This post is brought to you by the makers of Pine-Sol® Products. I have partnered with them to spread the word about the ‘When Life Gets Tough, Women Rise Above It’ campaign and sweepstakes. To enter the sweepstakes, visit www.womenRiseAboveIt.com. All opinions and stories are my own.
I’m a mom of five kids, one is grown and out of the home and four are age 11 and under. I think of the time when I was their age and the things I was exposed to growing up in Southwest Philly. It scares me to think about the poverty I saw, the shootings I witnessed, the devastation that was a common part of life, which should have been against the law for a little girl to see. I didn’t want that life to be the norm for my kids, So I moved to a different state and gave them a new leash on life, so they won’t have to deal with the hard-knock life I had. And I taught them that rising above adversities means to also know how to get up and get OUT of harm’s way. They may not be exposed to the tough life I had as a kid, but I can guarantee that hard times will come. And my kids know that no matter what problems come their way, they’ve got to have the mental toughness to survive and persevere. I’m teaching them to rise above the fray that will come into their life one day.
And I am proud to promote the Pine-Sol® ‘Women Rise Above it’ campaign. Pine-Sol® is looking for inspiring women to share stories about how they too have risen above adversity. Please visit www.womenRiseAboveIt.com and share your story and be a beacon of hope and a light to other women who need encouragement and inspiration too. But hurry because the contest is in its last stages and ends January 31st!

From November 1, 2013 through January 31, 2014, women across the country are encouraged to contribute their own stories of triumph to Pine-Sol’s moving collection of stories by visiting www.womenRiseAboveIt.com.
