If you’re going through tough times at the moment, Note! tough times don’t last but tough people do.

Have faith & be courageous, never give up on you or your kid/kids, love them for in this you will draw strength, care for them, raise them right, teach them love & be an open book to them, so that in you they can also draw strength, fight for their progress & success with each inch of blood in you & leave the rest to God to take control, hold on to your God, you are winning all the way.
A day will come when a single hug from your kid will take away all your years of pains & labour, trust me, it will end in praises, victory awaits you, .
Don’t forget, never stop loving for that makes you a stronger & unique soul.
