A LEGACY OF SMILES
My mom passed away right before Mother’s Day of this year. She was a fantastic person--a wonderful mom--and I miss her dearly. Her childhood was fraught with poverty, war, and the death of her own mother at a young age. And yet, through her talents, intellect and hard work, she was able to overcome all those challenges to become the loving, godly woman we all will remember. While sorting through pictures of her life, I noticed one thing that jumped out at me—her ever-present smile. Regardless of circumstances, the camera always captured her with this warm shining radiance. It’s a legacy that I want to preserve and share with all.
