It’s going to sound soppy, but my mum is my biggest inspiration. Is that awfully clichéd?
My mum hasn’t had it easy peasy in life. She has had more than her fair share of bumps in the road. Her childhood wasn’t as easy as mine was and when I was in my 5th year of high school she and my dad divorced. She raised the 3 of us and kept her head up when things were hard. I am where I am today, first and foremost because of my mum’s huge influence. An influence which at times growing up, got on my nerves. But looking back I know I wouldn’t be who I am, where I am, if things had been any different. She is pretty much one of the strongest people I know and I’m proud to call her my mum. Always the first person I’d call (after my husband) if I’m upset or in some sort of predicament and she is always right there with words of wisdom. She’s an amazing Grandma too. If I could be anything like my mum is some day, then I’d be pretty awesome! 🙂
