She is my elogi, a single mother who managed to put her way child through school and get an education, despite the odds. When her mother discovered that her teenage daughter was going to become an unwed mother she tried ro persuade her to give him up but she refused, and never complained about the struggles she had to endure. Looking at her now, a successful buisness woman, you wouldn't expect she has had her share of pain. A strong Tsalagi woman who bears all of our troubles, hopes and dreams on her slender sholdurs. There is no one I know who compares to her. She may only be 5'2 but she is a force to be reckoned with like a storm let loose on an unsuspecting town. She leaves a mark on every person she meets. When I look at her and what she has accomplished I see a strong, kind woman who I aspire to be like some day.

" She is not a strong woman but a woman of strength." ( Dee Cheeks) who gives the best of herself to everyone. She looks at what people may call her lifes mistakes as blessings becasue without the trials and tribulations she had to endure, she wouldn't be the same person she is today. I am grateful for all she has done for me. When I talk to her, she listens without judgement and helps me to become a better person each and every day. She sees more potential in me then I even knew I had. To me she is more than just an aunt; she is like a mother.
