Hold On To Your Dreams – DLR Throwback Mother’s Day

I was born in Brooklyn, New York.  I married and moved to Long Island where I raised 3 children. My husband had a stroke at the age of 43.  He was a hairdresser.  We had opened a beauty shop just 4 months before.  I  managed the shop for 5 years, sold it and opened a local tavern for 3 years.  I survived breast cancerand moved to Florida in 1980. I opened a pet shop in Naples. After 2 years I sold that and took a position for the state of Florida for the next 20 years.

I retired in 2000 at age 70, then went back to school to get a real estate license.  I worked from 2002 to 2007 when the recession hit the real estate market.  I obtained my insurance license at 72 years of age  but had an accident which affected my walking ability.  I still maintain my independence so far. I have had a full life with no regrets.  I have always had a positive mental outlook on life.   It is what keeps  me going for 81+ years.   I have been blessed and still look forward to the future with plans to go on a cruise and more.

God is good.  Attitude is all we have in life.   If I lose that, I will have lost everything.  I was brought up in a humble lifestyle.  Both my parents were European born with hopes for a future here in America.  My philosophy has always been to work hard, never do wrong unto others and the rest will follow.
