“Recently, my old best friend came to me and told me how I basically helped her out when she was homeless. I didn’t know she was homeless at all. The things that I was doing for her (we were in high school at this time), making sure she ate, making sure she had clothes, just because she was my best friend. She came to me saying thank you and I didn’t know what I did. Just for her telling me what was going on, it really touched my heart – because I didn’t know I did that for her. I was just being a good friend.”

“The woman that I’m grateful for is my mother, because she raised me from birth when she adopted me from the hospital. She’s the best woman alive... I’m just grateful that she welcomed me into her family.”

“Very early on I kind of took on a motherly role in my family and so as I’ve gotten older, I’ve continued that. I’m the one that keeps up all the traditions in the family. I do the Sunday dinners, so as the older women in my family have passed on, I’m the one that keeps the family together. I do the cooking for Thanksgiving along with my sister, we do Christmas brunch, we do a brunch after Thanksgiving, we do family reunions. It’s a bunch of things where our family can get together, travel from out of town and everyone comes back to the home house and we can spend time together.”
