If you haven't already realized, I love me an award!!
So, clearly, you know I was very excited when Cherry Chanel awarded me this INSPIRING blog award! I know why she received it.....because she has inspirational fashion style! She is new to the blogging world, but is already one of my must reads!! Go check her out.
1) Post this award on your blog.
2) List things/people that inspire you.
3) Award 5-10 other blogs that you believe are an inspiration for others.
4) Let these bloggers know they won this award.
My mother was and is a huge inspiration for me. She came from the poorest of backgrounds, born in a foreign country where girls were not appreciated, and her father was killed when she was just a little girl. Any one of these items could crush your spirit, but not my mother. She was strong and determined. She fought her way through the poverty and made her OWN way to America where she worked hard and long to build a life for herself and her family back home. She had no formal education, but was able to learn our language and work hard to give her daughters (yup, she had all girls) a rich life (both monetarily and through experiences). She was strict, but taught us to love each other, stick together, and be strong females. To her, women were definitely NOT the weaker sex and she instilled that in all of us. She died of cancer almost 3 years ago, but she continues to be a huge inspiration to me.
I would like to pass this awesome award to the following blogs. If you haven't been to them, click them and visit them now. Go on!! You will be very glad you did.
