Q: What keeps you going when life seems to fight you?
A: I believe I could write for hours on how to overcome the fight life throws at us from time to time. The single inspiration that never allows me to give up, is my family. My husband and our three daughters have inspired me to get up, show up, and never give up. The motivating factor for me to do scary things ( learn how to ski at 34 ), and to learn all I can, is a promise I gave to my best friend before Leukemia claimed her life, “ I will my life for us both. I will do it all, for you. My life will be the example of carpe diem . “
