This evening I went to a BBQ at a community center in my neighborhood. Many of my neighbors were there, some I have known for years, some I met only
once, and some new ones I just met.
My children were all with me, including my 11 year old daughter Mikayla.
She is very active in helping anyone who needs it, including planting gardens for people, babysitting, and helping one of the ladies on our street who
is physically disabled.
Well, I had one of our neighbors come up to me, whom I have met only once, but Mikayla helped her with her garden...
She said to me..
" You are Mikayla's mom right? And you homeschool your children?"
I answered .."Yes"
" Kudos to you my dear, for raising such wonderful children. Your daughter is amazing, and an inspiration to other girls her age and everyone on this
I literally fought back tears.
After all the horrid stuff my kids and I have been through over the years, somewhere along the line..I did something right.
