connieljohnson. Resilience. My mom has had some very serious hard knocks time and time

Resilience. My mom has had some very serious hard knocks time and time again and yet she continues to push through and bounce back. Just last August, she lost a son. At 82 years old she was hit by a distracted driver. She deals with chronic/constant pain, loss of her eyesight and mobility. And yet, she not only pushes through it, she continues to educate herself. She's a voracious reader of Braille's audio library. She goes to seminars. When I visit, I hear her asking "Alexa" geographical, political, historical questions... Always curious. She amazes me. I tell her all the time, that I am still learning from her. Just last week, at 86 years old, she was facilitating a workshop at Braille Institute. Words cannot express how grateful I am to be this woman's daughter. Mom, I love you with all of my heart. โค๏ธHappy Mother's Day!โค๏ธ #miraclemom #resilience #prouddaughter #happymothersday ๐Ÿ˜
