They stand and they deal.” –Mandy Hale. Indeed, my mother is the strongest woman I have ever met. All along my life, there have been highs and lows, and ups and downs like a rollercoaster. However, most of the difficult times have passed unnoted for me thanks to my mother. In the past years, my mother have had to overcome so many challenges, such as economically as emotionally. After losing her business and her brother, she reconstructed her living – our living, our family. Since my mother had and has always been so strong she never let our family drown like she felt she was, instead she has always been the force that keeps moving on our family. My mom is my role model. All I can hope for my future as a woman is to be as strong, enterprising, intelligent, responsible, persistent, and faithful as my mother. With her I proved that God will not give us anything we can’t handle but that all he gives us will help us grow as a person.
