Get Back to Blogging & Jump-Start Your Blog: Day 4--Write A New Post About A Woman Who Inspires You

I have decided that I need to put some "fire" in my blogging.  So for the next 5 days I am participating in the SITS Get Back to Blogging & Jump-Start Your Blog event.  Each day will be a different topic.  I welcome your comments and really look forward to them!  (Comments are the highlight of my day!) 

I want to thank the sponsors at Standards of Excellence, Westar, and Florida Builder Appliances who are helping the SITS'ers make Back to Blogging event even better.

Also, if you are not familiar with SITS, check them out!  It is a wonderful group of women bloggers!  I have met some of the most amazing women bloggers who inspire me every day!  The best part--they love commenting!!  Come and join the SITS'erhood....

Day 4:  Write a new post about a woman who inspired you.

There is not just one woman that has inspired me, but a group of women that have molded me and made me into the woman I am.

Granny Mom.  She has inspired me to listen to all the possibilities and always plan for the future.  She taught me how important patience especially when dealing with children and family.  When my first son was born, she was the one who took care of me.  She was there to help me and Knox until we got the hang of breastfeeding.  She taught me that babies are tougher than you think and that it's important that you take care of yourself so that you're there to take care of that baby!

Grandmother.  She was the one who taught me the importance of family.  I wish I could remember family lines like she did!  She also taught me that the most important thing is how much you make but the way you treat people and your family.  There was always love and laughter in her home and a strong pot of coffee!!  May best memories of Grandmother's house is that every problem  can be solved around the dinner table!

Mrs. Crozier.  She was my 4th and 6th grade teacher.  The most important thing I learned from her was that I was able to learn anything!  I was able to believe in the power of my own education.  I could do anything that I set my mind to!  She let me know that my imagination could take me where ever I wanted to go!  It was her that inspired me to get into education.

Moma.  My mother is the complete opposite of me.  But without my Moma I would not be who I am.  She is the rock that holds my world steady.  And she is my best friend!  I have always been close to my mother.  We are both only children so we have been close friends since my teenage years.  I wish I had the talent my mother has.  My mother is the one who put the love of music in me!  She pushed me to be the musician I became.  She has taught me how to love my family unconditionally.  She is there when ever I need her friend to help me drink a bottle of wine!  Oh what we can solve over a bottle of good wine!  My Moma has taught me how to be a Southern Belle but still be a tough little Tom boy! 

My life has been touched and inspired all these and more women.  I am inspired by different parts of each of these women.  And as I think about it, every woman that has touched my life in some way has inspired me!  It is said that you take a little piece of every person you meet--I believe that!  There are more strong women that have touched my life.  Each of them have left their marks on me.  To find just one woman who has inspired me, would be near impossible.  But it is these women and many more that have helped to shape me and mold me into the woman I am today!

  2. Beautifully written. I think it is amazing when we stop long enough to reflect on the people in our lives and see how they have influenced us and even shaped our lives.

  3. How great is that to have so many inspirational women in your life! :> "My Moma has taught me how to be a Southern Belle but still be a tough little Tom boy!"...Love that!! My wee girl is uber girly, loves her a whole heap o' pink, accessories, her long hair, but she can keep up with any boy three times her age or size! :> Stopping in from SITS! Hope you are having a fantastic week! :>

  4. What a wonderful post. It sure does look like you have some very special women in your life. Isn't it amazing what we learn from others that have been through things before us.
    I hope you have a blessed day!
    Oh, don't worry about the race car in the shop. It is suppose to arrive this winter after race season. The race car tires for grooving are already in the shop.

  5. Beautiful!
    I especially love the teacher's nice knowing there are teachers out there who inspire and something that we can hope to do with our students!

  6. What a beautiful post, and a wonderful tribute to all of these women! You are so lucky to have so many great women in your life. You are so right, I also think that you take a little piece of each person meet. I looks to me like you have many wonderful pieces to carry with you! I hope you are having a great week. This has been such a fun workshop.
