My Amazing Mum

Fourteen years ago my mom was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. She wasn't expected to make it more than a few months. I remember praying to God we'd have more time.
Today my mom is 80 years old. She has defied the odds multiple times over. She is meant to be here and I couldn't be more grateful. My mom is, and always has been, my inspiration.
Happy 80th birthday, mumma!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
