I just recently crossed that threshold, so to say I have experience, I do not. I can only attest to my mothers influence. A very accomplished, soft hearted, and intelligent individual. Her influence on our family, her courageousness, and determination have had a great influence on our family. To never give up, or throw in the towel, no matter how difficult the situation, or circumstance may seem to be. Rely on Jesus, remain calm, and confident that you can accomplish anything if you remain purposeful, and keep your eye on the sparrow.(told to me on numerous occasions) you will endure, and rise above it!! Something we all need in this time of current, and constant turmoil of a world that we currently live in!!!
