You ask me who she is, I cannot answer she. They are my heroes; the ones who fought for me. Fighting through the fires, through the inferno, and I dare not see. They fought for their lives and made it to the top. There were times when death lurked close behind them but they avoided that too. They are my heroes; they’ve been through it all. Grandma and mama. You are like no women I have ever known. You’ve made me the strong person you see today. Always staying positive, even when the times were tough. You both are survivors— survivors of life. The beatings you’ve encountered, I can’t imagine so. There are many women out there with many talents but only a handful who truly care about others in this world and who are separate from the survivors and fighters and from the rest. You two are the treasure every pirate wishes to find—the lottery everyone wishes to win. Without your struggles, I would not know life as it is today. I would not appreciate the little things in life and fight for my dreams and what I know is right. You both have made me ME! And have left behind your mark. Both your presence’s in this world has made a huge impact. You’ve touched the lives of others and made differences too. That inferno you once lived in has changed to skies of blue, and although there have been some thunderstorms, you’ve both managed to make it through. Women like you deserve to be worshipped and honored because you are the people that make this world a better place. Self-less women who can do no harm. I love you both with all of my heart! Words can’t describe how much you both mean to me. You’ve both made a HUGE impact on my life and made me push through. I honor you both each and every day. If I may not have much, I’ll honor you the best way I can. With those words of wisdom you’ve taught me so; they will guide me to my future and into places that I may not know. You’ve both taught me life is rough, but with the strength and will power, we can accomplish anything. Thank you for the wisdom. Thank you for the falls. Without your existence, none of this would exist at all. I’ll keep you both in my prayers, never to regret anything or the times that I may fall. You are the strong women who will never fall.
