The moment I heard about Beautiful Women my mind just filled with thoughts of Liz. Mrs. G (as many of us call her) is our community mother. She is one of the warmest, nicest, strongest and well spoken women I know. She has dedicated years of her life in helping shape children and young adults into wonderful people. There isn’t enough time in the world to gather all the thanks our community has to give her. When families have hard times she is always there to lend a helping hand, with an endless supply of ideas in her mind to put to use. I remember a special time when she had given my sister and I some money secretly so we could be able to afford to attend our prom together. Mrs. G is also a wonderful teacher. She’s been one of my go to people for advice, an ear to bend, a shoulder to cry on if needed. She never gives up trying to teach all her children something new everyday. She’s such a strong woman as well. When heartache and sadness takes over our small community, she’s there to hold in a hug. Even when the heartache is her own, which was such the case when her son dies a few years ago, she holds her head high and carries on the memory of those past. Mrs. G is also a busy body, if she’s not at school teaching, or at home cooking, cleaning, weeding, she’s reading or on Facebook giving all her children words of encouragement and the occasional reality check. She’s driven to do the best she can everyday and live in the moment. I have known her since I was a little girl, and I feel like she’s expected me to do my best everyday, and if I don’t do my best I need to reflect and find out why instead of dwelling on lesser things. The older she gets the more beautiful she becomes, and age has treated her very well. She is such a great woman and I am very happy to have her in my life to use as a role model. She’s the grandmother many of us never had, or did have but lost too soon. Last but not least I want to mention her wonderful sense of humor in life. Not a day has passed where someone or something has brought a smile to her face. She knows how to enjoy a person’s company, and I swear her secret to staying young is her laughing. It would be hard in my old school’s community to find someone who has not felt the love of Mrs. G!
