Congratulations to the fabulous Kate Lawrence, winner of two tickets to my new show, “Sister Act.” Her answer to wOw’s Question of the Week — What is the one thing you are better at than absolutely anyone else? — amused and inspired us:
The one thing I do better than anyone else is make lemonade. Life has handed me so many lemons that I have become a master mixologist! I can, and have, done it all. I have been homeless on the streets of New York, but I didn’t let that keep me down. As a single mom, I have raised a beautiful son and daughter while working three (and sometimes four) part-time jobs to put myself through college, graduating at the age of 42 with a B.A. and an honors degree, all from my wheelchair. I have been blessed with beautiful children and grandchildren who are strong and independent, and I have great friends, all of whom love me. I have delivered pizzas, been a cab driver, and addressed the U.S. Congress and the state legislature of Arizona. As the big-six-oh bears down on me, I face new challenges every day — but I will continue making lemonade as long as I possibly can.
