Kelly, 49 years old

Name: Kelly, 49 years old
Submitted by: Her daughter
Location: Madison, AL
What's going on?: My mom has been through a lot in her life, whether it was romantically or financially. She struggles with loving her body and being okay with how she looks and that she's not 10 pounds lighter. One of her daily tasks to overcome is the number of pets that we have and having to deal with everything that comes along with them. She also is new to reconnecting in her faith and could use some good verses to help her along the way.
What do you love most about this girl?: While she has been through so much her entire life, she is still the strongest woman I know today. My mom is so caring and so kind and puts everyone first before herself. I have never met someone as selfless as her. She also has a huge heart for animals (like crying about one of her fish dying huge). My mom is extremely hard working and is a single mom with three kids so she does everything in her power to make sure we have everything we want, even if that means she has to have a second part time job.

After serious threats towards my mom and other unfortunate events, he ended up in a juvenile facility. He is in college now but he has not officially recovered yet.

However, he is extremely rude and nasty to our mom and causing her great stress and pain. Her blood pressure rises when he is in the room.

Submitted by: Her daughter
Location: Eugene, OR
What's going on?:  My mom was an addict of drugs when I was a kid. She has been sober from drugs for about 14 years now. She is most recently sober from alcoholism and has been for 90 days now. I send her encouragement every day but since we live in different cities it's hard as I just want to hug her everyday. She struggles certain days and I know all she wants is to be sober for the rest of her life. Some days she gets bored and I think that she believes that her hobbies that she loved would be a trigger for her. I encourage her to still do those things hiking,camping, bike riding, rock hunting and that this time it will be better because she will remember the moments. She is one of the strongest women I know and loves everyone she never has a bad thing to say about anyone. She struggles with confidence and self worth I know that she regrets a lot from her past and she needs encouraging words to help her keep going.
What do you love most about this girl?: She is so smart even though she doesn't think so and she is so loving. She is the mom that will give you her shirt off her back if you need it. She has always made sure that her children are ahead of her self but now we are grown and it's time to focus on her.
