Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24
There is a mom I know who has walked alongside single moms for a long time now. This same mom once walked in the same shoes, and shared many of the same struggles. She has never failed to offer up an encouraging word or to bring a little laughter into the heart of a hurting woman. This mom met me when I was deep in the pit – of depression, loneliness, heartache. She says I’m a completely different person now than I was then. I sure hope so. I have fallen into the pit many times since our first meeting, but this lady has always been one of the people tugging with all her might on the rope to pull me out. She is one of a handful of people who has helped me to believe that God’s plans for me are greater than I can ever imagine. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has received love, encouragement, a kind word, or a mighty tug on their rope from Alyssa De Los Santos. Love you Alyssa, and I know you will always be standing in the gap for single moms.
