One may ask why?

While these addresses may be more recent, the ideas and principles behind them and in them are the reasons why I make it through the most challenging, more difficult days.  From the last seven years of experience as a stay-at-home mother, I have learned a great truth:  All things worth having, worth fighting for, worth treasuring are also challenging and can often push us to the extreme of our abilities, patience, humility and faith.
