Heh. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I've been asked why I put others above myself... that I'm going to only get hurt, which I have many times. In fact, I've been told those same numerous times to stop doing that.

My question is why should I change just because it's no longer the norm? This is who I am. It's who God made. Why should I change who God made me to be? So, no. I could never judge you for those very same things I do. I give too much of myself, and I know you do as well. If more lived by your example, and not to toot my own horn, but lived by my example, too, I believe the world would be a much better place.

I love you, Denise, for everything you are. Oh, and thank you for leaving my daughter the sweetest comment. I sure do appreciate your encouraging words you shared with her.

May God bless you today and every day! *huge hugs*

You definitely show your friend is not the world, but God. Thank you for that!
