My mother. She is strong and persevered in spite of. She to me is perfection.
I treasure loyalty. Loyalty is so important to me. Honesty probably holds the same place as well. Those two are the cornerstone of any relationship. And they also go hand in hand. I’m fiercely loyal and while you can’t hold people to the same standards you operate in, you can for sure cultivate relationships with the people who do.
The last book I read and enjoyed was The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood. It’s a fascinating and emotional read.
