How has your Mother influenced what you do?”

  • My mother has shown me what it means to be a mother. There were times when I swear she qualified for sainthood.

  • My mom is super creative and crafty and she homeschooled four kids, fed the whole family on a budget of $100 a month and her massive veggie garden . . . we really never felt poor, though we were for many years. I did stray from that for a while, but now I´m doing the same for my boys, cooking healthy meals and following her lead on the crafts. She had a huge influence on me.

  • My mom has influenced me in all ways.
    She is of the older generation and was your typical stay at home mom, serving KoolAid to all the kids, doing crafts, baking brownies, PTA and as overprotective as you can be. She did all the cooking and cleaning, none of the banking. Everyone loves her and loves her genuine personality.
    She has shown me all of what I want to be and has shown me all of what I want the opposite of.
    We are not buddies, we are mom and daughter. She is wonderful and I admire her for loving who she is.
    She is so proud of who I am and how we are raising our children.
    She is always supportive and always available. Everyone who knows her loves her dearly.
    I am nothing like her on the outside, but everything like her on the inside.
    I am very lucky.

  • Here is my answer she influenced in many, many different ways. I just did a blog on it (my Mother's Day gift for her).

    Please feel free to read it, but back away from your keyboard it may get wet.
