To me, mercy means unconditional compassion and kindness. My grandmother taught me the importance of the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Being a new mom, I continually count my blessings to have a healthy baby, food on our table, and a roof over our heads. I give to Mercy Housing to help others who are also raising a family and need a warm, safe place to put their baby to bed. Although my son is too young to understand the Golden Rule, it’s never too early for me to guide him by example.
