WE never know what we are capable of until we are put to the test. I never thought I could survive without my kids, but SURVIVE, I did! Never give up when the going gets tough … you have to make sacrifices if you want to accomplish anything in life – when you are faced with hardships in life, you need to dig deep down within and find the resources to propel you forward. It is remarkable that we do not know what we are capable of until we are put to the test.
There will be many times when you feel like you have nothing left and there is no purpose in going on, DO NOT LOSE FOCUS. If you children are the light at the end of your tunnel, then use that as your guiding force. Let that thought and that purpose occupy your mind and your soul – let them be the reason for waking up every day!!
And when they finally join you and you hear one of them say,
“I will not let my mother’s sacrifice be in vain,”
It will all be worth it a million times over. The most rewarding part about all of this is to be able to look back and say, I did this and I survived!!
