I knew Mary back in the 1970's, I was one of those troubled teens. Just as I was in the beginning stages of destruction and filled with pain, I knocked on her door out of desperation. She told me I could talk to her, I remember as I stood there, I just looked at her and felt she was looking right trough me. I don't know how to explain this, she kind of connected to a part of me that was the real me and she made me feel like everything could be good.
I had many more years of pain to live through but Mary was one of the few who sincerely offered her hand and that offer of kindness stayed with me.
I don't know if I ever read that saying that was on her refrigerator about children, but since the birth of my 2 boys, that is how I go about every day.
