Life is precious and everyone should make the most of it. This book is about experiencing the joys of living in the face of adversities. It's about remaining loyal to one's goals and aspirations in life and accepting responsibilities for the present and future. It's about bringing forth life and being unprepared for what was required and being willing to learn in the moment as life unfolds. It's about committing to being the best mother one could be, because every child is a gift from God and deserves to be loved unconditionally. It's about never giving up on oneself and learning from one's failures and successes. It's about a hope for a better tomorrow and being grateful in the present. It is, also, about discovering the love of God and learning to live to please God each day.
