Five years ago today, I woke up to life without my mother. The words transformation and evolution don't even begin to describe the process. Among the many lessons that I've learned, the most important of all: I am strong! God has placed in me incomprehensible strength! Even when I don't feel it physically and emotionally, with his help, it's there...it shines through!
Sometimes, it's hard to tell which direction I'm going. I often get frustrated, angry, exhausted...the list goes on. But one thing I know for sure-I've seen rougher days AND I survived them. Down the road, when I look back, some of these obstacles will be mere bumps in the road. These "bumps" are stragetically placed to shape me into the person I have yet to become.
