Let me tell you about a woman that I have looked up to all my life.  This women has not only showed me the way to live my life to the fullest but she has given me the tools to make my life what I want it to be and much more.  She is one of my reasons for living and the person who has given me life.  Now, I know that most people feel that there mother is the best mother in the world; Let me tell you why my mom is not only the best mother but also my best friend. 


When I was 12 we found out that I was dieing from cancer and the doctors said that I only had 6 months to live.  Only being 12 years old had I no idea of the things that were to come next.  My mother cried a lot, however she prayed often.  She used to come to my hospital room and tell not only me, but my doctors that it was not my time and that there had to be a way to help me. 


 Well one day I was tired, just tired of being sick so I asked my mother if we could just stop everything and if she would just let me die?  Her eyes got big (I will never forget that look) and she told me that life is good; God has big plans for me.  Never give up, because you are going to live; a lot of other things were said that day between my mom and me.  This was the day that I looked at life different and it was also the day that my mother became my best friend.


I’m a stronger woman because it took a very strong woman like my mother to raise me.  Don’t get me wrong we don’t always feel the same way about everything however, her values on life have been passed down to me. 


 When I was 20 years old my mother told me that “I want you and your sister to always have somewhere to go, just in case something was to happen to me.”  She said that “renting a house is not the key” so, about 2 months later she bought us a house.  Now, she knows that no matter what we should always have a safe place to go to.  My mother name is Teraesa and she has showed me that all things are possible. 


I have learned a lot from my mother and I hope that one day I can fill her shoes.
