This Love Fest challenge is to make a card of encouragement for someone. My someone is my grand daughter Marissa.
Marissa is the youngest of three children born to my stepdaughter and her husband. She and her husband lived a "pleasure first" lifestyle and their children received little guidance. Marissa's parents decided to move out of state to "start over" and shortly after arriving her Father decided to leave and return to his girlfriend in this state leaving them financially strapped. Her Mother became depressed and things went down hill from there. The girls were left to cope on their own. The two older girls were quickly becoming delinquents. My other stepdaughter stepped in and took Marissa in briefly and "returned" her to her Father who was living a more stable lifestyle with his significant other and their daughter.
At any rate - Marissa seems to be thriving with her father and step-significant other and recently got an award at her high school being named one of her school's "Students of the Month". Marissa's future seems bright and we sincerely hope she follows her dreams and succeeds in whatever she does.
I computer generated the quote which I found on the internet.
