I never knew how strong I was until I had to be.

I never knew I could function when utterly exhausted, until I had to.

I never knew I could keep going when in a lot of physical pain.

I never knew I’d die for someone until I made the decision to do so.

I never knew that I could drop my life in a moment’s notice to do for another, until I did.

I never knew life would include having so many expectations dashed on the rocks,
until they were.

I never knew that my heart could break and heal, until it did. Many times.

I never knew I could keep getting up, keep going, no matter how much of a mess I was.

Thank you to my family and especially to my son, for giving me opportunities to learn just how strong I am.
