There are so many things that the unstoppable women in my life have taught me. My Great Grandmother was such a kind woman, she taught me love and acceptance at an early age. She loved openly and deeply and that’s one of the things I also see in my Aunt Mea.
Mea is one of those people that you meet and want to spend more time with, she lives her life openly and loves deeply. She’s not afraid to be who she is and in many ways has inspired me to become the person I am today.
One of the things that my Aunt Mea taught me is to be silly especially when it comes to being a mother. Having fun and laughing together is something I often see her do with my children and she inspires me to do the same and be silly and funny with them. She’s also great at communicating and has taught me to open up and talk about how I feel. That’s one thing that’s helped me as a wife, a friend and as a mother. Her spirit of adventure and life is one that I see in my girls and I hope they never lose that. They appreciate the beauty in art and in nature, just like she does. When I struggle in my life she has always been truly there for me and as my children get older I hope they can always turn to me like I have been able to turn to her.
There are often special women who come into our lives for one reason or another. Not having a mother myself I’m truly inspired by the courageous women who walked into my life and stood by my side, through my good days and bad. It’s that kind of love that inspires me as a mother and I am eternally grateful for all the ways she has impacted my life in a positive way. Being an unstoppable mom is something I never imagined my kids would say about me but I hope they can always feel just how much I love them and that I am so proud of them. Being a mother is my greatest joy and I hope to live by many of the things that Mea has inspired me to be.
