My Mom’s Mantra

My mom grew up in what she called a middle-class family, with one car, hand-me-downs for the children and an ice cream cake for her 16th birthday. She endured polio as a small child, pulling herself up to watch the other children play outside until she gained enough strength to go outside as well. She didn’t complain often and was determined to do her best. Her mantra was “Do the best you can with what you have at the time.”
