How SAGE & SWEETGRASS AT THE BRADSHAW HOUSE INC. came to be.
December 2016, already residing in Wake County, working fulltime jobs Belinda and Derrick relocated her father Leon to live with them, making them instant caretakers. During the weeks ahead Belinda noticed that her father showed mild signs of depression from missing his hometown, friends, his Meherrin Nation tribal family, and most importantly his aging mother. Derrick encouraged Belinda to look into housing options for them in the town of Ahoskie, NC. Within weeks of researching, communicating with people, and signing paperwork they were packing up and transitioning to Hertford County. They were now owners of a historical piece of Ahoskie, NC and all with the blessings of Belinda's father LEON BRADSHAW BROWN.
Native Americans and other indigenous peoples have burned sage for centuries as part of a spiritual ritual to cleanse a person or space, and to promote healing and wisdom.
Sweetgrass symbolizes protection and healing in many Native cultures, and is considered to drive out evil influences and ward off bad luck.
Mr. Leon Bradshaw Brown.
Being caretakers, Derrick and Belinda know exactly what it takes in providing EXCELLENT CARE!
Belinda and Derrick take pride in helping others.
