Hard work pays off in spades.
Growing up I never lacked the essentials, yet I never had many extras. Since I have gotten older I have been able to offer my children many extras that I did not have through hard work and determination. I am putting even more hard work in now by working full time, going to college, being a mother, and a loving wife. This will pay off in spades once I graduate and I am able to gain a better career in nursing.
