“Love always hopes, always perseveres…”

I am beginning this post with a link to Sade’s song, “It’s Only Love That Gets You Through.” Take a moment of your day to listen to the beautiful, moving lyrics. I dedicate this song to my fellow human beings that have been through or are going through trying times. Love will get you through.

I guess you could say I awakened with love this morning. The words “love always hopes; love always perseveres,” repeated in my mind as I got ready to attend the Healthy Schools Day and the Oahu Farm to School network meeting at the Hawaii State Capitol. I chose to remain open to the possibilities of the day and I’m am glad I made it out there. There are some really great things happening in the schools and throughout the island. I also had some fun taking silly pictures dressed up as some of my favorite vegetables. And, I made connections with visionary, hard-working individuals-oh, yes remember that. It’s called networking. 🙂


In the afternoon, I Skyped with my family in New York. In the evening, after prayer and meditation service at Unity, I met a group of fabulous ladies who invited me join them for an evening of live Blues music. I never imagined celebrating my two month arrival date this way, but it was great!

I would like to close this post with heartfelt gratitude for the people in my life that support and encourage me. Love and blessings to you all.


About Magaly L.

Five Facts About Me: 1. I was born in El Salvador, grew up in NY, and after being in the United States for almost 33 years, I finally became a citizen in 2013. I was super excited when I voted for the first time! 2. My personal favorites: chocolate, desserts, dancing, the beach, leisure travel, reading, juicing, gardening, cooking, spending time with family, and writing. I really do love chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate, but any chocolate is better than none. I also love red velvet cupcakes from my favorite bakery in NYC, Two Little Red Hens on the Upper East Side. And I love spending time in nature. There's something so peaceful about listening to the birds or listening to the waves break, that centers me in the present moment and reminds me that Divine order is at work in my life. 3. I come from a large family and I love it! My parents, two brothers, one sister, LOTS of cousins, aunts, uncles, abuelos, and my "gotitas de amor"-my nieces and nephews. 4. I am an educator both by training and at heart. 5. I have been living with PNES (psychogenic non-epileptic seizures) since 2007. Though this condition has been life-altering and challenging to live with at times, it has also led me to a more fulfilling life, strengthening my faith and helping me have the courage to pursue my passions and chase a couple of dreams.
