The Graduate

My mother was raised in the country where education wasn't shown any importance. She married young and had four babies. After over 25 years of marriage she decided it was time to do something for herself. She went back to school and worked very hard to earn her degree. She was an A student and well liked by all her classmates. She became a Registered Nurse and worked for several hospitals in East Texas and then Saint Louis. Towards the end of her nursing career she was working as a RN for Hospice Home Health Care. She always stressed the importance of being self-supporting and not depending on others to her children. I just wish I had told her just how much she meant to me and how much she inspired me. I will always have my mother, my hero in my heart.
