    Does It Matter

    Children

    I have an immense love for children!  Children are the innocence of life and I wish I could find something to keep them that way forever! Never walk past a child without smiling, without smelling their hair.  Give them love like it is the last love you will ever give...

    My Nature

    It has always been in my nature to comfort those who are hurt. I think that I get my compassion from my grandparents. Of course being an empath has a lot to do with it too.  But sometimes being so compassionate can be painful. Its hard when you are unable to help...
