I'm so proud of my momma...she is one of the new voices of the American Heart Association. Of course, she is going to be one of the best they ever had! :) Those who know her know what a great writer and speaker she is. I could never do what she does and I am so proud to be her daughter and friend!
Five years ago my sweet mom had her first heart attack. At the tender age of 50...(right, Mom?) Then just last year she had another one.....scared us all, again. We do know that she has heart disease and that she is one lucky woman to have survived not one but two massive heart attacks.
She has made the decision to retire next year. I know she will miss the kids and the ladies that she has worked with for 30 years. I do know this was a decision to help her get healthier and have time to do the things that she wants to do. She is always so giving of her time to everyone else and now it's time for some time for herself. She can also spend more time with family...we have a lot of babies to rock, baseball games to see and dance recitals to attend...and all the while help more people understand the seriousness of heart disease.
We have always said that God isn't finished with her yet, and we are so glad. I think this new deal is right up her alley and I couldn't be happier for her......You go get 'em, Momma. I love you.
