A few years ago I bought a large picture frame, which at first glance I knew, was meant to be in our home. The inspirational written words by Carrie Latet, encircle the photo of me and my five children taken on my sixtieth birthday.  Carrie’s words, “The best conversations with mothers always take place in silence, when only the heart speaks,”  truly spoke to my own heart. Parenting alone for over twenty years, I have learned that turning to God through prayer and with a humble heart,  my answers always come.  I am eternally grateful for my wonderful family, what great teachers they have been to me, and how important it is to listen and truly let my heart speak when they need me.
