I think commitment is the glue that holds relationships together.
At age 14, I committed my life to Jesus Christ.
At age 20, I committed my life in marriage to my husband.
At age 30, I committed my life in motherhood to extend unconditional love and pray unceasingly for my first child.
At 35, I did the same for my second child.
At 37, my third child.
At 43, I committed my service and loyalty to my church.
Today, I'm continuing in each of these relationships. Were there times I wanted to quit? Was it hard to keep those commitments? Of course! But I decided a long time ago, that although I am imperfect in many many ways, one quality I wanted to cultivate in my life is that I am not a quitter.
I believe in those famous words of Winston Churchill, "Never never never never give up."
And I never shall.
