A little goes a long way

Everyone in life goes through a struggle. At times we don’t understand why or how we got there, but we did. I know someone that is in the struggle now as we speak, but couldn’t keep up with her pride anymore. She has three beautiful kids and their father is not in the picture. She has been battling metastatic thyroid cancer for almost three years now. She just had her fourth surgery about a month ago and is now back to work. Of course we know life is not easy, but man when we get knocked down we definitely get knocked. Lissette, however maintains her happiness and try to remain positive at all times because of her kids. She believes that the reason why she is going through this is because God knows that she has the strength to fight. Like the saying goes God will not have you go through this if he didn’t believe you couldn’t handle it. All she needs is a fresh start in life to help her get through her struggles. Car payments, day care, after school care, phone bills, medical bills and etc is not easy for just one person to take care of with no help at all from her kids father (soon to be ex husband). Not really asking for much, all we need is a fresh start in life. Thank you for taking your time reading on what’s going on with Lissette and just know that she will get through this one day.
