I am grateful for my mom. she is a strong woman with a strong personality. She was diagnosed with diabetes in her 20's, went blind and required a kidney transplant in her 40's sh'ea had two hip replacements and various broken bones. like a Timex watch she can "take a lickin' and still keep tickin'. She's a great example or "enduring to the end" and not letting people push you around. With some help and mostly by watching her I learned how to knit, crochet and sew. I am grateful that the Lord saw fit to let me be her daughter. here on earth.
