serving rather than being served

If you know Robin Donta, you know what it's like to have a ray of sunshine in your life. 🌞 Robin is kind, encouraging, loving, and so much more. She stood side by side with our founder Melinda Taylor to open the BLOOMHERE home in 2019, and we're grateful for her every single day as she continues to mentor and care for the Bloomies.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBIN!

Sometimes all the pieces just fall into place. Our @meredithcollege intern Barbara had planned a vision board activity that happened to fall on what would become our new Bloomie's first community meeting in her new home. We dug into our art supplies to celebrate our hopes and dreams with magazine cut outs, stickers, and our own drawings. Look at those beautiful designs!
