    Hi Amanda. I am nominating my neighbor, Cheri. She is a single mother of 2 boys. Her husband was abusive and pays no child support. She works hard to keep a roof over their heads. Her son has numerous health issues and she hes many herself. When she gets sick shes in the hospital and has no income. The same goes for her son. Her work is commission and with the economy lets just say money is tight. She took down a oicture if her and her husband and theres an empty frame on her wall. Shes an amazing person with a great spirit. Tough situation with the boys father. She wasnt able to get her boys much for Christmas but she doesn’t let it get her down. How cool would it be to have a new picture in that frame to start off a brand new year 🙂
