The Month of May…

…contains several events of great significance for ME.

Aside from the fact that it brings us our first Pre-Summer holiday, on which we get to celebrate outdoors with good food,  it is the birthday of my most loved musician, healer, performing artist and vessel of  harmony, love, truth  on this earth: STEVIE WONDER!  Everybody say YEAH!  *o* Believe it or not, this year “Little” Stevie Wonder is turning 60 years old!  Amazing! and WONDERFUL! 

Secondly, May is National Foster Care Month in the U.S. which brings attention to the status of the 500,000 children in our nation who are living without of a permanent family to call their own/to call them their own.  I’ve also dedicated this time to CELEBRATE the lives and achievements of many of these youth who continue to defy the odds of the negative circumstances, stereotypes, and predictions set against them, and those who care for them.  This annual event is called ” Foster Pride”  and this year will be held on Saturday, 5/22.  See the website of For A Child’s H.E.A.R.T., Inc. for more details.

And last but not least, May is National Mental Health Awareness Month.  As a mental health professional, I consider myself a “wounded healer” having  also faced the challenges of depression throughout my adulthood.  I have grave concern and compassion for the numerous people  whose symptoms of emotional and mental disorders often go  undiagnosed, misdiagnosed and treated- -many times in isolation and/or humiliation.  The current  status of our national economy has had and is having an even more profound impact on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health of our nation.  As a “village” we need to have a greater awareness, sensitivity to the issues our family, children and neighbors may face and how to respond to them in a positive and caring manner.

So…all that said, please stay tuned in to see what else I, and others may have to say on these topics; and please share your responses as well.

Hearts, Blessings and Wonder Love!  (:  ❤
