my mama. She is courageous in many ways, and they aren’t cliche. Growing up, my
mama was raised in a less than ideal environment that included drinking and
recounts the times of holding the pillow over her head to drown out the
fighting. She told me that story without shedding a single tear. This is
because my mama told herself that she would never raise her kids in that
atmosphere. She waited for a man of God, and then He answered her prayers when
she married my daddy. She did not become her circumstances or make excuses. She
courageously trusted God and stuck to her beliefs.
firsthand three years ago. One day, she announced that she was going on a diet. She wasn’t doing it for other people, but for her own health. So she set out to
shed that weight. Twelve months later, the scale showed her 65 pounds lighter. I was right by her side each step of the way [literally]. She changed her
eating habits, and we walked thirty minutes every day. She never once
complained when I pushed her to go that extra mile.
faced with tough decisions or circumstances in my life, I think of my mama. She
beat the odds and statistics. She inspires me to face life boldly with strong
faith. I believe that’s what courage is – deciding to keep pressing on, even
when it’s easier to quit or make excuses.
