Hey guys. The link I've put has changed. The entry I studied is still listed but you will need to scroll down until you find the right one. It's from Noor Al-Hajri and goes by " I could probably write a book on the lessons Mom taught me, here are the ones that stuck with me the most".

Sorry for the inconvenience.
