Mother’s Day – The Big girls I have known…

Gift Muse Newsletter

Share this Newsletter


As I was growing up, I often wondered what kind of a woman I would turn out to be. Would I fall madly in love, marry and be the good housewife? Would I be a powerful career woman, or an influential politician? Like many young girls, I’d even dreamed of meeting Prince Charming and living happily ever after in a palace. Just like Kate Middleton!

Today, I look at myself in the mirror to see the woman I’ve turned out to be.  I ask myself what kind of legacy would I want to leave behind?  How can I give back to society in return for all the blessings that have been showered on me?

These questions have led me to think about the various women who have influenced me and made an impression on me.  My mother showed me how to truly give.  She was a shining example of unconditional love. My mother-in-law is so much like my mother. This remarkable woman has taught me kindness, elegance and the spirit of unstoppable energy.  At 78, she is doing grueling 5-hour hikes; plays bridge; volunteers at the local church and has the time to spend on her other hobbies. I definitely want to be like her when I turn 78!

I am grateful to my sisters and all my female friends who have given me love and inspiration, and taught me integrity. This Mother’s Day is dedicated to them and to all mothers out there.
