This school year cannot come to end fast enough for me. Not because I cam ready for Summer but because of all we have had to face this year. Our kids are facing different issues than we did growing up. Life for them seems to be harder. I don't know if technology like social media has hurt them instead of help them. This year our family faced such a hard year. I am not trying to push religion on you. Whatever you believe in or don't, that is your choice. We believe in God. The church has been our friend. I am so glad that my son has been able to count on his Youth pastor for guidance. I am so glad that he has a great group of friends from church to call on when needed. His school friends may change on a year to year basis but the church youth has always been there for him. And that gives me hope for him and his future that everything will be alright. In God's hands I have left everything.
But you know our kids are not the only ones that need hope. So do the parents of the kids. This year I learned how much a support system we can all be to each other. Not only did I need a friend but so did other mothers from my son's school. We needed each other to lean on.
H.O.P.E. was founded on the idea that all of us, at some time or another, suffer with daily challenges, difficulties or crisis in our lives. It is during these times that we may need a reminder of God’s presence and His plan for us.
