My mother in law has been a true blessing, not only to me, but to immeasurable others.
Lindy's entire life has been dedicated to helping others. She helps her family, and she helps complete strangers who become family. Just since I've known her, she has helped send a young man in Haiti to college; she helped a Hispanic mother who was brought to the United States as a child herself secure her citizenship, and encouraged a young mother to look for better employment, and therefore a better life.
She has also dedicated herself to making life better for her sisters and their children. She supported the launch of her sister’s business – financially, emotionally, and intellectually. She has bought Christmas presents for her nephew every year because otherwise he would have none. She watches my son unselfishly every day because we can't afford day care, and now has guardianship of her teenage granddaughter.
She isn’t someone of great financial means, and she has been through enough drama and pain to have given up. But she doesn’t.
I am so grateful for her help, and even more so for her example.
