Day 2 of the 10 Things to Tell You Instagram prompt coincided perfectly. The day’s prompt Someone who influenced me fell on my mother’s birthday. Combining them both together, I wrote the following.

Happy birthday to the best mom eva!!! Thank you for being my biggest cheerleader. For believing in me, even when I don’t.

Your heart for serving others doesn’t go unnoticed. You taught us love and compassion, even when its uncomfortable. Yet have been an example of how to stand up for ourselves, and ask for a seat at our table.

I love you from here to Hawaii and all the way back!!!
