Mother’s Day is upon us and while I like to obviously honor my own mother, she’s not the only woman figure that’s help mold who I am. There have been so many wonderful women in my life including teachers, bosses, and coworkers. Add to them my mother-in-law and all my sisters-in-law, and you can see I’ve been blessed with a wealth of feminine role models. Each has helped me in her own way and I’m honored to have known and learned from every one of them.
From my mother I learned that life must go on even if it’s not the life you had planned.. From my mother-in-law I learned that family comes first and that we make our own joy.
From my sisters-in-law I learned that working as a team makes us happier and stronger. From my female bosses I learned that a strong leader doesn’t have to be b*tch or male. From my nieces I’ve learned to appreciate what I’ve already accomplished in my life. And from my friends I learned that life is better when shared with others.
Who’s the one woman that helped me most? That would be difficult to pick. At every stage in my life one of these women has stepped forward and helped me through it. So I guess my answer would be the woman I needed most at that moment was the woman who stepped up made her presence know. I only hop that I’m on someone’s list and that I’ve fulfilled my role with them.
So as we approach Mother’s Day, I’d like to honor all the mothers, sisters, friends, and family who have supported me in my journey to becoming a better person.
