    Awesome! Thank you! :)
    One story that i find inspiring: My mom works as a manager for a company that rehabilitates mentally ill people. There was one patient that spend 33 years in prison, and when he was a kid, he was in and out of juvenile detention. When he got out and went to moms home, he threatened her and told her hed do anything to go back. He didnt want to be out in society. Mom worked with, got him on the right meds, taught him what he needed to know, helped him get a job and set him up in his own apartment. Hes now one of the biggest sweethearts. Whenever we see him, he hugs my mom, gives her a kiss and thanks her for giving him his life back. :)

    Thanks! I love her. Shes my inspiration. Shes now trying to open her own business. She tells me she lives for taking care of her ‘friends’ as she calls them. In her part of the company, she has the highest outcome turnout for rehabilitating people. Im so proud of her. The story i told you, the patient is a doll. I adore him. Every time i went to work with my mom, i slipped him candy and i got a big hug and kiss. I was sad to see him go, but im so happy for him. Shes been beat up (a few times), stabbed once and threatened daily. But she wouldnt change her career for the world. I admire her.

    And thank you again. Email sent. :)

    My son inspires me. He has a profound hearing loss, but has such a positive outlook of life. Just don’t bother to toot the horn at him when he’s out & about driving. No point really!!
