If you are expecting this site to show a person whose house is spotless, with homemade meals and desert made from scratch on the table every night, the laundry always caught up, my kid always acting perfect and handmade gifts given for every holiday, then you’ve landed on the wrong site.

If you are NOT like the person mentioned above and you want to come hang out with someone who isn’t a Supermom either, then you’ve come to the right place.

Inspiring Housekeeper Wins Breakfast In Bed

Almaz Gebremedhin worked 3 jobs to support 5 kids.
Her husband left her and her children. She got herself off public assistance by working extremely hard and taking care of her children.

Her children said, "She taught us how to respect people. She taught us how to work hard. She taught us how to love unconditionally. She taught us how to give. She taught us never to quit and to follow your dream." Her children have all graduated at the top of their high school classes, and all earn acceptance to Penn State University -- all on scholarship. Sounds like a good mom to me.

Her co-workers adore her and nominated her for this award.

With all the issues with immigration and I have my opinion on illegal immigration, but this story of an immigrant who didn't come here illegally, who came with nothing, was left with nothing, did not expect America to "take care of her" while she sat idle, but worked hard, raised her children right and became an upstanding citizen is something I admire.

THAT is what America was founded on and deserves this recognition.
