When I think of the present, I think of the here and now.

The time in which I am in, the moment I must embrace.

The past is behind me, allowing me to look back, learn from the things of yesterday to plan for the future.

The future is ahead, it is in the very next breathe I take.

Whether they are plans of tomorrow or a business that is to come. I strive to maximize this present moment, living it to the fullest you know.





Our Children

Tick, Tock…. How timely!

If not now, then when?

When will the investments be made in our School Systems to address the lack of funding, training, and time not given to students with Special Needs.

Gifts to the world, many times misunderstood in our School Systems.

What is that noise they say, “Why are you screaming, crying, biting…” They are only trying to communicate their needs.

The look in their eyes scream, you don’t understand my spectrum, of how I see and feel things. Many times people look at them and shake their heads.

Socially, Emotionally they need our help to learn routine and have some fun.

It is vital that not only the teachers receive the Social-Emotional and Behavior Training but th

Administration and Instructional Support Staff too! This will have a direct effect on students academic success and well being.

The time is NOW, let’s begin again. There is no need for cutbacks, but a time to pour in.

By Y. Sherman




There is no other place, I would rather be, but in your presence Lord…

Resting, waiting, resting in you Lord…

Praying, trusting, resting in you Lord…




Refocus…Slow Down

Like A caterpillar we often are busy eating, working, moving about enjoy life.

Living a carefree life in the sun.

Moving along from branch to leaf, leaf to branch.

Doing what we do as we live this carefree life.

Slide in, Slide out, doing our thing, not wanting to stop.

Suddenly Getting biGGEr on the things around us, biGGER and BIGGER…metamorphosis has begin to set in.

Waiting, waiting waiting….

No movement, paralysis has set in. A coating, a shield of protection today.

It is now a time of rest… it is process.

A time to take care of oneself.

A time to tune in, no more distractions or interruptions. Securely fastened.

A time to tap in…

Knock, Knock, who’s there?

Good, no answer. You are plugged in. Resting, not pressing.

You are no longer just doing, to stay busy, but take the time out, refuel and live again.

Be renewed in your mind with the washing of the word, as you mediate both day and night.

My life is in your hand. Surrender All!
