A sweet lady with an awesome smile was working at one of the produce stands and chose a big bunch of kale and some other greens for my basket. Tammy has raised 5 boys. She said 4 of them are already men. “I lost my husband to cancer 3 years ago,” she said “but I just keep on going, by the grace of God, because if you don’t then you die”. She told us a story about a man making a comment to her. It was an ignorant comment and she just turned to him and said “ it doesn’t matter that you hate me, because I have God …. I love you just the same.” But this is my favorite Tammy quote: “I’m not all I should be. But, I’m not what I used to be and I’m not all I will be.”
