Slowing Down

It is official:  I have run out of steam.

This whole starting a school by myself business is taking it out of me and I am not sure how I can go on.

The Village School is certainly real: I can see it happening for our Bahamian children and families.  I just need some help, preferably in the form of another person who is willing to dedicate her life to this in the same way I have.

I simply cannot do this alone.

And so, I continue to sow the seeds one at a time whenever and wherever I can.  I must also take a moment to breathe.  As we say in The Bahamas - to catch myself.

Am I stopping?  No.  Just moving a little more slowly.

In the meantime, I hold the vision in my heart praying for help to come.


  1. Wow, just read this. Hope you find that right person to help you soon and get your second wind.
    Take care.

  2. Hey, I was just forwarding you an email and got your automated reply, so I decide to check out the website and see how things were going.
    I'm so sorry to see that you've been overwhelmed, but be encouraged. Has anything changed since your last post? The right person is out there already and you will find each other (hopefully very soon).
