Angela sometimes brought her children, ages eight and 10, with her to see her counselor. One day, after a few visits with their mom, they asked the counselor’s favorite colors. Soon after, they came from the playroom with a bracelet made of those favorite colors. They also made a plate with a “C” of fuzzy balls that were glued to the plate. On one of the plates was a written note that said “thanks for helping mommy, Love, John.” It means a lot that they took the time to do this and to say thank you. They were very grateful that someone was helping their mom.
