Corrie looked at herself in the mirror, almost not recognizing her own face. No longer the face of a child, the face of a young career girl, or even the face of a newlywed. No, this was a face of a woman who had been through the mill, as they say.

As she pulled her hair back into a ponytail, a wry smile appeared. This is the face of a woman who has learned to carry on!
