October 30th I underwent ACL & meniscus reconstructive surgery. In the days and weeks and months following, I've learned more deeply about the power of relationships in my life. On days that were really rough and I was in a ton of pain, I learned I had community. People who sat with me and saw me. On the days I was discouraged and tired, I learned I had deep support. People who texted me to check in and send funny GIFs and make me laugh. Over weeks of getting to know my body and mind and heart, I learned I had inner strength and joy beyond expectation to face each new day. I learned this through real relationships with real people in my life that really showed up. I was empowered. That's why I've chosen FAM Houston as my Reason2Race. FAM Houston builds empowered community with refugees, immigrants, and local Houstonians. FAM teaches real people how to build real relationships with neighbors creating real change and empowerment. I see it in the lives of Congolese refugee women that FAM Houston touches; I see it in my own life. Real empowerment to dig deep discovering courage and the joy of belonging in community. Help multiply FAM Houston's impact by giving to my 5K fundraiser - let's hit this $2,500 goal!
