As a Mother who do you look up to? Who was that one person in your life that influenced you, the one that makes you a better Mom?
My Mother, Donna, is a strong woman. She has been through some things that you wouldn’t wish on your enemy, but she has come through them stronger. She is a successful woman with a pretty cool career at the FBI to boot. She raised my sister and I all on her own, and did a great job. She took great care of us, and taught us things that we needed to know. If something around the house needed to be done, you figured it out with a trip to Home Depot. We spent many a Saturday morning in there, walking the isles and picking up things to fix up the house. If the yard needed mowing, you got out there and did it. There was no Dad to do those things. It was a Mom, Courtney, Jamie adventure. As much as watching her install doors or MAKE tables didn’t affect me then, it makes that big of an impact on me now. It shows me that I can do those things, because I watched her do them. I can fix a toilet, mow a lawn, install a new screen door…and if I wanted to, I could MAKE a table.
She taught me that being a strong woman is taking care of your family any way you can. Sacrificing for yourself to make sure that your children have the things they need. Making sure that there are smiles and love. Sometimes you have to be strict. I didn’t appreciate it at all when I was 17. Now I wouldn’t have wanted her to do things any other way. I may not always tell her but she made me a better Mom by being strict. She made me better by being the hard-working, determined, sometimes overbearing but just as much loving Mother that she is. She has always been, and will always be the most influential woman in my life.
Who was that Person for You?
