"Ms. Pillowz sounds like a pornstar."

This is what I've heard, but "pornstar" couldn't be farther from the truth.  Sure "The Kids" are pretty big and some may apply the name to that, but that isn't why I chose it.  Earlier this year, I volunteered to be a mentor to a young girl whose parent or parents were in jail.  One of the questions during the interview process was, "What inanimate object would you say describes how you view yourself in this mentoring relationship?"  When it was my turn to answer, I said, "A pillow.  A pillow supports you, helps you get comfortable, comforts you in your time of need, and helps you to relax.  It's there however you need it to be.  I can be molded to suit any purpose." 

I apply that meaning here for all of you.  I'm not an expert.  I am on a journey just like all of you.  I hope that what I do helps you in some way, whether it provides comfort, support, or encouragement.  That is my purpose.  Your comments, stories, and other feedback are helpful to me too.  Pillows need to be fluffed!  lol  Ok, that sounds a little perverse, but you get my drift.  I'm all about positivity and growth from wherever it comes.
