Obtaining their goal(s) is not within their hands nor mine. I am only here to assist. “Her most important lesson learned: “I am powerless like a rose without color or fragrance without God’s power to bring beauty and usefulness.” She would like to be remembered as the little mother or lady who gave joy and a smile to someone at the crossroads of life.
