Everyone has a friend that they admire. It might be someone you are very close with or someone you admire from afar. I’m lucky enough to be friendly with a few women that inspire me, but one in particular stands out.
Her job is something I could never take on. Her job is to face people in their darkest moments and help them see the light again. My friend Barbara works as a bereavement counselor at NSLIJ. She faces families who have lost their children… mothers who have to learn how to say goodbye to their babies. The THOUGHT of it alone brings tears to my eyes.
I’m just not strong enough.
But thankfully, in this world, there are people like Barbara who are able to disconnect from the actual emotion and be strong enough to listen and to guide the lost. This world needs people like my friend Barbara, and that’s why I am calling her a “hero mom”.
Do you have someone in your life who you consider a “hero mom”? What attributes does she possess to make you feel that way?
One of the most important things any mom can do is purchase life insurance. Allstate has been helping to protect families’ futures with a range of life insurance products for over 50 years. To get a quote visit allstate.com/life.
