Joelle’s tales:  First Thursday of the month #TMAT120 #writing #prompt for July – My Cousin Diana

tmat120

Today’s prompt is:  Your most eccentric family member.

My most eccentric family member is a cousin, who has spent so many of the past 30 years helping the local refugee population.

My cousin is a woman of great virtue and has this much admired never say die attitude to all she does.

Despite suffering at times the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, she pushes on in her quest to provide care and education for refugee families.

She stands up to the forces that might bring her down, she seeks assistance wherever she can find it, at one point I remember her saying she didn’t need any more clothing donations as she had nowhere to put it but rather needed cash as she was always short of it.

    What a fascinating cousin. A 120 word tribute to someone you admire.
    Is she a nurse or a teacher?
