"The woman I have always aspired to be is my mother, Mary Helen. She was patient, kind and genuinely cared about everyone; even strangers. She found good in everyone and she made all of her four children feel like then were her favorite. She taught me to think for myself, to never let anyone underestimate me, and above all to believe that I was beautiful. Well, two out of three ain't bad."
March is Women's History Month. To celebrate and honor women, I'm posting a different woman's photograph each day during March and on into April.
