“Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
Martin Luther King
On Sunday, May 22, 2016 I woke up at 4:00 AM to head to Mexico with a group of extraordinary volunteers to be of service at Rancho de Los Ninos, an orphanage for children in Mexico. We headed to Mexico with trunks full of presents for the children. Everything from clothing, blankets, body wash, shampoos, cleaning supplies, puzzles, coloring books and jenga (which was a big hit).
We arrived at Rancho de Los Ninos and the children ran up to us with hugs and kisses and excited for the gifts and love we were bringing.
We played ball, played JENGA, colored and had beautiful conversations and laughs together. The amount of love I felt warmed my heart and I truly feel I came back a better person.
The hat says it all: LIFE IS GOOD, especially when you are being of service and bringing joy to children!
Adios Amigos. Miss you already and we will be back soon!

I gave myself this assignment this week to write a mission statement for my life after doing some deep healing. Here is what I came up with. It feels bigger than me and a bit uncomfortable because I don't know the HOW...but I'm slowly putting it out there!
Mission Statement for the Life and Career of Christina DeRosa
My mission is to cradle myself with love, the way I would a baby in my arms, and see we are all really children at heart. My mission is to shine my childlike wonder and joy and share it with the world evolving through my acting, producing, music and any other gifts I discover. Through my gifts and talents, I will be of service to children, empowering them and reminding them they are perfect just the way they are. The world is waiting for me.
