She reminds me of my grandmother, a woman who loved her family unconditionally and struggled as a widow to raise five children. These women from another generation have a lot to teach today's women.

Grandma is blessed .... for her long life, for raising her five children and for asking nothing in return. How fortunate she is to have all her children loving her and loving each other. How I wish all our families could be like Grandma's. Omedetou
