Forty years as a widow is like forty years in the wilderness. But, like the Biblical story of the sojourn of the Israelites to the Promised Land, they wore the same clothes and sandals for forty years, without wear and tear, because the Mighty One was with them. They had divine sustenance. Same, with us here.
God made everything possible by giving me the grace to hold on to Him, and to my children. The kids and I grew up as siblings, with me holding the mantle of leadership.
I went through, and enjoyed the pains and joy of motherhood. Believe me, it is not a bed of roses, but it is worth it. This necessary pain/joy relationship is what will bind you for life. They will always be there for you later on in life. They will be your life insurance and social security, all in one.
If you mold and nurture your kids, against all odds, they will grow up to be useful to themselves, and become respectable members of society, and the world as a whole.
So, mothers worldwide, hold on to your kids, and be there for them, no matter what situation you find yourselves. You will be making the world a better place by this God-given mandatory act, and responsibility.
More detailed and explicit story of my 40 years sojourn will be made available in my Bio which will be made available in the future.
We are all together.

I am so impressed by your writing - I can tell you found a lot of strength inside yourself. I look forward to reading your bio! Are you going to post it on PulseWire?

Dear Lilith,
Thanks for your interest in my writing.
Hopefully, PulseWire will be the appropriate platform for my Bio, for global outreach.
As for my strength, it is not by my might. "I can do everything through Him who gives me strength". (Philippians 4:13 -NIV).
For real, it was by divine providence, that I was able to make it through the wilderness of widowhood for 40 years, and still standing. It is a jungle out there.
We shall be communicating. Stay blessed.
