Strength comes in many forms
In making hard decisions
In facing impossible truths head on
In accepting that things will never be the same

Strength can look like a determined mind
Like silver hair and bright eyes
Like lips raise on one side in a smile
Like an attitude that says, ‘I still know how to play’
