Have you ever considered your mother as your hero? Even though she's no hero, she was our shero. She was much sweeter than both the black or golden oreo. Ethel Mae Andrews Johnson was everything a mother could be. On August 4, 1975, she decided to name me Charity Joiel Johnson. According to the Bible the name Charity means love. My shero said that I was her gift from above, not knowing that she was my gift from God. While molding me through the years, she was responsible for molding my siblings, Erin Johnson and Journee Johnson as well. It has been a blessing to have had a mother who was always full of love, while sharing lots of advice, which will always live in our hearts. So when you see us, you're looking at the product of our shero. That's why our little light will always shine.
