Let me tell you one truth with three words:
YOU. ARE LOVED.
...

FOUR MONTHS!!!!

Last time I dyed my hair was back on December 30th 2020. Go to my stories and take a closer look to see how much this crazy new silver hair of mine has grown.

I’m doing it... Thank you to all of my #silversisters for the inspiration! 🤍🖤

I imagine God thirteen years ago seeing my life today and knowing that the baby girl I was giving birth will be the reason for me to wake up every morning and find the strength to press forward every day.

Give birth in Spanish is “dar a luz,” the exact word by word translation is “to give light.”

I’m so grateful God knew back then that I would need her light during the most cloudy days of my life.

I’m so grateful for our four children and the source of hope they are to me!

YESTERDAY AT WORK:

COWORKER: Desi, why are you so happy?

ME: Because your sunshine is reflecting on my face.

COWORKER: That’s the coolest compliment anyone has ever given me! (Huge smile)

ME: Then my friend, keep shining!

COWORKER: You bet! (Bigger smile)

SELF NOTE: The best way to share light is to recognize the light around you!

Thank you so much to my girl Lara @morefrosting for creating this beautiful poster inspired by yesterday’s post... I LOVE YOU FRIEND!

Thank you all for your comments, light and prayers especially during these last four months... Feeling the LOVE!

HEY YOU!
I want to send a big HELLO 👋🏻 to all of you that hang out with me here every week and introduce myself and give a special welcome to YOU, that have just joined us! 🙏🏻

I am Desirée.
I am a mama of four INCREDIBLE humans.
I am a Spaniard that has lived in the USA for over 23 years.
I am 45 years old.
I am a daughter of God, and I love Him so much!
I also love big earrings...
(Wait, but you are too old to wear big earrings.)

Umm, I’m letting my silver grow...
(Wait, why? You are too young to let your gray show!)

I am starting a new professional adventure...
(Wait, that’s way too risky at your age, don’t you think you are too old to start over?)

I live with my daughters...
(Wait, you don’t have a husband? You are too young to be alone, you should find someone.)

I...
(Wait, before you say anything else, let me tell you who you are, what you should wear, what you should be doing, and who you should share your life with.)

CONFESSION:
For the longest time, (during all my years), I had a big addiction: I wanted to be LIKED by everyone around me - I tried to listen to all the voices and please them all, and the inevitable happened, I failed at it... BIG TIME!

I’m learning that I’m not the only one with this little problem! - Are you there? Too many voices? Too many wants?

Sometimes we are so preoccupied with having APPROVAL and FIT IN that we lose complete sense of who we are. When this happens, we become scared and insecure even though we look confident. We become weak and lost, even though we look strong and put together. We become angry and lonely, even though we look happy and social.

As we tried to be LIKED, we forget WE ARE LOVED!

WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD!
Because WE are HIS...
WE DON’T HAVE AN EXPIRATION DATE TO BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF OURSELVES.
WE ARE FULL OF BEAUTY AND LIGHT.
WE ARE HIS MOST PRECIOUS CREATION.
WE ARE IMPERFECT HUMANS LOVED PERFECTLY BY A CELESTIAL FATHER.
WE. ARE. LOVED!

I’m so HAPPY that there is no such thing as “too old” or “too young”, “too early” or “too late” for Him that knows us all!

❤️

I like big GLASSES and I cannot lie! ...
