I am fortunate to have tenacity. I am not sure where it came from. My mother says I’ve always had it. If there is something I want or a goal I want to achieve, I refuse to give up. When my children were alienated from me, I knew the alienation was not what my children wanted. I raised them, I knew they loved me and always would.
