A lot of families need a Mrs. T..
She raised her 5 kids alone (her husband left soon after their 5th child was born) and then raised three grandchildren (when her daughter dropped them off for a visit (when they were ages 1,2 and 3), and never returned to pick them up).
All 8 children were raised in her small three bedroom, one bathroom home in the country.
She's most proud of her youngest child who is 30, working full time at Home Depot and is close to finishing up her college degree in night school.
She will be the first in many generations to get a college degree.
Her grandchildren and great grandchild also remain the light of her life.
The 9 year old great grandson sleeps over every Friday night and it's Mrs. T.'s favorite day of the week knowing he'll be there.
Like so many other unsung heroes, she makes the world a better place with her unselfish love.
