You girls always make me so happy. I never had kids of my own, and I was sad all my life because of that. But now I feel like you girls are all my kids. It brings me so much happiness to know that you are all here for me. I look forward to seeing you everyday.

Our May Visit was one of the most memorable visits that I have attended yet. We made flowers out of tissue paper to celebrate spring and completed our manicures as usual, but there were many seniors that day so I was especially able to feel our impact that day.

One of the most memorable parts were when one of the seniors that I am especially close to, Shirley, leaned into me and said, "You girls always make me so happy. I never had kids of my own, and I was sad all my life because of that. But now I feel like you girls are all my kids. It brings me so much happiness to know that you are all here for me. I look forward to seeing you everyday." When Shirley said that I felt like crying out of happiness as I hugged her. I am so proud to be part of GlamourGals when I experience moments like these and see the impact that we make.
