This Father’s Day, I’m feeling nostalgic, because my youngest child just turned 18. So, on one hand, I have completed my legal responsibility as a parent and a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders. On the other hand, my golden time of sharing their daily lives is coming to an end.
The year I turned 21 was the most tumultuous of my life. In many ways, that one year shaped my life more than any other and determined the direction of my future.
Since it’s coming up on Mother’s Day, I thought I would tell the story of my Mom, who gave me life and so much more. I’ve never posted about my family before, because I respect their privacy. But, my Mom’s story is so inspirational that I just had to share it with you.
