My Mother: someone who makes a Difference
My mother does a great job on the life of her 4 children. My mother was born in 1947 in Haiti. She did not have a chance to get a good education but she knows how to read. She was married 40 years ago when my older sister was 6. Her husband used to hit her, so she decided to divorce him and never got married again. She chose to be a single mother by working very hard to raise her children. She is a brave woman who used to work for minimum wage in a factory to bring food on the table, to pay school, and also rent. Since those years, she learned how to be a wonderful homemaker. She always had to prepare something eventhougth she was tired. Instead of going to bed early, she had to manage things, she always wanted to use her day off by selling food, so she could save some money for later. Thanks God, in the end of her hard word, her day paid off by seeing all her four children graduated in university. My mother is the best mom in the world.
