I received another amazing email just in time to share for Mother's Day. I've titled this post "A Mother's Love" in honor of all mothers.
Clinging on for dear life to the side of a vertical cliff,
the tiny lion cub cries out pitifully for help.

“Invent yourself and then reinvent yourself, don’t swim in the same slough. Invent yourself and then reinvent yourself and stay out of the clutches of mediocrity.
