I truly hope that the last two blog entries have provided some insight to the strong spirited woman that my mother was. I don’t think climbing mountains was ever in her sights but if it had been, I’m sure she would have accomplished that too if not for her illness.
I have spent a lot of time lately thinking about the will to forge ahead in the face of incredible challenges. Too many times we become our own obstacle to accomplishing what we want. However, when there isn’t a choice – when strength is the only option – it is amazing how strong we can become and what we can achieve.
