From the time I was a tiny wisp of a girl, nothing would furrow my brow and make me more determined than someone telling me I couldn’t do something. I would do it or die trying. That’s not my best quality, but I will say God has used it for good. That’s how I stayed on the dean’s list going through college courses with two infants and a husband who worked around the clock. It’s how I survived when sorrow settled over my life like a black cloud.
