First and foremost, let’s say a prayer in remembrance of 9/11, for Houston flood victims and for Miami.

Topic for Today: Finding your inner strength in the midst of chaos
Adversity builds strength and character. Who you really are as a person will reveal itself in the midst of chaos, tragedy and loss. The catastrophic hurricanes that have hit Houston and Miami have definitely tested the limits of everyone’s stress thresholds. It was a blessing to see so many coming together to help each other through the storms. It restored some of my faith in humanity.
So how do you find your inner strength in the midst of chaos? First, you must identify your touchstone and it must be worth fighting for at all costs. During the worst times of my life, it is my children who keep me fighting – in particular my son who never allows me to give up. If I see worry on his face about me, it gives me the swift kick in the ass I need to get myself in gear and keep forging ahead. Thank you Xavier Floyd for being your momma’s touchstone.
These storms are much like the storms we all go through in life. It is up to you to persevere.
Until next time, stay safe, love thy neighbor and never lose your inner strength.
