Photo of the day, day 68

She was 17 when this was taken.

The years have been rough.

A high school dropout because she had to work to support her family.

A bitter divorce; a second marriage no one in his family approved of.

Economic struggles. Job losses. Multiple location moves. Mental issues.

2 broken hips and Shingles in just the past 2 years.

She’s housebound now and in a wheelchair.

But through it all, she persevered, survived, and never lost her faith.

Happy 86th Birthday, Ma.
