There are some great political and entrepreneurial figures in the world … people who have really changed governments and businesses. Invented new machines and innovative new concepts that have changed the way we live and work.
And that’s great.
Those people are great.
But I’m asking if … as a collective – can individuals in society truly, deeply admire someone that they’ve never lived with ? That they’ve never seen react to tough situations. Or seen them interact with those who can’t give them anything in return ?
Can you really, truly have a role model that you’ve never met – someone that can inspire you completely ?
There’s a lot of women in the world I look up to in various ways. But I can’t say I have a role model that I aspire to be like 100%.
That is with the exemption of my mum.
Despite being incredibly beautiful, impeccably disciplined and containing more compassion and love in her little finger than I have in my entire being…
My mum is the strongest woman I know.
She genuinely cares for people even when they are oblivious to it. She speaks the truth in complete love even when it hurts. She hopes in all things and believes all things and is so loyal. She is my biggest cheerleader and my biggest critic. She makes me laugh all the time, comes up with the most blunt phrases and no matter how grown-up I think I am; if I need telling off she doesn’t refrain !
I admire her Godliness. Her relationship with Christ. Her views of the world and of others. She is the hardest working person I know. She never fails to encourage me provide for me in so so many ways. And is so sacrificial.
Dearest Mumma. You’re the most beautiful soul I know and I love you very much.
Happy Woman’s Day
