I have many personal success stories, and I would like to share the most successful and significant one with you. At the age of nineteen, an age some consider to be a child, I gave birth to an amazing soul, and I was able to raise and guide her to be a loving, honorable, and independent woman with an open heart. It never ceases to amaze me how she is able to serve others and herself with unconditional love! Now I can see clearly how I was able to get through it all. I’ve always had strong faith –a firm belief in divine love and higher power that always watches over me and helps things work out well for me. That faith has guided me to love selflessly and to give not only emotional support, but the loving guidance my daughter needed as she grew. As I think back on this major event in my life, I am often stunned and amazed at how beautifully and brilliantly the universe orchestrates the events of our lives–how things happen when they do and how people come into our lives when we need them.
People have often asked me the same question, “Emotionally and financially, how were you able to raise a child on your own?” My answer is always the same, “I have God to thank.” It is very clear to me now that as a little girl I was already connected to the Stream. I am here to love and to serve with greatest joy.
I hope you enjoyed my story and I urge you to share yours with all of us. There’s so much love here for you!
