The woman I will mention first, is the single mother. She is famous -to me!
How do you say, ‘thank you’ to a woman who has suffered, but pushes through her strife to raise babies with dignity and strength? There simply are not enough words.
The odds were against her -since she began her journey unsure of her direction, or how to get there. She struggled with being a mother -not in loving them, but in her own ability to stand tall, so they could believe in themselves.
Tears regularly were shed, when I watched her struggle. I wanted to pick her up, and hold the child -that needed me. All I could do was, be a steady presence, in her life.
I wish this journey could have been different. I wish the children’s father would have found the strength in himself, to stand behind the woman he loved -despite his personal struggles, finding his individual path. Over and again, they tried. Over and over, they were blessed with a new child -another child this mother would raise -alone.
As much as she loved this boy -he battled with his own demons. He never faltered in getting his children, spending time with them, paying support -but there it stopped. He just didn’t understand! He couldn’t grasp how much more was needed.
The few times she faltered, he always picked up the pieces and took care of his children. He never complained -he loves them, and was strong.
However,….there it ended.
What this mother needed was a man who loved her. A man who stood beside her, helped her, shared with her. A man who cared -for her!
I watched this girl grow into a woman. She chose the path of helping others -as she still struggled to help herself.
Now, she pursues a college career to become a nurse. Her children are each conquering the world, one day at a time. They stand tall and proud of the woman -they call, mom. She is a woman I love, and cherish -and my hero.
Famous women I’ve admired: Anne Frank, Annie Oakley, Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart.
