    Excellent and inspiring once again. My step daughter was eleven when she came into my life, and I was without a doubt her hero. She wanted to drink gatorade like I did, read books about vampires by Ann Rice, cause I did, and expand her musical horizons as I did. It was so much simplier when she was eleven… and I felt like her hero. Now she’s 21, and facing all the challenges of becoming but not quite being an adult, and at times displaying obvious annoyance with me as I try to offer what I consider to be helpful guidance. She is a very deep and empathic individual… so we sat down one day to talk about our conflicts. The most important thing to me in that moment was to reach out to her and let her know that I loved her… to express, send and have her receive my loving energy. I will always remembere her saying to me, ” sometimes I think you don’t feel like you think you deserve to correct me, or ask me to do things, and instead frame it as if I should do it because my mom wants me to to…” I thought about what she said and realized there was truth in this, for I am Kayla’s other Mom; and proud of it. The only words that came to me to give her were, “but Kayle it was so much easier when you were eleven because I felt like I was your hero then…” She smiled, her eyes twinkled, and she replied, “but you still are my hero…” and nothing more needed to be said. A most precious moment whose memory will never dim… and we are stronger now now then ever before… and sometimes, she is my hero too. Keeping moments like these alive helps us move forward, and get in touch with our light within. Namaste
