  1. What a sweet story! It is a true gift of Sisterhood when another woman comes into our life and accepts us and encourages, in spite of our own insecurities, and it’s even greater when she embraces our children, too! I remember the first time someone made me feel comfortable at a time like that! What a gift, and what a blessing!

    Thanks for sharing your story!

  2. Thank you! When I was a very young mom, a lady a bit older than I was at the time came to visit me. She was faithful at the church I went to now and then. While we talked she told me it seemed to her, I needed Jesus in my life. She led me in a profession of faith. Several years later (when I realized I was a sinner) I asked our heavenly Father to please send Jesus in my life to help me with it. Jesus has been in my life since January of ’74.

    Thanks for the memories your story brought back. Hugs, Darlene
