An Inspirational Woman

Our_Lillies

It’s day four of the SITS Back to Blogging Challenge, and today’s task is to write about a woman who inspires you.

Throughout my life I have seen, met, loved, and read about many inspirational women from all walks of life.  Women throughout history, women of different races, different colors, and different creeds.  To be a woman is a beautiful and wondrous thing – we are the homemakers, the  caretakers, the givers, the lovers, and the joys and wonders of womanhood are the same the world over.

It’s funny how life works – that the topic of inspirational women come only days after meeting a very inspiring woman is ironic to me.  Only a few short days ago I had the pleasure of meeting the mother of a special needs child for the first time at the home of a dear friend.  This woman not only has a very sick son to care for, but she also a daughter under a year old too.

As a mother of three children I know how exhausting motherhood can be – a mother’s job is never 9 to 5, and watching this woman care for her son and daughter really amazed me.  She seemed to take everything in stride, never missing a beat with her kids, even when her son went into a seizure.  She never lost her calm demeanor, or her bubbly, happy disposition.

I guess that’s what womanhood and motherhood is all about.  We take whatever comes our way with a smile on our face because we love our children and our families dearly.  They are a blessing and a gift, and whatever life holds for us and our families we accept.  We know it’s not all going to be rainbows and lollipops – motherhood does get rough at times, but the job never gets too dirty as my own wonderful mother would say (she certainly inspires me, and I love her very much).

For me inspiration comes from all of the women, past and present, who do all that they can to make this world a better place.  The women who never feel the job gets too dirty, who keep a smile on their face when times get tough, and who love unconditionally the people that surround them.

What kind of woman inspires you? Feel free to leave a comment and give us your thoughts. ;)

  1. It seems we look up to women that can come through a trial with a smile on there face and with grace and poise. Strong yet feminine. There are plenty of these women around us if we stop and look. Great post.
