Hi ladies,

Who would you say was your greatest inspiration as child? What about as an adult?

An author, an activist or a family member? Tell us all about your inspiration.

My mom for all of them.  She was the only female in her family to go to college and graduate, she was a teacher for more than 40 years before retiring and she is such a strong person and handles everything with such grace.

 I would have to say all of my aunts and grandmothers and my mom. I always used to look at how they raised their children and how they cared for their grandchildren.

My Gram was a great inspiration growing up but she died when I was 11. 

I have some great friend who are inspirations now.

As a child and as an adult, my mom is the greatest inspiration.

I can't name any one single person.  Many people throughout my life have inspired or influenced me.  Of course, my children inspire me every day to be a better mom and person.

As a child it was my aunt. She was a wonderful lady. Now it's my mother in law!

 As a child it would have been my grandparents on my mom's side. They were the awesomest! In high school my youth leaders for a short time but they were amazing for that whole short time. Once out of school a singer named Rich Mullins who was then killed and a Pastor of mine for several years. I love people who have wisdom to see beyond the current situation and all of these people did just that.

 Hmm, I suppose my parents would have both been an inspiration to me. They inspired me to be strong, true to myself, compassionate, thoughtful, caring... to go after what I want and work hard to achieve my goals.

My mom is and always has been my inspiration. She is the best mom that I can imagine. I hope I have been half the mom to my son that she was to her daughters.
