I became a great mom after having a hard life growing up and raising my three kids a lone .i am 52yrs old but look 40 i enjoy caring for the old people and children also because i have a lot of love to give and i care alot for people and i love helping then out and learning new things and also teaching then things also i just love helping people i see older people at my job now and love seeing then smile at me and asking them if they need anything else caring for people has always been the way i have been in life and i enjoy it alot and have fun doing it to linda
