Loving on Others!

I like being a mother to others!! I have been blessed to have been raised in a wonderful, Christian home with both of my parents. Today, so many children are being raised by one parent or by their grandparents. It breaks my heart to see the hurt and pain in their lives as they deal with growing up without the love and nurture of both of their parents. So many go home to an empty home or just have to cope with surviving through the mess that they were born in. I have “adopted” daughters and sons that I love dearly as my own. My home is an open door twenty-four seven. Many times the door bell has rung at midnight just because they needed to talk to someone. Children and Youth just need to know that you love them unconditionally. God has gifted me with the ability of love for others. Whether it is a text saying “I love you” or an email saying “I miss seeing you”, a simple call to check on them or a big hug, I am so excited to have the ability to do so. Life is too short and we all have love and kindness to share. I am greatly blessed to have a part in the lives of so many. SO@50 Happy 50th Birthday Stacy!
