Buenos dias! (Good morning)
My name is Divina Grey. I am currently enrolled in the Medical Assisting Program at my University, and I am so grateful it makes me want to cry. I believe I was put on this earth to be a mother in my heart of hearts, to be exactly where I am right now, and to help people. I am a mother of two beautiful babies; okay, my son is eleven, and my daughter is eight, but my babies they will always be. When I’m not dancing to "Ice, Ice, Baby" with my kids, I love writing, singing and playing the guitar, Crossfitting, and drinking the frothiest coffee I can my hands on. I am also slowly (but surely) teaching myself Spanish. One more glimpse into my life, before I get to why I’d rather be the sandcastle than the wave, is I have the sweetest little cat with one eye. Or, mi gato tiene un ojo.

After reading the prompt above, my knee-jerk reaction was to tell everyone that I, one-hundred percent, wanted to be the wave. The freedom I felt in my bones when I imagined not only flowing with the ups and downs but embodying the ebb and flow of life was fantastic! I slept on that thought, and in the morning, this is what I concluded: choosing to be the sandcastle gave me the best of both worlds. Castles made of sand…
