Human beings are creatures of habit, every day we are used to doing the same things in the same places, for the same reasons. We usually do not stop to think about what we’re doing. For instance, having breakfast, a morning coffee, scrolling through social media, brushing our teeth or having a piece of chocolate after a meal—these are actions that we are used to doing on a daily basis without wondering why, we just do them.

Some of you reading the title for this article may be thinking that I’ve gone insane. It’s my mother, this is my way to show her how much I love her, right? Disregarding whichever justifications others can come up with, there is absolutely nothing wrong in being paid to care for a loved one.
There is something special about Ashton. I love all the children, but sometimes, there’s a special something that is unexplainable. His mom describes him as a ‘light’ and honestly, I think that’s the most accurate word to describe him. I have had the pleasure of hearing him sing one of my favourite gospel songs ‘Break Every Chain’ and with such intensity, and I am certain his chains will be broken.
