Mom and I co-hosted a breakfast for some wonderful women. Can you see their strength? The conversation flowed from losses and trajedy to personal triumphs and hope. One lady was a new great-grandmother. Another had recently been widowed. Mom's father has been suffering from agressive dementia, others had had husbands who had suffered personality changes after a stroke. These women have been cheerleaders, warriors, and pen pals to me while I've been living in China. A warm thank you to them all!
