I’ve taken measures to remove Toxic people and Naysayers from my Life. I’ve formed a New Family since the one I was born into abandoned me. Yes this is my Thorn in the Flesh and I Own it. Some battles I win. Some I lose. But throughout my life I remain me. Not ashamed of who I am or how I go about living my life. Only those going through the Fire truly understand.

And, I’m now convinced my husband’s side of the family…

      Shinnyo-en is a Buddhist Temple not a store and for your own safety I would advise you not to include your personal information in Comments, Emails or Messages. Your personal information can be stolen and used in Identity Theft. After all you don’t know me personally. How do you know I’m not a thief?! Just a Word to the Wise.
