For those that know me well, they know that serving is one of the things that capture me most. And this year, for my birthday, I want those who want to celebrate me, to celebrate it a little differently. I don't need a birthday party. We can do that on any day. You all know how much I like to eat! And Dominican Cake comes in handy on ANY DAY! But what I truly want is to be celebrated by family, friends and followers joining me to help others. To see smiles on people's faces by being the hands and feet of Jesus with you all is a GIFT in and of itself. Whatever money you'd want to spend extra, donate it to a cause that matters!
You see, when I was healed miraculously from Leukemia at the age of 15, I was left with the scars. The scars that reminded me of the pain, of the biopsies, of the medications, of the hovering fear that I'd die because my aunt had died from the same disease years before. Every scar told a story of unconceivable anger because I didn't understand why I'd go through this. I hadn't done anything wrong, so it felt so unfair. I feared that if I ever opened up or tried to bring hope to someone else, the cancer would return and I would be ridiculed as a result. So I did what most of us do at first, cover them up. I invested time and money on finding the perfect cover up make up so that I can mask the story, I mean, scars beneath. I didn't see the glory of it all.
