my sunflowers

When I create, I’m not doing it for me. I create for these five beautiful children in my life who have been sent to bless me and call me their auntie. I create for the future children who will bless me and call me mommy. When the time comes to grow beyond this place, I…

summer daze

Surrounded. Surrounded by fields of green and yellow. Sun kisses planted on every inch of my face. The sweet sounds of songbirds singing away. Beautifully scented sunflowers surround me all day long. These feelings. They make me as though I’m floating on a cloud while I’m still planted here on this earth. ©️ 2020, Leigh…

innocence

The children have eyes too. Though you may think they didn’t see what you did. The children have ears too. You thought they didn’t hear those harsh words escape from your lips. I know you may think they don’t know what to believe. That their innocence will protect them for as long as you please….

I can’t say that I feel relieved after crying. If anything, I feel even more sad than I did before. Somehow, I’ve found myself ignoring…

friendly reminders

Patience is key. A simple act of kindness could go a long way and possibly make someone’s day. Goodnight, beautiful people. Leigh 🌻

thursday (skating update)

Hello, lovely people. How was your day? I hope it was a great day for you guys. My day was filled with different emotions as I spent most of it practicing my skating and failing. I realized that my knee pads were too tight and prevented me from moving around. I decided to take them…

a simple reminder

Keep dreaming and never stop. Hold on to that spark, that bright light that made itself visible to you. You are one of a kind. It’s time you stop telling yourself that you aren’t.
