My mom always wins the honor of hero for me. She's a three-time cancer survivor, including breast cancer in 1999. Through it all, though, I've never once heard her complain about what she's had to go through. When the rest of our family was upset, I can remember her response: "Don't worry. It ain't but a thing." She has a quiet kind of courage and grace that I've never seen in another person, and I can only hope that I inherited a tiny bit of the grace she's shown.
