I write about my cousin Martha frequently. I love her and she inspires me to be a better person. She’s a fighter and she’s looked breast cancer in the face 3 times now and not backed down.
Recently I wrote an article about her that was published on Heartlight.org called, The Prize. Basically the article talks about how sometimes in life one bad thing after another happens to people to the point where we think, “If one more bad thing happens I can’t handle it!” Martha has been through loss of a home due to a hurricane, cancer 3 times, her home was broken into and many items were stolen and recently lightening struck their home and destroyed most of their appliances and televisions.
My Aunt Roberta read the article on Heartlight.com and wrote me to ask that I write an article and tell Martha’s story from a different angle. She wanted me to talk about the importance of reaching out to others and how wonderful Martha’s friends and church family have been to help. Funny thing was, I didn’t have to write the article because she did! In telling me what I should write about she actually said it much better than I could have. So, thank you Aunt Roberta for a great article!
