    I will have to say my Mom has inspired me! She has been through 2 abusive relationships, she had 7 kids but 3 boys died at very young ages! She has had cancer, and now has a clostomy bag for the rest of her life! But, through it all she has a GREAT outlook on everything! She is the one who inspires me! Thank you!
