My Raisingurls…..Cree’s Blog

So,
I met with my Raisingurls on Sunday for dinner and a meeting. I had a lot of
thinking and praying to do about how I was going to go about my group. It was
kinda stressful in a way because I knew that having 15-20 gurls at one time was
going to be too much for one person. I would have to pick up at least 4 gurls at
different locations and when I would get back to my house, at least 10 would be
there waiting for me. I didn’t like that one bit. After the meeting I would have
to take those same gurls I picked up home, and then maybe 2-3 would need me to
drop them off. Thinking back on those days April-Nov, I wonder how I was doing
it all those months alone. LOL I wanted to do this so badly it was nothing
physically, but it was mentally. But this year…… I prayed on it, and I
thought about it a million times.  I decided that I wanted to take in 3-4 gurls.
And it was the best thing I could do.
I sent a letter to each of the gurls and their
parents and I told them that I would pick them up for dinner with a meeting on
Sunday June 26, all I ask is that they bring a pen. They did. Before we left one
of my gurls called me and told me about her friend who lives a few doors down,
and how she should be apart of the group, I told her that when I came to pick
her up to have her friend there so that I could meet her. When I first pulled up
to the house and laid eyes on her, I knew right off that she was the one. I am
so happy to be apart of her life, the things this young 16 year old is going
through is a movie, book and all of God. I’m just so happy right now. At dinner
we talked about everything!!!! LOL Gossip, boys, homelessness, God, FB and
building Character, how to keep your credit in good standing. We had a nice time
together.
The thing that I LOVE MOST is the fact that I can
give my ALL to my gurls. I can give them the one on one that they need. They
told me in the meeting that they’re happy that its only 3 of them, because when
it was a lot of them, they said they couldn’t talk to me like they wanted, and I
knew this, but………there was nothing I could do then.
So, check this out. Before we went to dinner I
took them to pick out some body sprays, because I’m ( true story) going to a
baby shower and instead of them buying something for the baby, I wanted them to
help me pick out 3 fragrances for the mother. I told them to chose the one that
they want buy. After wards we went to dinner, had our meeting and then I passed
out homework. I gave them 2 sheets from the bible about the story of Joseph.
They had 2 days to read it and when I got in touch with them on Tuesday they had
to answer all my questions about the story. I told them that the fragrances were
for them ( they were so happy. LOL LOL LOL), but they had to answer my questions
before they could get them. Tuesday came, and I got in touch with 2 of them and
hope to touch with one today. They answered all my questions and were very
interested in why his brothers did him that way.
What makes me smile and happy is the fact that I
can take them to the movies without asking 3-4 parents to help drive all 31
kids. We can have hotel parties, go bowling, out of town, I can afford dinner
for them all without having them to ask their parents. I’m happy that this is no
longer on my mind, it was really starting to get to me, after prayer and really
thinking about it, I KNOW this is what I’m suppose to be doing. I’m
happy.
