Woke up this morning to a cold, snowy day. I felt so happy to be able to go to work taking care of three very beautiful children. All of them have been abused. (My friend has adopted one of them and is in the process of adopting the other two.) I feel so very blessed to be able to care for them because I too was abused as a child.
This year I am focusing on being more loving and asked my Heavenly Father to teach me how to be a better mother and kinder person. Then pow, I was offer this job. What an awesome blessing and miracle for me. These three beautiful children are helping me understand my teenage daughter better. They are teaching much more than anyone can imagine. I now see how my daughter is asking for reassurance and needing to know she is loved. Also, I am better able to see how fearful she is at times.
These three children help me to be more loving to them and my daughter. They also give me so much positive energy as well as a free spirt that I have not had in years. I love being able to read them stories and make up games for them. It is amazing how special each one is, plus how smart they are. This is a wonderful job for me that I am so grateful for. I feel like I am exactly where I should be.
