There is another comment of hers that has rung true to us for years. We have used it on our own children when needed. When something bad happens, be it heartache, pain, childbirth, worry, dread or whatever, Tawana's mom's words came to us. "It'll be over in a minute." I still used that one often. When I am up against something I don't want to face I just remember, "It'll be over in a minute." And it usually is. And it seems I am always up against something!
She instilled the love of the Lord in my BFF too. Tawana possessess the qualities of a wonderful Christian woman that continually encourages others. And her mother passed on alot of wisdom to her. Lots of knowledge and experience. And unconditional love. But, her wisdom I depend on alot. It's so nice to have smart friends.
She says her mom was just a simple woman. I don't think she was simple at all. I think she was very simply wise.
