The strongest woman I have ever met

August 1, 2016guljekrem

The lady on the right, Guljekrem, invited us over for tea one day while we were just resting on the side of the road.

We came back a second time to thank her. That’s where I learned Guljekrem’s story.

She once had a husband and several children; all dead. She’s suffering from severe rheumatism and nearsightedness, and yet she still invited us over for dinner and walked across the street in pain to get us gifts. I added her on WeChat where she said it was such a blessing to have us over and how much she loved us.  I couldn’t grasp how she was not a bitter, lifeless person filled with anger after having gone through so much.

That’s it really. Just want to remember this.
