A Women Who Helped You...a Mother's Day Special Post

Is there a special woman in your life that has helped you through rough times? Or has simply made a special mark in your life, someone who truly stands out…..I’m hoping your first answer is in honor of your mom, but is there anyone else who tops the list?

By now you’re wondering if I’m going to mention someone special in my life, yes mom, you top the list, but for someone else who has touched me I’d have to say my grandmother.

My grandmother and I have a lot in common, she has a terrific artsy side to her that I just love and I wish she were able to help me learn to paint as she has in the past. My grandmother may not always be patient and often blurts out exactly what’s on her mind, such as I do, but I remember her telling me “patience is a virtue” and it took me a long time to learn patience but now I find myself quoting her quite often! My grandparents show a love that you don’t often see in elderly people, and that has shown me how strongly love can grow if you take the time to nurture it, this too relates to patience and as I look to my grandmother I can look to my future, as I look to my mother I look to a much closer future and not only do I see myself in my mother and grandmother but in my daughter as well, the cycle goes on….and on.

Mother’s Day is a special time to honor those around you and I embraced this opportunity to write this post for the Heart of Haiti Mother’s Day series, to learn more, visit Fairwinds Trading.
