Young girls should never have to go through losing their mom (or any close relative for that matter).
Hands down the most difficult obstacle I have had to overcome in my life is losing my mother to
breast cancer. She passed away a few months before I turned 16 (Nov. 4, 2004). I have had to
learn how to manage each day of my life without a mom. Believe me, it is not easy. Although,
it makes me proud to know I am able to confidently say my biggest asset is my strength. I mean
there are days when I honestly sit and wonder … how did I do it? How did I go through the rest of
high school and four years of college without my mom? Inner strength, I suppose, is more
powerful than I thought.
side note: do not forget to tell your friends/family… you love them.
it’s truly important.
