From age twelve I have lived by my high school’s motto “Hard work yields good results”.  Whatever I am working on, if I work hard at it, I am almost always successful.

For two nights he would wake up at three in the morning and would not go back to sleep for at least another two hours. Being a mother is not easy but you quickly forget the pain.
