Tillie and the Wall Memories

Mother, did you like the story about Tillie? She saw things and dreamed things that the others didn’t. She had courage. She was persistent. I think she was determined too. 

You were determined. You were very persistent. You would not let us give up. I appreciate that, Mother. I want to thank you for that. 

I want to thank you for encouraging me to dream and to go beyond. Make new friends. Explore new places. I like going to new places. I like making new friends. I like helping people meet and appreciate each other. 

Thank you for helping me be courageous, even independent, despite the times you would rather I had not been.
