The Story of Her - A Love Letter to My Mother

Because of her...

I became a survivor, rather than a victim

I stood, when my instinct was to cower

I loved, when my instinct was to fear

I felt, when I didn't know that I could feel

With her support

I succeeded, when everyone expected that I would fail

I learned, when others thought I could not be taught

As a child

I watched her demonstrate sacrifice, while all around us people were taking

She taught me to give of myself...and to expect nothing less of others

 

From her

I learned forgiveness

 patience

 tolerance

and that you must always, always keep forging ahead

today I am loved , and able to love...

because of Her....
