Welcome to the Inspirations Blog!
I am super excited to see our new site finally go live and feel a bit like a kid getting ready for the first day of school.
Excited. Nervous. Mostly, just grateful.
A tremendous amount of thanks goes out to many people who have contributed to our new venture, but I am going to save most of my gratitude for a future post.
For now, this being my very-first-blog-post-EVER… I thought I would keep it short and sweet and thank the one person who has shaped me (and therefore, this business) more than anyone else.
The woman on the right is my Mom, Regina. This beautiful lady raised me and my six siblings by herself with little more than the God given gifts of resourcefulness, determination and unconditional love for her children.
My Mom never finished high school, but (in my mind) she holds a Post Doctoral degree in Life. Bring her nearly any problem or challenge and she can steer a crystal-clear path for you to follow. Maybe because she has been there, maybe because she is just so insightful and incredibly empathetic.
She may not have read the classics, or be able to discuss micro-economics in great detail, but she has more integrity, poise and grace in her little finger than most could ever dream of.
When she enters a room, people notice.
People are struck by her warm smile, dancing eyes, and the feeling that when talking to her, there isn’t another soul in the room more important.
Maybe someday, my Mom will even do a guest blog post! I will probably have to explain to her what a blog is, but that’s just fine with me. I could never come close to teaching her all of the amazing life lessons she has shown me.
I am incredibly grateful to my Mom for all of her support and guidance in my life. Without her steadfast belief in me throughout my life, this new venture would never have seen the light of day.
I am one lucky girl for lots of reasons. But it all started with my Mom.

I’d love to hear from you and how your Mom has influenced your life.
