Magnolia Creek Talent Show

Talent Show at Mag Creek!

The clients put on a talent show for everyone yesterday and it was fantastic! Some clients wrote poems, raps, and songs. Others showed us how to make salt dough ornaments or how to doa back bend. We had so much fun expressing ourselves and we wanted to share this with y'all! 

Excerpt from "Twas the Night Before Christmas at Magnolia Creek" 

While visions of the day danced in their heads;
Nina in her fancy shoes
Maggie, "What does that bring up for you?"

When riding out in the Creek van
There arose such a clatter
Val sprang up from her seat
"What's the matter?"

Away to the window she flew with a flash
Signal Shannon she said with a dash

With a fine "No" as she often said
"Let's hear an amen" as Shannon fled

The group room with sleepy heads
Leslie says, "Get off the couch,
We are here to process, not to slouch."

When what to my wondering eye should appear
But Jamie and Jessica with a sneer

With a little sweet driver so lovely and quick,
Ann Marie can't find Dairy Queen
- What a fit

 

We'll keep posting more pieces by clients and staff to share with you all, so keep checking back for more! 

A Change of Pace

A Poem by a Magnolia Creek Client

In a world full of lonesome and drama

Where I continuously feel alone

I can't find the right words and meanings 

Or the correct path to go down

 

Riddled by low self esteem

And caught in the muddle of thought

My mind races around and around

And I can't help but let go

 

However the past has gone now

And my future ahead looks bright

I have the heart and the courage 

To make it through another night

 

I know I can flip the story

And start a new chapter in my book

Find ways to feel truly happy

Not based on the way I look

 

I could write raps, write poems and create art

All relating to how I feel

I'm starting to feel real good at heart

Allowing myself to heal

 

Connect myself through nature

Appreciating the world around me

Not comparing my self value to him or her

Just looking at God's beauty I see

 

Spend more quality time with friends

And have laughs and fun with family

I no longer wish for my life to end

That's not the definition of me

 

Channel thought and energy to production 

Create a genuinely happy version of me

Not let the violators act as suction

And take a tight grip of me

 

I'm learning to deal with my thoughts now

I feel peace and contentment inside

I don't overanalyze who, what and who

And my pain I no longer hide

 

I'm a passionate and refreshed new person

My imperfections and flaws are alright

My uniqueness brings out a big bright sun

And I'm no longer scared of the night

Cooking Group - French Onion Soup & Cuban

Cooking Group 10 Fotor

This week, the clients had the chance to learn how to cook French onion soup and a roast beef Cuban with a demi-dijob reduction sauce. Cooking group allows a time for clients to become reacquainted with the kitchen and form a healthy relationship with the kitchen and food. Through our chef's guidance, clients have the opportunity to make Wednesday's lunch - and it's never anything ordinary!

Cooking Group 10.05.16

Chef John keeps the clients interested by making the experience fun and informative. He makes sure to describe each step in detail, but keeps the group extremely upbeat and exciting. We love Wednesdays just because it's Cooking Group day! Check back each week to see what the clients are learning about in the kitchen!
