The average person will only endure one life trauma in their life. That life trauma probably wouldn't compare to the severity of one of the several traumas Pamela has survived.
Amazingly, after growing up with a distant and mentally ill mother; enduring a childhood of mental, verbal and physical abuse; an abusive marriage; an abortion and ultimately losing her mentally ill mother to suicide, Pamela still shines a light brighter than most anyone I know. She is a natural encourager, finding and praising the good in every soul she encounters. She is living proof that you can live through hell on Earth and still find the joy and beauty in life and spread love and kindness to everyone you encounter.
