Retreat reflection

In a representation of what I did at the retreat, I made 3 different kinds of shapes. I made it
to represent that it’s okay to be different from others. The testimony that was said at the retreat made me really think about college and the type of decisions I make.
One of the activities we did was to do with buying stuffs like paper, pencils and tape.
We didn’t know what we were gonna do with what we bought so it kind of made it hard.
Once we purchased our stuffs, we were told to build a house using what we bought.
It was difficult because we did not know how to make one using what we purchase, however, we made
a house. It was not strong because the structure was poorly made.
It was not stable and we didn’t have enough materials to build a roof.
This taught us that the choices we make now, even if they are small. Can affect us in the future.

Mothers day

From all the stress, worries and trouble I put you through to all the laughs,
smiles and happy hours we have together. I appreciate all the things you
do for me, even the little things. Like drying my clothes, trying to put me
in the best colleges, for never giving up on me when I did and for providing
all the best for me and our family. I appreciate all the extra hours you work
just to get money to pay the bills so there's a roof over my head, to pay for
food so I don't get hungry, to pay for school/education so I don't end up like
my brothers. Thank you for all the knowledge you’ve given me throughout
these 13 years of life. I know it’s hard to be a mother especially with a hectic
family like ours, but you never give up on all of us. Thank you for always
waking me up at 6 in the morning and saying that it's 7. I know that you
always try to make me happy when I’m sad and I thank you for that. Have
a great mothers day on Sunday. I love you x.
