I am a very patient, loving, dependable person. I am compassionate and understand another person's struggles. I am a mother of eight and have many years of experience with caring for others. As a young child I had a heart for babies and the elderly. At five years old I was so proud to walk my 80 year old grandfather around our neighborhood. Some people are takers and some are givers. I've always been a giver. If I see someone in need, I just naturally jump in with help. Helping others gives me a sense of peace. We all know life can be hard, so I like to make it easier for others any time I'm able to . We all have different qualities, and I believe caregiving is a gift. I'm so thankful for the opportunity of caring for my mother after she was diagnosed with lung cancer. I moved into her home, with my then 3 month old baby, to make sure my mom felt loved and cared for. I felt it was my way of honoring my mother and showing respect for all the years she cared for her children. Most people do not get to experience being with a parent when their life is over and I will always consider it an honor.
