At my sister’s dance studio, there are these two sisters who dance together. When it was time to order costumes, for whatever reason, their mother dropped the ball and only ordered one. So two hard working sisters would have only one costume to share. And because of the late costume order date, there was nothing that their teacher could do. The two sisters would have to take turns dancing in competitions.
My mother, being the superhero that she is, decided to fix this. She made it her mission to find a costume, so that both sisters would have the chance to dance on stage - together. When she couldn’t find a dress, she took time to research and buy materials to sew one. The dress she made turned out amazing, and I cannot wait to see it on stage. The smiles on these sisters will be unreal.
I am not a dancer, and I don’t know these girls personally. My mom is just a rock star. When she heard this story, she couldn’t let one sister sit out on the sidelines, just because her mother screwed up. She made a dress from scratch, and therefore impacted these sisters’ year in a fantastic way without ever asking for recognition or anything in return.
My mother is the biggest role model in my life. I truly do want to be just like her when I grow up.
