    I think it is great. I am not the greatest at computers but have always had to work on them. But I have a few people in my family who can't figure out how to send an e-mail so I can relate. I love the challenge to do something Brave this year. Good Luck to your mom.

    How exciting! I keep telling my mother she would enjoy having a computer but she won't give in…still set in her ways a bit at 78. 🙂 Much luck to your mom.

    What a lovely post about your mom! She sounds like a wonderful lady!
    I am a 40 year old nursing student and can totally relate to her going back to school as an "older" student! My kids are learning some of the same material as me – pretty funny! I need a little bravery to finish get through this…thanks for the encouragement!

    Your mom sounds wonderful. I am still trying to convince my MIL to just read blogs and learn to use pinterest! My husband got iPads for each of us too.
    Blessings,

    Great post, Julie! I never thought about my mother being brave, but she was certainly no wimp! Now that I think about it, anyone who grows up on a farm during the depression, raises 5 children, starts what turns out to be what is now almost a 50 year old family business, while my dad's still in the Air Force, ready to retire…has got to be brave. Both of them are now in heaven, so enjoy your mom each and every day!

    Julie, your mom looks like a lovely lady and she is an inspiration. I admire her courage and I can relate in some ways (having to go back to uni after 20 years!). I will definitely pop over to her blogs and follow. God bless x

    Dear Julie,
    Your mom seems like a remarkable lady. I am new to your blog so I linked over to your story about your dad and his illness. I just lost my mom on New Year's Day to leukemia. Before she was diagnosed, she had a disease called MDS that meant years of treatments, doctors, transfusions, and worry. When we learned she had leukemia, we knew it was bad but were not prepared for how quickly it took her from us. She was diagnosed on December 14, hospitalized on December 27 (so we could share Christmas as a family) and died on January 1st. Our hearts are heavy and our minds ask why. My mom was remarkably brave and faced this terrifying disease with grace, courage and determination. I have been clinging to the belief that it was God's plan for her and I only hope I can discover God's plan for me now that she is gone. Cherish your mom and dad (as it's clear you do) every day. Life on earth is short.

    I can't begin to imagine how you must be feeling right now. I'm praying for you today.
