Heart Of Haiti-Who's Your Favorite Woman?

I was asked to write about a woman that has helped me in my life. I would like to tell you about one very special one right now~

She worked hard all her life for everything that she had.As she came from a poor family and didn't want her kids to go through what she did. She was the one that when you went to her house she had homemade cookies and never was too busy to listen to your problems. She would make a pot of chicken noodle soup if you were sick and deliver it too!

When she was diagnosed with lung cancer~she stayed optimistic and did everything that the doctors wanted her to do. I can still remember the first time holding her hand as she had chemo.We were scared together but of course neither one of us would admit that. She stayed strong though and made sure that we knew that she was going to fight this too.And she did with all that she had right to the end..

I was lucky enough to call this woman Mom.She lost her battle with cancer on April 2nd,2010. I want to thank her as she made me the strong woman that I am today!
