Part 9 in the series 30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me.
Seriously? I am currently nursing a bad back with muscle relaxers that work but also make me want to fall asleep sitting here. And now somehow I am supposed to come up with 10 people who influenced me and why. In the interest of being able to actually finish this post, I am going to stop at 3 or 4 people. I pray this is coherent.
1. My mom. She is my mom, so how she could she not be influential? She is the one I try to be like. Sure, she made mistakes but I always knew she was there for me. I always knew that no matter what I needed, she would be there. I hope that one day you both feel about me the same way I feel about her.
2. My dad. Much like my mom, my dad was such a major force in my life. He was my first real love. The one who was strong enough to take care of any problem I had. He was like my own personal Superman. But above all that he taught me how to study the Bible.
3. My siblings. I was so lucky to grow up in a big family. I have 4 brothers and a sister. And each of them have made an impact on my life. I know what it means to have 5 people have your back in any situation, no matter what. I have learned what it means to have your own 5 person cheering section. Let me tell you, it is amazing.
Who has influenced you most in your life?
