I have had a lot of people say they don’t know how I do it……or I am so strong. Let me tell you the truth. I am not strong and there are days I can’t figure out how I am going to continue on….but somehow I always do.
Take now as an example. My husband just took all my children to town. That = down time. Down time = thinking. Thinking = tears.
I don’t (normally) allow myself to cry openly and many who know me may wonder if it ever gets to me. Let me assure you it does. I don’t know how I will ever be the same again. I am only one person and most of the time am completely and utterly overwhelmed. I know many people want to help and many do. I am so grateful to all who have opened their hearts to these children. I really can’t explain how deeply each and every donation touches me. I have seen the children you are helping. I have spent hours with the children. I know them by name and I can tell you about their personalities and backgrounds. I am invested. It floors me when others become invested too. I am so overwhelmed by your generosity. Once again I am moved to tears.
