MY ROLE MODEL
You may think that my role model is a celebrity of some kind, maybe even a musician or author. If you did, I must inform you that could be further from the truth. My role model is a woman who reminds me a lot of the picture above of the woman sitting in a chair holding her purse and a cup of coffee. She is eccentric, God fearing, and the most adoring person you could ever meet. From feeding the homeless year round to taking flowers to people she doesn’t know that well whom are in the hospital–she loves unconditionally and is extremely selfless.
I grew up calling her “Mama D”, my biological grandmother.
Mama D is gone now, the Lord took her home on November 29, 2011. She had lived for years with an enlarged heart which was known only to her because she did not want to worry the rest of us with her condition. Mama D was the kind of woman you could call at any hour with a problem an instead of getting upset about being woken up, or the reason for the call, she would pray with you.
There is on one in the world like her and I miss her everyday. I wish she could come back home to us but I know she isn’t suffering anymore. If anyone could have a role model like her then they would be the luckiest people in the world!
