DETAILS ABOUT THE JOURNEY
Why is the topic so important?
What we do in our everyday experiences brings about important life lessons. We’re living inside the topic each day we inhale anew breathe. In These days and times, toxicity has settled in the environment. Just think about it: every day we wake up we’re on the battlefield fighting a war. And just feeling where there’s: good against evil; sons against fathers; daughters against mothers; nations against nations; drugs against diseases; and the list goes on and on.

Over three decades, Norstrom has unmasked the levels of relationships:
pain; abuse; emotions, diseases; work environments; trauma;
and its poison of unforgiveness. In the artistic world, it is those literary creations that demonstrate a measure of personal growth that magnifies those hurdles conquered - from darkness to survival, even her release from incarceration.
While growing and blossoming, she has maintained a healthier lifestyle . . . staying free of unhealthy relationships. Through her experiences, Norstrom has encountered a complete metamorphosis ─ releasing one identity for another. Living inside this transitional lifestyle she states, “I see myself as that long-blooming, rich flower waiting to attract those butterflies. It is there, I’ve come full circle having realized the dangerous effects of toxicity."
Parenthood can be such a wonderful and amazing experience. When growing up, one just doesn’t think about the task of taking on a parent ship role. #Parents are expected to be responsible and accountable, as we teach our children the many lessons life will bring. Our children are gifts from our Father above. HE even sends us these gifts without a name. So we have to name them, raise them, love and nurture them till they too find their way to adulthood.
Yeah, there's joy in being a parent, whether acting as a mother or father. Life is just so full of wonders!

Not a Blueprint: It's the Shoe Prints That Matter
As a mother, I didn’t have much to provide. Yet, I gave her that which was given to me: love, joy, happiness, and pain. We struggled endlessly to stay above the water. The journey we traveled took us across rough roads, around in circles, up steep hills, down deep valleys, and through high mountain chains. And with her strapped over my shoulders, I’d thought she’d be mine . . . Maybe it was a fantasy. Had I known this dream would be . . .
