It is hard to pick one woman in my life who has inspired me.
So I won’t pick one.
All the women in my family are strong, purpose driven females who could give two shits less what anyone thinks of them. (What you think I got this way on my own?) With roots from Texas and Oklahoma and Mississippi, the South runs true in our blood. We are ladies when we need to be and steel magnolias when the time calls for it. We are all educated and have careers but always have a true sense of home.
The women in my family are forces of nature when the time calls for it. You never tell us we can’t do anything because it just makes us want it that much more. We are giving and loving yet firm and disciplined.
I was lucky enough to know my Great-Grandmother along with both of my Grandmothers. I got to spend many years with each of them taking in what they had to give. From them I learned to never back down when you feel something is right. To always stand up for the people who can’t and to never turn your back on anyone who needs help.
So what women in your life inspire you?
